It may reset if you power cycle it..meaning unplugging the power cord and then plugging it in but if you want a detailed answer , you will need to provide a brand and model with your question.. Also, does the control panel have a lock button that you can press to toggle it on or off?

Frigidaire microwave ffmv164lsa constant beeping, with little symbol to the top left hand side of the clock displaying with the beep. Keypad not responding to presses. Unplugged the unit the problem r


Hey JT Tai, I appreciate your post!
The symbol at the top left hand side of your display could be child lock symbol or vent symbol. If it is the child lock you should be able to press and hold the stop/cancel button down for 3 seconds to release the child lock.

If the light is on for the vent I would seek assistance from a professional for proper diagnosis and repair to be completed on your microwave. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Nn2555 display weak


In many cases , cockroaches are found to habit within specially when not used and can spoil the main board, panel display and connectors. Remove the front panel and board and confirm and if so you need to wash the board and reset. Also it can be due to failure of the display or drive from the board

None of the Microwave buttons on the panel seem to be working. I tried replugging it many times but to no avail. l am unable to start the microwave. How do I get the microwave panel working and start...


Could the Child Lock feature be active on the microwave? If it is active, there may be a "box" symbol formed by the LCDs in the display. Try pressing and holding the Stop/Clear button for 3 seconds (or a little more). You should hear a long beep and the clock should return to the display (if it was set).

I do not have the DMW1153. However, I assume the DMW1158 is similar. The manual for the DMW1158 is here: http://www.danby.ca/cms/uploads/products/en_manual/DMW1158BL_EFOM2_%28web%29.pdf . Additional Danby microwaves are listed here http://www.danby.com/products/cooking . If you go to any of the links, the manual will be available from the Literature tab.

I hope this helps.

Sounds as though you'll have to replace it again. There isn't much else it can be. Is there a chance that the house is not well grounded? Lighting and the such can do this.
given the cost of parts....Look to price shop a new one before fixing this one.

What happens when you activate the child lock on a hinari Silver solo microwave MX745GLSL


In all the models, when the child lock is on, the controller will then not respond to any input except that specific combination or held key which unlocks it.

You should also see a lock or "L" or some other symbol on the display.

Does this answer your question?

LG LMVM2055SB over the range microwave keys not working


Is it possible someone may have sprayed cleaner directly onto the keypad area?

This causes moisture to get into the keypad and sometimes onto the control board.

This could mean that they control panel frame with keypad (membrane switch) would need to be replaced.

Can you give more details on the cleaning?

Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave won't start


I would first suggest unplugging the oven for a few minutes to give it a reset. On Whirlpool brand microwaves, you will hear a series of beeps when you hit START if one of the following is true: - the control panel is not programmed correctly - the door is not shut - there is a problem with the door latch system - there is a problem with the control panel If you do not have your owner's manual, you can download it here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/literature_search_results.jsp?searchTerm=RMC275PD#literror It doesn't sound like the control panel is locked. When the control panel lock is activated, you will see "Loc" and a lock symbol in the display and only the clock, timer, and oven light will operate. If that does not solve the problem, then you have oneof the other problems as listed above. If you need further help, please reply / add a comment here.
