POWER COMES ON WHEN PLUGGED IN

The handle was touchy on our fmv156dca microwave nad you had to wiggle it to work. I replaced the monitor switch and it did not fix it.

The only time it stops when the bottom relay is unplugged. Help PLEASE!

The orignal problem would have been a loose or misaligned door switch or holder on the lower door switch.

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

Page 37 shows the proper wiring and page 34 covers the switch adjustment.

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.

Instead of replacing the switch mount, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

I would recommend replace both the upper and lower switch now. You can order a universal type here for $5 each postpaid.

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

FMV156DCA Microwave starts on its own


Why not unplug it, and plug it in when you need it. It probably cant be mended for less than its worth! I suspect the timer is shot

I need to change the interior light bulb in my Frigidaire over the counter microwave. The model # is FMV156DCA.


Good Morning Evelyn, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Here are some simple troubleshooting tips to help replace the light bulb on your Frigidaire microwave, FMV156DCA.

    ·First, disconnect power to your microwave. This can be done by either unplugging it or at the circuit breaker panel.
    ·To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover (light cover may become very hot, do not touch glass when light is on).
    ·Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent watt bulb available from parts distributor or the manufacturer directly. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. Bulbs larger than 30 watts are NOT recommended.
    ·Close light cover and secure with screw removed in step 2.

    I hope this information proves to be helpful. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.

FMV156DCA turns on, cook indicator lights but not cooking, timer counts down fine too


Hello epinvegas - Try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, then it sounds like the microwave has a faulty magnetron, wiring failure or control board. Contact a professional to assist with the repairs.

Yes, there should be a ceramic (tubular) fuse under the cover on the top side where the power comes into the microwave.
