This overdesigned monster has a 20A fuse, two 4A fuses, and two or three oven cavity thermostats, any of which can render the oven dead.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven (GH5184XPS4 without dashes) here.

Accessing some components (particularly the oven cavity thermostats) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

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

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

Blowing breaker


In general house hold circuit breaker of the house is 15 Amps or 20 Amps.

Either you have defected (weak) circuit breaker and wiring or bad Microwave oven.

The 99.99 % house hold Microwave ovens pull less than 15 Amps. They may have internal ceramic 15A fuse or 15 Amp internal circuit breaker.

To isolate your problem:

1. Plug your Microwave oven to different areas (different electrical circuit) if the different circuit breaker still trips... your Microwave oven has a short - Most of them has a small ceramic fuse 15 amps fuse.-also check some inter lock switches at door .

2. If the Microwave oven works Ok then you may have:

2a. You may overload the existing electrical circuit, try to unplug some other appliances

2b. You may have bad electrical outlet receptacle (Replace it with the same type , - may need helps from licensed electrician)

2c. Weak or defect house hold circuit breaker. (Replace it with the same type , brand - may need helps from licensed electrician)

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.

yup most probably that is the case.

you can locate the fuse usually it is placed near the main power supply or just trace the supply cord going in your unit. but before you open your unit be sure it is unplug to avoid electric shock.

slowly disassemble the unit and be sure that you can replace all the screws back to it original positions. after locating the fuse, check if it has a continuity and be sure to replace the same fuse rating. also investigate why the fuse had blown up and look for abnormalities.

if nothing found then replace the fuse and put all back then test the unit. if still it blows fuse, their must be something wrong with the unit and have it service to qualified personnel.

Whirlpool gh5184xps over-the-counter microwave no power


There is a high voltage fuse in the unit attatched to the high voltage capacitor, it is the most common problem for microwaves not working. Also check the protective diode,the high voltage capacitor as well as the transformer if the fuse is ok. Good Luck.

I believe you have a bad circuit breaker or fuse. If you have a delay fuse contrilling this circuit, that would explain the spotty availability of power to the outlet. Also, a faulty circuit breaker can operate in an irregular way, as you describe.
A microwave oven requires a lot of power, relatively speaking. If your microwave is a 1200 watt model, for example it draws 12 amps of power, which could well be almost all of the power available at that outlet, providing that other appliances were not also drawing power from that circuit at the same time.
I can assist you further, but if this information is all you need to proceed that is fine too. Get back if you need more assistance.
