Whirlpool Microwave Model MH7130XEZ-2

We have a Whirlpool above stove microwave model number MH7130XEZ-2. It lights up, clock works, the tray inside will turn, but for some reason it will not heat. What might this problem be and can I fix this, and how do I do it? Thanks!

    Have a Whirlpool model no. CFMT148G1W2 under the counter unit. All seems fine, including the noise made by the magnetron, but no heat is generated.

    Door switches, connections, etc check out OK. I read somewhere that a diode may be responsible for the failure. Could someone please explain how this diode can cause the unit to perform? Also, how can I test a bad diode using a digital multimeter that only has Voltage and resistance? Is it possible, or do I need a different multimeter?



    Thanks in advance.

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

 

At our site, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information.

Have a Whirlpool over-stove microwave. Can set time but then it scrolls between AM & PM. Cannot find how to set the AM/PM portion, and completing the time set.


Which microwave model do you have? Most of the Whirlpool microwaves that I know only have a 12-hour clock. They do not indicate AM or PM. To set the ones that I know, press Clock. Type in the current time in a 12-hour format. Press Clock again. The only model that I find quickly that has an AM/PM option is the GH7208XR. On that model, start with the main menu displayed on the LCD screen. Touch Settings and Info. Next press Clock. Then press Adjust Time. Follow the instructions to set the time and the AM/PM setting. I'll assume you use the +/- buttons. To hide the clock, get to the Clock Screen. Press Adjust Time and Hide Clock to return to the main menu. See these two pages of the manual for this model: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/190817/Whirlpool-Gh7208xr.html?page=9#manual and https://www.manualslib.com/manual/190817/Whirlpool-Gh7208xr.html?page=12#manual

Current Whirlpool over-the-range models sold in the US are listed here: https://www.whirlpool.com/kitchen/cooking/microwaves/over-the-range.html . Other Whirlpool appliance manuals are available from the Owner Support page: https://www.whirlpool.com/services/manuals.html.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number for a more accurate information on setting the clock. The model number should be inside the microwave on the rim. Usually it's on the bottom of the door frame near the door hinge.

Whirlpool microwave model #MH1140XMQ-1. I needed to change the light bulb on the bottom of the microwave that shines on the stove below. I started to turn the light bulb and the bulb seperated from the...


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Or if you prefer, you can order a new control circuit board for it here for $140.10 plus shipping. (Just enter the model number as MH1140XMQ-1 without the dash).

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or no bright, too. Sometimes this will similarly affect the exhaust fan operation or inside light, too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Our Danby DMW162-ORT doesn't heat up food. The digital numbers, inside light, clock and turning tray are all working.The fan is working but no heat. It's also making a whining/grinding sound that wasn't...


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food. The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing. There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

Power out on Whirlpool over-the-stove microwave


Yes, There are fuses inside the keyboard panel. I would have to take a look at the manual for the specific model you have to identify the easiest way to check the fuse.
Before you go that far check above the hood and see if you can locate the plug end of the microwave. Most installations have a dedicated receptacle above the exhaust vent and microwave. It is usually a space too small for good storage so most housewives store small items and cookbooks in this space. It is usually the culprit for a microwave suddenly going out without someone placing metal inside the oven and heating it.
Heating a metal object or operating a microwave for an extended time will usually blow the fuse.

Door


The door part# is 4359542 if you need the part number. If you need to know how to replace the door check up by the upper hinge on the inside of the door should be a plastic piece that you can remove so if you lift the door off of its hinges. You may or may not need to remove the grill above the door to raise the door high enough
