1994 Whirlpool Microwave Mod MH7115XBQ-2

This is my mom's microwave, working fine for 13 years, today it has no power. There is power to the outlet, but nothing on the display. Can anyone tell me if there is a fuse to check, or perhaps secondary transformer voltage? I guess she's lucky for a microwave to run trouble-free for this long, hopefully longer if there is a possible easy fix (or something easy to check before we put the microwave on the curb). Thanks all, Matt

    I have the same model microwave, mh7115xbq-2, and sometimes it has power and other times it automatically on its own, it puts the exhaust fan on and the night light on. I don't know what the problem is, it goes from having no power to all the lights on the display blinking, I don't know if it's a short in the microwave or a problem with my electricity. Please helf

There is a high voltage fuse in the unit attatched to the high voltage capacitor, it is the most common problem for microwaves not working. Also check the protective diode,the high voltage capacitor as well as the transformer if the fuse is ok. Good Luck.

Installed in 2/29/02, The unit stopped working today. Totally dead. I checked the plug (fine), checked the circuit, fine, and power to house is fine.


2 simple things to check: Inside there is a fuse (15 A) check it. Check that the TCOs (thermal cut outs) are closed ie zero resistance across them.

Outlet works but the microwave is dead, no power at all.


I had a similar problem with my Whirlpool microwave. I replaced a fuse (after reading posts in this forum) and it's working again.  I'm not sure how similar your model is, but in my case it was an in-line fuse in a wire leading down from the main fuse in the upper right corner behind the control panel.

Microwave Buzzing When Not in Use


Are you using a 3 pronged outlet and is it grounded? If you have a 2 holed outlet and are using a ground eliminator adapter, try turning the plug around to reverse the polarity. If this helps, then it would be advisable to have an electrician to ground your oven.

My Whirlpool MH3184xps is shooting a spark when in use with the rack. When the rack is removed the oven works fine. I am guessing that some of the coating on the rack has cracked and peeled and is exposing some aluminum. Has anyone else had this problem?

Microwave dead


First, there is an outlet. Plug in something else. Inside the key panel, there are fuses and a thermo sensor. Either may be bad. The thermosensor is about the diameter of a dime, black and 3/8 inch thick...attached to the wall of the chamber. All should have continuity.
