Question about Whirlpool MH3184XP Microwave Oven
Posted by Anonymous on
F7 error code could be an inverter board failure. Anything else that
prevents microwave energy may also cause an F7 error, and must be
checked. The technician should perform the following procedure to test
for an F7 error code:
1. Check the magnetron.
2. Check the magnetron TCO (it should be closed).
3. Check the 3 interlock switches.
4. Check the harness wiring.
5. Check the electronic controls.
6. Check the inverter board.
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.
