Question about Maytag MMV5000 Microwave Oven
I was replacing the two hood bulbs and as I screwed in the second one I heard a slight "pop". When I pushed the "light on" switch, neither light lit. Then, when I tried to use the unit, the microwave started but the fan that usually runs during cooking did not start and the turntable did not turn. The clock and everything else seem fine. I checked the fuse behind the keypad and it is a good fuse. Any suggestions?
We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.
This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
