Hi Nikki.
Sounds like the High Voltage Capacitor has failed. If the Microwave is still under warranty have it repaired or replaced. If it's not under warranty I would suggest to just buy a new one. Just in case you are thinking of opening it up and trying to repair it yourself, ""DON'T"". The Microwave holds """VERY HIGH VOLTAGES""" upwards towards 3000 to 5000 Volts DC, that can potentially KILL you, even if it has been unplugged for days.
Be smart. Hope this helps.

My microwave would not turn off. Door closed and light/turntable off, the microwave continues to work when not selected on.

Microwave does not heat if time is less than 1 min 30 seconds


Generally speaking, charcoal filters should be changed and grease filters should be cleaned about every six months, or whenever you notice they are getting dirty & clogged. Yours will likely have one or the other - probably not both - depending on whether it's vented or it recirculates.

A clogged filter will cause the supply of cooling air flow to be lessened, allowing the magnetron to overheat. It only takes one severe overheating to damage or destroy a magnetron.

One common way for a magnetron to fail is that its heating power is less and less, then it just stops heating.

Magnetron's will usually have a warranty of 5-9 years, but you'd still have to pay the installation labor.

You can save a $75-90 home visit by removing the oven form the wall and taking it to a local Whirlpool-authorized warranty servicer.

The date of manufacture will be on the model tag in the unit, and the warranty terms will be in the owner's manual. Many manufacturers will use the serial number and date of manufacture to validate the warranty in lieu of a sales receipt.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

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.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

 

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

 

At our site, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information.
