It is likely your microwave was hit by a power surge associated with the lightning strike.

Magic chef MCD1611ST microwave, the display lights up, the time and powerlevel can be set, the light works when the door is open but when i hit start everything shuts off. Any suggestions?


There are a lot of possible causes, but I'd look at the door switches first, and the wiring connectors to them. Make sure the contacts on all the switches are opening and closing.

Microwave wont heat


We would need to know the full model number from the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the microwave, such as the door frame, controller frame, etc.

Please post a new help request with that and more detailed symptoms, such as when it occurs.

When you hit "Start" to microwave, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on?

Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here.

Frigidaire model cfmv156fmc allows programming, lights work but when hitting go wont turn on yet timer is counting down.


If the inside light comes on when you try to cook, but the turntable and internal cooling fan do NOT, then that's a bad bottom door switch or that switch's mount.

See this helpful text file.

If the inside light, turntable, and internal cooling fan DO all come on when you try to cook, but it does not cook, then you have a bad relay or connection on the control circuit board, which we can repair for $39.95. Details here.

We have the service manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Timer works, but no turntable no fan and no heat. Light comes on when I hit start but that is all.


Chances are that the magnetron has stopped working. Unless it is under the guarantee or is a very expensive micro it really wont be worth fixing.

Sienens microwave HFT879 fault


Exactly the same problem over here, but after our house was hit by lightning, so not really surprised about the cause of the problem. If you look closely, you can still see the displays on a very low light level. I can still choose a microwave program, turn the time etc, and see the time changing, but start won't just just work.
