Question about Maytag Appliances Over-the-Range Microwave Oven

1 Answer

My Maytag MMV5207BA has this strange glitch or short. Sometimes when you close the door it starts running on it's own, except with no heat. The tray moves and everything. I then realized that if I slightly pull on the handle, it does it. What do I need to do to fix this?

Check if the door handle is got loose or if the door handle is got internally loose.If the door handle checked ok.Then check the door closing switch.If there is a short in the door switch/latch wirings then it must be causing the motor in the unit to get command to function automatically.So the tray rotates automatically.

Maytag over the Range Microvave MMV5186AAS does not heat.


You have a bad secondary interlock (top door switch) or its mount is bad.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

Microwave Oven Model MMV5207BA/BC


E13 is usually a bad door switch or door switch mount.

The first step is to unplug it from the power outlet for one minute, then plug it back in and try it again.

If it still fails to heat, I would check the door switches and door switch mounts.
