WARNING
Precautions to be observed before and during
servicing to avoid possible exposure to excessive
microwave energy, or electrical shock disconnect
power to oven.
WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, injury, or death, make
sure these earthing instructions are followed.
Earthing Instructions
(A) Do not operate or allow oven to be operated with
door open.
(B) Make the following safety checks on all ovens to
be serviced before activating the magnetron or
other microwave source, and make repairs as
necessary:
• Interlock operation
• Proper door closing
• Seal and sealing surfaces (arcing, wear, and
other damage)
• Damage to or loosening of hinges and latches
• Evidence of dropping or abuse
(C) Before turning on microwave power for any
service test or inspection within the microwave
generating compartments, check the magnetron,
waveguide or transmission line, and cavity for
proper alignment, integrity, and connections.
(D) Any defective or misadjusted components in the
interlock, monitor, door seal, and microwave
generation and transmission systems shall be
repaired, replaced or adjusted by procedures
described in this manual before oven is released
to the consumer.
(E) Check microwave leakage to verify compliance
with the federal performance standard should be
performed on each oven prior to release to the
consumer.
!
WARNING
Do not remove earthing prong when installing earthed
appliance in a home or business that does not have
three wire earthing receptacle, under no condition is
earthing prong to be cut off or removed. It is the
personal responsibility of the consumer to contact a
qualified electrician and have properly earthed three
prong wall receptacle installed in accordance with
appropriate electrical codes
Should a two prong adapter plug be required
temporarily, it is the personal responsibility of the
consumer to have it replaced with properly earthed three
prong receptacle or the two prong adapter properly
earthed by a qualified electrician in accordance with
appropriate electrical codes.
Servicing of Earthed Products
The standard accepted color coding for earthing wires is
GREEN or GREEN WITH YELLOW STRIPE. These
earth leads are NOT to be used as current carrying
conductors. It is extremely important that the technician
replace any and all earths prior to completion of the
service call. Under no condition should earth wire be left
off causing a potential hazard to technicians and
consumer.
Wiring
Good service practice is to never route wiring over
terminals and/or sharp edges. This applies to any
wiring without regard to the circuit voltage. Wire
insulation material and thickness is designed and
regulated for electrical spacing purpose only, but
cannot always be relied upon because of possible cuts
and/or abrasions, which can occur during servicing.

Important Safety Information
!
CAUTION
Read the following information to avoid possible
exposure to microwave radiation:
The basic design of the Amana or Menumaster
microwave ovens make it an inherently safe device to
both user and servicer. However, there are some
precautions which should be followed when servicing
the microwave oven to maintain this safety. These are
as follows:
1. Always operate the unit from an adequately earthed
outlet. Do not operate on a two-wire extension cord.
2. Before servicing the unit (if unit is operable), perform
the microwave leakage test.
3. The oven should never be operated if the door does
not fit properly against the seal, the hinges or hinge
bearings are damaged or broken; the choke is
damaged, (pieces missing, etc.); or any other visible
damage can be noted. Check the choke area to
ensure that this area is clean and free of all foreign
matter.
4. If the oven operates with the door open and
produces microwave energy, take the following
steps.
A. Tell the user not to operate the oven.
B. Contact Maytag immediately.
5. Always have the oven disconnected when the outer
case is removed except when making the "live" tests
called for in this Service Manual. Do not reach into
the equipment area while the unit is energized.
Make all connections for the test and check them for
tightness before plugging the cord into the outlet.
6. Always earth the capacitors on the magnetron filter
box and H. V. Capacitor with an insulated-handle
screwdriver before working in the high voltage area
of the equipment compartment. Some types of
failures will leave a charge in these capacitors and
the discharge could cause a reflex action which
could make you injure yourself.
8
7. In the area of the transformer, capacitor, diode, and
magnetron there is HIGH VOLTAGE. When the unit is
operating, keep this area clean and free of anything
which could possibly cause an arc or earthing, etc.
8. Do not for any reason defeat the interlock switches.
There is no valid reason for this action at any time;
nor will it be condoned by Maytag.
9. IMPORTANT: Before returning a microwave to a
customer, check for proper switch interlock action.
The primary and secondary switches MUST open
when the door is actuated. The monitor switch
MUST close at a 1/4" when the door is opened.
10.Before returning a microwave to a customer, verify
the door spacing is reasonably uniform along the
top, bottom, and sides, and that it measures 1/8" or
less.
11. The microwave oven should never be operated with:
• Any components removed and/or bypassed.
• Any of the safety interlocks found to be
defective.
• Any of the seal surfaces defective, missing,
or damaged.
12.To ensure that the unit does not emit excessive
microwave leakage and to meet the Department of
Health Human Service guidelines, check the oven
for microwave leakage using Narda Model 8100,
8200, Holaday HI1500, HI1501 or Simpson 380M
leakage monitor as outlined in the instructions. The
maximum leakage level allowed is 4 mW/cm2.
13.If servicer encounters an emission reading over
4 mw/cm2 the servicer is to cease repair and contact
the Maytag Service Department immediately for
further direction. Maytag will contact the proper
Government Agency upon verification of the test
results.

