It sounds like there may be a blown fuse. The back of the mw oven will have to be removed to check. Some ovens only have a thermal fuse and not a traditional glass fuse. If that is the case you should call a technician to repair it unless you know how to use a soldering iron.

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

(if it is NOT shorted or burned looking, it's probably fine)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
(continuity can be good even though mag is bad!)

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

My microwavedoesn't heat is there a fuse that may be blown


No! the fuse is fine, there are three likely causes, magnetron, "heats food" cracked high voltave diode, or a shorted high voltage capacitor.

Model mh2175xst-0 The control panel with touch pad is very loose at the bottom. It is attached firmly at the top but very loose at the bottom. Is there a clip or something to secure touch pad?


This can be a sticker that glues to the panel and it is possible that the touch pad glue had come off.
You need to refix this to the panel if this seems to come off.

My microwave turns on but the food doesn't cook


If the microwave is making a humming sound, the diode s bad and needs to be changed. If the microwave sounds normal, the magnetron is bad and needs to be replaced.

Our new microwave heats the containers but not the food. Container is too hot to touch. Food "looks" hot, usually boiling - but food isn't even warm.


Check on the material the containers are made of. If they are not microwave friendly then they will cause problems.
Some materials are designed to "Roast" the contents by absorbing the energy.
Check with a Pyrex glass container and water. The glass should stay fairly cool.
