Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I just write in about my samsung microwave model ms7796w. I checked the door locks as you suggested for my key pad lock problem. It didn't work. However, I kept the door open and did the 0,2 start and it worked to get the help screen off. Them I went to punch in a number and now I've gotten myself to the demo w help flashing. What should I do now?

Refer to your owner's manual first of course.

Is it possible someone may have sprayed cleaner directly onto the keypad area?

This causes moisture to get into the keypad and sometimes onto the control board.

This could mean that they control panel frame with keypad (membrane switch) would need to be replaced.

Can you give more details on the cleaning?

First of all, it's under warranty. So I would contact Maytag for a free fix.

See http://maytag.com/support/service_parts.jsp

For an out of warranty reply:

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

To lock or unlock the
controls, press and hold
CLEAR/OFF for about
three seconds. When the
control panel is locked,
an “L” will be displayed
to the extreme right.

It sounds like you press STOP two or three times to lock it. Maybe that (or another key) will unlock it.

The lock / unlock procedure will be covered in your owner's manual.

Or you can try a hard reset - unplug it from the wall for one minute, then plug it back in and try again.

If you don't have your manual, you can get one here. (Enter your model number without any spaces)

How do I unlock the key panel


Opening the door while the oven is cooking will greatly shorten the life of the door switches and lead to failure.
Always hit "Stop" first unless the recipe calls for it.
The instructions for the child lock are in the owner's manual.
To set the lock, press Stop/Clear, then hold the "0" pad for more than four seconds. You will hear two beeps and the display will show "LOCKED".

To unlock, hold the "0" pad for more than four seconds. You will hear two beeps and the display will no longer show "LOCKED".

Key pad flashing se . key pad locked pease tell me what to do iam a disabled lady need help please


"SE" error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

You would need to have either the membrane keypad itself replaced, or the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad, or the whole controller.

Part numbers and prices will of course depend on the model number.

Most of the buttons on my Goldstar MV1604SB stopped working


Does the display on your microwave read "Locked"? If so, then the Child Lock feature has been activated. To toggle the lock off, press and hold the Stop/Clear pad for more than 4 seconds. When this feature is active, most buttons are disabled to prevent accidental microwave use.

If holding the Stop/Clear button doesn't work, then I'd suggest there is a problem with the contacts behind the buttons. Sears Parts Direct has the parts diagrams for this microwave here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Goldstar-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-MV1604SB/1366/0123245 . (It's better to replace the control panel then to try to fix it.) Use the part numbers from the list to find price and availability at other sites.

The manual for the MV1604SB is available from Manage My Life: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/17638/GOLDSTAR-Countertop-Microwave-L0521424?brand_name_search=loosening+tight+screws .

I hope this helps.

Microwave does not work nothing on the control pad work the pad just says se


Hello

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.


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.


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


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.


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.

My child locked the microwave pad. How do I unlock it?


The operation manual is available for free download from Samsung at this site: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200305/20030529145700437_MW5592.pdf
The answer to how to lock and unlock is on page 15 of the manual. It's instructions are: 1. Press the '0' button, the display will show: "PRESS 1- DEMO 2-CHILD LOCK"
2. Press the "2" button, the display will show: "PRESS START"
3. Press the start button and the display will show "LOCK" then returns to the time of day.
At this point the microwave can't be used. To unlock, just repeat steps 1-3.
Hope this helps

My mother mistakenly locked her samsung microwave. She can't figure out how to unlock it and she can't tell me what model it is. Can you help?


On a friend's Samsung (she didn't tell me her model number either), you lock the keypad by pressing "0" and then "2". Press the same sequence to unlock the pad. Maybe this will work on her model.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

Otherwise, you may have a shorted membrane keypad.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more free information & help.
