It could be that the magnetron is faulty and is pulling to much current or the hv transformer is overvolting causing it to pull to much will need to get a clamp meter and put it on the live or negative input lead and turning it on ,if it goes over 13 amp you have a problem with either of these will then have to check the magnetron by disconnectint the wiring and trying it again.if it stills pulls to much current then the h.v transformer will be faulty.hopes this helps regards les

New microwave stopped working after 15 seconds

Possibly the fuse / breaker is tripped, usually all outlets in one room share same breaker. Check breakers (or fuses) or try outlet in differnt room. If the outlet has power, (plugin a lamp to check) and the microwave still does not work, take it back to store for replacement or refund.

I have a maytag micro/hood combo that stopped working the other day when it was used. We thought the timer was set for 18 min, however the microwave was actually cooking the entire 18 min. The unit worked...

Try a hard rest of the electronics to restore unit to factory defaults. If that does not do it your logic board has failed and if not too expensive you might want to replace it. Check it out at site Search Over 2 1 Million Appliance Parts

My maytag microwave blew the ciruit breaker a several times last night. I reset the circuit breaker each time. Then the last time, I reset the circuit breaker and the microwave did not get power back....

If there's no other appliance on that circuit, then please stop trying to use the microwave. You could be dealing with a dead short, and those sometimes leave people,,,DEAD!

I would be really cautious about trying to use it anymore without checking it first for a direct short.

You need to allow the circuit breaker more time to reset, flip to off and give it 2 minutes, then turn it back on. You should feel the distinctive click, as well as hear it if it's working properly.

Circuit breakers can go bad after repeated failures within a circuit.

The outlet could also be damaged now, but normally it's the circuit breaker getting too hot with repeated failures.

If there are a number of other items on the same circuit, then try the microwave in a plug that you know has no other items being used at the same time, preferably while wearing heavy duty leather insulating gloves to protect yourself from any possible shock. If the circuit breaker blows, you've got a possible electrical short within the microwave.
Good luck!

I need an instruction manual

press both Hour and Min buttons simultaneously for two seconds. You will hear a beep and the timer will reset. Don't press any other buttons for twenty seconds. The display will now change from the time to the clock. Press the hour botton. The hour digit will blink. Use the Min button to set the hour. Once you have the right hour, press the Hour button again, and the minute digits will blink. Press the Min button to set the minutes. Once you have the correct time, press the hour button one last time and your time is now set.
