SOURCE: Erratic microwave timer dial

You can visit LG's site here and pick your region, then your country.

Then look in the red strip near the center top for the Service Centers link.

They may sell parts in case you or a friend want to do it yourself, but if not, they certainly can do the repair for you.

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty, I would think.

SOURCE: My LG LRMP1270ST microwave oven stopped working in

The main fuse has blown in the microwave, you also have secondary problem that sounds like the magnetron has failed, but there are two other parts to consider, the high voltage capacitor and diode work in conjunction with the magnetron to heat the food. The repairs could run as high as a new microwave oven.

Graetz microwave does not heat, fan & timer work

If everything appears to be working as normal but there is no heat when microwaving then the most likely problem is you have a faulty Magnetron & would need to get this replaced. Try to get an estimate first as sometimes the cost of repair can outweigh the cost of a new microwave.

Sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove

see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    My microwave oven from LG MG 604 W has now starting problem, when we open the door the light is on and even the display is okay we can set the timer but when we press the start button it doesn't start...

    The owner's manual should tell you what that symbol means.

    If for some reason you don't still have yours, you can download it here.

    I would suspect a bad door switch or door switch mount.

    You should see my text file on door switches for more information.

    You can order LG parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

    A "plastic" square has become

    That is a waveguide and the cover.
    If you let steam of food particles enter the microwave will soon be no good as it will burn a hole in the aerial assembly.
    The cover must be clean and fits as you say with a stainless steel screw.
    Hope this helps.

    Round soft key OXO Timer I need to change the clock time their model # is 1061978

    Operating functions:
    To set the clock, press and hold the clock/timer button for three seconds. A clock icon will appear on the left side of the screen. Input the time using the numerical buttons and then click the clock/timer button to save the time.
    To set the timer, press and release the clock/timer button so that the display shows all zeroes. Enter the desired time using the keypad. Press start/stop to start the countdown. The countdown may be paused by pressing the stop/start button and resumed by pressing the same button again.
    When countdown is complete, timer will beep continuously for thirty seconds and display will flash. Timer will then beep every ten seconds for ten minutes until the stop/start button is pressed.
    This timer will also time up to time activities. To start count up, press clear/memory so timer reads all zeroes. Press stop/start and a plus sign will appear on the right side of the screen as the timer begins counting up.

    Microwave works but does not cook (does not heat up). Everything else seems to work properly.


    what this means is that there have been a disconnection on the wire of the element (heater)

    what you need to do to fix up the problem is to unscrew the oven then trace the wire down to the element power point and fix it back to it position

    please make sure all form of power supply is OFF when carry out this function

    Good lock and thanks for using fixya.

    Anytime you have arc welding in the microwave, its not a good sign. You may have burned out the megatron tube. The red lights are obviously warning lights. If you canot contact the mfg for the correct reading of these lights, you may want to get another unit.

    No display, no power, complete blackout

    Yes, the fuse is bad. Be sure to use a ceramic fuse of the same current (Amps) rating.

    They're available at appliance parts stores, hardware stores, Lowe's, Wal-Mart, etc.