General Information
Placement of the Oven
Do not install microwave next to or above source of
heat, such as a deep fat fryer. This could cause the
microwave to operate improperly and could shorten the
life of electrical components.
Install microwave on a level countertop surface.
Do not block or obstruct oven filter. Allow access for
cleaning.
All air vents must be kept clear during cooking. If air
vents are covered during operation the oven may
overheat. In this case, a sensitive thermal safety device
automatically turns the oven off. The oven will be
inoperable until the oven has cooled sufficiently.
Radio Interference
Microwave oven operation may cause interference to
radio, television, or similar equipment. Reduce or
eliminate interference by doing the following:
• Clean the door and sealing surfaces of microwave oven
according to instructions in “Care and Cleaning”
section.
• Place radio, television, ect. as far as possible from the
microwave oven.
• Use a properly installed antenna on radio, television,
etc. to obtain stronger signal reception.
Earthing Instructions
This appliance MUST be earthed. If an electrical short
circuit occurs, earthing reduces the risk of electric shock
by providing an escape wire for the electric current. The
cord for this appliance has a earthing wire with a
earthing plug. Place the plug into an outlet that is
properly installed and earthed. Do not use a two–prong
adapter.

the earthing instructions or if you wonder whether the
appliance is properly earthed.
Keep the electrical power cord dry and do not pinch or
crush it in any way.
The wires in the power cord are colored in accordance
with the following code:
A–Allow at least 17.8 cm (7") of clearance around sides
of unit.
B–Allow at least 17.8 cm (7") of clearance on top unit.
C–Allow at least 6.5 cm (2-1/2") of clearance between
air discharge on back of unit and back wall.
D–Allow at least 8 cm (3") inches from door front to edge
of countertop, to avoid accidental tipping of the unit.

Component Testing Procedures
!
WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, disconnect power to oven and discharge capacitor
before servicing, unless testing requires it.
!
WARNING
To insure proper functioning of the interlock system if the 12 Amp. line fuse has opened, the switch assembly must be
replaced along with the fuse.
For continued protection against radiation hazard, replace only with identical replacement components.
Precautions to be observed before and during servicing to avoid possible exposure to excessive microwave energy:
• Do not operate or allow the oven to be operated with the oven door open.
• Make the following safety checks on all ovens to be serviced before activating the magnetron or other microwave source, and
make repairs as necessary: (1) Interlock operation, (2) Proper door closing, (3) Seal and sealing surface(s) (arcing, wear and
other damage), (4) Damage to or loosening of hinges and latches, (5) Evidence of dropping or abuse.
• Before turning or microwave power for any service test or inspection within the microwave generating compartments, check the
magnetron, wave guide, or transmission line, and cavity for proper alignment, integrity, and connections.
• Any failed or misadjusted components in the interlock, monitor, door seal, and microwave generation and transmission systems
shall be repaired, replaced, or adjusted by procedures described in this manual before the oven is released to the owner.
• A microwave leakage check to verify compliance with the federal performance standard should be performed on each oven prior
to release to the owner.
Power Test (Traditional Test Method)
Test equipment required is Amana power test kit R0157397(Fahrenheit), or
Menumaster power test kit M95D5 (Celsius).
1. Fill the plastic container to the bottom of the 1000 ml. line with cool tap water.
2. Using the thermometer; stir the water, measure and record the water temperature.
Initial water temperature should be approximately 60°F (20°C).
3. Place container on the center of the oven shelf and heat the water for 63 seconds.
NOTE:
Use a watch second hand, not the oven timer.
4. Stir the water, measure and record the temperature of the water after heating time is complete.
5. Subtract the starting water temperature (Step 2), from the ending water temperature (Step 4), to obtain the temperature rise.
6. See the Temperature Chart provided below.
NOTES:
• The IEC-705 test method requires precision measurements and equipment. It is not practical to perform the IEC
test in the field. To convert the traditional power test results to the approximate IEC-705 rating, take the traditional
power test results and add 100 watts per magnetron for the unit being tested.
Example: 930  watts output using the traditional power test for model RS511
+ 100  watts (1 magnetrons X 100 watts)
1030  Approximate IEC-705 results
• Always perform power test three times for accuracy, changing the water after each test is performed.
• Variation or errors in the test procedure will cause a variance in the temperature rise. Additional power tests should
be made if temperature rise appears marginal.
• Low line voltage will cause lower temperature rise.

