Since FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered, you will need to post a NEW help request.

I
n your new post, please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit and your symptoms, as well as the answer to the following questions:

- When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?

- Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

(A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.)

We have a sound clip here of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.


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

My whirlpool microwave mh1170xss-2 was working then a pop and it shut off and now it do's not work


The pop sound was more than likely caused by the magnetron failing and probably took out the main fuse in the process.

MISSING OWNERS MANUAL FOR MODEL gh4155xpq-0 Microwave


Do you mean the Whirlpool Microwave Hood Combination GH4155XPQ0? Most Whirlpool appliance manuals are available here: https://www.whirlpool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchView?catalogId=10561&langId=-1&storeId=10211&krypto=5QgxQhneFliXuEuX564wSQ%3D%3D&ddkey=http:OCManualsLiteratureSearchView . The direct link to the manual for the GH4155XPQ0 is https://www.whirlpool.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%208204919.pdf .

Sharp doesn't have a microwave with this model number. If you gave the incorrect model number but the correct manufacturer, please add a comment with the correct model number.

I hope this helps.

We had a power surge and now the microwave does not work, model number MH1160XSB-0 whirlpool, what could be the problem? We put a fuse in and it kept blowing.


Model MX6110XB. Nothing worked. LCD panel was dead. Unplugged and replugged; and everything works.

This fix described for the GE Spacemaker. They say problem result of a power surge. Apparently applies to different manufacturers; or does GE make Whirlpools?

The manual says "while in standby mode, press and hold the '3' key on the keypad for 3 seconds until 2 tones sound and the 'DEMO' icon appears. Repeat to turn demo mode off."
