Hi, I have a new Maytag MMV1153BAW P/N 8102P27160
When using with vent (ducted to attic) on high, it will shut down after a few minutes. It will also shut down or not work if the range below is cooking. It is in our vacation home and hasn't been used over 10 times. It eventually resets itself after hours and hours, but will shut down even when heating up coffee in a coffee cup. Thanks

Re: Over the range MV Oven shuts down from heat
It is triggering the overtemp switch. try to check the vent outlet, it could be clogged with dirt. or the cooling fan of the magnetron is no longer running. could be stuck up because of not being used for a long time.

Attached to the magnetron is a thermostat, which opens to interrupt power if the heat gets too high. Then when it cools, the thermostat closes, restoring power.
An overheating magnetron
can be due to:
oven without cover(s) in place
magnetron installed in oven
an old or
otherwise failing magnetron
power line voltage (should be 110-125VAC)
foods low in
moisture (popcorn & bacon, e.g. - add 1/2 cup of water in rear
inoperable cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan
foam weatherstripping seals in air ducts or on outside cover
vents (dust, animal nest debris, insufficient free air space behind
& around oven, etc.)
greasy charcoal filter or grease filter
in hood vent exhaust
should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit
control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is
very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating

over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

No... you are not in a microwave induced time warp...
Your microwave oven needs a "reboot". The same thing happened to me.
Unplug your microwave oven, wait about a minute (more or less), plug it back in. Try setting/running your kitchen timer, boil water, etc. Your timer software on the microwave should be reset.
