Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

The only part working is the light inside.

I have the Maytag MMV5000BAQ Oven with 1600 Watts. The only thing working is the light inside. It was performing fine and the next time I went to use it, several hours later, it was out.
I suspect a fuse is blown but not sure how to remove cover to check.

If the fuse was blown, the light would not come on. The fault could be one of numerous. It is recommended that the appliance is repaired by an expert in this field. As microwave ovens run on very high voltage it is extremly dangerous for a novice.

My Maytag MMV1153BAW Microwave that is only a couple of years old stop working. I changed the fuse (which was blown). It then came on for a fraction of a second and stopped working again. I tried...

There are three micro switches inside the latch assembly. One of these absolutely prevents the possibility of the Magnetron being energized while the door is open. The way it works is if the door is open and the Magnetron is energized, it will act as a direct short circuit and that will blow the fuse. It works very well, unfortunately, that tremendous surge of current ruins the microswitch. Replace the switch. You will find this same information on the instruction sheet inside the cabinet.

Your high voltage transformer probably failed. Good diagnosis!

The economics are your choice, considering age, part prices, replacement cost, etc.

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

There should also 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.

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

Wiring diagram Problem - Maytag MMV5207A 1100 Watts Microwave Oven

This doesn't have the diagram hidden away somewhere inside? Check at the bottom edge of the control panel, transformer brack, or rear of the oven. Otherwise, you can find wiring diagrams of earlier models that may be close enough. Just enter your model number here:
