The only 2 user replacable parts in a microwave are the lightbulb,
and the 20 amp ceramic fuse. if you have checked the power cord outlet it's pluged into and both are fine. It's possabbe the fuse behind the controls is bad. Theese fuses look the old car fuses only
not made of glass they use white ceramic. A philips screwdriver will normally remove the outer shell of the microwave make shure it's not plugged in! After removing the outer shell look behind the controls on one of the power lines there will be a snap in fuse the above mentioned removal is easy it will pop right out replacment is oppsite of removal. If the fuse is bad replacing it cost about $3
warning don't mess with any thing else if you do this!!! microwaves contain radioactive meteral If you don't think you can do it safely take it to a pro or buy a new one
Hope This Helps gota lot of good years out of microwaves by changing those fuses. Most people just throw them away microwaves that is
If this helps ya
please leave feedback

Not cooking food even though it comes on


Check the power setting. You can tell if it is on a lower setting because it will cycle ( you can hear it humm lower for a short time then the sound is different and then it humms the same again. It happens...it is new.

Tappan TMV151FS over range microwave starts to work and then dies


Never run the microwave without a load (something to heat)!!! That kills the microwave generating parts.

Sounds like a 'thermal' protect switch is activating after running. Make sure that (if the unit is mounted in a cabinet) that there is sufficient space around the unit for proper air flow and that nothing is blocking the vents. Try setting it on a counter top and heat something. If it works properly and doesn't shut off, the venting space is the problem. You may have to have the cabinet that it sits in redesigned for more clearance.

Whirlpool(GH7145XF2-0) does not work occasionally


That's how it would sound if you were cooking on a power level less than full power.

If you enter the cooking time and hit Start, it should cook at full power by default and not cycle like you describe.

If you are using some sensor cook setting or automatic type cooking setting, it may cycle like that normally.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

If you don't have your manual, you can download it free here. Check the lower right area to enter your model. number.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have a recently purchased microwave since CHristmas. It was working wonderfully. Recently, I moved and plugged the microwave back in. THe light is on but will not program anything. I tried to plug into...


We have the same model. It's a piece of garbage. I loved the retro oval window and all and the size was perfect for our space. Then, the paint started chipping off the inside front, the timer started working intermittently, and the oven would just quit in the middle of the cooking cycle! Today, it finally just up and died. I unplugged and replugged it. No go. Finished cooking on stove top. My suggestion? Do like we're going to do and go buy another microwave...not another GE!

Good luck! Peacenikkie@charter.net

Shuts off after cooking a few minutes


Since it's under warranty, I would check with MayTag or a local Maytag-authorized servider: http://maytag.com/support/service_parts.jsp

Microwave makes loud buzzing sound when on and no heat


Have you tried putting a cup of water in it and cooking on a low power level? If it buzzes only when it is on the cook cycle, that would narrow it down. More detals might help us help you, including the model number.
