Rmc305pdq2 door error


please use this stpeps and fix it. God bless you
  1. nspect the power cord Unplug the power cord and check for voltage at the outlet. Also inspect for damage, shorts, or burn marks that can be a possible safety hazard.
  2. Bad door switch If your microwave does not work at all and you know everything is plugged in properly and the outlet is functioning, then also check the door hooks and the door release button. Using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check your terminals. When your microwave door is closed you should have a reading of zero. Once the door is open the reading should change to infinity. If these readings do not match up, replacement of the door switch is necessary.
  3. Blown fuses To determine if your fuse has blown out, which may attribute to your microwave not running, you need to pull the fuse out using a pair of fuse pullers. Lay it down and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check both ends of the fuse in question. If you do not get a reading of zero, then you will need to replace the fuse.
  4. Bad fan motor Locate the fan and remove the leads. Again using the volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If an infinity reading is displayed, it means that the fan has gone bad and requires replacement.

No power to microwave


Hello

Check the Power Cord

Verify that the power cord is properly connected the outlet; the plug might have been removed to make way for another appliance. Do not connect the microwave to an outlet via an extension cord or plug adapter; the oven must be directly connected to an outlet.
Switch the Outlet on

Turn the outlet on, if possible, using the switch on the wall behind the counter or on the plug itself. Some microwaves have a separate power switch that must be in the correct position before you can begin cooking.
Reset the Oven

Unplug the oven, wait a few seconds and reconnect the power. A power surge could have temporarily rendered the oven inoperable. The oven should start up as normal when you connect the plug to the outlet.
Check the Fuses and Breakers

See that the fuse or breaker protecting the oven's circuit is still active. Replace the fuse if it has blown, or reset the breaker to restore power to the oven. Stop using the microwave if it repeatedly blows fuses or trips breakers.

The cord become hot when it is in the outlet


If the cord is hot you are pulling too much current to power the microwave oven. Make sure the microwave is plugged directly into the wall and not an extension cord or outlet strip.

I have bought a whirlpool microwave wmh1163xvs. where does the power cord exit the oven and where should the plug in be located?


Typically the power cord on above the stove microwaves exit from the top of the oven. That way the oven can be mounted to the wall and the power cord can be routed up to an outlet in the cabinet above the microwave.

I have a built in Whirlpool Micro Wave oven that quit


if you open the cupboard door above the microwave you should see two or four screws/bolts holding the microwave up there. there should also be an electrical outlet up there where the microwave is plugged in. have at least two strong people. put some blankets on your stove top to protect it. unplug and remove the screws. it should be connected in back by a metal plate also. when the microwave is tilted down at a fourty five degree angle, you can give a little lift and it should pop off the plate in back. it is heavy. get a new one at sears or other appliance retail outlets. i dont recommend best buy. they really screwed me over so i dont send business their way.

NO POWER


Inside the microwave is a fuse. If you can, try plugging the microwave into a different outlet (use an extension cord). If it does not power on, you have likely blow the fuse. If you are technical, you may look into replacing the fuse yourself (you will have to remove some parts of the microwave exterior to get to the fuse). Otherwise, if no longer in warranty, you will need to have a shop or handyman replace fuse.
