Question about Whirlpool MH1150XMQ Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave MH1160XSD1 Lift blower and turn. The instructions do not deal with how to release the blower to lift it and turn it. There are tabs toward the back side inhibiting the movement to lift it. Do I brake them off or bend them down?

I didn't find installation instructions for this model, but on previous models there were 2 screws holding it in, as in this picture.

Need to replace door handle

1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power. 2. Open the microwave oven door. 3. Pry the choke cover away from the top door pin, and remove the top pin from the pivot bracket. Lift the door off the bottom bracket, and remove it. 4. Place the oven door front side down on a padded surface. 5. Remove the choke screws from the door frame. 6. Starting at the top right corner, pry the choke cover out with a putty knife, and unsnap it from the choke. Only remove the top, bottom and right sides of the choke cover at this time. You will remove the handle end of the choke cover later. 7. Starting at the top edge of the door near the center and working clockwise, use a putty knife, and pry the latching tabs of the choke out of the door frame slots. Lift the choke as you release the tabs so they do not snap back into the slots. NOTE: When you reach the handle side of door, pull both the choke and the choke cover away from the door frame, and then separate the two components. 8. To remove the door switch actuators from the choke, remove the screw from each actuator. REASSEMBLY NOTE: When you reinstall the door on the oven, insert the top pin into the pivot bracket and press down on the pin until it snaps into place

I bought new Kitchen Aid microwave with hood combination and followed the instructions to install it. Everything was OK until I came to the Wall Venting Installation, step 4. Lift blower motor out of...

On this model, item #1 is the only part you will need to invert. Lift out and rotate to allow venting to be possible to the wall. In other words, the open part needs to face the back of the microwave. Also if you removed the blower, you will need to re-install it back and correctly. You could have venting issues if not back in the proper location.

I'm removing a Maytag microwave over stove model #mmv4205aab. Would appreciate guidance. The only attachments I can see are two bolts which connect the unit to the cabinet above. I cannot see what...

Typically there is a metal mounting plate screwed to the wall and when you take the screws out of the cabinet above it it will tilt forward toward you and then you have to lift it off of some metal tabs that are on the bottom of that mounting plate. Lift up and pull away from the wall and let the cord pull out of the hole in the bottom of the cabinet. Good luck. I usually do that by myself and hook one arm under it and lift it up, but probably better with two people.

How do i replace the inside light in the microwave?

If you see no panel on the inside of the unit, you will have to remove the housing.
If it isn't high-mounted, this isn't difficult; there are 3-5 screws around the edge of the back panel that keep the metallic housing in place. Once these are removed, lift the rear flange of the housing and tilt it forward, then pull it back toward you to release the front lip.
As a precaution; unplug the oven overnight since there are components that can keep a nasty electrical charge for hours, maybe not life-threatening but highly unpleasant.

Interior bulb went out , and it's an over the counter mount. How do I get to the bulb ?

Remove the top grill cover by gently pulling out on it and down on the right side. Remove the filter that is in the middle. Look at the metal cover, push back on the plastic tab and pull the metal clip toward you. You can now gently lift the cover off expsing the lightbulb and replace it. Simple and easy, no tools needed.

I have got power to my Mv-1615 micro, but one half of control panel numbers do not work. That was a couple of minutes ago, now the start button is out.

The controller is failing and should be replaced. The part number is; 4781W1M427Z and can be found by clicking here.

The repair here is pretty straight forward, but I gotta tell you... I generally don't work on Goldstars so I'm working from memory with these instructions, OK?

Grab a step stool, open the cabinet above the microwave (MW) and UNPLUG IT!!! Now look at the top of the MW just above the grill, you should see a couple of phillips screws, remove them then remove the grill itself. Now you'll see the single screw that fastens the control panel, remove it. Now (with the door open) lift the control and pull towards you. This will expose the controller.

There will be a LOT of wires connected to it. What I do is take a sheet of paper and make a "map" of what wires go where BEFORE removing any of them. You may notice that some of the individual wire terminals are difficult to remove, these have a "locking tab" on them. DON'T FORCE IT OFF! Look closely and you'll see the tab, all you have to do is use a small flat screwdriver or the tip of a steak knife or anything small and sturdy... just lift the locking tab slightly and pull the wire at the same time, it'll come right off.

Now that you have the controller removed from the MW and laying on a flat surface all that's left is to do is swap the old controller for the new one and rebuild everything. There ya go! MW is fixed!

Hope this helped ya! If so, don't forget to rate!

Looking at the pamphlet, it sounds like you're doing everything right.

It sounds like something is a little bent or out of alignment making it stick.

Maybe you can take the tip of the screwdriver, and push against the motor assembly a bit to loosen it?

Stuck Microwave door

In most cases this is due to a broken door opening lever or loose or broken door latch / hook parts. They can only be accessed and examined if the cover is removed from the microwave. In many over the range models, you can access the door parts by removing the control panel assembly. Sometimes you may be able to get it open by pushing up gently on the bottom of the door while pushing the button, in case you need to empty it.
