Question about Maytag MMV5000 Microwave Oven
I was cooking and it just stopped working. I have replaced the fuse and checked the wall outlet. I still have nothing working. Any ideas of what I can do next?
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.
