Microwave bulb would sometimes work, sometimes not. When it doesn't, i get a "door" message on display. Often, just jiggling the microwave would turn light back on. This has increased in frequency, so that now light won't come on at all. I tried replacing the bulb - didn't seem to make difference. Bulb is fine, still reading "door", tried plugging into a different 3 prong outlet....nothing seems to help. what could it be?

Hello Amy, thank you for your question. This sounds like an issue with the door switches, which are PartSelect Number: PS2361111, PartSelect Number: PS2361113, and PartSelect Number: PS10057151. We would recommend testing these parts. Here is a link on how to test those parts. https://www.partselect.com/Microwave+test-door-switch+repair.htm I hope this helps!

Hello Colleen, thank you for your question. You may need to replace the Socket itself. Here is the part information for that piece. I hope this helps.

Replaced the light socket and bulb but still does not work. Microwave works fine. Purchased a new ceramic fuse but can't locate it in the unit.
For model number WMH31017FS0

Hi Skip, Thank you for your question. Make sure to unplug your appliance. To get to your fuse, you will have to remove your grille from above your door and you will have to unscrew and remove your control panel. There is a small metal vent on the top right hand side of your appliance, your fuse is located in there. Be very careful. If you do not release the charge from your capacitor, you may get electrocuted. You can release the charge with a screw driver with an insulated handle. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

light bult needed to be replaced
The nightmare was that this microwave is installed under the cabinet....in order to get to the light bulb I had to pull out my stove then squeeze into the space between the stove and counter....my old microwave light bult was much easier to change.....Shame on Whirlpool for making this so difficult.....must be a better way to cover the light bulb so that we do not need a screwdriver to remove the door to get to the light bulb

Microwave made very loud noise while on. No heat.
Unless you have a very comfortable background with electronics and electricity, I don't necessarily recommend taking apart a microwave. If you are very handy and are going to be VERY cautious to follow the rules of discharging caps and testing voltages before moving forward, then go for it. That said, I took the microwave off and apart. Not knowing where to find the parts, I was fortunate that the installer put the instruction book for the microwave inside the front vent slot above the touchpad for reference. it details the location of every part and it tells you very clearly what each part you test should show specific to this microwave on your multimeter. Find this guide online if you don't have it. Turn on the microwave for 20 seconds with a glass of water to make sure it's not heating - that with the noise means it's eeither the magnetron, cap, or diode. Read the notes on this site for all of the basic things to look for with the magnetron, diode, and capacitor. Once comfortable with the guide, locations of those devices, and how to test, then take it down and apart. Unfortunately, I didn't do all those things in that order, and it only wasted a lot of time trying to find the parts. Once I found the parts and put all the screws and covers back for all the areas that didn't need to be accessed for the repair, testing went quickly. The diode was bad. Ordered a new one and had it in 3 days or so. That means your microwave will be apart and sitting somewhere for a little while until you get the part and have time to repair it. Putting the diode back isn't too bad. Reassemble the microwave and put it back up again. If i had to do it again, it would take me 20 to 30 minutes once the microwave was down and on a table. Also, I used some bricks with towels over them or you could use some sawhorses to keep the microwave elevated so you can plug it in and run it after installing the new component. Again, make sure you discharge the cap before touching anything again even if you didn't run it, but just plugged it in.
