Question about Whirlpool GH6177XP Microwave Oven
Our microwave will heat just fine then in the middle of heat cycle the microwave will stop heating for a while then start working again. You can only tell when the microwave stops heating by a change in the sound the microwave makes.
Is there a circuit break that could be tripping and resetting inside the microwave?
That's how it would sound if you were cooking on a power level less than full power.
If you enter the cooking time and hit Start, it should cook at full power by default and not cycle like you describe.
If you are using some sensor cook setting or automatic type cooking setting, it may cycle like that normally.
The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.
Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.
