If it's new, it should still be under warranty, so I would contact Whirlpool at http://whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp

Hood light & exhaust fan not working


You have no power to the unit. Breaker is out or the hot wires into the hood has come apart. The wires coming into the unit usually terminated in a junction box next to the fan housing.
Teas it for power an/or reset breaker.

Problem with the Whirlpool GH5184XPQ 1100 Watts Microwave Oven: In turning the microwave on this morning, a faint electric sparking was heard. Upon shutting it off and opening the door an acrid burning...


The problem is that the magnetron is arcing when it is running and it has found a couple bare spots 'exposing the metal'. The microwave uses a special industrial white enamel paint to prevent arcing, it is very important that the oven be removed from service until the situation is rectified otherwise there is a danger of shorting out the magnetron.

I have a gh5184xpso 1100 watt microwave - i tried to turn on the night light and heard a pop and now the microwave will not turn on at all. i dont know how to get at the fuses - it is a over the range...


You have to take the casing off he microwave and you should be able to see the fuse in there. Your going to have to order the fuse so i would call a parts aplliance place and ask them what fuse that woul be and try that.

GE XL1800 Micro fan won't shut off after light burned out


The problem appears, at least in part, to the door latch circuitry which cannot be serviced by the owner. If the unit is still in warranty, call GE customer care. If not, replacing the unit is your best bet. I just bought a new GE 1100 watt oven with great features for less than $100 If the door dosen't latch correctly, you could be exposed to dangerous microwave energy.
