Question about Microwave Ovens
Lights on. But no reaction when we touch the buttons. They beep but don't do anything.
1450 Watts, over the range. Manufactured in 1999. These are expensive babies to replace :(

Is it possible that some spray cleaner accidentally got into the controls?
Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.
Always spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.
Always use the vent fan when cooking on the stove top to keep steam and grease out of the controls.
If it did get damp and it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.
The keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may have some corrosion.
At this point, I would suggest service.
We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.
If we had to replace the keypad, that would add some to the cost, maybe $50 for the average Daewoo.
(I just sent a few to Daewoo tech assist to get part pricing and availability for the keypad, board, etc. in case they're needed or to give you a better estimate.)
Plus there would be an additional shipping charge of $15 for Canada.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have the same microwave with the same problem...frozen keys. I think it might be the "child safety lock" I could not locate a user manual, but other similar daewoo microwabes disable/enable it by holding the Stop/cancel button down for three seconds. Try it...didn't work for me, but it might you. I am trying a hard reset now.
