Question about Frigidaire PLMV169DC Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave dead after power surge.

Any thoughts one the next step to take regarding my frigidaire plmv169dc. We had a power surge from a storm take out several appliances and the microwave seems to have taken the brunt of it. I have changed the internal thermal fuse and still get no response from the unit. When the power surged, the lights went out and the microwave hummed for about a minute and that was it. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    My 4 year old PLMV168CC1 Frigidaire just went completely dead - no display, the fan and lights also don't work. It is hard-wired in back so I cycled the breaker for that circuit with no luck. I also checked the fuse behind the control panel and it is not blown. I sure wish I could fix it rather than replace it. Any suggestions will be appreciated!

A) The fuse you change was the one on top just behind the control board? correct? Not the one on the door hinge side of the microwave. (as is is the Thermal cutout ) Then most likely took out the control board... i would also check the Capacitor and recifier let me know it this helped?

Frigidaire prof. series microwave PLMBZ209GCA not working. Display comes on. No sound (fan). Dont know if microwaving function is working properly or not. Any suggestions?


Two things could have happen to your machine.
One the magnetron is dead and needs replacement.
Second the high tension power which supplies power to the magnetron could have been screwed up and need to be replaced or repaired.
The fact that the fan is not running I suspect it may be a power board issue.

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 have the service / repair manuals for these models and have uploaded them to our site to help you.

They will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly, troubleshooting tips, and part numbers.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.

I would first suspect the C/T fuse or the oven thermal cutout.

Accessing some components for testing will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

The manual covers this as well.

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

Please write back if you need further help.