Service Information
!
WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, disconnect power to oven and discharge capacitor
before servicing, unless testing requires it.
Proper Handling of Magnetron Tubes
!
CAUTION
A magnetron tube, like a radio or television tube
must be handled with a reasonable amount of care.
When handling a tube, always handle by the housing
only. Use caution not to touch or strike the ceramic
portion at the top. The carton used to ship service
replacement tubes is reusable.
Magnetron Failure Modes
Magnetron failures that have been identified are
generally grouped into categories shown below.
1. Shorted
Air - This is a case where the tube has had the vacuum
envelope destroyed and air has entered the tube.
This will cause internal arcing and high secondary
current if high voltage is applied.
2. Open Heater (Filament) - Can be determined by a
ohmmeter when transformer leads are
disconnected. Resistance is normally less than one
ohm; filament does not short internally. Any tube
removed should be checked since usage tends to
make the filament more fragile. Later handling and
shipping may open the filament and thereby mask
the true failure mode when checked at the factory.
3. Low Power - Caused by “wearout” of the emission
characteristics of the directly heated cathode.
Symptoms are: (1) tube current will take longer to
get to operating point than a new tube (normally
about 2 - 3 seconds), (2) tube current does not get
high enough to cause the tube to oscillate with
normal line voltage, (3) oven produces low power
into a load, two-thirds or less than normal.
4. Physical Damage - Caused by mishandling of
magnetron tube.
R.F. Capacitors - May short to chassis. This condition
will also cause loss of high voltage.

Measurement with the Outer Panel
Removed
WARNING
Check for radiation leakage after servicing. Should the
leakage be more than 4 mW/cm2 inform Maytag
immediately. After repairing or replacing any radiation
safety device, keep a written record for future reference,
as required by D.H.H.S. and HEW regulations. This
requirement must be strictly observed. In addition, the
leakage reading must be recorded on the service repair
ticket while in the customer’s home.
!
WARNING
Avoid contacting any high voltage components.
Whenever you replace the magnetron, measure for
radiation leakage before the outer panel is installed
and after all necessary components are replaced or
adjusted. Special care should be taken in measuring
around the magnetron.
Equipment
• Electromagnetic radiation monitor
• 600 cc glass beaker
Measurement with a Fully Assembled
Oven
Procedure for Measuring Radiation Leakage
Note before measuring:
• Do not exceed meter full scale deflection. Leak monitor
should initially be set to the highest scale.
• To prevent false readings the test probe should be held
by the grip portion of the handle only.
• The scan speed is equal to one inch per antenna
revolution or one inch per second if antenna speed is
unknown.
• Areas to be checked are all door seal areas and any
venting parts.
• Leakage with the outer panel removed ...4mW/cm2 or
less.
• Leakage for fully assembled oven with door normally
closed ...4 mW/cm2 or less.
• Leakage for a fully assembly oven (before the latch
switch (primary) is interrupted) while pulling the door
... 4 mW/cm2 or less.
After all components including the outer panel are fully
assembled, measure for radiation leakage around the
door periphery, the door viewing window, the exhaust
opening, and air inlet openings.
Record Keeping and Notification After
Measurement
1. After any adjustment or repair to a microwave
oven, a leakage reading must be taken. Record
this leakage reading on the repair ticket even if it is
zero.

WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock, personal injury, or death, disconnect power to oven and discharge capacitor
before servicing, unless testing requires it.
Operating Instructions for the Narda
8110B Radiation Monitor
Purpose of the monitor is to check radiation leakage
around the microwave oven door and other places
where radiation could possibly occur.
Radiation Monitor
This instrument measures radiation leakage in
milliwatts per square centimeters (mW/cm2). The
probe should be used with 2" (5cm) cone spacer.
1
Water load of 275 cc. (approximately 1 /3 cup), is to
be placed in the oven and used as a load during
leakage test.
Operate the instrument on its internal rechargeable
battery or a 115 or 230 V power supply. It may also be
charged from a 115 or 230 V 50 or 60 Hz power
source. “Meter Response” switch should be set on
fast position. Slow setting requires too long of a time
to register. “Alarm” control should be set on 50 which
sounds an audible alarm when the meter reads 50%
of full scale deflection. This is to provide warning
against high levels which may damage the instrument.
“Range” switch may be used on the lower or higher
meter scale. On an oven with an unknown leakage,
use high scale first. Switch to low scale for low
leakage. “Test” switch is used to check the battery
and probe. If either is faulty, meter needle will not read
above “Test Minimum” mark on the meter. Zero
control is used to zero the needle.
With probe and cone spacer plugged into the
instrument, turn monitor on-off switch to the on
position. Check battery and probe “Test” switch. If
battery reading does not come up to “Test Minimum”
setting, plug in AC cord. If probe test fails, do not use
probe.
Hold probe perpendicular to cabinet door. Place cone
of probe on the door and/or cabinet-door seam and
move along the seam. If leakage of the oven is
unknown, move probe slowly. Any time the audible
alarm sounds proceed with care in order not to
exceed a full scale reading of the meter or remove the
probe from the area of leakage. When testing near a
corner or access area of the door, keep probe
perpendicular to the areas making sure the probe end
at the base of the cone does not get closer than 2”
(5cm) to any metal. If it does, an erroneous reading
may result.
Always use the 2” (5cm) spacer with probe. Also,
always proceed carefully in areas of high leakage or
the probe can be accidentally burned-out. Rotating
stirrer causes high peaks of energy. Although meter
has averaging capabilities, probe will react
instantaneously to peak power changes which will
cause burn-out.
If oven is likely to have a large amount of leakage
approach the oven slowly with the probe, while
observing meter. This is achieved by holding probe
two or three feet from the oven and then moving
toward oven surface or gap between the door and
oven body while observing meter. When high leakage
is expected, do not move probe horizontally along the
oven surface, this could cause possible probe burnout. Greatest leakage is generally found at the
corners. After maximum leakage is established to be
within the meter scale range, then probe may be
moved horizontally around door surface.
NOTE: For further information see Amana Service
Letters of the R-10, R-35, and R-59 Series
and your Narda 8110B Instruction Manual.
During usage, if probe becomes inoperative or
disconnected, audio alarm will come on.
Test probe must be held by the grip portion of the
handle, otherwise false reading may result if operators
hand is between the handle and probe.

leakage, use high scale then switch to low scale and
test for low leakage. “Bat Test” switch is used to
check the battery and probe on the Holaday
Instruments. If either is faulty, meter needle will not
read above “Test Minimum” or battery mark on meter.
Holaday Instrument has a probe test switch position.
Meter needle must indicate in the “OK probe test”
portion of the scale when in this position. Zero control
is used to zero the needle. “ON-OFF” switch provides
a means of turning the operating voltage on or off.
“Range Multiplier” switch provides a means of
selection either 0-2 or 0-10 and 0-100 on the Holaday

