Whirlpool Microwave/oven comnbination problem
I have a whirlpool microwave built in with an oven. The microwave will not start when start is pressed. It clicks off and the display loses the clock setting. every thing else seems to function normally including the minute timer and the clock(after i reset it) The microwave wont come on reliably. sometimes it will work for one try but usually shuts itself off before the timed interval is up.
So is there a repair?
Does the entire unit (microwave and oven) have to be replaced. I assume so since the oven controls are built in to the microwave panel...
Model RM286PXV3 built in 1992

1992, it has served you well.Time to let it go. By the time you pay a qualified service tech to come out and diagnosis it and repair it (if parts are even available} you will have a lot of money tied up it in. Probably best to put that to wards a new over the range micro and new range.
