Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

I am having a hard time grasping the problem here. I have to assume that the microwave fan is the problem and not the blower fan. No worries.. ALL of your questions can be answered by this manual if you understand Technician procedures:
https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/0/52015b2c875fae4d85256a8c0062547e/$FILE/4322167.pdf

The cooling fan should be running any time the turntable is moving.

Fan motor is item 1 this link:

This is the fan motor: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3034166
It can be lubricated with a parafin based oil (Zoom Spout turbine oil) of Union 76 turbine oil. It is best to remove the mounting screws for the motor bearings and then clean the motor shaft & bearing before lubrication. Do this on both sides of the motor. Most of them can be revived with proper cleaning and lubrication.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Mike - Unplug the unit and unscrew about 4 screws on the top and then the side panel and the fuse will be in that location.

Note: If the fuse looks brown, it's definetly blown, you can get the same fuse at your local Radio Shack for about $0.97. hope this helps

Model gh7155xhs how to find and replace fuse


Hello SHahidbell,

I understand that you need to replace the fuse in you microwave. I have located the fuse for you from partselect.com its cost is $12.27 here is a link to the part http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=gh7155xhs&SearchTerm=fuse&RefineSearch=0

1. Unplug the unit
2. Remove the outercasing
3. Locate the fuse holder, this unit only has one
4. Use a pair of pliers to remove the fuse gently not to crack it
5. Install the new fuse
6. Install the outer casing
7. Plug in and try

You do not want to try the unit with the outercasing off. Microwaves give off radiation the outershell helps to reduce this radiation.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Power out on Whirlpool over-the-stove microwave


Yes, There are fuses inside the keyboard panel. I would have to take a look at the manual for the specific model you have to identify the easiest way to check the fuse.
Before you go that far check above the hood and see if you can locate the plug end of the microwave. Most installations have a dedicated receptacle above the exhaust vent and microwave. It is usually a space too small for good storage so most housewives store small items and cookbooks in this space. It is usually the culprit for a microwave suddenly going out without someone placing metal inside the oven and heating it.
Heating a metal object or operating a microwave for an extended time will usually blow the fuse.

Nothing working - just quit. Power source ok.


There are 3 fuses in that microwave. I had a similar issue. The one that I had to replace was the little ceramic fuse that is in line after the big fuse which is connected to the main line.
I couldn't find the ceramic fuse but I replaced it was a glass one about a year ago and it has been working since then. The fuse if located on the right front panel.

Whirlpool microwavewave hood comination mh3184xp


My Whirlpool MH3184xps is shooting a spark when in use with the rack. When the rack is removed the oven works fine. I am guessing that some of the coating on the rack has cracked and peeled and is exposing some aluminum. Has anyone else had this problem?

Microwave doesn?t turn on


If you're getting power at the outlet, the most common problems causing a "dead" condition are a bad thermostat (or thermal cutout / thermal fuse) on or near the magnetron, a blown internal fuse, or a problerm on the control circuit board. You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 If it seems to be a problem on your control board, we repair these for $39.95 nationwide in most cases.
