You must be observant and determine when the fuse is blowing. Clues are needed to solve problems.

SOURCE: Whirlpool microwave/oven model RM286PXV3

I have a 13yr old above-range oven which quit when my wife cooked food in an aluminized foil wrapper (a small fire ensued!). This oven has 3 thermal protection units, on the magnetron, the chassis and on top of the food cavity. This last one had failed open, and since it's in series with the magnetron thermal protection unit and the main relay, nothing would work. MAT electronics sell the units for less than $4, but my problem now is to pick one with the appropriate temperature cut-off. They range from 200 to 300F.

SOURCE: Kenmore Micro/Oven fuse keeps blowing

Disconnect the connector to the primary winding of the high voltage transformer. Put a new fuse . If the fuse is not blowing the problem may be in the secondary side of the high voltage transformer. Chek the highvoltage diode, capacitor, magnetron respectively. you can also check the primary winding of the low voltage transformer.

I have a whirlpool microwave model WMH31017AS1 it turns on but heat up is there anything i can do


All microwaves have a door open switch that keeps the magnetron from producing microwaves; this could be your problem. Most microwaves have a fuse hidden in the wiring that blows on overload like a lot of food spatter inside. They also have thermal overloads which may or may not self reset. If it died with a big flash you may be out of luck, if not you may be able to locate the fuse or thermal limit and replace it. Another sneaky part is a one time combination temperature and current overload called a thermal fuse:

Self resetting thermal overloads look like this Amazon # B00DM8JGQQ which is a Whirlpool part:

I didn't find a wiring diagram on line for your model, but you may be able to find one; whirlpool generally is pretty good with documentation. Most microwave manufacturers keep consumers as far from doing their own repairs due to the possible dangers involved.
Appliance Parts Store has a pretty good selection of replacement parts

Whirlpool Electric combination Microwave and Oven -- when I try to turn on the microwave the words "door" comes on screen and unit does not start. The door does latch but still does not start....


I could have been more specific with a model number, but if this general answer doesn't do the trick, feel free to contact me with your full model and specific symptoms here.

It's usually a bad door switch or door switch mount. My helpful text file on door switches is here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If it's one of those overdesigned Whirlpools, it can be one of many components. See the example photo at the bottom of this reply.

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs


My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.
