Microwave / Oven Combo
The Microwave works perfectly except it does not heat anything. All the buttons and lights are working, the turntable spins and the light comes on inside.
Any suggestions? Thanks.

In order to provide most accurate advise we need the complete model number of the unit. You can find it on the oven door frame.

Part number
I found the following:
8538 793 54001
XNF 1310108

One other thing, I powered off at the circuit breaker and back on and a red code PF showed up on the left of the display. I figured that might mean Power Failure but I don't know.

"PF" means power failure. Just push the Cancel button to get rid of it.

The model number is on the right side of the Oven door frame.

Model No.
Got it! Thanks.


June '96 is the date of manufacture as well. Older than I thought but since its a built in two part system I'd like to fix it rather than replace it.

Open the control panel and check the 20 Amps fuse behind the control panel. Replace if it's open.

- The part number for the fuse is AP3010073

Here are the break down diagrams for the Whirlpool oven/microwave combo Model RMC305PDQ1

Before I start..
..any tips to removing the control panel? Other than turning power off!

Gene 08-28-2008 06:19 PM

Open the oven door. Remove the screw on each side of the trim. Pull the trim toward yourself from the bottom and slide it down to release it from the control panel tab.

Remove the screw on each side of the control panel bottom tab. Pull the control panel bottom toward yourself and lift it up to release from the top tabs. Now it's all yours.
