Question about Amana MVH220E Microwave Oven

Microwave oven - Amana Model MVH220E

We are having a problem with the microwave. The power comes on - meaning the key pad works, the exhaust fan works below, but there is not power inside the unit. If you hit say a minute the timer will run, butwill not work inside. We have tried unplugging it, checked the circuit - still not working inside. Any suggestions? We have had it for11 years.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

How to get to stirrer on amana mvh220e microwave oven?


You don't have to do that kind of disassembly to get to the stirrer on this model.

The stirrer is located under the floor plate, which is probably ceramic and certainly fragile.

It's held in place with a rubber gasket, which you should be careful not to tear.

You can use a butter knife or putty knife to gently lift up the front of the floor plate, then it will slide forward & out.

Then you'll see the stirrer.

If the gasket is torn, it should be replaced or sealed with caulk after a thorough degreasing and cleaning.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
