Hi,

if it does not power up, then it means its having a power problem. it might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This unit must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the unit turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter in order to test the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.......

Regards.

The main fuse is blown, "ceramic type" usually caused by a defective door switch.

There are three things that will cause this, the magnetron "common problem" or the high voltage capacitor or diode. The above mentioned work together to heat the food and depending on the nature of the repair, parts and labor can approach the price of a new unit.

It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

The keypad controller has probably developed a short in the membrane of the keypad, it must be replaced in order to get it up and running, but I suggest a maytag repairman to address this.

Magnetron used with no load.

It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it. Using the microwave with nowhere for the energy to go results in magnetron meltdown!
Contact an appliance repair service for a repair.

Our microwave in office won't shut off. It continues to heat and fan is running as soon as we close the door. Tried everything, unplugged, canceled everything. Please let me know what to do.

Load test.

A simple safety test.
Place 1/2 litre of water in a glass container. Measure the temperature of the water.
Place in microwave and heat on full power for 1minute.
Measure the temperature after it has stood for 1minute.
If the temperature difference is more than 9 degrees Celcuis the magnetron is working and producing about 700Watts of heat.
If your microwave is labelled with 900 or 1000Watts. That is about right.
If the temperature is less then the magnetron is not working properly and may need replacing.


This a only a rough guide and any doubts you should consult an authorised service agent.
