My Whirlpool microwave MT6120XEB-0 keeps blowing the fuse. Inststalled new fuse and display and timer works. Cooking blows new fuse. It turns on, makes grinding sound and blows a new fuse within a second...


You almost certainly have a shorted high voltage capacitor.

See the safety warnings and help information here.

Chances are you will have to remove the oven from the wall to replace it.

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

Tip

Error Code "d" - Microwave does not heat


The microwave could be in "Demo Mode" - Check your owners manual.

In Whirlpool/Kenmore models this is indicated by a lower case "d" on the right side of the display panel.

Most/All function except the magnatron (heat) work in demo mode so you can can learn to use the oven without actually cooking food

To clear "demo mode" press the "kitchen timer" pad and hold for 5 seconds until the "d" clears from the display... you may hear 2 beeps.

Mirowave not heat


When you hit "Start" to microwave, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on?

Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here: http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/mwd_ad_aug_2008_background.mp3

And what is your full model number from the tag on / in the unit?

These answers will help me judge whether it's in the high voltage section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section (door switch or control board relay or connection).

Please post a new help request with your brand and full model number from the tag and the answers to these questions so we can help you properly.

I have a GE spacemaker XL1800. the model number is JVM 1842 BD. The turn table has stopped turning. There is a turn table control and that is turned on. how do I go about repairing it? also, wher


The full model number from the tag on the unit would be JVM1842BD001 or JVM1842BD002 without the spaces.

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

Whirlpool over the range microwave model #gh4155xpt-0 serial # trr4413897 Microwave make loud noise and will not heat.


A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
(if it is NOT shorted or burned looking, it's probably fine)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
(continuity can be good even though mag is bad!)

Grinding noise in microwave


You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

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

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 grille or control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

In most cases, there are just gears inside, with no ball bearings.

One of the pins that hold a gear may have gotten bent or worn, or the gears may just be worn on one side of the teeth, making it
loud in one direction.

We have the full service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.

4175sp microwave has no power to turntable


I assume this is Whirlpool model GH4175sp?

This answer also assumes that yours does not allow for keypad control of the turntable.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven. You may have to cut the cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

Microwave, model # jes738wj02


It's normal for it to rotate in either direction. It has to do with the position of the motor and the instantaneous line polarity at the time the power is engaged.

But the grinding noise may indicate a problem...

You can do a quick check. You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPSWi_z7M58

If yours sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor.

To replace it, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.
