 :D Way to go Kean.  Not an obvious fix.  With your detailed instructions, I got my microwave up and running.  The ribbon cable was stuck together where it folded.  I used index card paper, cut it 3/4" x 1".  Did not go very far under the keypad but after taping it up, reassembled it and plugged it in viola, all worked.  Major kudos and many thanks.  I'm sure I avoided a $100 service call.   :thanks:

I registered at this site just to say thanks to Kean - article July 15 2014.  Maytag MMV4203 Made in 2010 code SE. I followed the directions from Kean and our microwave is back up and running with some paper and tape. Thank you Kean. It took me about an hour because it was new territory for me, but it was easy.

Just registered so I could extend a "thank you" to Kean for his detailed and effective instructions. After calling around local repair shops, nobody wanted to come out to make this fix, so I had to fix it myself. Saved my landlord time and hassle, anyway!

Thank you Kean for your instructions!  It worked perfectly!  This is the second time I have made a repair to this microwave, where last time it was the control board had burned out.  Ordered one via eBay and installed and worked.  Good to have a forum like this one!

Another new account to say, "Thanks!"

While it is possible that taking it apart and putting back together fixed it, I did the paper trick and my microwave no longer has ghosts hitting buttons and "-SE-" on the display, so I have every reason to believe that there was a short in that area.

The repair was amazingly easy (I'm good with electronics, but still) and saved me $100+ in parts.
