It should still function fine, but it will not be safe since it will probably not blow the breaker in the event of a broken "hot" wire or other short inside the unit.

Maytag mmv4205bab continues to run after time is up. The fan does not circulate, but it continues to heat.

Our microwave in office won't shut off. It continues to heat and fan is running as soon as we close the door. Tried everything, unplugged, canceled everything. Please let me know what to do.

Maytag Microwave Model:MMV4205BAB doesn't heat up anymore! Does anyone have a FixYa Solution????

When you press start d you hear a click? If not the relay on the control board for the High Voltage section is not working. If yes then I would check the MAG, the Cap/Diode or the Transformer. Eric
