The electronic control board has undersized circuit wires that can't handle a catastrophic lamp failure. The circuit trace will open like a fuse. If you or someone knows how to use a soldering iron, this can be repaired.
1. Remove the top grille. (Two screws on top)
2. Remove screw above button panel. Push up on panel to remove.
3. Remove circuit board from panel. Look on reverse side for open circuit trace.
4. Repair circuit trace...lights work again....

The lights and timer go on, but nothing from the fan, turntable nor noise from the magnetron


please follow this test and fix it. God bless you

  1. Check the power diodeThis electronic component is responsible for transmitting current in one direction. If the diode becomes defective it will cause your microwave to not heat. Test the diode and replace it if necessary.
  2. High voltage capacitorResponsible for storing electricity, this part is a key component in any microwave. Remove, discharge, and test the capacitor to determine if it requires replacement.
  3. Damaged magnetronResponsible for generating waves and producing heat. When your microwave is no longer heating properly, replacement will be required.
  4. Thermal CutoffsExamine the thermal cutoffs on both the magnetron and the oven itself. Take off one of the leads and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If you get a result other than zero, replace the thermal cutoffs.

Microwave has power, but nothing works.


The door switches are more than likely the problem, one or two will need to be replaced, I recommend a professional.

Maytag MMV5165AAS work surface light won't work. I bought a new light and replaced the old one but it still will not turn on. THe microwave display goes thought the cycle of High, Low, Off but nothing...


If the lamp socket has power (and it's the right voltage) and the replacement lamp is the correct one and tests good, then the trouble is in the socket. It may have been damaged when the original lamp went "poof." Check for damaged contacts (burnt or broken off). Also, make sure you're seating the lamp correctly in the socket. If the bulb is a push-and-turn ("bayonet") type, you may be facing it the wrong way and it's not going all the way in.

Sounds like the ERC board failed. It maybe covered under warranty, check that first cause a new ERC could cost around $150-$200. Anything electric can cause the .."what the*^&% just happened syndrome.
