Question about Whirlpool RMC275PD Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Whirlpool RM988PYVW microwave oven

When you set the heat time and hit start button the light and fan come on for a second and then everything shuts off and 4 8's are displayed. You can initially set the clock but you have to reset it after it shuts down. I have turned the power off for several minutes and powered back up but it still has the problem. I have checked the bottom door switch and it turns the light on and off. I can hear the top door switch click but I do not know if it is working when I shut the door. Any help would be greatly appreciated. We use this microwave a great deal.

    I checked all the door switches with an ohm meter and they are working. When I put it back together I get an A-1 alarm and nothing works now including the stove top range.

    I did remove a small belt from the fan area. I suspect that was the original problem but now I have the A-1 problem to deal with. Any ideas about the alarm?

Wonder what that belt was? This model doesn't seem to use a blet of any kind. This may be a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.

Magic chef MCD1611ST microwave, the display lights up, the time and powerlevel can be set, the light works when the door is open but when i hit start everything shuts off. Any suggestions?

There are a lot of possible causes, but I'd look at the door switches first, and the wiring connectors to them. Make sure the contacts on all the switches are opening and closing.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/david_29ad5d1dd86564b0

GE microwave won't turn off

Just checked the GE website. Had the same problem with my 5 year old microwave. GE website says to close and open the door quickly three times. First time I did this it didn't work. Second time I closed the door with some significant force and reopened it more quickly. Worked. Unplugged the microwave, plugged it back in, still fine.

No power to GE Spacemaker Microwave

I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?

Microwave won't heat food.

My Whirlpool microwave, over the stove, stopped working when my son used it to heat his food and a heavy sound came out, like something exploded in it. When I check it, there was nothing broke. Everything works fine except that it does not heat. I will appreciate any help
