Parts are available at www.repairclinic.com.
It seems as thought the display/circuit board needs to be looked at.
If you are handy take it apart while unplugged and look inside for loose wires to the display or visual evidence.
Otherwise it is best to call the store where you purchase it and a technician can suggest what to do.
It will depend on the age of it whether it is better to replace it or repair it.
Let me know if you need further assistance

Your membrane keypad is probably the culprit, not the circuit board.

If you don't want to tackle it yourself, we regularly repair these for customers nationwide for $39.95 plus parts.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.


We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Clock will not set time


Most microwaves just need to have the clock button pressed 1 time. Then you enter the time. Next some want to to pick am or pm. Then press clock again to set. Sometime last step is the start button instead of clock.

Microwave felt very warm on top. after cooling


That's often a sign of impending failure of the magnetron or a failed or failing internal cooling fan.

One should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking, and it's even more critical any time there is a problem or potential problem.

With the model number, we can offer more specific advice or an estimate.

But since FixYa does not notify us of follow-ups, you will need to post a new help request.

Microwave not heating


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

How to reset the clock


On most microwaves you simply press (Clock) then push in the time with the number pad, then you press start button.
This is how most will set, some models will also have am/pm options.

If all else fails then get the model number of your microwave and make/Brand and go to the manufactures website, for instance if its whirlpool type in www.whirlpool.com and go to the section for manuals and it usually will ask you for your model number.

Good Luck!

Whirlpool MH2155XPS - numbers on the clock display


Normally it's bad connections or "ring cracks" on the connections on the circuit board.

This assumes the display glass is not broken, which would necessitate a new control board.

(Note that a dark spot on the display glass is normal)

And it assumes that the unit was not hit with a surge, or needs other repairs, which we do nationwide for $39.95 in most cases.

MH1150XMT-0 (whirlpool) partially dead control panel


In order, I would suspect:

- it needs a reset
- door switch or door switch mount trouble
- your keypad is failing

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it so I can give you some advice on the other two probable causes.
