I need to remove the door to a Frigidaire Microwave so I can replace the handle. How do I do this?


Normally you have to separate the door panels and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Frigidaire microwave not heating over the range


Hello

Try to cook something simple such as microwave popcorn. If the unit does not light up or turn on, check the outlet with another appliance to make sure the outlet is functioning correctly.


Check the fuses or circuit breakers in you house. If the outlet does not work after testing it with another appliance, try to plug the microwave in a different outlet.


Check the hinges and door hooks to make sure the door is closing properly. Look to see whether a small piece of food is clinging to the door, preventing it from closing all the way. Check the release mechanism and the rotating plate to make sure they can move freely as well.


Plug in the microwave and start it a the bag of microwave popcorn inside. If the lights go on but it is not producing heat, listen and try to hear whether the unit sounds the way it usually does. If it does not, there might be problems with the circuit board. This will need to be repaired by a certified Frigidaire professional.


Check the display that shows the time and power. If the display is flickering but it does not alter the operation of the microwave, it is not a problem. If, however, the lights flicker and your food is not heating, there may be a problem in the microwave cabinet.


Listen for buzzing sounds. If there is a buzzing sound and no heat is being produced, you may have to get a new magnetron, power diode, or high-voltage capacitor. These can be purchased from a Frigidaire retailer.


Look at the handle on the door. The most common complaint about all models of the Frigidaire microwave, according to Consumeraffairs.com, was cracked or broken door handles. Frigidaire will replace faulty handles while the oven is under warranty. In many cases, they will replace the handle even after the warranty expires for a "reasonable" amount of time.

Broken handle on over the range microwave

FMT148GPB2- Frigidaire Microwave had burnt plastic smell and stopped heating. All LED display, fan, and buttons work. Any suggestions?


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Door Handle


If at all possible try getting an exploded image break down to see what needs to happen, basically you have two things in your way one is the "choke"...the large black rectangle on the inside of the door this has to be pryed off carefully all the way around and lifted off, pocket knife works great to get it started. next you will have the front door assembly snapped onto the mesh screen and frame of the door itself. Once you have seperated the front door you will see the screws for the handle, DONT OVERTIGHTEN these screws when you reinstall.
