Front of microwave door scratched

I have a Frigidaire Electrolux under the counter microwave. MFG 1/06 mocel #FM156DCC

The front of the door is scratched. Something abrasive was used on the door during a cleaning. Is there product I could use to polish out the scratches or could I replace the door for cosmetic purposes?

Please advise.

Frigidaire Microwave will not run unless door latch is pushed in half way.

There are usually 3 door interlock switches on most microwave ovens, which are held in place by plastic pieces which are screwed in place from the front of the microwave oven (although you may have to remove or tilt out the top of the control console to see them). Make sure these plastic support pieces are positioned against the front of the microwave oven, and make sure the screws are tight.

Frigidaire Mod: FGMV174KFB Door won't latch

Good Morning Friend,

I understand the door will not latch on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV174KFB. Typically, this would not be a do it yourself repair, as you are working with your microwave, and there are no step by step repair instructions. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your appliance and should be able to fix the latch on your door with ease. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

How do i remove a over the stove microwave?

On a 1-10 scale- this is a 2.
place a cardboard box on the stove to support the microwave once it is free.
Remove power cord from the outlet in the cabinet over the microwave.
In the cabinet over the microwave, locate the 2 mounting screws.
Loosen each one about 6 turns- the microwave should drop down in the front by about 1/2 inch.
Once loose, you can remove both screws completely and allow the front of the oven to rest on the cardboard box.
While supporting the front of the microwave,have a helper remove the cardboard box.
Tricky part...while supporting the front - angled slightly down, lift hard under the rear of the microwave and pull toward you.
Have a helper feed the power cord through the upper cabinet bas as you bring the microwave toward you and slightly down.
Place the microwave on the counter- with a towel in place to prevent scratching the counter.
remove the rear-wall mounted support bracket.

I have a frigidaire Electrolux gallery series glmv168cqi microwave. The timer counts down, but the oven doesn't turn on. Sometimes when you open the door the fan turns on.

That would be a failing bottom door switch, or its mount.
My help file on door switches is here:
There's a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Once the control panel has been removed, you can access the door switches for testing and possible replacement.
There should be a technical manual hidden behind the controller or grille, too.

Where is the fuse on my microwave Electrolux PLMV169DCD located?

We have three service manuals covering the PLMV169 series, which you can download free:

They're all pretty similar.

You can usually find parts from the Pros here.

If not, contact Electrolux at the phone number on the front of the service manual.

It may be the C/T fuse (thermal fuse located above the magnetron) or the oven cavity thermal cutout, located on the top of the cavity.

Accessing these two parts for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Electrolux / Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions

It may also be that there was a power surge which damaged the control circuit board, activating the built-in surge protection.

This is not resettable. The circuit board has to be repaired. We do that for $39.95, details here.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
