Question about Whirlpool MH7135XE Microwave Oven
I cannot find this model no. listed.
Problem: Light under the unit (above the stove) does not work.
I replaced the light bulb, but still nothing. We have been told
we just have to buy a new unit. Is it possible to fix?
We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
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.
This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
