The fuse is located behind the grille in line with the power cord on the right side of the unit.

But if your unit is dead, it may also be a bad magnetron thermal fuse or oven thermostat.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

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

We have the entire service manual in electronic format as well. Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help or would like the manual.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

How do you access the fuse in a Maytag Model#MMV5000BAB


The fuse is inside. You have to remove the outer cabinet to get to it but be aware that dangerous, possibly fatal, voltages lurk inside, even with power disconnected.

I have a Maytag MMV5207BAS. When pulling door open it would start itself. Had a tech come out and try to fix door latch and made it worse. Now it starts upon closing and starts on and off by itself


Is there no way this product can't be returned, there should be warranty on the item if new, regardless if it was manufactured in 2007 he has to honour the warranty. The problem you are describing is caused by one or two defective door switches, that must be replaced in order to get it working, and you need a professional that can do the job right.

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.

Our Maytag microwave died. The outlet has power.


you have to remove the cover, un-plug the power cord=
un-screw the screws located behind the unit and on the sides if any also under side if any, remove cover and you will locate the fuses and other components behind the key pad, also check slow blow or thermal fuse usually located on top of oven. NB: HIGH VOLTAGE COMPONENTS PROCEED WITH CAUTION!!!!!!!

My maytag microwave lost power


There is always a fuse inside a microwave.Sometime this has only blown due to a surge,and upon replacing, the microwave will continue working.If it is something worse the fuse will continue to blow.In this case it could very well be the transformer,but there are other possible causes as well.(for example the control board or a short.)

Fans runs when door closed, light always off


The first thing to replace is your technician. *grin*

You have a shorted main relay (lamp relay) on the control circuit board and a burned out light bulb.

You do not need a new board.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

Page 24 of your owner's manual shows you how to replace the light bulb. Be sure to unplug it first.

If you don't have your manual, you can download it here.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Maytag Microwave dead


Check the internal fuse. Unplug it, unscrew and take off the cover, the fuse should be easily found in the back by the power cord. It looks like a regular fuse but is white instead of clear glass because microwave fuses are special. You'll have to measure it with a meter as a result and be sure to replace it with the same kind. (try finding them at radio shack) Hopefully there isn't something more serious also.
Hope ya fix it!
