If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

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

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open. Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

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

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

New microwave stopped working after 15 seconds


Possibly the fuse / breaker is tripped, usually all outlets in one room share same breaker. Check breakers (or fuses) or try outlet in differnt room. If the outlet has power, (plugin a lamp to check) and the microwave still does not work, take it back to store for replacement or refund.

Maytag microwave suddenly stopped working, overheated, nothing was cooking.


It is more than likely the magnetron is fried, to replace fuse! unplug microwave oven, remove top, "several screws" look to the right to the keypad control board, look down to a printed circuit board, clipped fuse should be near by, pop it out and replace with same current rating, assemble before testing, "lethal voltages present"

Where is the power fuse


You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Running the oven empty will overheat the magnetron. It may just be a failed magnetron thermal cutout (also called a thermostat or TCO) or the magnetron itself may be destroyed.

Microwave does not work nothing on the control pad work the pad just says se


Hello

Check the power supply. Make sure the microwave is firmly plugged into a working electrical outlet and that your wall outlet is active if your home uses outlets controlled by a wall switch. Check your home's fuses or circuit breakers to ensure they have not been tripped. Without power the microwave will not respond to any input.


Make sure the parental lock is inactive. Some ovens, like the one shown in the image above, feature a keypad lock to prevent children playing with the controls. Most keypad locks can be cancelled by holding down a button or combination of buttons for a few seconds.


Make sure the door is firmly closed. Some microwave ovens will not allow any control panel input if the door is open.


Remove the microwave from the power, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in. This will reset the microwave oven if there is a temporary problem with the software.


Press the "Stop/Cancel" button several times to cancel the current operation and return the microwave to standby mode. Re-enter your cooking instructions using the keypad as usual.

Maytag microwave suddenly died after 20 seconds of use - lost all power. Outlet is good. Anyone else experienced this? My cup of tea looks sooo sad - like my wallet... Appreciate your time and...


Replacr the internal fuse you will find when you remove the cabinet. It will be near where the cord enters the cabinet. It is a special fuse ... get a replacement at most hardware of appliance parts stores.

Be careful, a Microwave can be a death trap. Check outlet to make sure it's live. Could be a failed low voltage transformer.
