    Have you checked the fuse or circuit breaker in your basement?



    I had the same problem once and the diagnosis was doom and gloom from a repair company. My Grandsons came over to spend the weekend with me, my 5 year old Grandson said "Grammy, my Dad would check that box in your basement that I am not allowed to touch.



    Sure enough, the circuit for the Microwave was tripped.



    For your model visit http://www.frigidaire.com/manuals.aspx and enter your model number. It says to check the power so my guess is it the circuit breaker or fuse on your main panel

HI, this is an unfortunate power board failuer. there has been a major burn out within the capacitor set and a diode as well. you will need to replace the power supply board in this unit asap if possible.

Fridgidaire microwave won't shut off


Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!

I see that you are having difficulties with your Frigidaire microwave not shutting off. This could be a possible issue with your control panel or door switch. I would recommend performing a reset on your microwave and that can help clear out any potential miscommunications. To perform a reset you can flip the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help resolve your issue you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

I shorted out the counter lights on my frigidair microwave. The microwave works but not the lights. I've replaced the bulbs. What next?


The metal base may have fused together from electrical arcing when the old bulb was removed. The entire bulb receptacle (socket) will have to replaced. If you cannot do that yourself, the cost would be excessive. Just live without the light as long as the microwave gets the job done.

My fridgidaire microwave just completely lost all power out of the blue. Could it be a blown fuse in the microwave itself?


Hello,
It very well could be a blown fuse. I assume you checked power at the plug and checked the breaker. Also I assume and over the range micro. To get to the fuse you need remove the grille above the door then you should see a screw holding the control panel in place. Remove that screw and tip the panel out and you should see the fuse ( sometimes two) just inside the cabinet. remember to unplug or turn off the breaker before doing any repairs. you can goto - http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action - to find a parts breakdown and order parts. Good Luck

The problem is in the microwave oven, you have a short in the power supply or it could be a defective door switch, either way the unit needs to be checked out.

Microwave does not cook


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.
