Question about Maytag Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a over the range microwave oven. Maytag model mmv1153bab. the keypad clock will intermittently lose the time and have to be reset. In using the 30 sec keypad, the unit will fire up for approx 5 seconds and shut down. it doent do it all the time but when the units does work for the full 30 seconds, the display screen will flash some of the keypads other functions. I thought the shutting down problem might be with the doors switch, but in pressing in on the closed door it still will occasionally shut down.

    I also tried the hard reset by leaving it unplugged for about an hour. I'm still seeing the flash of functions just before it shuts down, so this makes sense. so how do I remove the panel?

    It makes sense. I tried the hard reset by leaving it unplugged for an hour, but I can still the other functions flash on the display just prior to it shutting down.

    before you buy this part consider the age of the oven, is it worth the cost to repair? If it is more than 5 years old i would really consider a new Microwave, they are very cheap these days, the exception is the built in ones

You're going to have to replace the keypad module and possible the control module (do the keypad first). You can try contacting these folks: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/search.aspx?model=jem31sa%20001%20ge%20spacemaker%20microwave
And see if they have a keypad for your unit. Depending on the age of your microwave, you may be best off replacing the whole microwave.

F3 on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad. It can be intermittent.

On some models, the keypad can be replaced as a separate part.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

But on some GE models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

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

You can 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 from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

Maytag microwave just died.


Take it back to the store and make them do something about them. If they dont then file a complaint with the BBB no reason for you to have to deal with this when it is there problem. It sounds like there is a venting issue and more going on

Timer descends very quickly


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If you still have trouble, since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

MMV5000BAW maytag over-the-range microwave


Found this in the GE section instead of Maytag, but we're happy to answer it anyway.

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

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

If not, you may have a shorted keypad or bad control panel, either of which we can repair economically.

Please write back with more details if you need further help.
