Question about Maytag MMV5000 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Maytag umc5200aas Microwave is totally dead.

When I got home there was no power on the unit. I went to reset the circuit and it wouldn't reset. I then unplugged the unit and tried to reset the circuit. It reset. I opened her up and tried to test the fuse by checking for ohms. It came back with 0 ohms so I assume it is good. What next? I'm not fully confident with tying to discharge the capacitor.

    I have had this same problem but I am witness to its failure. Sears repairman said he couldn't find a problem on the computer diagnostic but could clearly see it had tripped itself off. This used to happen only if I was cooking for long times (example 10 minutes) but now it happens in as little as 3 minutes. We don't even put the screws back in the face now so we can pull it out and click the reset. SO MUCH FOR THE MAYTAG REPAIRMAN COMMERCIAL!!

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

    Do you have any warranty left? Also looks for blown capacitors (especially the small ones). If blown, they will most likely have a popped top on the capacitors. When a capacitor fails they typically put out a lower voltage and don't work well under a load. If one has failed, voltage may have dropped below operating level for the panel to power up. See if you get any DC voltage around the board at random points.

Microwave went totally dead while operating; there is power to the outlet.

If the control panel lights up intermittently, then you either have a loose connection somewhere near the panel, or a failing component on the circuit board itself.

Locating reset button on my microwave

To my knowledge none have a reset button or circuit breaker. If the unit is total dead there will be (has to be) a fuse inside the unit.

It just has no power. Nothing happened, I just went to use it and it was dead.

The main fuse is blown, "ceramic type" usually caused by a defective door switch.

I replaced my magnetron, and it went bad also. Why would this happen?

Could it be "finger trouble"?
A magnetron will fail within seconds if no food/liquid is placed in the oven cavity as there is no where for the energy to be dissipated and it will "cook" itself.
Is the high voltage supply and diode pack OK?

No power at display!

You've probably destroyed your magnetron, and the magnetron thermostat.

This kind of abuse will not be covered under warranty.

It will likely run about $75 for a technician to visit the home, $75 to do the work, $75-90 for the magnetron, and about $15 for the thermostat.

This is not good. Get the unit serviced by a professional before you use it again.
