Whirlpool MH7140XFQ Fuse to Breaker Problem

Replaced 20A Fuse in Control Panel of Microwave, but now the 20A Breaker @ the panel pops almost every use. Any ideas on what needs to be fixed to correct this problem?

    Originally when fuse was replaced there was no problem for a couple of weeks, but now there seems to be an issue. Don't know if thay helps, but thought I would give it a try.

There is absolutely no way to guess at the problem. You need to troubleshoot the circuitry with a meter to find the failing component

Power went off,reset breaker,micr0wave still not working


If the microwave control panel doesn't light up, then your fuse is blown. unplug the microwave. unscrew the vent grill, (2) screws at the top of the microwave. then you should see 1 screw holding the control panel. after removing that screw, gently push up then out. there should be a metal plate on top of the control panel. remove that plate and the fuse will be in that opening. remove the fuse and check for continuity across the fuse. you can also take a bit from a screw driver or drill and place it in the fuse holder. then plug the microwave back in, and it should come on.

Fuse location on wall mounted Whirlpool MH7140XFQ


The fuse is in a holder located behind the control panel assembly.

At our site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

If you don't find yours, you can download it here.

If the oven is dead, it may also be a bad magnetron thermostat or oven cavity thermostat.

The first one can probably be accessed through the opening behind the control panel, but the oven cavity thermostat cam only be accessed by removing the oven from the wall, then removing the outer cover.

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

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

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

Whirlpool microwave model # MH6150XLQ


Yes, there is. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number, you will find the fuse listed under the "Interior Parts" heading as item number 14 (part #815174). You can find appliance fuses much cheaper at the local hardware store. Just make sure it is the correct type and rating (refer to the fuse in the appliance for the information - these are usually a 120V 20A fuse). The reason I mention this site is because they provide excellent part drawings and provide part numbers. There should also be a wiring diagram located behind the control panel to assist you in troubleshooting. Please go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature if you require further assistance. I hope this helps you.

No power from Whirlpool.


IF YOU HAVE THE MICRWAVE PLUGGED IN AND THE CIRCUIT BREAKER TRIPS IMMEDIATELY WHEN SET,
CHECK THE DOOR HOOKS THAT TRIP THE DOOR SWITCHES. BOTH SHOULD BE SPRING LOADED. THERE SHOULD BE TWO HOOKS ON THE DOOR. IF O.K., CHECK THE DOOR SWITCHES. THERE ARE AT LEAST THREE. IF ONE OF THEM IS SHORTED CLOSED,
THE MONITOR SWITCH WILL CAUSE A DEAD SHORT ACROSS THE FUSE. THE FUSE MAY BE HOLDING BETTER THAN YOUR CIRCUIT BREAKER.

No power


The door switches are designed to prevent the unit from running while the door is open. You probably have a blown fuse, and it's a white or dark grey ceramic fuse of 15A or 20A, available from local big box stores or appliance parts stores. The fuse is usually located on the floor of the chassis behind the control panel, or mounted in the same area as the door switches. Also, I'm really curious how the door switch got stuck while cleaning? That sounds scary...
