Whirlpool MH3184XP-B 2 Black- Will not start, no power, no display

The microwave is about a year and a half old, and just stopped working out of nowhere. We werent using it, but just noticed the time was missing. Its not the outlet, check the breakers, and pluged a light into the outlet and all was well. SO i pluged the microwave into 3 different outlets, and NOTHING. I replaced the fuse in the upper right coner of the microwave under the panel (not the control panel), and still nothing. Please help, and sugestions would be great or things to look for, pics would be awsome if there is a link. thanks.

    We also bought a wirlpool microwave about 11/2 years ago and our microwave did the same thing. It went on the blink. We checked the breakers, put a new fuse in the right hand corner of the microve, and still nothing. We also did not recieve any wiring diagram when we bought it.

    Checked breaker, power is good. Checked fuse inside unit in upper right corner, it's good. Neutral inside unit is fed through a high limit switch, it's good. Checked and had 120 volts between the bottom of the fuse (hot) and the secondary side of the high limit (neutral) and had 120 volts. I do not have a wiring diagram so I cannot troubleshoot further. Any suggestion?

    I have the MH-3184XPB-0. No power even after checking another outlet sources, changed the 250v fuse above the control panel and is still completely dead. Should I buy another microwave or is there still a fix out there?

    I have the MH3184XPB-0. Changed the fuse over the control panel and still completely dead. No switch tripped at circuit breaker and another outlet was verified as ok. Should I just buy another microwave or is there still a fix out there?

Downstream of the main 20 amp breaker in the upper right hand corner, is a miniture 4 amp fuse in an inline fuseholder. I replaced this and so far, so good

I have the same problem. A repairman came to look at it and said it was the dc filter. He would not fix it, however, and sugested I replace the unit. I will not buy any whirlpool product after reading how many people also have the same type of problem. Hope this helps.

Microwave stopped heating

I had the same oven for one and a half years and had the same problem. Had the sears repairman come out and he said the magnetron burned out and needed replacing for $285. It was never under warranty with the warranty that came with oven. I couldn't believe it! We had an independent repairman look at it and he found a design flaw that causes the magnetron to blow. If you replace the matnetron (megnatron?) it will work for awhile, maybe, but then just need to be replaced again. It's cheaper to buy a new microwave. In fact, I got out our old microwave that's over 20 yrs. old and still works--just isn't as fast and as new ovens. Good luck!

Same thing happened to us. We just came back from Sears, where we bought another. Just for giggles, my wife suggested unplugging the old one and plugging it back in again. It works now. New one's going back to the store.

Humming sound when off

I also have the same microwave model and with the same problem. It is not quite 2 years old. I have a service call scheduled but did e-mail customer service at Whirlpool to inform them of this. Sounds like it could be defective model and a fire hazard. You should also inform them of yours.
