Power is on, but won't cook

It's only two months old, the lights work, the clock shows, but when you press any key on the keypad - nothing, it won't cook. Goldstar MV-1610 made in 2/06.

    I tried the child lock fix, holding down clear for 5 seconds. I then unplugged and replugged the power - it now works. Thanks.

First, be sure the child lock is off. It may have an "L" or the word "LOCKED" showing in the display. You can unlock it by pressing and holding the CLEAR pad for 5 seconds or so. Your model may use a different key, maybe the "0" (zero) key. If that doesn't fix it, since it's still under warranty you should grab your sales receipt and your owner's manual and call LG / Goldstar customer service at 1-800-243-0000 to find the nearest authorized servicer. There may be some foreign substance on the circuit board or inside the layers of the keypad. Most commonly this is due to spray cleaner being sprayed directly onto the keypad. Cleaner should be always sprayed on a soft cloth first, then use the cloth to wipe the keypad clean. Always use alcohol-based cleaner on microwaves, never ammonia-based cleaner, which can crack and/or warp the plastic. If this is what has happened, it would not be covered under warranty, and it may or may not be repairable. A handy person can remove the control panel frame and see if there's any liquid inside on or behind the panel. If so, it is possible to dry it out with an air compressor or heat, but often that does not work.

My Goldstar became locked all the sudden. Found out through your solution that somehow my 4 year old grandson push a button and I did not know it. I have had this Microwave for over 12 years and did not know it had a lock on it. Thank you for your solution.

We have a Goldstar mv1310w microwave that the lights have quit working on. This is the light over the range that you can turn on while cooking on the stove. We put new bulbs in and I even show voltage on...


mcdevito75 here, It could be the light sockets are dirty from cooking fumes, oil etc, remove power from the sockets and clean them with alcholol and cotton swabs or paper towels etc.

Well i haven't seen this complaint, but the goldstar 1310


you will need to replace the circuit board. Chancers that the key pad is also faulty are slim. Quote model at spares shop and get exact board.

Does not cook - time counts down extremely fast


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.
and please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

Turn off Demo Mode on goldstar Microwave


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Otherwise, try holding CLEAR for 3 seconds, then try each pad for 3 seconds.
