Question about Whirlpool Accuwave Microwave Oven
According to the technical sheet found hidden inside the unit behind the controller and online here:
F7 Power to magnetron interrupted
1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
2. After 40 seconds, check to see whether this solves the problem. (Possible reason: Over temperature protection for the magnetron opened.)
3. Check resistance of the magnetron thermostat. It should be close to 0 ohms.
4. Check the magnetron.
5. Check wiring to the 1100W inverter and control system.
6. Check operation of all interlock switches.
7. If switches operate correctly:
- Replace 1100W inverter.
- If problem persists, replace power supply board.
8. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.

F7 error code could be an inverter board failure. Anything else that
prevents microwave energy may also cause an F7 error, and must be
checked. The technician should perform the following procedure to test
for an F7 error code:
1. Check the magnetron.
2. Check the magnetron TCO (it should be closed).
3. Check the 3 interlock switches.
4. Check the harness wiring.
5. Check the electronic controls.
6. Check the inverter board.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.
