Whirlpool microwavewave hood comination mh3184xp

Hello! I have a 1 1/2yr old whirlpool mh3184xp microwave hood that stoped working for no apparent reason. It was not in use at the time, other than the lo hood light being on which we leave on at night some times. I was in the kitchen at time it lost power. I herd a click or a small popping sound and then the light and all power to the microwave was out. I unplugged the microwave, check the breaker, check the outlet for 120 power, plugged in three diffrent appliances into same outlet an they all worked fine. plugged the microwave back in an still no power. I would greatly appreciate if you or someone who has resolved this problem can help me.

My Whirlpool MH3184xps is shooting a spark when in use with the rack. When the rack is removed the oven works fine. I am guessing that some of the coating on the rack has cracked and peeled and is exposing some aluminum. Has anyone else had this problem?

There are 3 fuses in that microwave. I had a similar issue. The one that I had to replace was the little ceramic fuse that is in line after the big fuse which is connected to the main line.
I couldn't find the ceramic fuse but I replaced it was a glass one about a year ago and it has been working since then. The fuse if located on the right front panel.

Whirlpool mircowave model MH3184XP the display reads F2



There is a problem with the control pad. The membrane, or surface, of the pad may be broken or damaged somewhere, resulting in the F2 error code. This is common for Whirlpool microwaves.


Press "Stop/Cancel" twice and select a new cook program. Press "Start" to begin.

If the error code persists, press "Stop/Cancel" again and unplug the microwave. Wait several minutes and plug it in. If the F2 code appears again, it requires repair.


Replacement membranes can be found online

but the internals of a microwave are dangerous, having high voltages even when unplugged. With the cost of parts and labour from a service tech, you may be best buying a new oven.

Suggest you pull the plug out, remove outer cover and place a cup of water into the micro. Set power to minimum then switch on and take note if the fan works or not. If not, switch off immediately and have it replaced(magnatron will burn out if left to run without fan.)

Microwave not heating items, also range vent not operating


the unit inside the microwave that heats called the "magnetron" has gone bad or the circuits that power the magnetron and other parts of the unit have failed. if its under warranty still, send it back to the manufacturer. if not you can call some repair shops and see how much it would be to service it, but its most likely going to be cheaper to purchace a new microwave since they are relatively cheap these days, they dont make them long lasting anymore, they are a "disposable" product these days

Whirlpool Microwave Hood Combination MH3184XPS-0 (October 2004), for no reason at all, this morning keeps beeping and running the power setting down from 10 to 1, and just keeps doing it in rapid sequence....


Ours just started doing this exact same thing this past Friday - 12/11/09. What's going on? The cook power just starts beeping all by itself and going from 10 down to 1 over and over again. It may stop momentarily, but then starts again within a minute or so - it's constant until we unplug it. We plug it back in and within a few minutes it starts doing it again. What gives?

Humming sound when off


I also have the same microwave model and with the same problem. It is not quite 2 years old. I have a service call scheduled but did e-mail customer service at Whirlpool to inform them of this. Sounds like it could be defective model and a fire hazard. You should also inform them of yours.

Whirlpool Microwave Model MH3184XP


This is most often caused by a bad magnetron "scrambling" the controller, a bad connection on the controller, or a controller failure. Try to use the "timer" function of the oven. Make it count down without cooking for about a minute. If it works, then it's more likely to be a bad magnetron. If it still fails, it's probably a problem on the controller. We repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 in most cases. For more information see our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
