I would say at a reasonable safe height. There is no requirement by the machine governing that measurement.

When i start my microwave it runs for a few seconds then blows the circuit breaker.


You perhaps have too many large appliances running on one particular circuit. Try unplugging everything you aren't using (coffee maker, toaster, etc) and if that doesn't work, I would suggest contacting an electrician to evaluate the circuits in your kitchen. You could also replace high wattage appliances for smaller ones, say a 750W microwave,

How is the capacitor connected to the magnetron, the diode and the trasnformer in a Maytag microwave - MMV5156AA


The magnetron is a tube with a heater/cathode element in the middle of a series of scallop-like grooves that surround the cathode, but spaced away from the cathode. A small, insulated wire protrudes into one of the scallops and extracts the microwave energy that passes down the wave-guide, past a fan-like device called a stirrer that scatters the energy just before entering the cooking cavity.The magnetron requires a low voltage/high current AC heater supply plus a 3000 to 5000 volt DC supply that is hooked to the cathode of the magnetron. The transformer supplies both voltages as AC waveforms. The diode makes the HV AC supply into HV DC by passing current in one direction only and the capacitor stores/smooths that HV DC into relatively stable DC for connection to the cathode of the magnetron. The other side of the DC supply is tied to case ground as is the outer case of the magnetron. This arrangement is typical of all microwave ovens (and radars).

Maytag mmv5156aas:The button overlay melted. How do I obtain one


your part number is 53001039.
Here is the picture
and it is in stock here (use coupon "New10" for 10% off)

As far as I can tell you need to remove the grille on top to get to the screw on top of the control panel/overlay assembly. The grille is usually held by 3 screws on top or in front of the grille.

Does not heat


Chances are you have a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a failed magnetron.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html

Thereshould also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which isvery helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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.
