Question about Whirlpool GH9185XL Microwave Oven

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.

Oven heats, but light, fan and turntable do not come on.


Hi Ted

many microwaves have safety mechanisms to reverse, or stop the turntable if it senses resistance to the turning. This is done both because
  1. the turntable is usually driven by a small motor with a gear reduction transmission to get more torque on the glass platter and your food, and if something resists the turning, it can damage the gear train or belt if it keeps running.
  2. if you have something with liquid in it and it hits a wall, it could tip over, possibly spilling scalding liquid all over and maybe surprising the person who opens the door.
In some cases, it'll just stop and then try again the next time you run the microwave. The banging on the case sometimes turning things back on suggests that either something in the turntable mechanism is awry, or that there is a common hot wire, ground loop, or possibly fuse for the light/fan/turntable.

the manual for the oven doesn't really say anything about this.

You can see generic intructions on looking for an internal fuse here
Panasonic Microwave NN CT552W has no power plug fuse ok Has it got thermal... . Please, in particular, make sure you unplug the oven before opening anything. This is one of those devices where defeating the interlocks and having it turn on can seriously hurt you.

With regard to the turntable, in particular, it's really easy over time for exploded spaghetti sauce, spilled cocoa, and overmelted butter to have run down into the indentation in the middle of the bottom of the oven cavity. Remove the platter. Is it clean in there? Does it look like the 'this person never flosses' picture for mechanical rotors? If so, start with some kitchen cleaner and a washcloth damp (not soaked) with hot water. Let the cloth steam /warm the area a bit, wipe it down. repeat if necessary. If there's a lot of cruft built up there, that could be keeping you on the edge of safety shut-down.

Good Luck!

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.
