Question about Whirlpool Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Have a whirlpool microwave model GH5184XPS-4. This morning I turned the "Cooktop Light" on and a few minutes later I heard a small pop, looked over and the lights had gone out. One of the bulbs was dark so I figured it just needed a replacement bulb but then realized nothing on the control panel is working. Flipped the breaker and nothing happend. Is there a fuse inside the microwave that could have blown and is it an expenseive job and is this something a normal non-handy person can take care of?

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.

I have Whirlpool gold GH5184XPS its not heating. how to troubleshooting the problem?


There will be a technical sheet hidden behind the controller assembly or elsewhere.

There is a YouTube video here which shows you how to remove the controller assembly in about 5 minutes.

You can also find it online here.

It may be a bad door switch, controller problem, inverter problem, or defective high voltage part.

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

Locating reset button on my microwave


To my knowledge none have a reset button or circuit breaker. If the unit is total dead there will be (has to be) a fuse inside the unit.

Own Whirlpool microwave model MH7100XY, everything works on it, however it does not heat anything, heard a small pop and after that it does not warm or cook anything?????


The pop sound is an indicator the magnetron is gone that heats the food. It is cheaper to replace the microwave oven than have it repaired.

We heard a "buzzing" sound and it stopped when I


I had a similar problem. Everyone said must be the magnatron or the fuse ....turned out to be a burned out (visually melted) thermal cut out switch ($12) on the top side of the microwave. Had to get down inside the top of the microwave. The cut out switch was tucked away right up against the the microwave box. Hard to diagnose your problem without looking at the unit in question though, could be several different things. However, my philosophy when it comes to repairs...start with the cheap stuff first!

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs


My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.

Cooktop/Countertop lights will not turn off


Whirlpool told you wrong. Part number is #4158940 is a door switch, but that's not the problem.

They'll sell you parts or refer you to a local servicer, but they won't help you repair your unit.

On this particular model, the solid state relay PH1 near the bottom right corner of the board will be the culprit.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

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.
