SOURCE: oven makes operating noise when doo is closed without starting

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

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.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics. You can call them at 866-779-5835.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

SOURCE: Maytag Over the Oven Microwave Model MMV5100AA

"SE" means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

You did not give us the full model number. It will be one of these:

MMV5100AAB
MMV5100AAQ
MMV5100AAS
MMV5100AAW

On these models, you would need to order a control panel frame which comes with a new keypad already installed. It's a simple do it yourself fix.

You can look up and order that part from the Pros here, our favorite supplier. If it's not in stock immediately, they will have it to you in a few days.

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) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays have a lock:

How do I replace the inside light on my R-520 ks Sharp Microwave


I don't know the exact model but most MWs have a plastic panel that pops off easily. Some, however you must take the cover off the MW oven. Just a tad more difficult.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Touchpad and Control Panel If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective.

Touchpad If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.

User Control and Display Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

Main Control Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

My microwave maytag UMV1152BAS door will not latch and the light stays on and the microwave doesn not work


If you look at the hooks sticking out of the door you should see two "L" shapes. Those are attached to a spring and you should be able to move them up and down. I think either the spring is broken, or an end of one of the L's is missing. Those L's enter the machine by sliding up and over a ramp and then down to engage the door switches. If the switches are not engaged, well, that would duplicate your unit's symptoms. It is a replaceable part, and not very difficult. If you do need to order one of those parts, you will need a correct model number taken directly from the MW, plus the first two digits of the serial number.
Hope that helps you.

what you are to do to fix up the problem is that,put iff the the oven for some time and allow it to relax it self with out an operation, then put it on again then if it has time programming or reset button then click on an of this button for it to restart it self ,

Blue film partly removed


The blue film is supposed to be removed. It is used only to protect the appliance from scratches during shipping. Some consumers mistakenly leave this film on thinking it will make the appliance last longer. Eventually, over years of use, the film becomes difficult to remove and may remove the finish if you try to peel it off. It is not required for the safe use of the microwave oven.

Starts up then after 1 sec shuts down and ask for the time and date and to be reset


Poddar,
You've got a failed magnetron. After it engages it's leaks microwaves (radio frequencies) into the control area behind the touchpad and scrambles the IC board in there. It'll have to be replaced.

Here's the thing... MW ovens should NEVER be repaired by untrained people... lurking inside is a high voltage capacitor that stores up to 2,500 volts DC and is just waiting for someone to make the wrong move. When the wrong move is made, the cap discharges all 2,500 volts in a fraction of a second. At best it'll just knock you out... at worst you'll be a few days in the Hospital.

OK, all the gruesome stuff is said... now for the good news. GE places a 10 year warranty on their magnetrons! So here's what you do... Call around to some appliance repair companies and get quotes for installing an over-the-range MW magnetron (labor only 'cause you'll supply the magnetron) and go with the cheapest. Then you call GE customer support at 1-800-GE-CARES and provide them with the model and serial number for you machine (it's on a sticker inside the cavity). Then tell them that your MW was diagnosed with a failed magnetron and ask them to send one to you free of charge. They might give you some lip about "only an authorized GE repair guy blah, blah, blah", if they do that just tell them that you already have an installer for it (GE factory guy's aren't cheap, btw) and if "you won't ship it to me, let me speak to your superviser". They'll send it to ya, I've done it a thousand times.

After the magnetron arrives at your doorstep, call the repair company and get them to come out and install it. There ya go!

Tracy

p.s. Please heed my warning above.

Wiring diagram Problem - Maytag MMV5207A 1100 Watts Microwave Oven


This doesn't have the diagram hidden away somewhere inside? Check at the bottom edge of the control panel, transformer brack, or rear of the oven. Otherwise, you can find wiring diagrams of earlier models that may be close enough. Just enter your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
