Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.

the fan on the microwave runs and the lights ? does the light inside come on when you open the door ? is the clock lit ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

no, fan does not work or the stove light does not either, light inside does work when door is opened, yes clock works as does the micro wave, but with no fan operating

okay, sorry I misread it. do the buttons beep when you press them and try to start them ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
yes i have beeps from both fan and light switch operations
okay this means the keypad is good, the problem is the control board. also call the microcomputer. part # XXXXX . Sears has this in stock for $102.00 I'm not sure how much you want to put into this however, thats up to you but heres a link to the part, http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Whirlpool-Parts/Microwave-Parts/W10197763/0022/664/M odel-MH1160XSB6/1198/0123370?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=W0812060&diagramPageId=00001&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=MH1160XSB6&subCompDesc=Control%20panel%20parts&brandDesc=WHIRLPOOL&modelDesc=MICROWAVE&blt=11&shdMod= thanks Bryan

Hi, thanks for using JustAnswer.com. Please remember, I do not get paid for my time and expertise until you accept. The fan and light are both controlled from the board Bryan suggested, I agree with his diagnosis.
