Microwave won't work; timer word stuck on screen

My microwave stopped working today while on timer.  Now only the word "timer" appears on the screen, none of the buttons work, no power, even the light doesn't come on when you open the door.  For the last few months, occasionally the time would disappear from the display after you used the microwave, but I just simply reset the time, now this!

The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

I have a Salton micorwave oven (MW-2027P). The timer works but the cook setting will not start. There is also no light on the inside when I open the door.

I had this exact same problem with my salton microwave! Even tried taking it back to the store, but with no reciept there was little they could do. Anyways try jiggling the clasps on the side of the the door, the ones that connect it to the microwave. Mind you don't jiggle too hard. Now firmly close the door, you should hear a distinct click. Now try it! The light only works when the microwave is on. The microwave won't work unless the door is closed properly and my problem was the claps were stuck! I hope this helps.

I have a Jvm1090aw. After using the convection oven the microwave will not function. Is this a moisture sensor or?

I have a jvm1090aw microwave oven and for some reason it just stopped working. It will still count down the timer but it won't light up and turn on. Also there is a small microwave icon flashing at the bottom right of the screen. Any ideas? Today I tested it again and started it for 30 seconds. The first 8-10 seconds nothing but silent counting down then it turned on for the last 20 seconds. It then turned on again when I tried it immediately after that but nothing 5 minutes later.

Microwave timer counts down super fast

try unplugging it for about 15 minutes. if that doesnt work, you might as well get a new one. i fix everything myself for just the cost of parts and i have found that what parts cost for a microwaves, its cheaper just to buy a new one.

I have Problem with my microwave

it may be just a fuse , but if the fuse inside the microwave blows again then there is something else wrong and it would need to be tested to find the problem and fix it
so the fuse inside needs to be check and or replaced and if the microwave powers and works ok after replacing the fuse , then the other fuse was just bad

Help, my Panasonic NNA724M Combination Oven will no longer microwave. I can set the microwave going but after 20ish seconds the microwave stops and timer is replaced by the clock, without any audible...

This is an inverter model, and when they stop after 20 seconds, it usually means a problem in the high voltage section, either the inverter or the magnetron.

If you don't have experience troubleshooting high voltage inverters, I recommend calling a pro.
