Question about Maytag MMV5000 Microwave Oven
The other day my wife says she heard a pop from the microwave. Now turntable and inside lights won't work. Also outside lights will not work. The microwave still works, but does not sound as if it is at full power. Any suggestions, or should I just replace it. Thanks.
The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
This often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on.
