    Thank you for your prompt response. It is indeed the internal cooling fan.



    I could probably test & fix or replace the part/fuse or whatever myself if I only had a repair or service manual. Unlike most appliance manufacturers these days they have not made them available on-line. They don't even publish a parts list.



    It's just 3 weeks over warranty. I will be calling their service no. today, at least to see about getting a service manual if they won't authorize a warranty repair. I'll keep you advised.

    Do you mean the hood / vent fan or the internal cooling fan?

    If it's the latter, it will need to be repaired or the magnetron will be destroyed.

    Since
    it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.
    I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

    You can find your nearest Maytag-authorized servicer here.

    If it's out of warranty, please reply back and we can offer repair advice.

As promised, here is your solution information:

You can download Maytag owner's manuals, installation instructions, and parts lists here.

You can find the service manual (which may not have a parts list) by selecting Literature by Model on this page and entering your exact model number with suffix. (Also try it without suffix if you have trouble).

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

You need all three of those documents in some cases.

Finally, you can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

My microwave oven isn't heating my food. Everything else works, the fan, the lights and the keypad. The microwave turns and sounds like everything is working but the food won't get hot. It is only 1 yr...


If it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty and you should contact the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Some have longer warranties, and that will be covered in your owner's manual.

Maytag MMV4205BA microwave buzz/grind when operating then no power


you may have some arching inside where your magnatron is located.If you open the door on the right middle part there is a silverplate on the wall .If it is burned you may need to replace magnatron.if you do not seee burn marks it may still be the magnatron hope.that would be the only possible thing that would make the noise other then the mtor plate out of place.

Help with repair for LG 2055ST


Check the internal fuse. Unplug it, unscrew and take off the cover, the fuse should be easily found in the back by the power cord. I tlooks like a regular fuse but is white instead of clear glass because microwave fuses are special. You'll have to measure it with a meter as a result and be sure to replace it with the same kind. (try finding them at radio shack) Hopefully there isn't something more serious also.

Microwave cooked dinner and now does work


I had the same exact problem -- turned out the cooling fan for the magnetotron wasn't coming on because of a bad relay on the main control board. When the magnetotron overheated a safety kicked on which tripped an internal relay and killed power to the unit. GE repair guy diagnosed and resolved the problem. Only snag was that they didn't have a spare board so I had to wait a few days for them to deliver a replacement and for the guy to come back and install it. Now has been working for 5 days... of course I probably jinxed myself now! :)

4205 stops after a few seconds, beeps, every segment of every digit lights up.


Sabotaged??? What could they mean by that?? It could be a bad control panel or connection, but I would say you have a bad magnetron, the magnetron is mounted loosely, or the RF gasket (mesh washer) on the magnetron is missing, loose or damaged. I would contact MayTag and see if they have a different authorized servicer in your area, or get on the phone and complain to them in great detail. Do not put up with this, please.
