Question about Frigidaire GLMV168K Microwave Oven
Lights work but does not heat food. It will not stop running until I shut the breaker. Is this a simple problem that I can fix myself?
Test the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.
Thediode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must bealloweddischarge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenifpower is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting theirtwocontacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.
