Question about Goldstar MA-2117W / B 1150 Watts Microwave Oven
I have a 6+ year old 1150 watt goldstar that has been pampered, & has given us flawless service... it's used mostly to heat things up...not to cook for extended periods of time... it has developed an intermittent problem, that i'm guessing may be caused by a loose connection... symptoms: when setting the keypad for a duty cycle, the display will sometimes blank out or show 8's & blank-out for a period time, ranging from seconds, to, up to 2 minutes or so.... tapping on the cabinet or opening & closing the door, or un/re-plugging, the unit seems to restore function quicker... & my wife says sometimes when it blanks-out, she leaves the unit & finds it has returned to normal, when she returns later... it's totally random event happening perhaps 2% of the time... when the glitch is not present, the unit functions perfectly... no weird noises or smells detected... thanks in advance, guru's lee / columbus firstname.lastname@example.org
Sometimes this is a problem with a door switch or mount. Other times it's a problem with the control panel assembly, which we regularly repair nationwide for just $32.50. We have *critical* safety and disassembly tips plus info on diagnosing and replacing door switches at our Web site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your base model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
