Question about Whirlpool Microwave Ovens
It depends on the model number, but it may be as simple as a door switch or the magnetron's thermostat / thermal cutout.
See our file on door switches here.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden 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.
If you don't find your mini-manual, or if you want to look at it before removing the controller, you can download it here (just enter your model number).
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
