First of all, it's under warranty. So I would contact Maytag for a free fix.

See http://maytag.com/support/service_parts.jsp

For an out of warranty reply:

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

First, is the internal cooling fan running when you cook?

The cooling fan (not to be confused with the hood / exhaust / vent fan) is critical to keeping the magnetron from overheating.

The magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

This can be due to a failed cooling fan or a failing magnetron.

One way to test this is to place a cup of water inside and cook on the lowest power setting for 2 minutes and see if it makes it all the way through.

Then try it again on full power.

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

We even have a video on our site that shows you how to safely & easily remove the control panel assembly in less than 5 minutes so you can check out your oven.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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

Okay, that loud humming sound you are hearing is coming from the unit trying to energize the magnetron. Depending on how old your oven is, it could be still under warranty (this is covered under the warranty, trust me). If it is an older oven, like 2 years or more, you can bring it to an appliance repair facility and instruct them to replace the magnetron.

I am telling you to take it to a facility because you as a consumer cannot buy a magnetron...the federal government will not allow appliance companies to sell them to you.

I would suspect the power control board which is item #2 on the diagram.

My Maytag microwave stopped heating. Everything


Generally the magnetron (the part that heats the food) is the cause if everything else still works. Unfortunately replacing the magnetron is barely cheaper than buying a new microwave though you can check out repairclinic.com to decide whether you want to attempt replacing the part.

Let me know how this works out for you.

No power at display!


You've probably destroyed your magnetron, and the magnetron thermostat.

This kind of abuse will not be covered under warranty.

It will likely run about $75 for a technician to visit the home, $75 to do the work, $75-90 for the magnetron, and about $15 for the thermostat.

The emerson microwave suddenly stops working,no power supply.


Two microwaves, 3 service companies and 6 service calls later, I think I have the answer. My unit is a MMV1153BAB but I'll bet the problem runs throughout the Maytag line. The units are ship from the factory set up to vent to the interior. If your want to vent outside, the fan in the right, rear, upper coner needs to be repositioned. Tell the service tech to go to servicematters,com and follow the link for technicians and find service pointer K8178715 issued in 2007. My unit has now run 20+ minutes with no problem and no moisture buildup.
