    Thank you for your insights. We did try the door latch testing to make sure it was closed completly. After some other things, we gave up and took the microwave down. We started taking it apart to see if we could find anything obvious that could be repaired by non-experts like us. What we found was a wire that had come loose behind the display panel. The end of the wire had a clamp which we pushed onto a tab on a device on the side wall of the heating chamber. It fit so tightly we have no idea how it could have shaken loose! The oven has been in use for 4 years, though, so I guess vibrations could do it. Anyway, we put the protective shell back on and it works again perfectly! Just thought you'd like to know. Thank you again for your assistance. It is greatly appreciated.

Micro switch is bad .remove top vent cover 4 screws,after removing plastic vent panel you will see 1 screw above display time window,remove this screw and lift up the complete button time control panel slightly and pull towards you to remove.there are 2 connections on this panel 1 is a 12 pin connector and a 2 pin power connection remove both put control panel aside.now there are 3 micro switches where the door pins close into the oven lock,remove 2 screws that hold the micro switch housing,on the bottom of housing you will see a small clip gently pull to the right and push back to remove .there are 2 switches on bottom of it and 1 on top. the 1 on top is normally open and closes when door is shut but like mine it stayed open and resulted in (light s display but no turntable)soon as i replaced upper microswitch it runs perfect.i hope this helps .MODEL MV1501W GOLDSTAR

No, it has a fuse inside, but if it were blown, the oven would be totally dead.

The problem you have is either a bad secondary interlock (probably the top door switch) or a problem with its mount.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

Or just see http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

My goldstar microwave model mv1501w had the same issue with running but not heating. I had a repair man come over, and fixed some wiring in the panel. the microwave then started making a vibration noise everytime it ran. today, to my complete horror, the microwave caught on fire and flames were shooting from the vent in the front. words of advise, throw out this piece of **** before it burns down your house...

Microwave isn't coming on. Unplugged the microwave and then plugged it back in. It came on for just a moment, then it went off again.

Check the internal ceramic fuse on the circuit board. Sometimes one section will work while another won't. I'm not sure if this model has a rear mounted thermal fuse, but the models with the inline thermal fuse will cause a similar issue.

My Goldstar microwave Mod.#MV1501W Does no get any power, light over the oven does no light up, the fuse in the unit is good.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If the fuse is good then the problem is with the high voltage capacitor or the circuit board itself going bad and needs replacement. If it is a circuit board then it will cost you around same as new one. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Goldstar Microwave - Digital display is dark & does not operate


I would suspect the oven cavity thermostat is open.

We have a similar model's service / repair manual and have uploaded it to our site here for free download to help you with disassembly & troubleshooting.


To order Goldstar / L.G. parts, visit Encompass. Since l.G. / Goldstar does not list part numbers in their manuals, you'll probably have to call Encompass toll-free at at 866-779-5835.

Could be the relay, an internal fuse. With the power off, open up the key panel and search for a fuse. Also, there are thermo sensors black, diameter of a dime and 3/8 inch thick with two wires. Check the fuse and replace if necessary. The thermo can be jumped out to test. Remove the wires, use a paper clip between them and tape it up. Briefly turn the unit on. Replace if it works now. The thermo is generally clamped to the wall of the oven behind the key panel. Never run without the thermo sensor.