CAUTION
All repairs as described in this section are to be performed only after the listed caution procedures listed below
have been followed.
•
•
•
•
Check grounding before checking for trouble.
Be careful of the high voltage circuit.
Discharge high voltage capacitor by shorting across terminals with screwdriver.
When checking the continuity of the switches or the high voltage transformer, disconnect one lead wire from
these parts and then check continuity with the AC plug removed. To do otherwise may result in a false reading
or damage to your meter.
• Do not touch any parts of the circuitry on the digital programmer circuit since static electric discharge may
damage this control panel. Always touch yourself to ground while working on this panel to discharge any static
charge in your body.
Use of the Schematic and/or Wiring Diagrams will assist the technician on the following component checks.
An Ohmmeter is required for most tests with a Multiplier Scale of X 1OK (k - thousand ohms). Test procedures will
be found elsewhere in this manual.
Condition
1. No voltage at outlet.
2. Voltage available to outlet. No components
operating (including oven light).
3. Internal 12 amp line fuse open.
NOTE: If line fuse is open, the interlock switch
assembly must be replaced, even if
another component caused the fuse to
open.
Warranty claims involving fuse
replacement will only be paid if switch
assembly is replaced along with the
fuse.
Possible Causes
• Line fuse open (external). Check for overload circuit.
• Open power cord.
• Failed terminal and/or wiring.
• Open line fuse. See Condition # 3.
• Open line filter.
• Open cavity thermal fuse.
• Open magnetron TCO.
• Interlock switch contacts open.
1. Failed terminal and/or wiring in 230 volt circuit of unit.
2. Shorted component in 230 volt circuit of unit.
3. Interlock switch assembly (test).
4. Replace fuse, if fuse blows quickly DO NOT proceed
with step 5: recheck steps 1, 2, and 3.
5. Check amperes and/or wattage compare to
Specifications.
6. If fuse blows after running a few seconds, disconnect
power cord, disconnect and tape apart high voltage
transformer primary wires, reconnect power cord.
7. If fuse does not open, disconnect power cord, and
check H.V. components and wiring.
8. If fuse opens, check 230 volt section for loose
connections or grounded wires. The timer, light and
motor by themselves draw less than 1 Ampere. If the
unit opens a fuse while the transformer is
disconnected, there are usually burned areas visible.
NOTE: When taking voltage measurements to the transformer the 230 V supply leads must be connected to the
transformer terminals. The Voltage reading should then be taken with the voltmeter leads also connected to
these terminals.

Failed triac.
Failed interlock switch assembly (contacts 2 & 3).
• Failed terminal and/or wiring in high voltage section.
• Failed H.V. transformer.
• Failed diode.
• Failed capacitor.
• Failed magnetron.
1. Run Oven Performance Tests, if okay, customer
education.
2. Check voltage at outlet, if low, customer education.
3. Check amperes and/or wattage, compare to Technical
Sheet.
4. Check tray and seal. If food debris has accumulated
under ceramic tray, this debris will absorb microwave
energy and affect performance test results.
5. If above checks are acceptable, replace magnetron.
• Customer is not following cookbook instructions,
customer education.
• Rotating antenna not turning, check mounting parts for
grease or burrs. This may also indicate incorrect airflow
due to foam gasket out of place, failed blower motor,
failed blower wheel or interference with splatter shield.
NOTE: The antenna will not rotate properly when the
splatter shield or outer case is removed.
NOTE: When taking voltage measurements to the transformer the 230 V supply leads must be connected to the
transformer terminals. The voltage reading should then be taken with the voltmeter leads also connected to
these terminals.

