Behind the keypad there is a control board.
google the model number and replace part.
power surges kill these boards.
turn off before replacing.

MY KEYBOADS DOEN'T FUNCTION,WHAT CANI DO?


Depending of course on your full model number, you may need to replace the membrane keypad or the control panel frame assembly, which comes with a new keypad.

There's a YouTube video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

LG LMVM2055 1000 Watts Microwave Oven - Microwave turns itself


You likely have a shorting membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.


So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or at least leave the door open.

It's better not to use it, but if you do, as always, one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

The service manual is here.

To order Goldstar / L.G. parts, visit Encompass. You'll probably have to call them at 866-779-5835.

They can give you clarification on whether you have to order the membrane keypad separately (see this guide) or the whole front door panel (more costly but much easier).

They can also give you part numbers, which the manual does not have.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

HELLO.

The problem with your microwave's touch pad needs some simple troubleshooting steps to rectify the problem.

1 Check the power supply. Make sure the microwave is firmly plugged into a working electrical outlet and that your wall outlet is active if your home uses outlets controlled by a wall switch. Check your home's fuses or circuit breakers to ensure they have not been tripped. Without power the microwave will not respond to any input.

2 Make sure the parental lock is inactive. Some ovens, like the one shown in the image above, feature a keypad lock to prevent children playing with the controls. Most keypad locks can be cancelled by holding down a button or combination of buttons for a few seconds.

3 Make sure the door is firmly closed. Some microwave ovens will not allow any control panel input if the door is open.

4 Remove the microwave from the power, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in. This will reset the microwave oven if there is a temporary problem with the software.

5 Press the "Stop/Cancel" button several times to cancel the current operation and return the microwave to standby mode. Re-enter your cooking instructions using the keypad as usual.

Reach me for further assist.

Thanks.

Oven stsarts by itself and after about a minute desplays an F2 error random problem has ocurred about 3 times, seems to have started after boiling items on stove under microwave


"F2" means you have a shorting membrane keypad. If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

On KHMS155LS-series models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the "control panel frame assembly" which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.


You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

On the DMT2420, that's a bad bottom door switch, or possibly that switch's mount.

The Keypad is a Circuit.Each of the Function Buttons is a switch. The same "Touch" Techinology as is used of your TV Remote Control Pad or your Telephone. It would appear that your Keypad Circuit is Open, not allowing touch commands to reach the Control Board.The Keypad will have to be replaced. Best done by a Professional. I have seen "Rare" cases of a defective Door Switch causing such symptoms.

Hi\
Well it moslikly the problem is a bad switch , there located insde the unit, it's posible the plastic made like lever that turns the switches on or off is jamed or broken.
To check them unplug the unit , open the cover, with an ohm meter check to see if they turn on or off. Basic electrician rull, most of them don't know this.
If all seem to be ok, double check, It's mostlikly 99% your problem , the other percentage is a bad board cause by a bad keypad or board, witch it's very small.

Regards
Bob
ps if it's the keypad or board like all other 99% of population tuss it out, keep in mind don't complain there to mutch air polution your also a cause of the problem.

Some buttons work, some don't.


The keypad may be bad. Most often they go bad due to moisture from cleaners being sprayed directly on them or steam from the cooktop when the vent fan is not used.

They can also go bad when the unit is stored in an unheated environment where there's a lot of air temperature change (hot during the day, cold at night, etc.)

It may also be some residue on the connections where the keypad plugs into the control board. Unplugging then replugging the keypad can sometimes clean them.

In other cases, a new keypad is needed.
