Question about Whirlpool MH2155XPS Microwave Oven

2 Answers

Whirlpool microwave Hello, this is my problem: I used the microwave yesterday in the morning and went to use it the afternoon it worked. Tried to use it about 5 minutes later and it had a funny noise coming from behind the digital clock like a humming noise. Like it was trying to heat up and quit. Everything still works except now you push the start button it humms and won't heat up. The warranty is up and just need to fix. thanks

This may have already been dealt with, but others can benefit from an accurate, thoughtful reply to this problem.

I would suspect a shorted high voltage diode or bad magnetron.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

It has a problem in the high voltage which should only be repaired by an experienced technician for safety. On some models the magnatron has a longer warranty than just one year. Will have to check your manual. High voltage parts are magnatron, capacitor, diode, and transformer. If it isn't under warranty it's almost better to buy new due to repair costs on microwaves. May be worth at least having it checked by a technician.

MV1502B over-the-range unit. worked good yesterday (sunday)morning, but stop heating in the afternoon. light, turntable and humming sound still, but no heat, placed piece of alum foil and no sparks

In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons 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.

Light bulb not on and microwave not turning on. Was working fine in the am but went to warm something in the afternoon and the light wouldn't come on and didn't warm the coffee.

Hi,
Firstly check fuses in your microwave. You will have to take off the outer casing and check on the power circuit board to see if there are blown fuses.
Best wishes,

Yesterday, I went to use the microwave and as I pushed start, I heard a loud pop and saw sparks behind the vent cover. The microwave light and turn table work fine, but it does not heat. Is it repairable?

sounds like your magnetron went out . check how old it is, sometimes the manufacture gives a 5-10 yr warrenty on part if no warranty on unit then it may not be worth fixing depending on how much u spent on it. part roughly 89.99-139.99 labor 85-165.00 depending on who u use and were u live. hope this helps . thanx..

You may be right.

The hood fan should always be on whenever you're cooking on the stovetop.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

Replacing the keypad is generally not too hard do-it-yourself job.
