Re: at times some buttons dont work

This may sound crazy but I had one do the same years ago. I cleaned the touch board with glass cleaner and would work fine until got dirty again. Won't hurt to try!

Microwave stopped working

Probably a problem with the door latch safety system. This happens every so often with our microwave, which is over 25 years old, and otherwise works perfectly.
If yours is new, it may still be under warranty. If not, there are places that specialize in fixing microwave ovens.
If it is an older, or less expensive oven, it might be time for a new one.

Hi there, I've just moved into a new apartment and the Samsung Timesaver microwave seemed to be working fine yesterday, but it has been beeping at odd times for no reason. I turned the power off to stop...

Hi, this is usually a bad touchpad. The way to tell for sure is to kill power to the unit, take the control panel down and unplug the ribbon connector that connects touchpanel to the clock. Put it back together and reapply power. The clock will just sit there blinking and, obviously, the buttons won't work, either. if the beeping stops, then the touch panel is bad. And If it still beeps, then you have a bad clock.

I have a Shapr Microwave Convection model R-8880(W) T which is flashing after being stored for 3 months. It won't work, the timing light just keeps flashing on andoff 88-888. Does it have a reset...

Try pushing / stop reset first. The setting the time by pushing clock button .... punch in the time and push the clock button again. Just respond here if that does not work. 88-8888 is what you get after your first plug it in. Sometimes you will get PF if you unplug it and plug it back in. If that appears push stop / reset / clear. (Same button)

Microwave won't start

Did someone recently clean the front panal with a wet cloth or spray it with cleaner? Was it near a very steamy source? If the touch panal gets moisture between the layers it will no longer work. Some times it will dry out eventually and start to work again. Many times replacing the panal is the only fix.

My microwave panel is not working.

Sometimes if the door switches are faulty then the touch panel may not respond. There are usually 3 switches, and I'd recommend if one if faulty replacing all of them as a set. Otherwise it may be a Control Panel fault.

Our microwave stopped working suddenly. It's a GE JVM1330 and was made in 1996. The buttons on the control panel work fine, and the light inside turns on. We can enter a cook time, and it counts down as if...

It's one of the micro-switches (3) that are part of the interlocking safety circuit. I actually took my switch apart and fixed it, but 99% of those out there would (and should) replace the switch.

Microwave stopped working...

If it's still under the 12-month warranty, I'd contact Daewoo customer service:

Even if it's not they may be able to help you. That page also has a link to help you find a local authorized servicer and download the owner's manual if you don't have yours.

I'd say you have a bad membrane keypad.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

At times some butons don't work

You may have a bad keypad, which in many cases can be replaced.


A bad keypad may be worn out due to age, damaged, or it may have gotten wet or otherwise contaminated.


Moisture and contamination can be caused by not using the fan when boiling on the stove top (for over the range models), direct spraying of cleaners, by storing the microwave in an unheated garage or shed, or infestation.


I warn my customers to never spray cleaner directly onto the microwave keypad, since the liquid can get inside and "lock up" or even ruin the keypad or controller.
