Question about Frigidaire PLMV168 Microwave Oven
I've got this microwave that started to generate an error code "FS" during normal operation. I can't find this #%()&$()^$ code listed anywhere - anyone tell em anything about it?
That would actually be F5 and it usually indicates a problem with the control circuit board or a shorted keypad, but occasioanlly it's a door switch problem. You can try unplugging it a few minutes then checking it. Once in a while they get scrambled and need a reset. If you or a friend decide to work on it further, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) 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 full model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 The next step would be to unplug it, take it apart, and then unplug the membrane keypad from the circuit board, then plug it back in and see if the error code pops up. If not, it's got a bad keyad, which normally can be replaced separately. If so, it's the board or the door switches. You can then use our door switch file to check the swtiches.

Tips for a great answer:
Thank you for your inquiry, Leanne!
From the information you have provided your Electrolux microwave is displaying an error code of "F1". I am showing that an "F1" error code is not valid. I would recommend resetting your microwave and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If that does not correct your issue and you continue to experience an "F1" code please reconnect. -Matt
