There is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.
So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off.
Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if contact is not through the microwave will not work.

Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on, use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely

Hi i put a plate in which has a gold rim on it, Only for a few seconds ,has this blown the fuse inside the microwave? I have changed the plug fuse but no joy, The microwave is only about 1 year old


WORKING ON MICROWAVE OVENS IS DANGEROUS!!
That said, since you've already changed the fuse it's likely the magnetron has shot itself in the eye and died. If you want to press on and troubleshoot, here's an excellent troubleshooting guide:

Again, be sure to discharge any capacitors.

Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.

It just died


Check the AC line fuse. This will require you to remove cover.

Maytag Over the Range Microwave


Assuming the entire power line from the breaker to the microwave cord is okay, it's almost certainly a bad connection on the circuit board of the control panel assembly. For reference, we repair these from all over the country for $32.50 postpaid.
