    magnetron seems to have gone out. It started to be noisy when cooking and got worse. Now it won't cook, when I opened the unit, the magnetron is making a lot of noise not the transformer

    Same thing. Never had a problem and all of a sudden......NOTHING. Outlet where its plugged is fine. Will try your suggestion of replacing fuse if I can figure out how to get to it. Thanks. Will let you know.

    I will NEVER buy another Maytag item. I have this microwave too. This same problem has happened to me TWICE. Maytag is not good to work with. I now am looking to purchase another microwave.

    I checked to make sure the breaker didn't trip and the outlet was still hot. Is there an internal fuse or something I can check?

It could easily be a bad line fuse and/or line filter. To access you will need to unplug the unit and remove the outside case. Inside the unit, where the A/C power cord comes in, there should be a small circuit card (part #237068) located somewhere with a fuse mounted on it. This is your input line filter board with line fuse. Replace the fuse, first and see if this fixes your problem. This is a 20amp appliance fuse that you can purchase at any hardware store. Make sure you place the cover back on the unit BEFORE you plug it in. It is not safe to have this area of the microwave exposed with power applied. High potentials in the 4,000 volt range are present! If the fuse does not correct your problem, the circuit card runs about $26.00. Good luck and hope this fixes your problem.

    In fact...Home Depot carries the fuses for this appliance in the Electrical and Lighting area.

Mmv5165bas vent fan will not stop running


Check to see if there's a relay providing power to the fan. If there is, the contacts might be sticking in the closed position. Assuming that this is an over-the-range unit, disconnecting the vent fan completely might not be a good idea as heat/steam from foods cooking on the range would more likely damage the microwave.

In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Stopped working during microwave function


First unplug the unit.
The problem is most likely caused by the thermistor (thermal resistor) failing. This device is located at the outlet vent and will cut power if the unit over heat or catch fire. All microwaves have it. You can test it with an ohm meter. You can get a new one from an electronics store like Radio Shack.
You will have to remove the cover to get to it.
This unit may also have a fuse inside, I do not know if this is the one you changed, but you can look at it. You didn't give a model number so I could not point you to a diagram.
