Hotpoint counter saver microwave circuit board

The circuit board is out on my RVM120G001, and I thought I read here some time ago that I could send it somewhere and have it repaired for about $40.

The vent fan on my over the range Whirlpool microwave (mh1150xmq-0) runs any time I use the microwave (as if I have turned the vent fan on "low"). This doesn't seem to affect cooking, but it...


You either have a shorted exhaust fan thermostat or a shorted fan relay on the control circuit board.

While we regularly repair these controllers by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee, or you can order a new control circuit board (part number) from the Pros here, we strongly suggest that you or someone you know check the exhaust fan thermostat first.

It should read "open" on a continuity (ohms) test. If it reads closed (shorted) it is bad and the fan will run all the time.

Or you can simply unplug the oven's power, disconnect one lead from the thermostat, tape it over to prevent shorting, then plug the oven back in. If the fan still comes on, the problem is on the board. If it does not, the thermostat is shorted.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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.

My microwave stays on (won't shut off unless door is open); and it reads "F6 error"


"F6" means you have a shorted cook relay on the control circuit board.

Exhaust fan runs continuously on Maytag microwave. Please help


> MMV5165BAB hood vent fan runs continuously

You probably have either a shorted base thermostat on the base of the chassis of the oven or a shorted fan relay on the control circuit board.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here for free download to help you.

The base thermostat (which I believe has thinner pink and yellow wires attached, but not thicker black wires) should read normally open. If it shows continuity (virtually zero ohms or shorted) then it is bad.

Otherwise, I would say you have a shorted fan relay on the control circuit board.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

Turnaround is usually about a week "door to door".

The problem is on the circuit board, but we ask that you send the control panel assembly, by which we mean the plastic control panel frame, keypad, and circuit board as an assembly.

Replacement bulbs still do not work


Most electronic control boards have undersized circuit wires that can't handle a catastrophic lamp failure. The circuit trace will open like a fuse. If you or someone knows how to use a soldering iron, this can be repaired.
1. Remove the top grille. (Two screws on top)
2. Remove screw above button panel. Push up on panel to remove.
3. Remove circuit board from panel. Look on reverse side for open circuit trace.
4. Repair circuit trace...lights work again....

If you need further assistance, let me know

Lights under the microwave won't turn off


The problem is in the control board of the microwave. We repair these circuit boards nationwide for this problem for only $32.50. For more information you can do a search on Yahoo.com (not Google) for: microwave circuit repair It's a good idea to also send a copy of the technical note sheet from inside the oven when you send the assembly in for repair. This problem is caused when the bulbs are disconnected (or blow apart from) the sockets while the power is on. Power should always be disconnected before replacing bulbs, but sometimes they just fail on their own and short, causing them to "blow" like yours did. Also, be sure to avoid cheap bulbs, as we feel they have less chance of shorting and may hold up better.
