Whirlpool Microwave / Oven. It is showing 'DOOR' when I press Start.

  1. Clean the door sensors: If your microwave is showing "DOOR" when you press start, it's possible that the door sensors are dirty or obstructed.Try cleaning them with a soft cloth or cotton swab23.
  2. Replace the door switches: If cleaning the door sensors doesn't work, it's possible that one or more of the door switches are faulty and need to be replaced. You can follow this video tutorial to replace the door switches yourself3.
If none of these steps work, it's best to contact a professional or the manufacturer's service center for further assistance. I hope this helps!

Whirlpool AKP 745 NB - just blink

It sounds like you are experiencing an issue with your Whirlpool AKP 745 NB oven. The fact that the oven is only blinking with an "auto" text suggests that there may be an issue with the electronic control panel. A possible solution is to reset the oven by unplugging it from the power source for a few minutes, then plugging it back in. This can help to clear any temporary issues with the electronic control panel. If the problem persists, you may want to check the user manual for any specific troubleshooting steps or contact the manufacturer for assistance. Another possible solution to try is to reset the oven by pressing a certain combination of buttons on the control panel, as the manual suggests. If the problem still exists, it is advisable to contact the manufacturer or a professional technician for repair. It's important to note that, electronic control issues can be caused by various problems, so it is best to refer to the user manual or contact the manufacturer for more specific troubleshooting steps and to get a more detailed diagnosis of the problem.

How do i get to the fuse on a Whirlpool microwave MH1170XSS

A bad fuse is one of the most common problems on microwaves, including Whirlpool ovens. Most modern microwaves use the same style of fuse which you can find at most appliance and electronics stores. The difficulty of replacing the fuse in a Whirlpool microwave can vary depending on whether you are working on a countertop microwave or a built-in. Knowing where to start can make the process much easier for either style of microwave. Countertop Microwaves Step 1 Unplug the microwave and let it sit for a few minutes before beginning repairs. Bring it to a clear area with enough room to work. Leave enough room to have access to it on all sides. Step 2 Remove the Phillips screws from the outer shell of the microwave. The screws are located along the lower sides and around the edges of the back. Put the screws into a bucket or bowl to keep them together. Pull the shell away from the microwave, and set it to the side. Step 3 Look for the fuse inside the exposed controls of the microwave. The fuse is located in a small receptacle with two wires running to it. Use a flat screwdriver to pry up from the bottom of the fuse. The fuse will pop out. Replace the fuse with a new one. Built-in Microwaves Step 1 Unplug the microwave, and let it sit for a few minutes before beginning repairs. Step 2 Open the microwave door, and look for two Phillips screws along the left side of the control panel. Remove these screws. Lift up on the control panel, and tilt it outward. The control panel will rest on its hinges. Step 3 Find the fuse receptacle within the control area. Is is usually located to the left or center of the cavity. You will see two wires that go to either end of a small, plastic receptacle. Use a flat screwdriver to pry up on the bottom of the fuse. The fuse will pop out. Replace the fuse with a new one.

Timer runs fast, plus no heat Maytag MMV1153BAW

No... you are not in a microwave induced time warp...
Your microwave oven needs a "reboot". The same thing happened to me.
Unplug your microwave oven, wait about a minute (more or less), plug it back in. Try setting/running your kitchen timer, boil water, etc. Your timer software on the microwave should be reset.

Can I replace the door seal on my Whirlpool Integrated Microwave?

Gaskets are available, but with all microwave repairs, I would recommend using a repair technician unless you are confident of doing it properly. The door should be checked after all repairs for microwave leakage. https://www.repairclinic.com/Shop-For-Parts/a6b5c21/Whirlpool-Microwave-Gasket-Seal-Parts https://www.google.com/search?q=whirlpool+amw505ix+microwave+door+seal+replacement ..

Error code F2.Q1

Not sure what you mean by "Q1 Touch FMEA" above, but F2 error code indicates a bad keypad or sometimes a bad sensor.

Since it's brand new I would first consult the manual. If you don't have it still, you can download it from the owner center here: http://whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp

If you still have trouble, since it's new, it should obviously be under warranty, so I'd contact them (same page as shown above) to get it repaired under warranty.


We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Suggestions for how to fix turntable on my microwave (whirlpool WMH3219HZ-5)? I replaced the turntable motor and that didn't fix it.

You have a loose or disconnected wire somewhere. With a test meter, follow the wiring back from the motor. Also test the motor with a power supply to make sure the new one isn't DOA..
