We have code F84 coming up on our Electrolux microwave, wall oven. Seems to be affecting the microwave. Any ideas what might be going on?


The F84 code is a communication error between the user interface panel of the microwave and the main control board. This could be the result of a problem with the touch panel's interface board, the main control board or the wiring between them. (The wiring harness can come loose or have a bit of corrosion at the connectors.) The usual recommendation is to check the wiring at the interface board then replace the interface board first. If that doesn't solve the problem, you have to replace the control panel.

If you add a comment with the model number of the unit, I may be able to help you find the parts your unit needs.

I hope this helps.

Hi, we have an electrolux builtin microwave.when on standby it occasionally makes a crackling noise not unlike a laptop or storage device when it looks for data. Microwave runs fine otherwise


You really need to be sure it's not running by itself - even intermittently - because that can cause arcing damage, or even a fire.

If you're not sure, leave the door open or the oven unplugged until you're sure it's not or it's fixed.

You can keep a cup of water in it and check it hourly over the course of a day to see if it coming on and actually heating.

It really shouldn't make any noise when idle except a gentle 60Hz hum.

Please include FULL model number*, FCC ID number*, + detailed symptom information.

EW30MO55HS Electrolux 30"microwave doesn't turn or heat


Good Morning Jody, thank you for your post!

If your Electrolux microwave (EW30M055HS) has power but does not heat, often the possibilities include one of four culprits:

·Power Supply
    ·Plugged into GFI Outlet
    ·Faulty Control Panel
    ·Faulty Magnetron

I always recommend resetting your microwave first. You can do so by unplugging your appliance or flipping the circuit breaker for about 30 seconds and then turn your microwave back on. If your microwave stills does not heat or turn, I would recommend reaching out to a professional or alternatively, visit the manufacturer website for a comprehensive listing of appliance techs in your area.

I have a frigidaire Electrolux gallery series glmv168cqi microwave. The timer counts down, but the oven doesn't turn on. Sometimes when you open the door the fan turns on.


That would be a failing bottom door switch, or its mount.
My help file on door switches is here:
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/doorsw.txt
There's a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Once the control panel has been removed, you can access the door switches for testing and possible replacement.
There should be a technical manual hidden behind the controller or grille, too.

My GE PVM2070 microwave is stuck in DEMO mode. Nothing heats up. Unplugging it, even for an hour, did not resolve the problem.


This would be a controller issue, and sadly, on the 2070-series ovens, GE does not make separate parts available.

So you would have to replace the "control panel subassembly".

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you have any trouble getting the grille off once the screws are removed, slide the hood vent grille to the left about 1/4", then then pull it forward.

On some models there are L-shaped clips that fit into a slot to hold bottom of the vent.


Disconnect the keypad strip as shown in the photo below, remove your smart board, then insert it into the new subassembly.
