Question about Whirlpool MH7130XE Microwave Oven

Open Question

Hello - we own a Whirlpool Microwave Hood Combo (model MH7130XE) and recently the bulbs have burned out and I replaced them but they are still not working. Could this be a fuse that needs replaced? If so, may I have the part number to purchase from our local Appliance Parts Store? Thank you, Cody Seaman

That's what I thought.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.

SOURCE: The light bulbs in the

Hi,

When the microwave lights don't work, the problem is either the light bulbs, or the relay on the display control board. If you've already replaced the light bulbs and that didn't fix the problem, the relay is shorted and the display control board will need to be replaced. It's very common for the relay on the control board to short out when the bulb does because the relay is very weak. The only fuses on this microwave cut out the entire display and all the lights. There is absolutely nothing between the control board relay and the lights other than wire.

You just unplug the microwave, then remove the screws going into the top plastic vent grille. Remove the vent and that will expose a screw at the top of the control panel. Remove that screw and the control panel will pull up and off. That will allow you to access and replace the control board.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Microwave MH7130XEB-2 stopped working while cooking. Is now dead. Check plug and breaker box, they are ok. Is it an internal fuse? If so what part # do I need?


Hello :

Problem with the power transformer or the power PCB . Or it could be just a fuse . You need to check first . If it's the fuse , then that will be easy to solve , you need only to replace it with new one . But if the problem is with the transformer or with the PCB , you need to take your microwave to the service .

You could check for manual here :

Well here is the delima...Customer changes one of the light bulbs without unplugging unit.....this allows a cap. to discharge on the main computer PCB and zaps the on/off light function.

Contact whirlpool customer service they may may help you out.
This is a known issue.

Whirlpool MH7140XFQ-1 light does not switch from regular to night


If there are 2 bulbs try swapping them around. If the night light works then you just need a bulb. Take the bad one with you and match it up at a parts store. Some actually have a dimmer circuit programmed in the board and that will not be a easy fix. Do you hear a click when you try to activate the night mode? If you cannot find a bulb or do not want to replace or repair the unit just disclose the non working light. I was in real estate for a couple years and a burned out bulb will not be a deal breaker as long as they are told up front.
