Question about Maytag MMV1153A Microwave Oven

Maytag Microwave MMV1153

My Maytag Microwave model MMV1153BA is less than 6 months old. It was working fine. When I went to heat a cup of coffee, I opened the door, the light came on. I closed the door and the light stayed on in the oven and the turntable spun slowly. I read the manual and it is not locked. I can press all the buttons but the start button does nothing. I don't know what happen!

Re: Maytag Microwave MMV1153

First of all, it's under warranty. So I would contact Maytag for a free fix.


For an out of warranty reply:

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya:

Just bought and installed a microwave model #HVM1540SN2SS serial #LR 900337B. When I start it, in just a few seconds there is an electrical buzzing sound and it smells like something burning. I have only...

If it's clean inside and behind the stirrer cover, I would suspect a bad magnetron.

If you've had it less than 30 days (or whatever your dealer;'s return period is) I'd take it back.

Otherwise, since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

I have the same problem with mine!!! I spent 58 dollars to have a 6 dollar diode replaced. Now 8 months later... same prob. Replaced again myself and working fine again. Just make sure you label the wires while working on it. I didn't and it cost me 2 new fuses! Hope this helps.
