Re: no power

You mentioned taking the "buttons" off. That may not give you complete access to the units motherboard or power supply area. Unplug the unit and remove the outside cover. Look for a blown fuse on the motherboard or power supply. Replace it with the EXACT value of the original fuse. You can purchase a new fuse at Radio Shack or hardware store or auto parts store. Try powering up the unit again and see if it works now or whether the fuse blows again. If it blows again, the power supply may have been damaged.

No power - not the outlet or a fuse

If the internal fuse in the microwave is good, then it could be a bad wiring connection somewhere in the oven, or a thermal cutout has failed.

No lights - Acts Like It Has No Power At All

see the diagram and pictorial and proceed with common sense:
1) test the fuse for open or band contact with VOM,see the diagram attached how to do it
2)check the switch door hook or door release button,when they are broken they do not touch the switch, and will NOT start. test for open
see the diagram

No power to oven; checked power to outlet and I do have power; looked for reset button but did not find one

If it is completely dead, check the main fuse, which is likely a AGC ceramic type. If dead, you can buy from Electronix: and click microwave in the left column. Good luck with it.

I have Whirlpool Microwave oven Model MH6110XEB-0 that has completely loss power. The outlet it is plug itno is still good with power running thru the outlet. I do not have any manuals for the microwave,...

with any luck you have just poped the inline fuse,
if you remove the control board you should be able to see the tube fuse up by the fan motor
if not the whole thing will have to come down to reach it

Microwave oven

Check the wall AC outlet by using a meter or another electrical appliance such as a table lamp. If no power there replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker.

Does your microwave light up when you open the door?

If not, it could be a bad power cord, on/off switch AC cord or fuse.

Check these first.

If you cannot solve the problem, you'll probably need service.

Hope this helped.
