Question and Answers

Q:

Whirlpool microwave touch screen errors

A:

I am sorry you are experiencing difficulties with your Microwave.  Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. Door repairs and adjustments, even minor ones, can cause microwave leakage and a microwave shielding leakage test must be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service. I strongly suggest that you have this repair handled only by a qualified service technician. I have provided a link to Sears Home Services (click here) if you decide to schedule service. If you think it may be cost effective to just replace the unit, I have also provided a link to the microwave section of Sears.com (click here) to price out what a replacement would cost.

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com and allowing us to help you.

Try unplugging the micro-wave for a couple of minutes and see if that helps. Sometime this will clear an electrical glitch in the appliance. I am sorry, but we do not give repair information on micro-wave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Micro-waves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the micro-wave is completely unplugged. Door repairs and adjustments, even minor ones, can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test must be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service. That's why I strongly warn you to have this repair handled only by a qualified service technician. The averge life expectancy of a micro-wave is nine years. If your unit is getting close to that age, sometimes it can be more cost effective to replace rather than repair this type of appliance. Click here to view what is avalable at Sears.com.

You can have it- repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Click here to schedule service at the Sears Home Services website. A 10% discount coupon is available when service is set online.


Normally at ManageMyLife.com we like to help you with all of your repairs, but our expert advice is that microwaves are just too dangerous.
