Question about Microwave Ovens
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.
