Maytag MMV1153AAW microwave

Microwave "popped" when heating coffee. It will appear to be working, but nothing heats up. Lights and turntable work. Is this something I should attempt to fix or should I trash it and get a new one. It's less than 2 years old. Thanks

    According to the booklet that came with the oven, if the problem's with the magnetron or touch pad, it's covered for 5 years. I called Sears repair, they came out, said it was the magnetron. They had to order a part and are installing it tomorrow. I only had to pay the $49 service call. Thanks for the suggestion about the diode. If it happens again, we'll try that.

I have the same problem with mine!!! I spent 58 dollars to have a 6 dollar diode replaced. Now 8 months later... same prob. Replaced again myself and working fine again. Just make sure you label the wires while working on it. I didn't and it cost me 2 new fuses! Hope this helps.

My spacemaker 2.0 pvm2070dmww microwave is not heating and the turntable is not turning everything else is working fine.


The problem is more than likely a bad door switch, a digital meter is the best option for testing to find the defective one. If you have one post back for instructions or have serviceman repair it.

Electrical short /pop sound & now it doesn't heat. Everything else works. Any idea what went out.


The signs are not always evident, but from the description the magnetron has failed.

Less than 5 years old - Microwave Panel lights up, turntable turns, fan works - everything works except it doesn't heat food. Heard a pop, and now it runs louder than before but doesn't heat. Any ideas?


That pop was the magnetron frying. This is a repairable problem, but feirly expensive, around $300 if you have it done by a professional.

Please rate my response if it was helpful to you.

Thanks, Repairman45.

Microwave popped and now does not heat


Okay, first we need to separate the situations. You were boiling water on the stove and had the range hood fan running to **** up the steam. Then you put something in the microwave to heat and you heard a pop and then zip-o.

The water on the stove has nothing to do with the situation, the fan you turn on is not part of the microwave, so it has nothing to do with the microwave.

The pop you heard and then the humming suggests the magnetron failed. You said you found a blow fuse and replaced it and still nothing, right? The magnetron is the most likely culprit...I would think it is safe to say that the magnetron shorted and drew enough current to blow the fuse.

Replace the magnetron and if that doesn't work, let me know here. Good Luck!

Turntable, lights and fan inop


I'm guessing that nothing is working...is that right? If so, first guess is the breaker or an internal fuse. Nearly all units have them. You don't say what fuse you checked. Unplug the unit, remove the bulb and see what is in the socket. Next, open the breaker and then turn it back on. This will reset it. Something caused this.
