Oven quit working on model mv-1320w

That would be a defective door switch, most likely the bottom one.

(It's either the top or bottom switch (not the middle one) and whichever one has thicker wires, not the one with the thinner wires.)

See my help text file on door switches here.

To order other Goldstar / L.G. parts besides door switches, visit Encompass. You'll probably have to call them at 866-779-5835 to get part numbers.

On a goldstar microwave oven model mv-1500mg, after pressing the light button, there was a bang and then no power to anything. I have checked the electrical outlet and there is no problem. Thanks for your...

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

I have a goldstar microwave oven mfg during 1988. Model # ER-76IM. Can you tell me the wattage of this microwave.

I can't find any info on this model probably due to its age, but there should be a data plate or sticker located either (1) on the back, near the cord (2) side (3) inside back or side wall (4) on the door or door jamb of the oven. Failing this, that next step would be to contact Goldstar in the method of your choice from the webpage below:

I hope this helps & good luck!

Goldstar microwave need to change the door frame help!

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

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

Goldstar NV1502 No Heat

You should still have about a 5-year warranty on the magnetron, if that's the trouble.

If everything else works, it's almost certainly a high voltage component, most likely the magnetron or diode, but also possibly the transformer.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:

I would contact LG / Goldstar first. For Goldstar / LG / L.G. help, call 1-800-243-0000 (M-F, 7am-8pm CT, Sat 8-5 CT) and choose the appropriate prompt from the menu or visit

Goldstar Microwave MV1501w

Chances are the panels separate as shown in the photo I have attached below.


Panel replacement can usually be done without removing the door from the microwave.


In cases where it is felt that door removal is necessary, I recommend detaching the door from the hinges.


I generally do not advise removing the hinges from the microwave.


Whenever the hinges are removed, great care must be taken to put them back in the very same position they were in.


Failure to do so can cause microwave leakage, which can cause risk of skin burns, fire, and disruption nearby electronic devices.


By the way, where did you get the part? I'm trying to find a good Goldstar / LG source to recommend.

The most common causes for this (in order) are a defective door switch, door switch mount, or a bad connection or relay on the control panel. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa:
