Ge microwave jvm1740 start and clear/off button not working


Sounds like a bad keypad. You will need the full model number off the microwave to look up the correct control panel part number. Sometimes these type of parts can be really expensive & it may make more sense to replace the microwave depending on the age and condition.

My microwave doesn't work, but display works


I would strongly consider replacing the microwave oven, prices have dropped considerably. The problem you are describing is in the keypad controller board.

Forgot my childproof code now i cant use my microwave how can i get a new one


Many microwave CHILD LOCK features are activated / disabled by repeatedly pressing one of the function buttons or by holding it down for about 5 seconds.

Try pressing the STOP / CANCEL button 3 or 4 times in a row to see if you can the CHILD LOCK off.

If that doesn't work, also try holding down that button down for 5 seconds.

Try these same two procedures on some of the other buttons as well like the TIMER button, or the START button, or the CLOCK button.

Your best bet however would be to include the brand and model number with your question next time and then we will be able to locate the exact instructions for you.

I hope this was helpful.

Good luck and take care.

Joe.

Most of the buttons on my Goldstar MV1604SB stopped working


Does the display on your microwave read "Locked"? If so, then the Child Lock feature has been activated. To toggle the lock off, press and hold the Stop/Clear pad for more than 4 seconds. When this feature is active, most buttons are disabled to prevent accidental microwave use.

If holding the Stop/Clear button doesn't work, then I'd suggest there is a problem with the contacts behind the buttons. Sears Parts Direct has the parts diagrams for this microwave here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Goldstar-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-MV1604SB/1366/0123245 . (It's better to replace the control panel then to try to fix it.) Use the part numbers from the list to find price and availability at other sites.

The manual for the MV1604SB is available from Manage My Life: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/17638/GOLDSTAR-Countertop-Microwave-L0521424?brand_name_search=loosening+tight+screws .

I hope this helps.

Microwave doesn't start but the interior light goes on when you hit the start button


Hello

Remove the plug from the wall outlet and wait about 10 seconds before re-inserting it. The plug must be firmly inserted to transfer electricity to the appliance.


Open your home's circuit breaker box and reset the breaker if it has tripped and is set to the "Off" position. Simply slide the breaker over to the "On" position to fix a breaker that has tripped.


Plug a different appliance into the same outlet to make sure the outlet you are using is functional. Plug the microwave into a different outlet to see if this yields different results.


Press on the microwave door to ensure it is completely closed. The microwave will not function until the door is fully shut.


Press the "Start" pad on the display panel after setting the time. Failing to press this will result in the microwave not knowing that it should start.


Press the "Stop/Reset" pad on the panel if a program different from the program you want to run has already been entered into the system.


Press the "Clock" pad three times to turn off the demo mode. The demo mode will not allow the appliance to turn on and cook as it should.

Try unplugging it, wait 60 seconds, and plug back in. Or press the HELP button if there is one, press the number "1", and press STOP. That works on my Sharp microwave.

R-209BK Sharp Microwave buttons inoperable


I had this problem too:
it turns out that it (apparently) just needed some 'warm-up' time!

After being plugged in for about 15 to 30 minutes,
the buttons suddenly "came to life"...

Note that when it's flashing 88:88 you are supposed to _start_ with the 'Stop/Clear' button. After that, set the clock (press "Clock", enter the time with the number pad, then press Clock again).

Hope that helps.

Unlocking child lock on the sharp microwave model R316FSC


The Sharp Microwave/Convection oven I have says to touch the Custom Help button, the number "1", then touch the Start Button. To turn off the child lock, press the Stop button.
Or just unplug it, wait 1 minute, and plug in.
