How do you access the fuse in a Maytag Model#MMV5000BAB

The fuse is inside. You have to remove the outer cabinet to get to it but be aware that dangerous, possibly fatal, voltages lurk inside, even with power disconnected.

My magtag over-the-range microwave (Mmv4205baq) is completely dead. It's not very old, can it be repaired?

It's probably the internal fuse.You will have to take the microwave down so you can remove the housing to get at the fuse.(I will probably install an accessable panel mounted fuse holder if this ever happens to mine-already did it on the little microwave I carry around on my work truck to heat up my lunch).

My maytag microwave wont heat up food> model #MMV1153AAW, serial # 10394151EN

HI. Your symptoms are a strong indication Magnetron failure. This is the principal heating device, that is used to produce microwaves that , essentially, excite the water molecules in the food, thus, producing the heating effect. When this device fails, generally, the unit will run, but not heat. This device is very fragile, and can injure you if you are not qualified to handle this type of component. There is a High Voltage Capacitor, that is used to help provide the necessary current for optimal Magnetron operation. This capacitor must be discharged correctly. If not, you could risk serious injury, during the repair, if it is accidental touched.

The Magnetron is linked to a cut-off fuse. If the magnetron becomes unstable, this fuse will shut the device down. It is standard procedure to have this fuse test for continuity. If the fuse has blown, this will be the culprit. Replace the fuse. Now, if the fuse continues to show continuity, this will confirm that the Magnetron has failed. I would advise to inspect the Capacitor, and HV diode for visible burn marks, or swollen top(Cap).

Access can be ac hived to these parts by removing the outside cabinet screws. Once the screws are removed, the cover can be removed, as well. Once the cover is removed, the internal components will be exposed for testing, and visual inspections.

We bought MMV1153BAS in Nov 2005 and immediately we had to have a service tech come out due to control panel would count down really fast and there was no heat. Now January 2011 the same thing is...

It sounds like the unit may be in demo mode. This is a mode entered usually after a power interruption, and the unit will act like it's on display in a store. Check in the unit's manual to see if there's a way to exit demo mode, but some of the old standards may be cutting its power off again for a few seconds, or holding down something like a stop or clear button for a few seconds.

My maytag # mmv4205aaq microwave has no power.The outlet does have power but the applianceis totaly off.Is there a internal fuse or reset switch?

It may be the line fuse, the oven thermostat, or the magnetron thermostat.

There should be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

We recently had a power outage & my Maytag Microwave model #CME90108BAE is the only appliance that will not turn on. Is there a fuse with this model?

the fuse is usually mounted inside the unit on the same side as the control panel near the back end where the power cord is.......the cover must be removed to get access to it.

Unit just died for no reason?

Take the cover off...comes apart many different ways on various models. Once cover is removed look for blown fuses...should be one on the main input near the power cord. May be additional fuses at the transmitter. Could also be as simple as removing input power for 15 minutes and then reconnecting; I recommend you try this step first.

No signal came on

  1. Make sure microwave is plugged in properly.
  2. Check that door closes completely and its latch is aligned.
  3. Check that interlock switch in door works properly (required for activating microwave).
  4. Replace a blown fuse if it's accessible, or contact a service technician.

    hope this helps you

It could easily be a bad line fuse and/or line filter. To access you will need to unplug the unit and remove the outside case. Inside the unit, where the A/C power cord comes in, there should be a small circuit card (part #237068) located somewhere with a fuse mounted on it. This is your input line filter board with line fuse. Replace the fuse, first and see if this fixes your problem. This is a 20amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at any hardware store. Make sure you place the cover back on the unit BEFORE you plug it in. It is not safe to have this area of the microwave exposed with power applied. High potentials in the 4,000 volt range are present! If the fuse does not correct your problem, the circuit card runs about $26.00. Good luck and hope this fixes your problem.
