Assuming you're using it in the US and it's not set via the controls for operation on 50Hz, then it may just need a hard reset.

To do that, you would unplug it for about 2 minutes, plug it back in, and try it again.

I had the same problem and had to rely on the coffeemaker clock to see what time it was as the microwave would get 15 minutes ahead, drive me crazy and I\'d reset the clock....only to have it happen again.

I tried to ignore it, but the more I tried the more I noticed it ARGH!

Ok, I noticed that there was a plastic (saran wrap) type covering over the whole interface of the control panel. I definitely could not ignore that! so, I picked it off with my thumbnail, reset the clock and the clock has been correct for three days now. And I mean to the second!!! That is the solution.

    The only way this could have been related would be if peeling the shipping protector sheet (probably mentioned in your manual) created a static electricity zap that reset your controller. A ssimple "hard reset" (unluggping for a couple of minutes, then plugging back in) should fix it, as long as it's not in "demo" mode if that feature is present.

    I actually agree, that seems to make sense at least. Thanks for the "Real" solution. LOL

Have frigidaire microwave and. Every time I try to set the clock it goes back to zero's # lfmv164qfa

That model does not apprear to be a valid Frigidaire US model number.

Did you try unplugging for about 5 minutes, then plugging it back in and trying it again?

It would also be helpful if you could describe in step by step detail what happens.

If you need further help, please verify the full model number from the tag / label and contact me via here.

I have aclock on a frigidaire microwave that is loosing time

A defective clock would be the cause, the voltage is regulated by the oven circuit board, so line voltage would rally need to be way off to affect the operation of the clock. Ranges of line voltage here in USA are 110V-120V

Why would the microwave keep running if we just close the door and no time is set?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire microwave continues to run, when you close the door and no time is set. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power. You might need to set your clock before doing anything else. Put a cup of water inside your appliance and try to heat it up. If you are still noticing your microwave continuing to run, even after no time is set, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Sounds like its running, but will not heat

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire microwave, model# MWV150KBA, sounds like it is running but will not heat. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes.

Once power is restored, the first thing you will need to do is set the clock. You will do this by pressing the "Clock" button once for AM and twice for PM, enter in the time, and press the "Clock" button again.

Put a cup of water in for about a minute. If the water does not get warm, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your microwave and determine why it is not heating. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-
