    We also have the EXACT same problem. Microwave works minus heating. Timer countdown works but no heating.

    Same problem. Is it possibly the door switch? That may be wishful thinking. The switch is much cheaper to replace. Is it more cost effective to buy the part ourselves and replace it or have it repaired by a professional? I believe the part is under warranty.

    Has anyone tried checking/replacing the magnetron. If so.....did it work.....and what is the magnetron and where is it located. Not a good sign that so many people are having problems with the same thing and our microwaves are only about a year or so old!

Frigidaire microwave not working

Is the door closing properly? Do you hear it "click" when it closes. A lot of times the problem is the door switch. It is located inside the microwave. They are made of plastic and they break. If the switch is broken, the magnetron(microwaves) will not start.

Light over the stove is to dim

Good Morning Paul, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

For the above-listed Frigidaire model number, FMV156D, it is not recommended to use a bulb larger than 30 watts. Your microwave does not have an option available to adjust the lights. If the light is dimmed, than more than likely your microwave is experiencing an issue with the control board, a potential wiring failure, or faulty light socket. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend connecting with a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause. You can often locate a qualified service provider through the manufacturer website.

Everything works except the cooking part/no heating/turntable not turning, help!


This is just a preliminary reply. We will need more information to help you.

So you're saying you can set the cooking time but when you press Start it won't start?

If this is the case, you probably have a bad door swithc or door switch mount.

Please reply back with more detail so we can help you.

Sounds like the problem is in the high voltage. Most common would be magnatron, capacitor and diode. For safety reasons this should be checked by a professional. Look in your owners manual because some high voltage parts have a longer warranty than 1 yr.
