Possibly a stuck button which would mean a replacement pad, do the buttons bleep when you push them do some work and others dont its quite common normally its the start button or the cancel which goes(due to constant pushing) and it causes the error alternatively its a possible logic board fault which is far more expensive to replace!

    i personally wouldn't recommend it due to fact that you'll need to strip the oven down so unless you feel competent enough to go inside it and know what you can and cant touch i personally wouldn't go inside, although if your gonna do it the control panels costs between £20-£30 over in the uk so probably a bit cheaper for you in the states, we get ripped off so much

My plmv169dcd stopped working,looks like it has no power, but there is power at plug in. is there a reset button>


Not quite enough information. But, there is no reset button. Open unit check fuse. test all 3 door switches. They are the number one cause of problems and can take out the fuse or not. Other than that it will take more trouble shooting to find the problem

Where is the fuse on my microwave Electrolux PLMV169DCD located?


We have three service manuals covering the PLMV169 series, which you can download free:

http://www.microwavedisplay.com/plmv169dcc_sm.pdf
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/glmv169_plmv169_sm.pdf
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/glmv169_plmv169_late_prod_sm.pdf

They're all pretty similar.

You can usually find parts from the Pros here.

If not, contact Electrolux at the phone number on the front of the service manual.

It may be the C/T fuse (thermal fuse located above the magnetron) or the oven cavity thermal cutout, located on the top of the cavity.

Accessing these two parts for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Electrolux / Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions
here.

It may also be that there was a power surge which damaged the control circuit board, activating the built-in surge protection.

This is not resettable. The circuit board has to be repaired. We do that for $39.95, details here.

Ge microwave HVM1540DN1BB button control pad stopped working


I am not familiar with the Whirlpool microwaves; however, I just had the same problem with an LG over the range microwave. Several of the positions on the touchpad quit responding to touch. In our case, it was the touchpad itself that was the problem.

The touchpad on our microwave was held in place with adhesive. We pulled it off and replaced it with a new touchpad. Everything works now. The only complication is getting to the connector which carries the signals from the touchpad to the microwave controls. We had to remove and dissassemble the door to get to that connector.

The touchpad cost about $26.00.

may i please ask you how old is the machine? what you need to do is open it up and have a very good look at the pads. check for ware and tare. give the contacts a clean. may i please ask are you pressing the pads two hard? please check the light. it may just need to re new it. if you have a meter. check the circuit board to see if it is getting any current. also you like to change the fuse. check that you are getting the correct power? from the mains cable

Frigidaire plmv169dcd not venting properly. Filters are clean.


If it's equipped with a charcoal filter, that needs to be changed (not cleaned) about every 6-12 months, depending on use.

I would also very the installation and venting set up found in the installation instructions.

You can download Electrolux/Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If all that is proper, then I would suspect an obstruction such as an animal nest in the vent outlet or in the duct work.

You most likely had a power surge and blew a fuse. First unplug the unit,then remove the top grill. There will either be one screw on top of the control pad or 2 on the left side. open the control panel and look for a fuse that has a ceramic center and replace it with a 20 amp one. You can find these at the hardware store
