    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.

From your description you have a bad door switch, there are usually a few of them located inside the microwave under the keypad control board that will need a digital meter to trouble shoot.

Microwave doesn't work


Sounds like you have a faulty control panel. I would use a meter and test the power from the control board to the magnetron and circuit board. Chances are the control panel is faulty

Microwave key pad stopped working


Okay, thank you for that.

You have a failed membrane keypad, but on this model, it is not available separately.

You would need to order the control panel assembly, part # WB56X10817, which you can get here for far less than GE charges.

It costs more than just a membrane would, but is much simpler to replace.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you remove your circuit board from the old frame and install it in the new frame.

I have an Emerson Microwave Oven MW8997W and cannot change the hour (time) on my clock. How do I change the clock? Debbie


If your keys do not work at all, you probably have a bad keypad, in which case I'd ask you to reply back. In the meantime:

SETTING THE CLOCK

When the microwave oven is plugged into an outlet,
the oven will display " 0:00 "

1. Press the CLOCK button; the hour digit will blink
and the clock indicator will light.

2. Press the number keys to set current hour.

3. Press the number keys to set current minute.

4. Press AM/PM to choose AM or PM.

5. Press the CLOCK button again; the display will
show the present time. After the clock has been set,
the time will appear with blinking colon, unless
the oven is cooking or defrosting.

G.E. Spacesaver Microwave - Keypad Won't Work


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

You may have a problem with the keypad or the control unit (circuit board / smart board).

We repair these on a regular basis. Details and *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info is at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Does it seem like the unit is actually responding in any way when you press another key?

It sounds like a shorted keypad, like the Power key is shorted.

This can be due to wear or moisture, most often from cooking steam or spraying cleaners directly onto the keypad.

You may find it's not economical to repair this, as parts may be unavailable separately.

If you have the manual, you can contact their support line to see.
