Question about Frigidaire PLMV169DC Microwave Oven
The light is on, but no one home... The interior light will not turn off at all. The interior fan will only turn off if the door is open. The clock works, and all other functions except any cook functions. The turntable is not moving when door is closed and light and fan are on. Turntable function set to on Child lock set to Off New wiring and breaker were installed for this. I did plug the microwave (using a heavy duty extension cord) to an existing plug on a different breaker. No change.
Sounds like you have a defective door switch, door switch mount, or (worse) possible damage to the "hooks" which go into the holes in the chassis to activate the switches. Be sure to unplug it first. If this is an over the range model, you should not have to remove it from the wall to fix it. Generally speaking, you remove the grille across the front, then you'll see a screw holding the control panel frame on. Once that's removed, you lift the control panel assembly up and out. Then you can see the door switches and lathces, etc. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our 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
