Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

Well, i got this microwave from a friend when i moved to my own appartment, and i kinda need the manual for it. as it's really hard to understand.


Call Goldstar at this number and see if they can get your manual for you.

Tel: (800) 243-0000
Fax: (256) 772-8987

I will look again if they can not help you.

Now mind you Goldstar is actually LG. The LG Group was a merger of two Korean companies, Lucky and GoldStar, from which the abbreviation of LG was derived. You may end up having to contact LG for a manual.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Sensor pad does not work


For the sensor problem, I would I would suggest a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If it still does not work, you may have a bad sensor or door switch.

Here is some info on checking door switches: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

Panasonic inverter door won't shut, light stays on.


Thanks for the tips - here is what I did (my wife calls me the Canadian McGuyver!) After taking off the plastic frame (using instructions in Solutions noted above) I used the metal part of a key ring and hooked one end to the spring and looped it around the thick finger/protrusion at the bottom. _197.jpg

In most cases this is a bad door switch or a broken or loose door switch mount.

This is very economical for the average do-it-yourselfer as opposed to a service call, which may cost $75 to get someone in the door then another $50 or so to fix it, plus parts.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

Chances are the panels separate as shown in the photo I have attached below.

 

Panel replacement can usually be done without removing the door from the microwave.

 

In cases where it is felt that door removal is necessary, I recommend detaching the door from the hinges.

 

I generally do not advise removing the hinges from the microwave.

 

Whenever the hinges are removed, great care must be taken to put them back in the very same position they were in.

 

Failure to do so can cause microwave leakage, which can cause risk of skin burns, fire, and disruption nearby electronic devices.

 

By the way, where did you get the part? I'm trying to find a good Goldstar / LG source to recommend.
