Question about Emerson MW8168B Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Keypad Problem? Upon plugging in the microwave, you get flashing zeros on the clock/timer display. You can initially input an amount of time after pressing the cook button. Upon pressing the start button you get no light, no microwave sound, and no timer countdown. If you decide to set the clock after plugging in the microwave, you will get 'Err' displayed on the clock/timer. I thank you in advance for your attention in this matter.

There may be grease or moisture on the the control circuit board, especially in the are where the keypad strip plugs into the board.

Or there may be a pad stuck on th keypad.

See the owner's manual here in case that might help you.

Otherwise, the controller assembly may need repair, which is usually economical.

    Setting the clock on a microwave what is the last action after setting the time. Everything I've tried results in the error message coming up.

    According to the manual this is how to set clock.

    To set the clock, press "Clock" once or "Timer/Clock" twice (depending on your keypad).
    The colon symbol (:) will flash.
    Enter time of day. The time appears in the window; the colon continues to flash.
    Press "Clock" or "Timer/Clock" again - colon stops flashing; time of day is set.

    If you need the manual it is on link below.

    Good Luck

    GE EMO3000 Over the oven Microwave

    Do you know if the fuse blew again? You may have a problem with the powers supply section that powers the main board. The main board controls the display and receives input commands from the keypad.

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

    Good luck!
