The contacts on the electronic board inside the oven for the display need to be cleaned. You should be able to get into the microwave from the back and unscrew the board. One side of the board will have a row of contacts that can be cleaned using first rubbing with an ink eraser and then with a q tip dipped in isopropanol (rubbing alcohol).
I lost all contact with the display on my microwave and this really helped get the key functions back.

My microwave oven start button is not working

The key pad is probably worn out or otherwise broken. Unfortunately, to replace the key pad/control board, if it's still in production, usually cost as much as purchasing a new unit. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Our lg stainless steel overthe range microwave oven will not start. When pressing start only says power 100

The touch pad could be the problem. Touch pads are notorious for going bade. the door interlock switches could also be a problem. Check to see if all the pads work if they do it could be just the start pad that is bad.

Touch pad doesn't work

Your touch pad is connected to your board with a ribbon wire, it has probably come loose. Unplug the unit and remove the face plate. Pull it back and you will see the wire, it looks like a ribbon, push it in tight, replace the face plate and it should work properly. I see this happen all the time.

Maytag MMV5186aaq touch pad doesn't recognize touches on all pressure points. I can't even set the clock.

That looks like you are in need of a replacement key pad.
I can't advise where to get one from as I don't know which country you are in.

Maytag Range gives a F3 Code. The oven does not work

F3 usually depicts a front panel fault, a shorted key/touch pad contact is favourite.
Hope this helps.
