Usually either the rectifier or the capacitor fails which causes the main fuse to blow.

The rectifier is item F1 and the capacitor is item F2 of this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5162082

After grounding across the capacitor terminals at least 3 times
you check the rectifier by disconnecting one lead and use a meter to read across the rectifier. It will read continuity in one direction and open in the other direction. The capacitor should make a meter indication jump each time you reverse the leads. No jump of the meter after reversing the leads or a ground from cap terminals to the case = bad cap. There is also a thermal cut out that can cause the problem.
This unit uses a switch / fuse kit item F9 of link for replacement parts. Check the fuse also.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Tip

Determining the Age of Your Maytag Appliance


This advice applies to all appliances manufactured by Maytag. Determining the manufactured date of most appliances is accomplished by looking at the SERIAL NUMBER. On Maytag appliances this is determined by the following method:

The LAST two letters in the serial number identifies the date code.

Example: 123456FY

The 1st Letter is the YEAR.

A – 1978/2002
B – 1966/1990
C – 1979/2003
D – 1967/1991
E – 1980/2004
F – 1968/1992
G – 1981/2005
H – 1969/1993
J – 1982/2006
K – 1970/1994
L – 1983/2007
M – 1971/1995
N – 1984/2008
P – 1972/1996
Q – 1985/2009
R – 1973/1997
S – 1986/2010
T – 1974/1998
U – 1987/2011
V – 1975/1999
X – 1988/2012
Y – 1976/2000
Z – 1977/2001

The 2nd Letter is the MONTH

A – JAN
B – JAN
C – FEB
D – FEB
E – MAR
F – MAR
G – APR
H – APR
J – MAY
K – MAY
L – JUN
M – JUN
N – JUL
P – AUG
Q – JUL
R – SEP
S – AUG
T – OCT
U – SEP
V – NOV
W – OCT
X – DEC
Y – NOV
Z – DEC

NOTE: Some later model Maytag appliances are manufactured by Whirlpool. The serial numbers may be in a different format. Check the MODEL number for any of the following prefixes:

106, 110, 198, 562, 664, 665.

These prefixes indicate the manufacturer as Whirlpool.

Hi i bought a Tricity Bendix TMC209 microwave combination oven yesterday but have no user manual. any ideas where to get one. please.


Tri City Bendix is now part of Electrolux. They do not have manuals on line for this product as yet but you should be able to request one using this link:
http://www.electrolux.co.uk/Support/Manuals/?modeld=TMC209

It does seem odd that this Combi Microwave unit has been in the market since Nov 2009 and there still are not any downloadable manuals on-line.

We bought MMV1153BAS in Nov 2005 and immediately we had to have a service tech come out due to control panel would count down really fast and there was no heat. Now January 2011 the same thing is...


It sounds like the unit may be in demo mode. This is a mode entered usually after a power interruption, and the unit will act like it's on display in a store. Check in the unit's manual to see if there's a way to exit demo mode, but some of the old standards may be cutting its power off again for a few seconds, or holding down something like a stop or clear button for a few seconds.

Every m/wave has an internal fuse but you have to remove the cover to find it.it is larger than an ordinary fuse and is normally white in colour.

I just bought this microwave but it has no instructions and i have no idea how to use it!


If you just bought it new and it came with no instructions, you should first contact the store you got it from for a manual.

Otherwise, manufacturers certainly do not want to expose themselves to serious liability by letting their ovens be sold without instructions!

If contacting the store is no help, please post back here with your brand and model and we can probably point you to contact information or an online manual.
