If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective.

Microwave runs for 5 seconds then shuts down displaying F9 HELP


If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the microwave display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad

  1. Controller is confused A power surge or random non-reproducible action of the universe may have resulted in the controller's program ending up in an infinite loop. Pull the plug for a minute or two to reset it.
  2. Defective Interlock switches This can result in the controller thinking the door is open and ignoring you.
  3. Cleaning Cleaning solutions (spray cleaner) may have gotten inside and shorted out the touchpad or controller. If this happens remove the touchpad, let it air dry for a few days, and then attach it back on the microwave.
  4. main control board to ensure that a shortage has not occurred. If the part is defective then it will need to be replaced to prevent continual shut offs. If this is not the issue, the next step would be to check for a faulty touchpad.
  5. Touchpad/Control panelIf the control board is not the issue and your microwave continues to shut off after running for only a few seconds, the next thing to check is your touchpad, which is also known as a control panel. Although uncommon for this issue, symptoms are usually that the display and some buttons are working properly; however, when selected some buttons are not functioning. If this is the case the touchpad will need to be replaced.

LG touchpad doesn't work


use the common sense,logically, fix it. God bless you
a stuck key or non-responsive key, most of the time you will have to replace the keypad for this microwave oven repair. If your keypad is connected to your control board by a flat ribbon wire, try disconnecting it and clean the silver contacts with an ordinary pencil eraser. After cleaning, plug it back in and try it. If it doesn't fix it, replace the keypad unit. Some units actually have keypad tests to confirm your diagnosis of a bad key.If your keypad and control is the same unit, replace that unit. Another note, unlike stove/oven keypads and controls, most microwaves do not have error codes or tests to distinguish whether it is truely the keypad or control. Most of the time, it is the keypad that needs replacing, but a small percentage of the time it can be the control. Check the tech sheet if they can point you to the right part.

I have a Sharp model R-1610 Microwave. The work/night light does not work. I"ve changed the bulbs.


Does it operate with a membrane-type touchpad?

These things seem to be problematic as the microwave ages.

They are usually replaceable, and the cost is not great. I just installed a new touchpad on an LG, and it cost $25.00 plus shipping.

Ge microwave HVM1540DN1BB button control pad stopped working


I am not familiar with the Whirlpool microwaves; however, I just had the same problem with an LG over the range microwave. Several of the positions on the touchpad quit responding to touch. In our case, it was the touchpad itself that was the problem.

The touchpad on our microwave was held in place with adhesive. We pulled it off and replaced it with a new touchpad. Everything works now. The only complication is getting to the connector which carries the signals from the touchpad to the microwave controls. We had to remove and dissassemble the door to get to that connector.

The touchpad cost about $26.00.

We have an LG over the range microwave and boiling a pot of water on the stove apparently shorted out the key pad. The numbers don't work and the vent and light buttons work intermittently. Note that this...


We have an LG LMVM2075SB over the stove microwave that we purchased in December, 2007. A few weeks ago, several of the positions on the touchpad stopped working.

I assumed that the problem involved the touchpad itself. I ordered a new one (Part number MFM37134802 - $25.30 plus shipping), and we installed it today. This solved the problem.

The installation was not simple. The door has to be removed and disassembled to enable you to get to the connector that connects the touchpad with a circuit board. We heated the old touchpad with a hair dryer and pulled it off (after disconnecting the connector). The new touchpad comes with an adhesive backing. You have to be very careful in placing it because the adhesive is very strong. The touchpad fits in an identation, so the placement of the new one must be perfect.

Failure of the touchpads on these LG models seems to be a common problem. It sounds like a design problem.
