Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

My 87 year old mother just bought a new Maytag over-the-range microwave model MMV1153BAW. The bolt that came with it is too short to install it into her cupboard configuration. She says it is a #6 metric bolt, about 4 inches, and she needs one about 5-1/2 inches. She's gone to hardware and big box stores and they don't have any that are long enough. Can you help? Thank you!

She may need to buy a length of "all-thread" of the right size, cut it down, and then add two nuts to the tool end so it can be turned and installed.

If you're not sure, you can ask about it at the hardware store, and even show them the attached photo.

#mmv4203dw installation, the old one is out


The new microwave oven dimensions are 29 7/8" wide, with a depth of 15 1/2" and a height of 16 15/16". These measurements are listed on page 3 of your installation manual. If you do not have an installation manual, you can go to managemylife.com and type in the model number you provided under the "Manuals" link. The owner's and installation manuals are both listed in .pdf (Adobe) format that you can download or print for FREE.

So...to answer your initial question, "Yes", this model microwave oven will fit in the space that your old one previously occupied.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

My maytag microwave lost power


There is always a fuse inside a microwave.Sometime this has only blown due to a surge,and upon replacing, the microwave will continue working.If it is something worse the fuse will continue to blow.In this case it could very well be the transformer,but there are other possible causes as well.(for example the control board or a short.)

Microwave shuts down after cooking three or four minutes


Your magnetron is overheating and tripping the thermostat, which interrupts power until it cools.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

MMV1153BAW - Exhaust Fan


You or the installer should refer to both the installation instructions and owner's manual to be sure the venting is correct, the filters are not clogged, and the outside exhaust is not blocked, such as by an animal nest.

Proper cooktop ventilation is very important to keep the microwave cool and keep steam and grease out of the controls.

Over the range MV Oven shuts down from heat


it is triggering the overtemp switch. try to check the vent outlet, it could be clogged with dirt. or the cooling fan of the magnetron is no longer running. could be stuck up because of not being used for a long time.
