Maytag Microwave Troubleshooting
If you're looking for help fixing your Maytag Microwave, look no further! Our comprehensive Maytag Microwave Troubleshooting guide will explain common issues, provide tips, and show you how to read your model's error codes.
Troubleshooting a Maytag Microwave that Won't Turn on
If your microwave will not turn on, there are a couple of things that you can do to troubleshoot. Below are the steps you can follow to solve your microwave issue.
Check the power
Check to see if the microwave is heating
Check the door
Check for error or display codes
Checking the Power
Verify the power cord is connected to a grounded, operational outlet.
Check the outlet. If you are unaware if it's working, plug in a household lamp or other small appliance to verify that the outlet is working.
Check to see if a household circuit breaker has tripped or if the household fuse has been blown. If the problem continues, call an electrician.
Check to See if the Microwave is Heating
To test if the microwave is heating:
Place one cup (250 mL) of water on the microwave turntable
Start the microwave oven for 1 minute on the HI setting (100% Power)
If the water is warm the microwave is heating.
Check the Door
The microwave will not start or function correctly if the door is not properly closed all the way.
Check to make sure there is nothing blocking or preventing the door from closing all the way.
If this is the first use, ensure that the shipping spacer (on some models) is removed from the inside of the door. Remove all packaging material and firmly close the door.
Check for Error or Display Codes
If your microwave has an error code displayed, see below for additional information.
"LOC" or "L" : Indicates the control lock is on or enabled.
Demo Mode: The Demo Mode is ideal for learning how to use the microwave oven. When set, functions can be entered without actually turning on the magnetron. The microwave oven light will come on, the fan will run and, if on, the turntable will rotate.

Maytag Microwave difficulty
The microwave does everything I need and want it to do perfectly. It has never needed to be repaired or replaced in five years. We bought it on sale from Best Buy and consider it one of the best bargains we have ever made. Easy to operate, easy to clean, sleek and, for an appliance, quite personable. I find it refreshing to say something nice about an inanimate object.
I have enjoyed my microwave and it has lasted 10 years so far. The only problem I have had is the handle coming off but I clip it back on. Also I changed the bulb. The microwave is over the stove and matched the rest of my appliances. Basically, I would recommend Maytag for any appliances that a person would need to buy.
It’s a nice look to your kitchen first, and an easy clean. Works great for heating up stuff in a hurry and makes popcorn perfect on the popcorn button. Does ok at melting things. I have been happy with mine for 3 yrs so far.
It has all the features we like and use every day. Timer, lights, fan, built-in Above stove, use minutes or preprogrammed Turntable, quiet, white in color, easy cleaning. Easy to replace filter and light.
It's mounted above the stove, ten years old and still looks & operates like brand new. Have never had a problem with it and it's used almost daily. From heating up food to making dinner & popcorn. This is the longest lasting microwave I've ever purchased. Maytag made a great product.
