Yes, there is a thermostat on the magnetron that detects when it overheats.

When it does, it will shut down power until it cools back down.

This protects the magnetron from the destruction posed by overheating, which can be caused by:

  • operating oven without cover(s) in place
  • wrong magnetron installed in oven
  • an old or otherwise failing magnetron
  • cracked magnetron magnet
  • improper power line voltage (should be 110-125VAC)
  • foods low in moisture (popcorn & bacon, e.g. - add 1/2 cup of water in rear oven)
  • failed or inoperable cooling fan or hood vent exhaust fan
  • deteriorating foam weatherstripping seals in air ducts or on outside cover
  • blocked air vents (dust, animal nest debris, insufficient free air space behind & around oven, etc.)
  • clogged or greasy charcoal filter or grease filter
  • blocked duct in hood vent exhaust
Check as many of these these things as you can and correct as necessary.

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.

How do I access fuse in maytag model mmv4205AA


If the oven is dead - no display, no beeps when you press a pad on the keypad, and no inside light when you open the door - then I would suggest that you very the outlet is okay under load.

A hair dryer or toaster are the best ways the average DIYer can test the outlet under load.

If that's good, then your microwave may be dead due to a blown fuse, magnetron thermostat, or oven cavity thermostat.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side 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 the fuse and magnetron thermostat are good, then you will have to take the oven down from the wall to get to and test the oven thermostat.

No microwave problem. I have a micro 21 by raytheon pan. Please tell me how much water, vegetables and time to cook them. I don't have a instruction book.


I found an instruction booklet. For most veggies (1/2 lb) steam for 10 minutes using 3/4 cup water. Add 5 minutes steaming time for frozen. 1 whole cauliflower is 15 minutes & 1 cup water

My KitchenAid microwave oven's model number is KCMS185JSS-4. Manufacture date is July 2005. It's been working fine until today, with an occasional glitch in the digital readout... sometimes the letters...


Either your high voltage rectifier or magnetron (or both) has failed.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)

Magic Chef Over the Range, MicroOven, model MCO153UBF


I tried the usual things, then checked the outlet in the cupboard where the unit is plugged in.....It was okay, but then I noticed a separate electrical cable going into the wall at the outlet. I went to the breaker box downstairs, found a breaker marked "Microwave Oven", flicked it off and on and away the microwave oven went....It is now okay. I guess the thermostat had turned everything off when it became too hot....
anyway all okay now....thx Janet

Started up microwave and she quit, no power at all, checked outlet and its okay


A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout / thermal fuse 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.

When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

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.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

Did you unplug it for several minutes and them plug it back in?

If that dosn't resolve your problem, it sounds to me like the microprocessor controller board has failed and will need to be replaced.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
