One of my glass top plates doesn't work, it goes red and then turns off. How can I fix it?


I have no idea what you're talking about. Glass top plates? In a microwave oven? All I know is the glass turntable tray. And if it's not turning around, you either have that feature turned off (a dedicated button on the control panel), or else the turntable motor is bad.

I have a Maytag Microwave/Hood MMV4203DS00. Twenty minutes after its last use as a microwave oven, the Vent Fan spontaneously went on and the Display Shows: VENT...FAN..--5E-- (or SE?). The microwave...


"SE" error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.
On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so the control panel frame assembly (which comes with a new keypad) would have to be ordered and replaced.

It's actually a pretty simple DIY repair.

The frame assembly is part number W10258190 and you can get it for $67.98 (subject to change) from the Pros here. You can also order the thermostat (part number WB27X10567 ) from them.

Their is a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad as per the photo below.

Some connectors on the relays have a lock:

I'd check to make sure you don't have a door switch that isn't functioning properly. Also, might be a control panel or control panel interface issue.

Where is the fuse in under-counter miccrowave?


remove the vent grill at the top, may have to slide to left after screws are removed. then you will see a screw holding the control panel, remove. then slide the panel up slightly and the panel should come off. behind the panel you fine a 20 amp 250 vac glass type fuse. remove and replace. if your MW works cool,,,,, if it does not you may need to call for service.

Hello, does the control panel light up? If it doesn't then probably the fuse has shorted. Now, if the front control panel does light up. There a number of thing going on. Door closer switch is working.
The mega-tron tube is shot or something is going on the micropressor. Now, if the mega-tron is shot. Buy a new micro wave oven and allways to recycle used appliances. GB...stewbison

Control panel seems to be responsive, internal


Make sure the glass platter is correctly seated on the plastic drive. Now gently press down on the platter and see if it resists turning. If the platter turned easily, the plastic drive is spinning on the motor shaft and needs replaced. If the platter resists movement, the motor under the floor needs to be replaced.

Micro turns on but doesnot heat also turn on by self


Hello bbmasonjim,
If your micro turns on ( meaning everything seems to be working from the control panel) and you aren't getting microwave energy to heat food..you may have any number of damaged or defective components : Magnetron Tube, Filament Power Supply or HV Capacitor.. None of which are something the untrained person should mess with. Even unplugged, there is High Voltage potential inside the electronics compartment. If it is less than a year old, it may still be under warranty.. otherwise.. the cost to repair would probably be higher than the cost to replace..

Regards,
Rick

Won't heat


Hello,

The Microwave's "Magnetron" is what heats things up. This is true for all Microwave's. The magnetron is normally on the left and sends excited electrons across the interior. Those electrons bounce around inside until their energy is spent.These excited electron 'waves' are slightly larger than the hole openings in the front door glass panel black grid. Usually, when a magnetron goes you would see and hear some popping and witness some arcing inside the interior. However, you may not have been nearby when this happened. Since you heard popping behind the control panel, you probably have electronic failure in the control panel and that failure may have been precipitated by the magnetron or not. In any case, it is very dangerous to disassemble a Microwave and access the magnetron unless you are trained and have been qualified to do this.

With the cost of Microwaves having stabilized and also being quite low compared to 20 years ago, I would take it to a warranty service provider in your area that also sells them, such as Home Depot for example. That way, if it is too costly to repair compared to a replacement cost you can shop for a new one and may even get a discount should you ask them to give you one.

Sorry for the apparent bad news but if you feel this is the answer you're looking for please rate this solution as fixed or helpful. It means a lot to those of us who work for you in the free area instead of for a fee.


You can phone or write this address below for questions regarding your warranty or warranty repairs. Othewise, you can shop online for a replacement at homedepot.com or sears.com
