Question:

My microwave turns on but will not heat. I switched power setting to 90% and it warmed up some water but it i had to run it for four minutes. I took out the filters and they look good. I removed the unit from above the range. I am going to run it to see if the exhaust flue opens. I wont have time today but i will get to it tomorrow. The unit is two years old. I would like to avoid buying a new one and extended coverage is almost as much as a new unit. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Rey.

Answer:

Hi Rey Thank you for your question. There are a couple of parts you could check. I would suggest checking your door micro switches, your fuse, and your diode. I hope that helps. You should be able to test all three of those parts with a multi meter to see if they are working correctly. Good luck with your repair.

Richard for model number WMH1163XVS0
December 28, 2017
Answer:

Hi Richard, Thank you for your question. Before you begin any repair please unplug the appliance from the electrical outlet. Use a Phillips head screw driver to unthread the screws securing the grill. With the screws removed, open the microwave oven door then the slide the grill to the left and lift it up to remove. This will allow you to access the filter so you can either replace it or clean it. When you are done, insert the tabs of the grill into the frame and slide it to the right. Shut the oven door and then secure the grill with the screws. Restore power to the microwave. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

When we place something inside to reheat and push the start button it wont turn on. The message "open and close door" displays. After many attempts it would turn on but after a couple weeks it got worse, but now it only beeps and the display is filled with lights. The unit was unplugged to stop the beeping.

Chuck for model number MMV4205DH
February 26, 2018
Answer:

Hello Chuck thank you for your question. I would recommend replacing the door switches for your unit. There are three of them that should be replaced at the same time. Door Switch - 3 Terminal PartSelect Number: PS10057151, Door Switch PartSelect Number: PS2361111 and Door Switch PartSelect Number: PS2361113. If even one of these switches is not functioning properly the unit is not recognizing that the door is shut to allow the unit to run. I hope this helps!

Mounting brackets are fragile and plastic support is easily broken
Replaced the intake grille. The grille should be removed prior to cleaning. The entire part is plastic and easily broken so that the two tabs for the mounting screws are shattered and will not hold the part in place. If one attempts to clean the grille using only a moderate amount of pressure with a cloth the fragile plastic will break. The part is poorly designed. When the vent is removed to replace the charcoal filter, one may discover that the grille has already been broken in a previous cleaning operation.

Replacing charcoal filters
Remove two screws from Vent Grille, one on either side, and remove one screw inside Vent Grille on right side. Pull Vent Grille off exposing the two Charcoal filters. Remove the two Charcoal filters by hand and replace with new ones. Reinstall the Vent Grille and tighten screws. That's it. I'm not handy (ask my wife) and if I can do it so can you.
