Question about Whirlpool RMC275PD Microwave Oven

Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave won't start

All displays work. When I set my time and press 'start' or 'add minute' botton, it doesn't start. It just gives 3 quick beeps (like an error beep). Any help will be appreciated.

I would first suggest unplugging the oven for a few minutes to give it a reset. On Whirlpool brand microwaves, you will hear a series of beeps when you hit START if one of the following is true: - the control panel is not programmed correctly - the door is not shut - there is a problem with the door latch system - there is a problem with the control panel If you do not have your owner's manual, you can download it here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/literature_search_results.jsp?searchTerm=RMC275PD#literror It doesn't sound like the control panel is locked. When the control panel lock is activated, you will see "Loc" and a lock symbol in the display and only the clock, timer, and oven light will operate. If that does not solve the problem, then you have oneof the other problems as listed above. If you need further help, please reply / add a comment here.

Door error message on microwave whirlpool Gold rmc275pd

This indicates the door is not latching. The simplest fix is if it really isn't closed, and simply pressing on the door does the trick. Not so lucky? Latch mechanism itself may be dirty and not latching. Try cleaning it with standard spray kitchen cleaners and a good scrub, followed by a toweldry. Still no good? There's often an electronic interlock-- a place outside the latch, perhaps along the face of door, which must contact the body of the microwave oven. Again, try cleaning all possible contact areas. No? OK: microwaves are designed not to run without a tight seal to prevent emissions. perhaps the seal itself is damaged. Finally, and most unhappily, and expensively, the electronics module in the combo unit is shot. If the appliance is under warranty you're in like flynn; if it's relatively new but not under warranty, call the Whirlpool service 800 number and very politely but firmly remind them that this is really quite a new unit and certainly their products aren't meant to fail so soon... and surely they have a service bulletin because this can't have just happened to you... This will usually result in (oh happy day!) a free service call or (more common) a deal to sell the part at half price. Better than nothing!

I have Emerson Microwave #mw8999sv which has the Express Cook option- cooking 1 - 6 minutes. How do I cook for 1 minute 30 seconds, etc.? Thank you.

The owner's manual is here. On page 10 we find:

COOKING IN ONE STAGE
1. Press the POWER button; the Microwave and High
Cook indicators will light and “PL 10” will light in the
display.
2. Press the POWER button different times to set the
desired power; the display will show the percentage
you chose. If selecting power level 70%-10%, the
Low Cook indicator will light instead of the High
Cook indicator.
3. Press number keys to set the desired cooking time.
OPERATION(CONTINUED)
4. Press the START/+30SEC. button to start cooking;
the Microwave and one of the Cook indicators will
blink and the display will countdown the remaining
cooking time in minutes and seconds. It will beep
five times when cooking is completed.

I have a Whirlpool gold accubake microwave / oven combo model number GMC305PDS07. The microwave will not turn on and will display "DOOR". I think it is thinking that the door is open?. Please help.

Press and hold the DELAY START TIME button for +5 secs and a chime will sound. The option to toggle between SND HI and SND LO will come up, pressing Delay Start Time will change it between these options.

No programming tone

On page 11 of the manual:

Disabling the timer reminder tones:

To disable the reminder tones, press and
hold the Timer Set pad for 5 seconds. To
enable the tones, follow the same step.

To shut off all (audible) signals except for error tones and the hidden function signal:

Press and hold the Stop Time pad for5 seconds. A short tone will sound to tell you the signals have been changed. Repeat the above step to turn the signals back on.

If that doesn't work, the next thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so.

Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Microwave won't start: Model rmc275pd

If you're saying that the inside light won't come on when you opoen the door, then you probably have a bad door switch, most likely the upper one. The most common causes are opening the door while it's cooking instead of hitting the STOP pad first, broken switch mounts, and damage to or slamming the door. These switches are locally available at appliance parts companies. I have a helpful text file with critical safety information and info on diagnosing and replacing door switches. You can find it by doing a search on Yahoo.com (not Google) for microwave doorsw.txt I appreciate your rating of this answer.
