    9 is the only number that works. It will beep every once and a while. It will not turn on.

I would suggest unplugging the oven from the wall for a few minutes, then plugging it back in. If it still has a problem, you may need a new keypad, which can be had here: http://www.samsungparts.com/search/search.asp 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. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk Post back here if you need more help.

If you don't want to roll the unit out, then turn the circuit breaker off in the panel. The quick disconnect does not reset the electronics for the compressor. Try that and see what happens.

The display screen has gone blank on my 721.80802400 Kenmore Elite. Of course since it is dial operated, this means we have basically lost all functionality other than adding time in 30sec increments. ...


The main displays are not fused, sorry, Also the display itself is not wired to the baord. It is either soldered on or has a conductive rubber pad under it to bring power to the crystal. Get your model number and either call sears or another parts company for a price and availability on the main circuit board.

The LCD display is not showing the numbers correctly. It looks like the numbers are missing "lines", like an 8 can look like a 3, the 8 can look like a 0, etc. Any ideas?


It is the control board that needs to be replaced. The LCD display is connected to the board. If this is an above the stove microwave the problem was caused by the steam from boiling water on the stove top. you can prevent it from happening again by using the vent fan consistantly.

Frozen Display


It may be that the internal firmware has become corrupt, or there is a fault on the main processor board, or with some other area that is effecting the system processor, and thus the system is not able to function properly.

Call the service rep for your microwave oven and bring it in for an estimate.
