It is tthe magnetron having the spark sometimes due to an insulation leak in the fitting .
Please check the spot where the magnetronis fitted to the cabin. Inside of the cabin there is a insulation cover and if some food particles are stuck on it due to non usage of food cover, then it is possible that the conduction of the food on this is smoking or causing an insulation break. So clean and remount the magnetron if not change the unit if the estimation is reasonable.
Credit if the advice helps

I have a Whirlpool Microwave! It kept saying open/close door. Than everything went out! Nothing works! Is there a fuse or reset button?


Please post the model number of the microwave for more detailed assistance. Sounds like a fuse in the microwave shorted out. Most likely caused by a bad door switch. Recommend replacing all door switches that are there and then replace fuse.

While changing light bulb, the bulb broke and sparked . This caused the breaker to trip. Since this acurred the Microwave has not worked. no power. I resset the breaker and tested the outlet it has power....


There is a fuse located inside the unit, that has probably blown. This is usually replaced by an appliance repairman - but if you are handy and can remember to kill the power BEFORE attempting replacement, you can save a few bucks.

Whirlpool has made a repair guide or "job aid" for their field service personnel, and it is quite detailed, and includes helpful pictures. Rather than paraphrase it - you can follow the link below and download it yourself. Page 4-6 details fuse access. The link:

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/eb51f29dbe5773c18525726e00793aa7/$FILE/Whpl%20BaseLineMHC.pdf

Copy and paste the text above in your browser's address box to download the job aid. it is _very_ important that you replace the fuse with the exact replacement. Deviating from the type, style, etc. can lead to fire or nuisance fuse failure.

Please rate this reply if it was helpful to you. Good luck!

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs


My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.

Our whirlpool microwave does not heat. Everything


Hi!if your microwave does not heat, it only means that the magnetron is not working, try to look for busted fuse. or check the capacitor for leak, the hi voltage diode sometimes malfunction, and if all of the above mentioned are all ok maybe your magnetron is defective.

My Whirlpool MH3184xps is shooting a spark when in use with the rack. When the rack is removed the oven works fine. I am guessing that some of the coating on the rack has cracked and peeled and is exposing some aluminum. Has anyone else had this problem?

Microwave


be very careful cos microwaves can kill - there is very high voltage present even when disconnected from mains. unplug from mains & leave for 1 hour. remove cabinet. there is a fuse which controls everything usually located near the transformer or where the mains cable enters. check fuse and replace. it needs to be the correct fuse for the appliance
