20 Most Recent Maytag MMC5000 Microwave Oven Questions & Answers

My Whirlpool microwave, over the stove, stopped working when my son used it to heat his food and a heavy sound came out, like something exploded in it. When I check it, there was nothing broke. Everything works fine except that it does not heat. I will appreciate any help

its likley to be a burnt out magnatron (thats the part that heats the food up) if its burnt out then a fix would cost as much as a new microwave would there is nothing you yourself can do to fix it and just trying to could kill you so to be on the safe side drop it in the shop for repair or bump it and buy a nice new one

Some units use a plastic or fiberglass cover over the wave guide where the microwaves are dumped into the oven cavity. If this cover gets coated with food/grease, or soaks up grease, it can arc, or catch fire. If unit is still operating properly otherwise, I would suggest replacing the cover. You need to inspect the wave guide, also, to make sure it is still intact, and there are no cracks in it that would allow microwave radiation to escape.

One or two of the door switches are more than likely defective.

The issue is with the door switch or the thermostat located near the turntable motor is bad and should be replaced. If it was the fuse the unit will not even work, so I believe it is the door switch and I don't think that the control can go bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
