Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool double oven. Model #rbd245pds12. The control panel went out and I ordered a new one. The only problem is that the new one doesn't have a plug in for the p27 spot. When you turn on the oven it says the door is open when it is closed and closed when it is open. Have they changed up this control panel because I notice some extras on it that isn't on the original. please help

Return the new part; take the old part with you to verify the part #s.
When a part is upgraded you always receive a small paper in the box or, bag explaining what is different and, how to modify the part to make it work in other models. If the p27 switch socket is missing on the board you have the wrong part; probably the non self-clean module instead of the self-clean one.

Unless there is moisture or grease on the control circuit board, it's likely failing membrane keypad.

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

It's important that high-current devices like microwaves be on their own dedicated breaker.

I would suspect the 20A fuse and then the oven cavity thermostats, in that order.

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

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

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Accessing some components (such as the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

I could have been more specific with a model number, but if this general answer doesn't do the trick, feel free to contact me with your full model and specific symptoms here.

It's usually a bad door switch or door switch mount. My helpful text file on door switches is here.

If it's one of those overdesigned Whirlpools, it can be one of many components. See the example photo at the bottom of this reply.

"F6" on a Whirlpool microwave means you have a shorted cook relay on the control circuit board.

For model MH7140XFQ0 the control circuit board would be part number 4393919, which you can order from the Pros here for $132.23.

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

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) take out the old board, then move the new circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

Otherwise, we regularly repair these boards with our $39.95 nationwide service. Details are here.

Microwave stopped working for no reason


A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

It may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or on the floor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

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

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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

If you don't find your tech sheet, you can download it here.

If the cavity thermostat needs to be checked or replaced you'll need to pull the oven from the wall.

Sounds like the mounting tabs have broken on the plastic control panel frame. You'll probably have to order both the control panel frame and the membrane keypad since they are attached. You can't peel your keypad off the frame and put it on the new frame. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Search for model number as MT9100SFB0 Another option if you prefer not to replace the control panel frame is to glue it in place, probably from the inside, but you need to be sure the mating surfaces are squeaky clean and dry.
