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 about 5 minutes.

How do you access the fuse in a Maytag Model#MMV5000BAB


The fuse is inside. You have to remove the outer cabinet to get to it but be aware that dangerous, possibly fatal, voltages lurk inside, even with power disconnected.

How to get full power from outlet???


If you are getting your microwave to turn on then you are just fine on your outlets. They should be putting out 120v. You just have an under powered Microwave.

My Audiovox mobil chef microwave went dead fuses in house are fine. Stumped ?


there are fuses in the machine itself that can blow
I suggest that you have it inspected by an accredited appliance shop as if the fuse is blown it points to something more serious.

There is no electricity getting to it. Just dead. Is there a fuse or something I could look for? Help


You can download the online parts List and service diagrams for your model at the following link:

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/


To view the service diagrams just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated. Then just enter the model number of your microwave oven.

You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents like the diagrams.
You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.
Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.

I will assume you have checked the house's main circuit panel for any tripped breakers and tested the electrical wall outlet for a good power supply. Reset the house circuit breaker at the panel if necessary.

Otherwise, hopefully the problem is just a blown main fuse inside the microwave. In order to access and check this you will have to disconnect the power cord and then remove the oven from the wall if it is an overhead model. Then remove the case in order to access the electrical parts inside.

Components inside the microwave like the main capacitor can remain EXTREMELY dangerous even after the power cord is disconnected. So if you are not familiar with basic electrical safety precautions when working with this type of equipment, then you should leave this kind of task for a trained appliance technician.

Here is a picture of a generic main fuse for a microwave:

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=4440371

Just replace the fuse with an exact match and reassemble. If you tested the old fuse and it was still good, then you may be dealing with a more complicated and expensive fix possibly involving the control panel circuit board. At that point you may want to consider seeking additional assistance or just getting a new oven.

Thank you very much and good luck.

14 years old. Hit the start button this AM and it


Yep, get a new one. Your oven's magnetron tube, the microwave source, has gone bad. They often go with a bang. While the tube could be replaced, the repair will likely cost more than a new oven. At 14, it's done you well but it's time to move on.

Kitchenaid Microwave Oven model Kcms1555rss stuck on same cooking time. There is a line with 3 other lines also on the screen


Hello :

It could be a bad door switch or loose door switch mount . There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly .

Warning : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

good luck .
