Whirlpool gh5184xps over-the-counter microwave no power

Whirlpool gh5184xps over-the-counter microwave was used around 2:30 today. At approx 6pm it was dead - no clock, no nothing. It does have power to the outlet it was plugged into.
Could it be a fuse? Please help.

There is a high voltage fuse in the unit attatched to the high voltage capacitor, it is the most common problem for microwaves not working. Also check the protective diode,the high voltage capacitor as well as the transformer if the fuse is ok. Good Luck.

I have Whirlpool gold GH5184XPS its not heating. how to troubleshooting the problem?


There will be a technical sheet hidden behind the controller assembly or elsewhere.

There is a YouTube video here which shows you how to remove the controller assembly in about 5 minutes.

You can also find it online here.

It may be a bad door switch, controller problem, inverter problem, or defective high voltage part.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Locating reset button on my microwave


To my knowledge none have a reset button or circuit breaker. If the unit is total dead there will be (has to be) a fuse inside the unit.

But your correct model # is: GH5184XPS4

F7 Power to magnetron

1. Check the door, hinge and cavity front alignment. Adjust as needed.
2. Check the operation of all interlock switches.
3. To check the over-temperature protection for the magnetron, unplug
microwave oven or disconnect power.
4. After 40 seconds, check to see whether this solves the problem.
5. If this solves the problem, check the cooling fan for proper operation or
blockage.
6. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
7. Check resistance of the magnetron thermostat. It should be close to
0 ohms. If necessary, replace magnetron thermostat.
8. Check that the control cable to the 1100 watt inverter is correctly connected
to plug P2 on the display PCB. If necessary, adjust or reconnect.
9. If interlock switches operate correctly, replace 1100W inverter.

From the technical sheet usually located behind the control panel or grille:

F7 Power to magnetron interrupted

1. Check the door, hinge and cavity front alignment. Adjust as needed.

2. Check the operation of all interlock switches.

3. To check the over-temperature protection for the magnetron, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.

4. After 40 seconds, check to see whether this solves the problem.

5. If this solves the problem, check the cooling fan for proper operation or blockage.

6. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.

7. Check resistance of the magnetron thermostat. It should be close to 0 ohms. If necessary, replace magnetron thermostat.

8. Check that the control cable to the 1100 watt inverter is correctly connected to plug P2 on the display PCB. If necessary, adjust or reconnect.

9. If interlock switches operate correctly, replace 1100W inverter.

10. If problem persists, replace electronic control.

11. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
