Question about Microwave Ovens

2 Answers

MMV5207BAW: The only way this microwave will work is to use the "add 30sec. buttom, puching it the number of times you want to keep the microwave cooking! Pushing any selected Pre-programmed item keys will start the microwave and then after just a second or two, it stops and the display indicates an erroe code of E-11. This happens no matter what keypad selection is made. Unfortunately, after purchase and installation, major health issues kept me from calling back the vendor to solve this problem when the product was still under waranty. Any help to resolve/re-program this unit would be appreciated!

    IT IS ERROR CODE E-11 not F11. It's been doing this for 5 years since it's been installed. It acts like it's never been programmed! I was fighting cancer for several years and was told I was terninal (wrong diagnosis) and have fully recovered now. I have been trying to play catch up with many honey-doos. This is a big one to get fixed for my wife! Dennis Griffin

    F 11 code. it is a touch pad error.
    If you just cleaned the control panel it may have water in the panel causing a key to stick.
    If after a day or 2 it hasn't dried out - then you will need to replace the touch pad. I will research this a little more but that is the most common issue and that is what the code is telling me.

    IT'S NIT ERROR CODE F11 BUT E-11.....IT SEEMS THAT NO FUNCTIONS HAVE BEEN ORIGINALLY PROGRAMMED INTO THE MICROWAVE. IT'S BEEN ACTING THE SAME WAY SINCE IT WAS INSTALLED NEARLY 5 YEARS AGO BUT I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING CANCER AND FORGOT ABOUT THE PROBLEM.

    ERROR CODE E-11 IS WHAT IS DISPLAYED AFTER HITTING ANY KEYPAD ENTRY...EXCEPT add 30 sec.

Sounds like a defective touchpad or control have you checked the fuses located inside the unit if you check the fuses and all are well the next step would be to replace the touch pad in your unit usually these come attached to the control but on some instances i have seen there sold seperately here is also the manual for your machine as well http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/6130/MAYTAG-Microwave-Hood-Combo-L0604498?brand_name_search=MMV5207BAW+MAYTAG after checking quickly these are both seperate parts 1 and part 4 in these diagrams you need to be able to distinguish between if the touch pad or the control is causeing the fault Thanks Rick

    F 11 code. it is a touch pad error. After researching back forums this code always comes up touch pad, and that makes sense if your having this issue. Would you like me to help with parts or instalation? The touch pad and controller are intigrated as one. You can call the vendor if youlike and see if they will honor your warranty, if not new parst maybe a reduction in costs for repair. Explain your situation and believe it or not, most place will work with you on this.

    While researching this issue, it seems that Maytag has had more issues with this touchpad than I can count, so they are aware of this and should extend your warranty or at least work with you on the repair.

    This is the answer to your issue and if you have questions please feel free to get back with me and I will do what ever it is you need. .

    You can find parts here if you like. http://www.maytag.com/

    I hope I helped a little today.

    I Apologize I keep typing F-11 I MEAN E-11 TOUCH PAD ERROR. F-11 is for washing machines and I get that so many times it is burnt in my head. The solution I posted is correct. Sorry for the mis understanding.

Microwave model MMV5207BAW won't power up when pluged in. Outlet has power but microwave wont power up.


Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

The start & stop buttoms are not working , the oven powerline is showing on and the temparature regulator is working but the start & stop buttoms are not operating.


The buttons are not working due to the fact the "Brain" has detected a fault condition, most likely the Power Supply and or magnetron, or High Power Diode, has "Faulted" and it shuts down for Safety reasons. Due to the danger existing inside MW, I recommend that you have it serviced by a qualified person. Always get a firm "Quote" before proceeding with any work. Be careful, as often a repair may cost as much as a new one.

I have Emerson Microwave #mw8999sv which has the Express Cook option- cooking 1 - 6 minutes. How do I cook for 1 minute 30 seconds, etc.? Thank you.


The owner's manual is here. On page 10 we find:

COOKING IN ONE STAGE
1. Press the POWER button; the Microwave and High
Cook indicators will light and “PL 10” will light in the
display.
2. Press the POWER button different times to set the
desired power; the display will show the percentage
you chose. If selecting power level 70%-10%, the
Low Cook indicator will light instead of the High
Cook indicator.
3. Press number keys to set the desired cooking time.
OPERATION(CONTINUED)
4. Press the START/+30SEC. button to start cooking;
the Microwave and one of the Cook indicators will
blink and the display will countdown the remaining
cooking time in minutes and seconds. It will beep
five times when cooking is completed.

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