Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Oven doesn't heat

This is a 2002 Maytag electric microwave oven, model #MM5186AA. It no longer heats. The touch pad no longer beeps. After I put in the time and hit start the turn table turns and it sounds as if it is heating but the timer won't count down and the food doesn't get warm. When I set the clock it will not keep time. It will stay at the time which was set. I have checked the child safety lock and it is off. Had a repairman out who did all that I tried and then said I probably had a bad circuit board. He reccomended that I buy a new oven. What do you think?

Did you or the the repair man do a hard reset?

Thefirst thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for aminute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Plus, I'm assuming your model is actually MMV5186AA, right?

If it turns out to be a bad board, we actually repair those for customers nationwide for $39.95 in most cases.

Why is the outside panel hot to the touch?


Many factors at play here. Are you cooking on the range? Are you using the microwave? Is the light on?
There is very little current going to the touchpad and if there were a short in it the touch pad would not work. It is just heat from another source. Don't worry about it.

As with most situations, it depends on the model number, but try this:

To set child lock:

1. Touch STOP/CLEAR pad.

2. Touch and hold 0 pad more than 4 seconds. LOCKED will appear in the display window and oven will beep twice.

To cancel child lock:

1. Touch and hold 0 pad for more than 4 seconds. LOCKED will disappear from the display and the oven will beep twice.

Microwave no longer heats, makes more noise than it did when it was heating. Microwave is a Maytag, model # MMV4205BAW. Thanks.


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.

You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.
