Question about Frigidaire ATF6000ES Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Unit does not work after power outage.

After a power outage the microwave does not operate other than the fan and light in the oven when the door is opened. The unit was unplugged and plugged in again as per the manual with no change. There is no response at the panel from any input on any buttons.

    After learning of my options I then consuted the net to determine the approximate cost of parts and I was able to determine whether or not to have the unit repaired. When I called a repair technician I was able to speak with him knowledgably.

That means that either the control board, or the magnetron inside the microwave had been damaged by the power surge.

Call a qualified technician for repair, or call the service number listed on the owner manual for factory repair or warranty services.

Samsung Microwave Oven SMH7159 No Power


The power outage may have been accompanied with a power surge. That can happen with lightning strikes, or if a large inductor (electric motor or equivalent) happened to be on the same power line at the time of the outage. There's a good chance a surge took out the control panel.

Is their any harm from the microwave to the person?


Yes, if it really is operating the magnetron and generating microwaves, but that is "virtually" (nearly; almost) impossible, because all microwave ovens come with a special door switch (called a monitor switch) whose job it is to cause the internal fuse to blow and kill power to the microwave. It is more likely that just the fan and light stay on, but not the magnetron, and that is caused by a different defective door switch. (All microwave ovens come with 3 or 4 door switches, and they all must work right for your microwave oven to operate.) You better call a professional repairman to have that microwave checked & repaired.

When I open microwave oven door . close the door again light comes on an plate spins an wont stop unless I unplug it


Inside the door latch, is a safety feature, that prevents the microwave from operating unless the door is closed. This feature can easily become faulty, or even come with the fault already causing the microwave to constantly operate whenever the door is closed.

Microwaves can be very dangerous in regard to holding HEAPS of voltage within the unit. I recommend getting yourself a new microwave, as attempting repairs on any of the modern units can, more often than not, be far more costly then the price of a new one.

Hope this helps.

No power dead


power outages cause power surges and will damage electronic control boards. I suggest replacing the Control board and checking the interlocking door switches. Whilst inside the microwave check the magnetron for discoloration around the magnetron horn or gun as it were. If it don't look clean and new, otherwise burnt it's bad !

Fan runs when door is closed and no time set.


Some GE units were starting on their own. I would definitely unplug this oven and call GE to make sure yours wasn't one of the ones being re-called.

Hotpoint Microwave Model RVM1435BD 001- microwave comes on when I open the door.


Many microwaves have similar issues. Usually, (not always) only the light is on and the fan is running, not the section that produces the microwaves. This problem can be caused by the door switches that are out of alignment or a defective control board.

A small blinking light on the left upper corner of panel after a power outage and I can't do any command. The interior lights don't even come on when opening door. I already reset the breaker


Unplug the microwave oven for 10 minutes in a attempt to reset the microprocessor ic, press and hold the start button for the same time and release. Now plug everything back in hopes it will restart, if no change! the keypad control board will need to be replaced along with other unknown parts, due to the nature of damage far cheaper to replace.

I have a JVM1850 that was installed 4 years ago. The unit was working fine, then a day ago I received an error display requesting a charcoal filet replacement. No filter is needed since it is vented...


I have a JVM1850 White microwave-over the oven-installed 3 years ago. Last evening the unit would not turn off. The inside light and fan continued to run, however, the microwave was not working.

All the controls and functions seem to operate, but when completed, the unit remained working, as stated above, with the door opened or closed.
