Question and Answers

Q:

need wiring diagram

A:

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.

Q:

Maytag Microwave

A:

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.
