Take off the case. You'll see two prongs on the door. If they are out of adjustment.And don't trip the contacts. nothing will work. Theres nothing mech on the turntable, the micowaves make it turn. Just make sure it turns freely,and is clean.

SOURCE: display panel works but no heat, no fan, turn table doesn't turn

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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 only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Sadly popcorn kills more microwave ovens than peiple imagine. You can get an estimate on a repair but I believe you will probably decide in the end to replace it. Same exact thing happened to me............expensive popcorn!!

It could be the plastic coupler part #942560. Remove your glass tray and lift up the plastic piece in the middle. It slides off of the motor. If it is broken that is your problem.

My Frigidaire microwave model PLMV169DCB turn table stop working & wont heat up


Thank you for your inquiry, Justin!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire microwave is not turning and it has stopped heating up. It sounds like the motor, magnetron, or control panel may need to be replaced inside of your microwave. This could also be a miscommunication within your microwave and a reset could help clear it out. You can reset your microwave by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If that does not help correct your issue I would suggest contacting a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

No heat --is a failed front electronic panel or

My microwave won't heat


The real clue here is strangely enough the table not turning.

All units have a switch in the side (usually the right side) of the cabinet--when door is opened it allows the unit to work but will not heat or the table (usually both) will not work.

It has to be got at from the inside of the unit--little plastic holder with the switch which looks like a leaf switch.

What I have seen several times (including a unit I own) is that from countless opening and closing the door the holder may break or even melt and the contacts on the switch no longer are in position to work when door is open.

The purpose of such a switch is simple---it prevents the unit from being used if the door is OPEN.

Not a hard or expensive repair

Turn table won't turn on ewave microwave oven


Almost certain if microwave still heats a bad motor or gear issue inside the unit--if unit will not heat the safety switch in the side that the door engages is the cause of the wheel or platter not turning--prevents unit from use if door open.
