Question about Maytag MMV5000 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I've had this awesome built in microwave oven (1450 watts) since 1999 and today it quit...the clock, lights etc all work like normal, the microwave just doesn't heat anything up. I shouldn't complain after all these years (and I'm not), just wondering if there is something like a built in fuse or whatever that I should be checking before replacing it with a new one. Thanks so much! Appreciate your help.

It could easily be a bad line fuse and/or line filter. To access you will need to unplug the unit and remove the outside case. Inside the unit, where the A/C power cord comes in, there should be a small circuit card (part #237068) located somewhere with a fuse mounted on it. This is your input line filter board with line fuse. Replace the fuse, first and see if this fixes your problem. This is a 20amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at any hardware store. Make sure you place the cover back on the unit BEFORE you plug it in. It is not safe to have this area of the microwave exposed with power applied. High potentials in the 4,000 volt range are present! If the fuse does not correct your problem, the circuit card runs about $26.00. Good luck and hope this fixes your problem.

I have the same problem with mine!!! I spent 58 dollars to have a 6 dollar diode replaced. Now 8 months later... same prob. Replaced again myself and working fine again. Just make sure you label the wires while working on it. I didn't and it cost me 2 new fuses! Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Whirlpool MH6130XEQ-0 microwave that doesn't heat food

With the symptoms you have, I would most strongly suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a bad magnetron, or a loose and possibly corroded connection on the magnetron's terminal.

The diode is a fairly cheap fix, and your magnetron is still under the part warranty, but you would have to pay labor.

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.

d:%5cele%5crepair%5cmicrowave%5cge_hotpoint%5cmini_manual_behind_grille_small.jpgdee77f7.jpg

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html

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

If nothing else, you can save about $50-75 if you remove it from the wall and take it to a Whirlpool-authorized servicer.

You can find your nearest Whirlpool/Maytag-authorized servicer here.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

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

Re. Viking DMOS200 1100 watts microwave oven does not turn on


I'm guessing that's a VMOS200?

If so, that's a rebranded Sharp R-530ES (as is the Dacor DMO2420S) and its secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or that switch's mount is bad.

See this file on door switches. If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

The Sharp R-530E service manual will aid you in disassembly and it is here.

I have a Jenn Air over the stove microwave oven JMV8000ADW. How do I compare 1 through 10 power of my oven (1450 wattage)when looking through microwave cookbooks of lesser wattage? How do I compare their...


Power level 1 = 10%, 2 = 20%, 9 = 90%, etc.

So 1000/1450 ~ .69, so use power level 7.

Clock on Microwave


Normally on a Sharp, one of these key combinations will do it:

CLOCK > 1 > 2 > 3 > CLOCK

CLOCK > 1 > 2 > 3 > START

CLOCK > CLEAR > 1 > 2 > 3 > CLOCK

CLOCK > CLEAR > 1 > 2 > 3 > START

Let us know if this does not work.

Sounds like the problem is in the high voltage. Most common would be magnatron, capacitor and diode. For safety reasons this should be checked by a professional. Look in your owners manual because some high voltage parts have a longer warranty than 1 yr.
