Re: Microwave oven

Yes, it could be. The first thing to try is a "hard reset".

Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doen't fix it.

We appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Remove a whirlpool over the range microwave oven

Jim here. In cabinet above microwave, locate 2 mounting bolts.
Place a box on the stove top to support the microwave once the mounting bolts are removed (you may wish to cover the box with a thick towel or small throw rug).
1. Unplug microwave.
2. Remove both mounting bolts from top of microwave (they secure it to the overhead cabinet).
3. With microwave front angled down onto box, pull some of power cord out of hole (to provide some moving space).
4. With microwave hand supported, remove box from stove top (a second set of hands would be helpful here).
5. HARD PART- detach top of microwave back from wall mounting plate by placing a hand under the bottom rear of the microwave and pushing up. (Wall mounting plate is screwed into the wall behind the microwave and provides both top and bottom support to the back of the microwave.)
6. Lower front of microwave until you can see about a 1-inch clearance between the top-rear of the microwave and the cabinet above it.
7. Firmly lift the microwave straight up and then bring forward. It should be free of the wall mounting plate.

I was given a Whirlpool microwave. I think it's 6

Not really over the short term, if the vent discharges back into the room. If it is of the type that discharges through the ceiling, you could have grease build up in the vent over time. I found replacement generic filters the other day at Lowe's. But, I wasn't looking for filters at the time. Check there or a similar store.

Good luck,

Whirlpool Microwave Oven Serial Number MH660XW-0

Hi Adam,
Built in over the range? The models change so rapidly unless it is less than a year old there probably wont be an identical replacement, Fortunately the mounting brackets remain close if you stay in the same brand. Whirlpools can be purchased at almost any retailer like Lowe's, Sears, BestBuy etc. Measure the the original and look for one that fits that dimension.

Buttons including light, cook time, etc will work infrequently

Good news, even though the electronic controls (circuit boards) are different, the touch pads for the two units are the same. As far as the nomenclature behind the model numbers/letters, this information is rarely known or needed.

Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating.

Below are some applicable links for you for future reference.
