    My Maytag over the range microwave was inadvertently turned onwith nothing inside; after a few minutes I heard a popping sound and now the oven is completely dead. I have checked the connections and the circuit breaker.

    Same problem here, same microwave - I was cooking two sweet potatoes on high power last night when the thing just died. I flipped the breaker, tried other things in the outlet, unplugged...nothing worked. About an hour later it came back on. What I'm wondering is, if the magnetron overheats, is that a problem that need fixing, or do I just need to not cook things on high for a long period?

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open. Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

I need a users manual for my maytag microwave overhead ove #umv1152baq serial#51360947


I did not find an EXACT match to your model number, but I did find an owner's manuals for the Maytag UVM1152 series that may work for you.

If this is a Maytag Microwave/Over the Range Hood Combo, you can go to managmylife.com and download or print for FREE. Just enter the model number as "UVM1152" under the "Manuals" link and review the manual listed to see if it will work for your oven.

For your convenience, here's a direct:

http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/14763/MAYTAG-Microwave-Hood-Combo-L0605243?brand_name_search=umv1152

There's also an installation manual available.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Magic Chef Over the Range, MicroOven, model MCO153UBF


I tried the usual things, then checked the outlet in the cupboard where the unit is plugged in.....It was okay, but then I noticed a separate electrical cable going into the wall at the outlet. I went to the breaker box downstairs, found a breaker marked "Microwave Oven", flicked it off and on and away the microwave oven went....It is now okay. I guess the thermostat had turned everything off when it became too hot....
anyway all okay now....thx Janet

Light socket is dead on my Maytag


Yes, this is caused by not disconnecting the microwave from the power line when removing or installing a bulb or by the filaments shorting when the bulb blows. This is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.
