Question about Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I have a whirlpool drop in oven.The model # is rb262pxaq1 everyone I have talked to tells me they can not get the part that I need that it has been discontinued. The part that i need is the electronic clock control # is 879478. I did have one company to send me a part assuring me that it would work, when I received the part it would not work. When I contacted the company I then had to go through their repair guru for a few days until they decided it would not work. I have been going through this ordeal for a few weeks can you help me or am I going to have to buy a new stove.

Is it possible that some spray cleaner accidentally got into the controls?

I always recommend that users spray the cleaner on a soft cloth (not on the keypad itself) then wipe the control panel off.

Also, I always recommend non-ammonia cleaners since ammonia can crack and damage plastic.

Otherwise, the spray can get into the controls and lock it up or make it act odd.

Another thing that can cause this is steam or grease / smoke getting in the controls. The best way to prevent this is to be sure your hood exhaust fan is on whenever you cook on the stove top.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

I've followed up to your by e-mail address to be sure I help you fully.

SOURCE: lg LMV1630st stainless steel microwave oven

I'm confused. If it's 6 weeks old, you can get it repaired free.

If it's 1-1/2 years old, the manufacturer will cover the part cost of the magnetron (assuming that's what's wrong) and you will have to pay for labor and any other needed parts.

Also, the subject line mentions a model LMV1630ST while your message body mentions model LMV1680BB.

For Goldstar / LG / customer service, help, call 1-800-243-0000 (M-F, 7am-8pm CT, Sat 8-5 CT) and choose the appropriate prompt from the menu or visit here.

Chances are your problem is a bad magnetron, but it may be another high voltage part.

SOURCE: Microwave Buttons Not Working

The cycling of your electricity probably didn't hurt it.

Chances are moisture or grease has gotten into the controls. That can ruin the keypad.

The way to prevent that is to be sure you have the microwave's hood vent exhaust fan running whenever you are cooking on the stove top.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace the keypad yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually 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 would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

SOURCE: Need to replace JMC7000 Microwave

Yours will likely have a bad high voltage diode, transformer or magnetron, all of which are covered under the extended parts warranty for five years from the date of purchase!

All you have to pay is labor, unless it's less than the two-year full warranty, then there's no charge.

That's a really great warranty!

It's on the back page of the owner's manual.

If you opt for replacement, Jenn-Air Customer Care can tell you which model would be a "drop-in" replacement.

Door drops down 1/8' when open. To close need to


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, there is no adjustment. More than likely the door pivot and/or hinges are worn. They can easily be replaced, however. The part numbers are as follows:

Door Pivot - 8184922
Upper Door Hinge - W10114255
Lower Door Hinge - W10114254

You can find these parts at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in the model number and locate items 6, 8, and 13 under the "Door Parts" heading.

If you have questions about this repair, or have a different model number, please post back and let me know so that I may be able to provide better assistance. I hope this helps you.

I replaced the bulbs in the underside of the microwave but the lights still won't turn on, can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong or something else I need to do? It's a whirlpool model # MH6130XEB-1


whirlpool model # MH6130XEB
You did not say if the machine works otherwise.

I gather you replace the bulbs in the ventilation section;
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=260489

Click on the diagram 8 in the left-hand side for ventilation for those bulbs.

Is it plugged in ?

You can check.
Line Fuse
Thermal Fuse
You can find a diagram at;
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=260489

Click on the diagram 5 in the left-hand side for interior parts and another bulb.

You can check;
Switch;
You can take a voltmeter and place it on the bulb contacts and see if voltage is present when the machine is switch on.

You can contact Whirlpool customer service here and they should be able to suggest a model which will be a "drop-in" replacement.

Are you not interested in getting yours fixed?

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

Your manual will tell you about the warranty.

You can download your owner's manual, installation instructions, etc. here.
