Question about Maytag MMV4205 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Maytag Over the Range Microwave

Our microwave started acting funny this morning. First it died this morning, after my husband shut the door. By died, I mean that we thought it had come unplugged. The display was dark, none of the kepyapd feature would work, and the light was off when we opened the door. Miraculously, after a few minutes of playing with the keypad, it came back on. Later today, I had something cooking in there, and after running for about 45 seconds, it died again. We unplugged it and plugged it back in and it was OK. Tonight we tested it by putting in a bowl of water. It worked until my husband opened the door. Then it died again, and even unplugging it didn't help. About 1/2 hour later we tried plugging it in again and it worked. Any idea what's up with this crazy thing? Its only about six months old.

Assuming the entire power line from the breaker to the microwave cord is okay, it's almost certainly a bad connection on the circuit board of the control panel assembly. For reference, we repair these from all over the country for $32.50 postpaid.

Maytag microwave model mmv1153baw light won't shut off and won't start


Hi,

Either the latch in door (spring related) is not in the correct location or you have a door switch issue and its not expensive to fix if you husband is handy. Part number you can use is 28QBP0495 or the factory one 3405-001034 (more expensive). This issue is common and these switches are located inside the control panel on the left side, the switch you seek is the lowest one in the bracket of three. Good Luck and I hope this helps.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/gere_bf68e6055dd61249

You should first be sure your filters are clean and that your ductwork is clear.

See this link for a bulletin that may address your problem.

Otherwise, see this link in case you have a sticky door switch or relay.

My husband heated up something in the microwave and when he took his food out he bumped the latch and broke it and then shut the door. Now we can't even get it open. How do I open the door so I can see...


You would need a new "door latch". It's a pretty easy do it yourself job.

You can look it up and find helpful exploded views by entering model number (as FMT118E1W0) at the Pros' site here.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo).

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

Microwave won't shut off


The door switches are what tells the microwave that the door is opened or closed. If they play up they could be causing your microwave to act strangely.

Keypad is going crazy


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.

Starting by itself


Time for a service call. Should not turn on by itself at any cause. Circuit board is my guess. May be cheaper/easier to get new microwave. My first one lasted about 15 yrs--and the circuit board (touchpad) died. Bought new microwave oven.
