Question about Whirlpool GH7155XHS Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Turned light on. Several minutes later the light

Turned light on. Several minutes later the light was out and the microwave was inoperable. Did the following troubleshooting: verified that the breaker did not trip (stove was still working), reset breaker, verified that electricity was live at the power source (plugged another device into the outlet). Read the manual and there were no troubleshooting tips for this. Any suggestions?

Your unit may employ a switching power supply and these have a tendency to cease operation without warning and servicing these may require training and a piece of specialized equipment.
With the unit unplugged, after an hour or two, it is safe to open the housing and check for an internal fuse which could have failed.
If typical, these will be in a tubular ceramic housing about 1 1/2" long and 1/4" in diameter and can be purchased at most hardware stores.

Lg lmh2016st microwave shorted out after changing lightbulb now doesn't work


We see and repair this a lot. The problem is on the controller assembly.

There is a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

Fan & Surface Light not working on Frigadaire Microwave Oven. Model PLMV168CC1


Hi J W, thank you for your post! Let's try resetting the microwave by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the unit on. If both the fan and light continues to be inoperable, then there is a possibility that the control board is experiencing a communication error, a wiring failure or loose connection to the light socket. I would recommend reaching out to a qualified technician or alternatively, visit the manufacturer website for a comprehensive listing of appliance techs in your area that can further assist you.

I have a Jvm1090aw. After using the convection oven the microwave will not function. Is this a moisture sensor or?


I have a jvm1090aw microwave oven and for some reason it just stopped working. It will still count down the timer but it won't light up and turn on. Also there is a small microwave icon flashing at the bottom right of the screen. Any ideas? Today I tested it again and started it for 30 seconds. The first 8-10 seconds nothing but silent counting down then it turned on for the last 20 seconds. It then turned on again when I tried it immediately after that but nothing 5 minutes later.

We heard a "buzzing" sound and it stopped when I


I had a similar problem. Everyone said must be the magnatron or the fuse ....turned out to be a burned out (visually melted) thermal cut out switch ($12) on the top side of the microwave. Had to get down inside the top of the microwave. The cut out switch was tucked away right up against the the microwave box. Hard to diagnose your problem without looking at the unit in question though, could be several different things. However, my philosophy when it comes to repairs...start with the cheap stuff first!

OTR Amana microwave- No power, lights, clock or sounds.


Either your magnetron, cooling fan, or the magnetron thermostat is failing.

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

Amana / Whirlpool customer service is here.

Please contact them to find your nearest authorized service center.

This often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on.
