Question about Whirlpool MH1150XMQ Microwave Oven

Whirlpool MH1150XMQ Hi there. One of the prongs that holds the door shut broke off. Is there any way to just replace the latch or the full door?

THE DOOR COMES APART BUT MOST OF THE TIMES YOU WILL END UP BREAKING SOMETHING BECAUSE IT IS HELD TOGETHER WITH PLASTIC TABS THAT LOCK BEHIND THE MAIN FRAME OF THE DOOR. TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE TABS, FIRST USE A THIN BLADE TO REMOVE THE CHOKE.( NARROW ROUND PLASTIC PIECE THAT SURROUNDS THE INNER DOOR WINDOW). IF THE DOOR IS SUCCESSFULLY TAKEN APART, YOU CAN GET JUST THE
DOOR HOOK AND REPLACE IT. ALSO CHECK THE CONDITION OF THE SPRING. REPLACE IT IF IT IS WARPED OR THE END IS BROKEN OFF.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

I don't suggest your remove the door itself, because misalignment can allow leakage.

It looks like the part is called the door latch.

I have a mh1150xm microwave and changed the cooktop lightbulb. Still no light. A tech came and said that need to change whole control board. Is this true. Everything is working fine exept the light


I take it you did replace with a bulb designed to withstand heat.check the filament of bulb first these sometimes get damaged in transit.if the microwave is coming on then it won't be the fuse.if the bulb looks okay(you can check using another) finally inspect the door latch and the bulb housing and wiring to it.Sometimes door latch hole can get debris into the mechanism.cost of panel via engineer can cost quite abit..is it still in warranty? Price compare the estimation against buying new replacement.

Door will not stay shut


If you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking out of the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off inside.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

Why does the light / safety switch stay on when the door latches shut ?


Most likely there is a part missing from the door latch mechanism that you need. This probably broke off when the handle failed. It would be a tab or wedge shaped piece of plastic that strikes the door switch and pushes the switch closed when the door is completely shut. You will need to find that piece and glue it back on or get a new handle assembly from Samsung.

The locker (latch) on my microwave broke. We just got the replacement part in the mail. Sears says we should be able to replace it ourselves. I see no screws to get inside the door. Does the plastic flange...


If there are no screws to hold the inside door cover in place then they are probably using snap or lock in tabs around the edges to hold it
in place. You will have to disassemble the door to replace the door latch. ----------

How do I remove/replace the plastic seal on the inside door of a MH1150XMQ-1?


The clear plastic cover is glued on. It can be removed with a heat gun to soften the glue. Then clean with Goof Off or WD40 and alcohol before installing the new one.

I just installed a new MH1150XMB and the door is cloudy lookinh. There is a plastic film over the inside of the door, does this need to be removed?


Normally, no. That protects the metal mesh which blocks microwave energy from getting out the door.

Check your owner's manual.

If you do need to replace that clear cover, or any other door parts, etc., you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Whirlpool MH1150XMQ 1000 Watts Microwave--NO HEAT


About 95% of the time it is the magnatron. If the microwave is under 5 years old that part is often covered under warranty. I would check your manual. If not the p/n is 8206335 and it's about $80 and fairly easy to install. I just looked and the magnatron is covered.

Labor to replace it would be about $125

Door latch and Screen


This is because of the broken latch. There are switches inside the oven that are operated by the door latches to make sure you're not trying to use the oven with the door open. With the new door, your oven should be back to normal.
