Question about Frigidaire PLMV169DC Microwave Oven

1 Answer

One of my boys slammed the microwave door this morning and now the inside light does not go out and the lower control buttons such as the Start and the One Minute buttons do not work. I do not think the top pre-programmed buttons work either such as popcorn and such. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: I have frigidaire model plmb209dca microwave (about 4 years old)

You have a failing membrane keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.

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

SOURCE: Control buttons don't work.

The touch panel most likely just needs to be replaced. Without any extensive testing, you can order a new panel from repairclinic.com and if replacing that doesn't fix the problem, then the panel can be returned within 30 days, though it should from what you have said so far.

Let me know how this works out for you.

Sharp R-530ES microwave oven stopped working


You have a bad secondary interlock (lower door switch) or its mount is damaged or out of alignment.

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

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.

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

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

Whirlpool microwave does not switch on - no power


A problem with a door switch or door switch mount (like this one) will cause the fuse to blow when the door is opened or closed.

There may be a second fuse inside.

You also need to check the door switches and latches to be sure all the debris is out.

There is often a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

START BUTTON


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.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

If you think the problem is on the control panel, which we repair these nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

Microwave won't start


If you're saying that the inside light won't come on when you opoen the door, then you probably have a bad door switch, most likely the upper one. The most common causes are opening the door while it's cooking instead of hitting the STOP pad first, broken switch mounts, and damage to or slamming the door. These switches are locally available at appliance parts companies. I have a helpful text file with critical safety information and info on diagnosing and replacing door switches. You can find it by doing a search on Yahoo.com (not Google) for microwave doorsw.txt
