Question about Whirlpool RMC275PD Microwave Oven
Light on Microwave went out and when I was figuring out how to change the bulb the microwave stopped working. I suspected door closure micro switches were bad so I changed the switch on the top left side of the door and the two switches on the top right side of door. Did not fix or change the problem. Still the same. All the lights and numbers come on normally. Is there another door switch I missed?? Is there some sort of reset? I changed the bulb and it still doesn't work either....
You need to replace the 20 amp line fuse (listed as a 15 amp on the tech sheet for the microwave/oven combo which can be found on top of the unit once you take off the control panel. The unit needs to be pulled out and quite a bit of the metal protective panels have to come off to get to the fuse, which is located on the right side of the microwave. We had the same problem and when i googled the problem, I read that it had to do with the door switches. We found out (by having a repairman out) that it has nothing to do with the door switches and once you replace the fuse, the light works and the microwave work. Hope this helps someone.
