    had the same problem. There are two switches that engage when the door is closed. One of them is bad. Sorry to say but you will need to either do this your self or get a repairman. The switch needs to be replaced. This appears to be a very common problem with these Frigidaire microwaves. Will cost about $125 (parts/labor) to get it fixed if you get a repairman. It is not the clock.

    This is similar to my problem. I have a Samsung microwave. Everything lights up but it doesnt let you do anything. I opened the microwave and everything seems to be in its place. I unplugged many wires and plugged it back again in case it "resets" itself but no luck. Abhishek, how do you reset the timer? Perhaps I should try this.

    Thanks!

I shorted out the counter lights on my frigidair microwave. The microwave works but not the lights. I've replaced the bulbs. What next?


The metal base may have fused together from electrical arcing when the old bulb was removed. The entire bulb receptacle (socket) will have to replaced. If you cannot do that yourself, the cost would be excessive. Just live without the light as long as the microwave gets the job done.

My Frigidaire oven model PLMV169DCD has developed a defect


The only real issue with the control board that could cause that is a failing relay or bad connection, both of which I can repair on a control board for $54.95, which includes insured return shipping.

The first thing I would do is test the outlet. A toaster or hair dryer are good devices to use.

A microwave must be on its own breaker, or at least not on the same breaker as a high-current device (stove) or a device that causes spikes on the line (fridge, freezer).

It's possible you have a failing magnetron or high-voltage transformer, but I would need to discuss it to narrow it down.

For free additional DIY help and details, feel free to e-mail me directly from my site. Remind me of your full model number and detailed symptoms.

Where is the fuse on my microwave Electrolux PLMV169DCD located?


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

http://www.microwavedisplay.com/plmv169dcc_sm.pdf
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/glmv169_plmv169_sm.pdf
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/glmv169_plmv169_late_prod_sm.pdf

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
here.

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.

How do I unlock the key pad? The display shows locked and I don't know how it locked.


Here you go.

The Child Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent
unintended use of the microwave oven.
When the control is locked, only the Vent Fan and Light pads will
function.
To Lock/Unlock Control: The microwave oven and Timer must
be off. Touch and hold START for 5 seconds until 2 tones sound
and a lock icon appears on the display. Repeat to unlock and
remove the lock icon from display.

How do I get to the control panel of my Frigidaire PLMV169DCD?


When you open the microwave door, on the right side should be two philips head screws. Unscrew those to remove plastic cover and there will be control panel behind which is secured with 4 screws.

Fan Button doesn't work


HI, in most cases, the button will be fine. there is an error code that will illuminate on the control if the touch pad starts to malfunction(sticking buttons). this is more likely an issue that concerns the integrity of the fan motor. have it tested. replace it if found to be defective.
