Microwave runs good for short heatups. But long or repeated heatups the microwave gets warm and shuts down. Will restart after cool off.

Put something to heatup after pushing start made standard startup noise then abruptly stopped working even electronics....breaker fine and receptacle working....does this unit have a fuse??


Almost all microwaves have internal fuses. Counter top micros need to remove outer case and fuse should be near where power cord enters the microwave, Fuse looks like old style glass car fuses but is white or gray ceramic. Can't look at it to tell if its bad. Need tester. Over the range (wall Micros) usually have the fuse directly behind the control panel which you will need to drop down away from the body. Same type fuse as stated before. 15 or 20 amp should be stamped on metal edge. Purchase at Radio Shack or a parts store---or some Hardware stores.

Good Day I have a Maytag stove model MER5555RCW - the top elements peform as follows: right front and rear elements do not heatup at all. The left front and rear heatup but not to the normal hight heat...


I doubt that the switches are to blame - unless they have been damaged or had something spill inside them an accident or the like.

I found a wiring diagram for the internals of the appliance. You should consult it if you decide to look into the problem. Wires seldom fail along their length - but usually at a connection point. Knowing that, you could look around the inside of the stove but only if you unplug it first. Look for burnt or broken connections at the controls and anywhere they are indicated.. Repair or replace them as needed and reconnect as indicated by the schematic. I'm betting there's a break in a wire at / on one of the connections of a terminal strip or control switch.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck! Don't forget UNPLUG the stove before starting!

Microwave makes a loud sound and then won't heat. About 3 years old.


It sounds like a failing magnetron. Sometimes they can be intermittent before they finally fail for good.

Chances are your oven has a 5-10 year warranty on the magnetron.

Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, and your detailed symptoms.

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

My whirlpool microwave model# MH1150XMB-0, light in microwave stay on, keypad work, when i try to heatup any thing i press start it will not come on or heatup any thing


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If the switch mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

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

You can 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.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

It may be a shorted high voltage diode.

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

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

Intermittant heating


You probably have a new unit by now. The Magnetron part inside usually is the problem with this Maytag unit.I have had this unit blow the 'Magnetron' four times ! Everything else works fine. After watching the technician, I replaced it myself the other 3 times. The whole unit has to come out of the wall to do this. This High Voltage part is dangerous. The part costs about $100.00 from an online parts store. Partselect.com- or someone else.

Whirlpool Micrwave, model #mh6150xls-1


Since you tested the door switches (my number one suspect) I would think you have a bad relay or a bad connection on the control panel circuit board. We repair these nationwide for $32.50, which is usually economical for most models. Just to make sure you have checked the door switches thoroughly, you can find my helpful text file called "doorsw.txt" via a Google search. It has important safety information and tips.
