You've probably destroyed your magnetron, and the magnetron thermostat.

This kind of abuse will not be covered under warranty.

It will likely run about $75 for a technician to visit the home, $75 to do the work, $75-90 for the magnetron, and about $15 for the thermostat.

Sometimes oven does not work. when ya hit start it just clicks - the screen looks normal for about 2seconds & then shows the clock time.


Sounds like is what's happening:

Put in time, push start and unit runs for 2 seconds, relay clicks, unit goes off. Cook time on display goes off and clock time comes back.

That would be a bad upper interlock switch and charred connector. If so, see:

I have Emerson Microwave #mw8999sv which has the Express Cook option- cooking 1 - 6 minutes. How do I cook for 1 minute 30 seconds, etc.? Thank you.


The owner's manual is here. On page 10 we find:

COOKING IN ONE STAGE
1. Press the POWER button; the Microwave and High
Cook indicators will light and “PL 10” will light in the
display.
2. Press the POWER button different times to set the
desired power; the display will show the percentage
you chose. If selecting power level 70%-10%, the
Low Cook indicator will light instead of the High
Cook indicator.
3. Press number keys to set the desired cooking time.
OPERATION(CONTINUED)
4. Press the START/+30SEC. button to start cooking;
the Microwave and one of the Cook indicators will
blink and the display will countdown the remaining
cooking time in minutes and seconds. It will beep
five times when cooking is completed.

Screen/ keypad seem to be locked


Sounds like the child lock has come on.

This addressed in your owner's manual. but if for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, you can download Maytag owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Just enter your full model number.

If it's not the child lock,
I would suggest 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.

Ge profile microwave doesn't seem to be heating food real hot. during the last bag of popcorn we tried to pop it never even started popping it, and the microwave stopped and said on the screen...


On GE models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
  • Using the sensor feature, the door was opened before steam could be detected. Do not open the door until stream is sensed and time is shown counting down on the display.
  • Steam was not detected in the maximum amount of time. Use Time Cook to heat for more time.
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.

Otherwise, your sensor may have failed.

It should have a one year warranty, right? If so, Westinghouse should take care of it for you.

Numbers and light, but no power


It sounds like you have a bad control unit (the circuit board). We repair controllers nationwide for $39.995 in most cases, but if a part is needed which we cannot get, then it will need a new board. That can be ordered from http://www.vancebaldwin.com If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