MESURES DE SECURITE IMPORTANTES
! ATTENTION
Pour éviter tous dégâts matériels ou blessures, observer les consignes suivantes :
1. Pour éviter toute ébullition ou éruption
spontanée, remuer vigoureusement ou verser
les liquides avant de les chauffer au four à
micro-ondes. Ne pas trop chauffer. Si de l’air
n’a pas été incorporé dans le liquide, celui-ci
peut déborder dans le four ou après en avoir
été retiré.
2. Ne pas faire de friture dans le four. La graisse
pourrait surchauffer et devenir dangereuse à
manipuler.
3. Les oeufs ne doivent pas être chauffés ou
réchauffés au four à micro-ondes dans leur
coquille ou avec leur jaune intact ; cela pourrait
provoquer une accumulation de pression et
l’éclatement de l’oeuf. Percer le jaune avec
une fourchette ou un couteau avant la cuisson.
4. Percer la peau des pommes de terre, tomates
et aliments similaires avant de les cuire au four
à micro-ondes. Lorsque la peau est percée, la
vapeur peut s’échapper uniformément.
5. Ne pas faire fonctionner l’appareil sans
nourriture à l’intérieur.
6. Pour faire du pop-corn, utiliser uniquement du
maïs en paquet spécial micro-ondes (indiqué
sur l’étiquette). Le temps nécessaire pour faire
éclater le maïs varie en fonction de la
puissance du four. Ne pas continuer à faire
chauffer le maïs une fois qu’il a fini d’éclater,
car il peut brûler ou s’enflammer. Ne pas laisser
le four sans surveillance.
7. Ne pas utiliser de thermomètre de cuisson pour
four traditionnel dans le four. La plupart des
thermomètres de cuisson contiennent du mercure
qui peut causer des arcs électriques ou le
mauvais fonctionnement du four, ou encore
endommager celui-ci.
8. Ne pas faire chauffer de biberon au four.
9. Ne pas utiliser d’ustensiles métalliques dans le
four.
10. Ne jamais utiliser de papier, de plastique ni autre
matériau combustible non prévu pour la cuisson.
11. Si la cuisson utilise du papier, du plastique ou
autre matériau combustible, suivre les
recommandations du fabricant concernant son
utilisation.
12. Ne pas utiliser de serviettes en papier contenant
du nylon ou autres fibres synthétiques. Ces fibres
pourraient fondre et faire enflammer le papier.
13. Ne pas faire chauffer de récipients ni de sacs en
plastique hermétiquement fermés dans le four. La
nourriture ou le liquide pourrait gonfler rapidement
et faire éclater le récipient ou le sachet. Percer ou
ouvrir celui-ci avant de le faire
chauffer.
14. Pour éviter toute défaillance de stimulateur
cardiaque, prière de se renseigner auprès du
médecin ou du fabricant du stimulateur au
sujet des effets de l’énergie micro-ondes sur

Installation
Unpacking Oven
•
•
•
•
Inspect oven for damage such as dents in door or inside oven cavity.
Report any dents or breakage to source of purchase immediately.
Do not attempt to use oven if damaged.
Remove all materials from oven interior.
If oven has been stored in extremely cold area, wait a few hours before
connecting power.
Radio Interference
Microwave operation may cause interference to radio, television, or a similar
oven. Reduce or eliminate interference by doing the following:
• Clean door and sealing surfaces of oven according to instructions in
Care and Cleaning section.
• Place radio, television, etc. as far as possible from oven.
• Use a properly installed antenna on radio, television, etc. to obtain
stronger signal reception.
Oven Placement
•
•
•
•
•
Do not install oven next to or above source of heat, such as pizza oven
or deep fat fryer. This could cause microwave oven to operate
improperly and could shorten life of electrical parts.
Do not block or obstruct oven filter. Allow access for cleaning.
Install oven on level countertop surface.
Place warning label in a conspicuous place close to microwave oven.
Outlet should be located so that plug is accessible when oven is in place.
! WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock
or death, this oven must be
earthed.
! WARNING
To avoid risk of electrical shock
or death, do not alter the plug.
Earthing Instructions
Oven MUST be earthed. Earthing
reduces risk of electric shock by
providing an escape wire for the
electric current, if an electrical short
occurs. This oven is equipped with a
cord having a earth wire with a
earthing plug. The plug must be
plugged into an outlet that is properly
installed and earthed.
Consult a qualified electrician or
servicer if earthing instructions are
not completely understood, or if
doubt exists as to whether the oven
is properly earthed.
Do not use an extension cord.
If the product power cord is too
short, have a qualified electrician
install a three-slot receptacle. This
oven should be plugged into a
separate 50 hertz circuit with a 230
voltage supply. When a microwave
oven is on a circuit with other
equipment, an increase in cooking
times may be required and fuses can
be blown.
A
B
A
A—Allow at least 7" (17.8 cm) of clearance around top and sides of oven. Proper air
flow around oven cools electrical components. With restricted air flow, oven may
not operate properly and life of electrical parts is reduced.
B—Allow at least 2 9/16 " (6.5 cm) between air discharge on back of oven and back wall.
