I press the time I want to cook and the light come on but the mircowave does not run. I smack the side (where the key pad is) and it will work

  1. Inspect the power cordUnplug the power cord and check for voltage at the outlet. Also inspect for damage, shorts, or burn marks that can be a possible safety hazard.
  2. Bad door switchIf your microwave does not work at all and you know everything is plugged in properly and the outlet is functioning, then also check the door hooks and the door release button. Using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check your terminals. When your microwave door is closed you should have a reading of zero. Once the door is open the reading should change to infinity. If these readings do not match up, replacement of the door switch is necessary.
  3. Blown fusesTo determine if your fuse has blown out, which may attribute to your microwave not running, you need to pull the fuse out using a pair of fuse pullers. Lay it down and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check both ends of the fuse in question. If you do not get a reading of zero, then you will need to replace the fuse.
  4. Bad fan motorLocate the fan and remove the leads. Again using the volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If an infinity reading is displayed, it means that the fan has gone bad and requires replacement.

Need help, trying to repair my Tappan Model TMV151F microwave.


That really sounds strange... It may be a door switch or a relay on the controller. (Internal contacts, not solder joints).

The service manual is here.

Did you take apart the bottom door switch to check it? Blurry but useful video here.

Under the circumstances, I would be most concerned with the bottom switch, but it wouldn't hurt to check the top one. It will not be the middle switch.

Sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove


see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    Tappan TMV151FS over range microwave starts to work and then dies


    Never run the microwave without a load (something to heat)!!! That kills the microwave generating parts.

    Sounds like a 'thermal' protect switch is activating after running. Make sure that (if the unit is mounted in a cabinet) that there is sufficient space around the unit for proper air flow and that nothing is blocking the vents. Try setting it on a counter top and heat something. If it works properly and doesn't shut off, the venting space is the problem. You may have to have the cabinet that it sits in redesigned for more clearance.

    Tappan microwave TMV151F will lose power during operation. I think around 3 or 4 minutes.


    The magnetron is overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

    Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

    This is usually caused when the internal cooling fan is not running or by a magnetron that is failing.

    When I say internal cooling fan, I do not mean the hood vent exhaust fan which you can turn on and off manually.

    I'm instead talking about the internal fan which comes on automatically whenever you microwave.

    It is vital that the cooling fan runs, or the magnetron will be
    destroyed.


    It may also be a clogged exhaust duct or filter. Grease filters should be cleaned regularly and charcoal filters should be replaced (not cleaned) every 6-12 months.

    You can refer to your owner;s manual for that info.

    You can download most Maytag / Whirlpool / Tappan owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

    If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

    You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

    There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
