Question about Whirlpool GH9185XL Microwave Oven

2 Answers

My LG Intellowave just stopped, with a small bang. I have opened it up and cannot find anything wrong, like anything burnt. Fuse looks ok. Thje screen is dead, like it is not getting any power. Can you suggest what to look for.

Check the power lines with some measure device ..and see where the power is getting short ...If it made a bang ..it means that it was a short in power somewhere .....loose wires or humidity ..
It can be just a matter of reconnecting some wires..or the main board to be out ..

The small bang means that the power source failed. You will need to look for shorts in the transformer and after failed capacitors and rectifiers. You can't do it by eye, you will need a multimeter.
Beware, the high tension part of the power source - the one that powers the magnetron - is storing 5,000 volts: use extreme caution and specially HighTension insulated tools when testing it, a simple passing touch with an usual tool can generate a discharge that will kill you instantly.

    Ask a quote before accepting the repair, if the damage is extensive you will find out that it will be cheaper just to buy another one.

LG Intellowave


If it's made for (or safe for) microwave ovens it should work in any of them, and I would just follow the steamer's instructions.

Does that answer your question or do I misunderstand the situation?

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