Question about Whirlpool Microwave Ovens

Open Question

Whirlpool Model MH7110XBB:2, Serial FGD4829185, Manuf. 1994 woked fine until it began giving the message " install probe" whenever I turn it on. The control panel is unresponsive to all attempts to actuate the Cancel or any other control panes buttons. It is totally unusable at the moment. This is Kelsall on behalf of our neighbor Norma Eldridge.

Chances are the keypad (membrane switch) is shorting, or the control panel as an assembly may need repair.

If you or someone you know decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting. It shows you how to test the keypad.

Also, we repair these for $39.95 (in most cases) for customers nationwide via mail. If yours needs a keypad, we could also give you the estimated total repair cost if you contact us with your exact model number.

SOURCE: MH1150XMT-0 (whirlpool) partially dead control panel

In order, I would suspect:

- it needs a reset
- door switch or door switch mount trouble
- your keypad is failing

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it so I can give you some advice on the other two probable causes.

SOURCE: Microwave starts after plug-in cannot be stopped by control panel

This seems like a problem with with the door latch circuitry HW. If the unit is still in warranty, call GE customer care. If not, your neighbor will need to buy a new oven. Service on microwave ovens is not cost effective because the replacements are so reasonable and have so many new features.

I have a lot of experience with these units. If the door latch circuitry is in question you may be exposed to dangerous microwave energy. Hope this helps...

SOURCE: Kenmore microwave - unresponsive keypad

Repaired the unresponsive keypad on my older Kenmore (model 721.68100): Unplug. Remove integral cover for top and sides which is held in place by 5 metal screws. The cover then slides toward the rear. Unplug two connectors to back of keypad and clean them (I used contact spray cleaner). Some of the components retain a charge even when unplugged.

I hit the start button on my Whirlpool microwave oven model no. MH7110XBB-5 but got nothing but a click. Any thoughts?


The control board that is located behind the keypad is the problem, I have seen the board develop bad solder connections around the relays. If you are handy with a soldering iron you can attempt a repair, remove top "2 to 6 screws" and remove keypad with control board attached "clipped or screwed in" remember to unplug microwave before you work on it.

Microwave does not heat if time is less than 1 min 30 seconds


Generally speaking, charcoal filters should be changed and grease filters should be cleaned about every six months, or whenever you notice they are getting dirty & clogged. Yours will likely have one or the other - probably not both - depending on whether it's vented or it recirculates.

A clogged filter will cause the supply of cooling air flow to be lessened, allowing the magnetron to overheat. It only takes one severe overheating to damage or destroy a magnetron.

One common way for a magnetron to fail is that its heating power is less and less, then it just stops heating.

Magnetron's will usually have a warranty of 5-9 years, but you'd still have to pay the installation labor.

You can save a $75-90 home visit by removing the oven form the wall and taking it to a local Whirlpool-authorized warranty servicer.

The date of manufacture will be on the model tag in the unit, and the warranty terms will be in the owner's manual. Many manufacturers will use the serial number and date of manufacture to validate the warranty in lieu of a sales receipt.

You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Try visiting the manuf. Web Site. IF it is a major manufacturer, they normally will supply parts for their products. You didn't supply the make of your Microwave, so I am afraid I could not look into it any further for you. Good Luck!
