Q:

Replacing latch MMV1153AAW Maytag Maytag microwave

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the microwave.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Maytag Microwave model number.


Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your questions about your Maytag Microwave. I am so sorry to hear it has problems with the latch. I know what a time saver the microwave is and know you want to get it working again quickly. In this case, I suggest you have it tested and repaired by a qualified technician.
 
 We do not give advice on repairing microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is unplugged from the outlet. You need special equipment to work on a microwave starting with an anti-static wrist strap grounded to the microwave to even test components in it. Even minor door repairs and adjustments can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test MUST be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service.
 
 
 For these safety reasons I strongly recommend having this repair completed by a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online at www.SearsHomeServices.com or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME (1-800-469-4663). Here at SearsPartsDirect.com we love to help you with your repairs, but our expert advice is that microwaves are just too dangerous for a do-it-yourself project.

Q:

Maytag Microwave

A:

Microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as operating on 1/2 power, can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test should be performed after any microwave service. It is for these safety reasons that we are unable to guide you in microwave repairs and instead recommend scheduling service with a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME. We thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope we can help you with other questions and repairs in the future.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I am sorry, but we do not give repair information on microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. 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. That's why I strongly warn you to have this repair handled only by a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME.

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.

Q:

need wiring diagram

A:

Wiring things alone are already hard to do but can be really good to know when you ever need to do that again. A suggestion that I have for you while you wait on your response from an expert is going onto the Sears Parts Direct website and typing in your model number. Most of the time you can find wiring diagrams on there. I have attached the link below for you to view. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question.

Not having the work light on your microwave working can be inconvenient.

• I am afraid that your diagnosis is correct.

• In looking at the wiring diagram those wires do lead directly back to the control board. It actually has two settings, one relay for high brightness and one relay for low.

• If neither setting is working, it most likely is the control board.

• There is a small possibility that it could be the touch pad.

The part number for the control board is: 53001792 for about $95.00.

The part number for the touch pad is: 53001793 for about $51.00.

If this work light is important for you to use in your kitchen, you can order the parts from Sears Parts Direct .

If you can live without the light working , it would certainly be more cost effective.

If you decide to repair the microwave your self I will need to inform you of the danger of microwave servicing.

Microwaves are inherently dangerous to service. They contain high voltage internal component that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. A microwave shielding leakage test must be performed on the unit using proper testing equipment following any internal component access or repair before the microwave can safely be returned to service. These are the reasons why I recommend that you have a service technician repair this microwave failure.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

I hope this will answer you question.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
