Question about Whirlpool MH2155XP Microwave Oven

Open Question

I use a AVM 562 whirlpool microwave. It's working fine except that it doesn't heat up anything. When inquired about this to a local electrician he said that the power that is going to the microwave heater from touch pad is not proper. He asked me to replace it and he says it will cost 1500 Rs(indian rupees) for the same. What is the actual cost of it in India??

You should be able to download your owner's manual (instructions for use) here.

Enter either all or part of the model number of the appliance (e.g. AFG 549) or the 12 digit numeric code, (usually starting with 85) that can be found on the service sticker of your appliance.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: everything works except the cooking part/no heating/turntable not turning, help!

you may have gotten a power surge and that can cause some funny things to happen, 1st is there power to the oven, 2nd if so there may be an internal fuse protector built in to the oven, check with the manual for anything of that sort listed. if not you may have to take it in and have it repaired by a pro. there is a lot of voltage in these ovens and unless you know what you are doing a person could get hurt

About 95% of the time it is the magnatron. If the microwave is under 5 years old that part is often covered under warranty. I would check your manual. If not the p/n is 8206335 and it's about $80 and fairly easy to install. I just looked and the magnatron is covered.

Labor to replace it would be about $125

SOURCE: No heat but everything else works

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

Whirlpool microwave AVM 585 - none of the control buttons are working, except the number 1.


The electronics on your control panel have gone bye bye. That is why to this date I have always preferred the nukes with the old fashioned timer. They always work and when anything goes it is the little motor that can be easily replaced at nominal cost..

Newer is not always better. Might look better but .....................

I have a Whirlpool GH5176XPS microwave and everything seems to work fine except that it does not heat anything. I have checked all the fuses and they are fine. Any suggestions?


The problem is more than likely a bad magnetron, "heats food" the other two considerations are the high voltage capacitor and diode.

Suggest you pull the plug out, remove outer cover and place a cup of water into the micro. Set power to minimum then switch on and take note if the fan works or not. If not, switch off immediately and have it replaced(magnatron will burn out if left to run without fan.)

Unit operates does not heat anything


A defective diode or magnetron can cause the oven to sound differently and not to cook.

Microwave will not heat


If all controls on the panel work fine but the microwave does not heat, then either you have a defective door switch,the smartboard is defective, or you have a defective magnatron.Most likely one of those three.
