Question about Whirlpool MH1150XMQ Microwave Oven
Everything on the display lights up. When I set a cook time. The unit counts down, but nothing else happens. The problem did not start until I tried to replace the light under the unit. It would flicker, I tried to change it. I took off the bottom panel, noticed the bulb was loose, tightened it, then it blew up. After that only the control panel works, but nothing else. I need some help. I've only had the unit 5 yrs and it gets below normal use. Please help me to salvage this unit.
I would first suggest that the door switches and door switch mounts be checked, but one of the problems is almost certainly trouble on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
The 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. Other trouble can occur as well.
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement,
disassembly information and info on our repair service at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
