Question about Whirlpool MH1150XMQ Microwave Oven
We just purchased a house with this microwave. The model MH 1150XMB and it seems great but there is a problem with the light. I tried turning it on and it has worked once. It makes noise from pushing the button but the light does not come on. I thought it maybe needed a new bulb but then when I used the microwave after taking out my food when I closed the door the light turned on. Is there something that could just be loose how should I go about trying to fix this?
This may have already been dealt with, but others can benefit from an accurate, thoughtful reply to this problem.
We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.
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.

Check to be sure the bulb is screwed in tightly, if that is ok then there are screws holding the bottom panel of the microwave on that would have to bwe removed to check the wires going to the bulb receptacle.
