Keypad not responding

Make sure none of the keys are stuck if a mechanical type like a computer keyboard or scratched or dented if a film type keyboard.

Make sure the door is closed completely.

If still not working, unplug the microwave from the oulet for 30 seconds or more to allow any internal microprocessor to be reset, then try again.

That's about the extent of what an end-user can do get the keyboard to work again. If still not working it should be brought to an appliance repair shop for service.

I thought my plate was microwave safe, Well I was wrong lol. It melted to my microwave, is there anything I can do or do I have to buy a new one? It was one of the expensive rotisserie microwaves that...


First try to scratch out the plastic from the surfaces inside the microwave cavity. If that is not possible you will need to replace the parts. Most parts for microwave, including cabinet and casing are available from part sellers. Below a website showing several part sellers. If they do not find your model find a local part seller and call them. You can ask an exploded view of the part needed if you want.

If you need parts or diagrams see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

After disassembly and repair the microwave must be go through a standard radiation leak test, hence the job is better done by a technician.

It is not starting

Many possiblities, but first thing to check is door switch. Unit will not run if door is not closed. Door switch is safe feature. Remove outer casing and check to see if switch is broken or miss alined.

Hello there:
first you need to remove the screws from the back of the microwave that hold on the casing and there might be some on the bottom too. then remove the outer casing
the bulb is under the casing towards the front right corner as you are looking at the front of the microwave

Is my dented microwave safe to use?

Hello carillon553,
If you haven't compromised the door opening or inner compartment, then it is more than likely OK to use. The magnetron ( which generated the microwave energy ) has a waveguide that focuses that energu into the cooking compartment and a small dent to the cabinet normally has no impact on its safety.. Hope that helps..
If you are overly concerned with that, then you would need a technician that has an RF Power Meter to check it.. If it were me, and the dent was small.. I would just use it...

On most new MW ovens, the door will lift off the hinges once the top grille is removed. There are two screws on the top that hold the grille in place.
