What is the first thing to test on my micro that is acting up?


Microwaves are not very user friendly when it comes to servicing the. They generate very high voltages and are very dangerous to try to repair without the proper training.

Maytag microwave going crazy


< - Let ME know your full model number from the tag and I can give you complete detailed instructions on how you or a friend can fix it.

"SE" means you have a shorting membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

Try2910227 serial ywmh2205xvb-0 model arcing on the back corner were the rack sits.Is there a way to repair this seen is the unit was purchaced in June of 2011.


Yes, take the rack out and recycle it. I do not know why these micro-wave company put racks in the micro wave ovens. You get some insulation on the inside the micro flaking off next the rack.


The mega-tron tube is a very high energy transmitter. The energy will come out of the top inside the micro wave oven in a wave guide. Micro wave energy that generation by the tube is high frequency into Gega Hertz. You have a metal tray in side the micro wave acts like a big capacitor it stores energy in form of heat the next you know it look like Marconi is putting on a lighting display.



Leave the wire tie on a loft of bread and put in you micro wave oven to defrost. The next thing you might see is a load bread burning, instant toast. ----The use of micro wave were invented by the British before WWII. The mega tron tube generation very high frequency radio wave and these wave struck an object 100 miles away some of this beam energy would balance back to a receiver-----You have Radar.... I wish you and your family well being and be careful of micro wave ovens it can burn from inside out. GB you...stewbison

I have a WHirlpool Hood/Micro combo MH7140XFB-0. The micro portion has quit working -- lights, exhaust fan and clock still work. Turntable in micro turns but it doesn't heat and makes a funny noise.


Did your cooktop lights fail recently? If so, then the circuit board may have been damaged by a surge. We can probably repair that for you.

Otherwise, I would suspect a shorted high voltage diode or bad magnetron.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

mini_manual_behind_grille_small.jpgAt our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find your mini-manual, or if you want to look at it before removing the controller, you can download it here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (as MH7140XFB0) here.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)

Check door switches ... particularly if you are guilty of opening the door while the oven is in operation (door safety switches are probably cooked ... no pun intended)

This is an over the range microwave if I guess correctly. ( I couldn't find the model at KitcheAid)

The computer board is no longer sealed and has gotten wet from steam coming off of food being cooked below it. You need the computer control board replaced. My parent's GE over the range microwave had similar problems a couple times.

Microwave panasonic model nn 6358 about 10 years old


In most cases, you press Clock, enter the numbers for the time, then press Clock again, or possibly press Start.

Sometimes you have to press Clock, Clear numbers, then Clock or Start.

Or Clear, Clock, numbers, then Clock or Start.

In some older models, they had a very small mechanical clock button located at the top right corner of the controller near the display window. If yours has that, press it, then the numbers, then that button again or Start.

If this doesn't do it for you, could you post a clear photo of your control panel?
