Question about Microwave Ovens
My whirlpool mh1140xm microwave/light and vent stopped working. I removed the grease filters to clean them, As I was putting them back, there was a 'blow sound' and the microwave is not working. What could have happened? How can I fix it?
We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which
we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.
This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.
Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
