Question about Whirlpool GH7145XF Microwave Oven
I have the above listed model that had a problem where it would lose power intermittently and then come on by itself. Lost power completely one time, took it down and brought it in for service and when they went to look at it at service, it was working again. Was cooking dinner the other day and had just heated up a cup of coffee, and when I went to do baked potatoes in the microwave, there was NO POWER to the unit at all. I cant get the inside light to come on, the digital display, the fan for the vent, etc. I have checked the outlet that it was plugged into and it works fine. I tried plugging it into other outlets and NO POWER to the unit still.
Is there some sort of in line fuse for the unit? Could it be the main power converter, etc? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as this is a great microwave--when it works correctly.
There is an internal fuse, and also a couple of thermostats, and I would be suspicious of the thermostat on or near the magnetron.
If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It helps with troubleshooting.
