Question about Roper Microwave Ovens
I'm guessing that model number is actually MHE14XMD0?
If the turntable's not working and it's not heating, I would suspect the secondary interlock (upper door switch) is bad or its mount is loose, broken, or misaligned.
Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
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.
If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.
You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here. I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.
If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.
If yours has 1/4" terminals instead of 3/16" terminals, mention that when you order.
The switchers are shown here, but the top one is most suspect. It will not be the middle switch.
Sometimes the rotating switch holders nI HAVE A ROPER MICROWAVE MODEL # MHE14XAD0 UNIT - be9b128.jpge modification:
