Question about Maytag MMV5000 Microwave Oven
Seems to work when it decides to. Unit is 8 years old with soft membrane keypad. Sometimes it works correctly every tiem and other times it might take 5 minutes of trying to get the cancel to work and then start over.
The keypad has failed, and that's usually economical for a do-it-yourselfer.
It would need a new "control assembly switch/mem (wht)" which is otherwise known as the control panel frame assembly with membrane keypad.

It's reference number 1 on diagram 2, the control panel.
Ironically, the white version runs about $160 but you can save about $55 by ordering the bisque or stainless steel version.

You have a stuck button on the keypad. With the cost to replace the part I would replace the microwave. Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.
