Question about Maytag MMC5000 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Samsung Pro Gourmet works but doesn't work

I found your 2006 post about Microwaves that do everything they're suppose to (lights, timers, turntables, etc) but don't heat anything. Well, I got it bad I guess. I guess I'm not alone when I admit that we open the door without hitting stop all the time to check on stuff and we recently changed the over-range-bulbs without unplugging from AC. I'm not intimidated with electronics and don't mind doing a bit of trouble shooting myself. It's probably cheaper to replace a couple parts than to find and tote this thing to a good technician like yourself. You mentioned a couple links on your website but I couldn't find your website. Can I get some further direction from you so I can check out some of your referenced documents?

Sincerely, Bruce in Atlanta

Is there an easy fix for a microwave that does not heat?


There is a separate fuse for the magnetron. Usually inside the case. The magnetron is the part that makes microwaves. The door switch could also be the culprit.

Frigidaire microwave not working


Is the door closing properly? Do you hear it "click" when it closes. A lot of times the problem is the door switch. It is located inside the microwave. They are made of plastic and they break. If the switch is broken, the magnetron(microwaves) will not start.

Microwave timer works but will motor will not run/cook.


If everything works on the unit, but you do not receive any heat or possibly the turntable does not turn you have a faulty magnetron (controls heat) and a faulty motor (controls turntable). You would require service on the unit, if parts are available. Some microwaves are so small in cubic foot size, that manufacturer's do not have parts available for purchase/repairs.

Microwave lights up doesn't turn on


The part of the oven called the "magnetron" (this part is what creates/generates the microwave energy that heats the food or liquid) is burned out, the cost to repair is more this part is more than the cost to replace with the cost of Microwaves so depressed by the stagnant economy.

That would be a bad bottom door switch or its mount.

See the help file on door switches here.

Microwave model MV-1510M is not heating, also sounds louder. Everything else is working, fan, lights, turntable etc..


If everything is working normally, except for heating, the likely cause is the magnetron.  Microwaves can be dangerous to work on, as the site below points out.  If you have an ohmmeter, it is possible to check the magnetron, but be certain to follow the precautions outlined at the webpage:
