Question about Frigidaire PLMV169DC Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Display shows clear to enter time but buttons are not working

Display shows push clear to enter time, I cannot push the clear button. the only 2 buttons are working are the fan and light everything else is not working, I removed the panel thinking it was dirty contacts or something like that, I cleaned inside but this did not help, my question is do you think its the panel or could it be the control board? If I would know what leads are on the ribbon cable for the display I could check to see if they are actually giving me a contact.

Thanks for any help,

Steve

You probably have a failed membrane keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your 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.

Microwave does not work at all. Shows "PF" in display.


"PF" on the display is an indication that your oven experienced a power interruption. Normally, the error code can be cleared by pressing the CLEAR/OFF button. You may have to reset the time. This is accomplished by pressing the CLOCK button, entering the time on the keypad, then pressing CLOCK again. If this does not clear your problem, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
