Question about Frigidaire PLMV169DC Microwave Oven

1 Answer

My work light/night light work, but will not turn off. No matter which button you press, either both will light up or one turns off, but you cannot turn all of the lights off. Seems like a control board issue, but which one do I need?

This sounds like an IC problem on the board. They typically use IC's to switch the lamps on and off. Sometimes the IC's short out and stay closed. I saw this problem a lot on another make in the past.

Your Control Key Pad is a circuit with each function and button a switch. The pad on your TV Remote, and Telephone is no different. The Key Pad is failing, It will only get worse. Determine if you can replace the Touch (Key) Pad. Not the Control Circuit, just the Touch Pad. Sometimes you can get it seperate. It connects by a Flex Cable to the Control Circuit.

My plmv169dcd stopped working,looks like it has no power, but there is power at plug in. is there a reset button>


Not quite enough information. But, there is no reset button. Open unit check fuse. test all 3 door switches. They are the number one cause of problems and can take out the fuse or not. Other than that it will take more trouble shooting to find the problem

Cooking light does not turn off


We see and repair this a lot. The problem is on the controller assembly.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

You can find a video here that shows you how to remove the grille & controller in about 5 minutes.

Microwave Cooktop / Night Light not working


I would check the door switches with a digital meter, set to ohms, disconnect one wire from switch and test for open and short by pressing door switch, if you hit one that tests the same when pressing and releasing, switch should be replaced.

    The display works (clock, mode, etc) I can push


    We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

    At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

    This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

    The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

    Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.
