The cooktop lamps on my Whirlpool MH6130XEQ-1 microwave do not work. Their receptacles receive 70 V AC, no matter whether and how many times the soft switch is pushed.

I just saw this inquiry today, and while you may have already dealt with this, here is my answer, in case it might help you or others:

We see and repair this on a regular basis with our $39.95 service. Details are here.

It's a problem caused when the cooktop lights fail or are removed or inserted with the power still on.

They short internally, and the resulting surge damages the control circuit board.

It can affect fan and oven light operation, keeping them from working or leaving them stuck on.

If you prefer to replace your control circuit board, you can order it (part number 8172054, formerly 4359661) for $168.39 plus
shipping from the Pros here.

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

How to change bottom light bulb


I have to assume that you are referring to the cooktop lamp.
Under the microwave there is one screw to remove to access the lamp. It is a 30 watt candelabra base lamp.
It shows on page 14 of the user manual below. http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%208185379.pdf

Whirlpool microwave gh7208xrb-3 fuse is good but the unit has no powernothing lights up at all it like it is dead.


Control board might be dead. Cost is quite high could run up to $200 or more. Many times I recommend just to replace it. Here's the dumb question, is power present at receptacle?, if over range microwave, in cabinet above microwave? Check for gfci receptacle tripped. Sometimes fuses appear good, always be sure to test with a meter.

The Mocrowave Panasonic NN P295 stopped working. Not a single light is on. I checked the power at the receptacle - is OK. May be the fuse inside the microwave was blown. How can I replace the fuse. Where...


Did you recently have trouble with the cooktop lights?

Sometimes when the cooktop lights blow or are inserted or removed while the oven is still plugged in, the filaments can short, causing a surge that damages the controller.

They can be repaired. More details here.

Microwave does not heat if time is less than 1 min 30 seconds


Generally speaking, charcoal filters should be changed and grease filters should be cleaned about every six months, or whenever you notice they are getting dirty & clogged. Yours will likely have one or the other - probably not both - depending on whether it's vented or it recirculates.

A clogged filter will cause the supply of cooling air flow to be lessened, allowing the magnetron to overheat. It only takes one severe overheating to damage or destroy a magnetron.

One common way for a magnetron to fail is that its heating power is less and less, then it just stops heating.

Magnetron's will usually have a warranty of 5-9 years, but you'd still have to pay the installation labor.

You can save a $75-90 home visit by removing the oven form the wall and taking it to a local Whirlpool-authorized warranty servicer.

The date of manufacture will be on the model tag in the unit, and the warranty terms will be in the owner's manual. Many manufacturers will use the serial number and date of manufacture to validate the warranty in lieu of a sales receipt.

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

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs


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.

Whirlpool microwavewave hood comination mh3184xp


My Whirlpool MH3184xps is shooting a spark when in use with the rack. When the rack is removed the oven works fine. I am guessing that some of the coating on the rack has cracked and peeled and is exposing some aluminum. Has anyone else had this problem?
