The keypad has failed, and that's usually economical for a do-it-yourselfer.

It would need a new "control assembly switch/mem (wht)" which is otherwise known as the control panel frame assembly with membrane keypad.

It's reference number 1 on diagram 2, the control panel.

Ironically, the white version runs about $160 but you can save about $55 by ordering the bisque or stainless steel version.

You have a stuck button on the keypad.  With the cost to replace the part I would replace the microwave.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.

Maytag MMV5000 stopped working


If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open. Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

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

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

Microwave not working


Found this Samsung model problem in the Welbilt section but will try to help just the same. Hope you find it.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

You can download your owner's manual here:
http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200303/20030324114252562_DE68_00064C-02.pdf

I always recommend that users spray the cleaner on a soft cloth (not on the keypad itself) then wipe the control panel off.

Also, I always recommend non-ammonia cleaners since ammonia can crack and damage plastic.

Otherwise, the spray can get into the controls and lock it up or make it act odd.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

The keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.

You can order a new keypad (membrane switch) here:

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

LG LMVM2055SB over the range microwave keys not working


Is it possible someone may have sprayed cleaner directly onto the keypad area?

This causes moisture to get into the keypad and sometimes onto the control board.

This could mean that they control panel frame with keypad (membrane switch) would need to be replaced.

Can you give more details on the cleaning?

E4 normally indicates a problem with either the keypad or a sensor. Since the oven is resetting, it may be the keypad or even the control circuit board. Below is my info on keypads, which may help, followed by more info: You may also have a bad keypad, which in many cases can be replaced. KEYPAD TROUBLE A bad keypad may be worn out due to age, damaged, or it may have gotten wet or otherwise contaminated. Moisture and contamination can be caused by not using the fan when boiling on the stove top (for over the range models), direct spraying of cleaners, by storing the microwave in an unheated garage or shed, or infestation. I warn my customers to never spray cleaner directly onto the microwave keypad, since the liquid can get inside and "lock up" or even ruin the keypad or controller. Apply an alcohol-based cleaner (such as the purple kind) to a cloth (since paper towels can scratch) and gently wipe it off. I suggest to my customers that they NEVER use any ammonia-based cleaner (like the blue stuff) on a microwave, since the ammonia will crack and distort polycarbonate plastics. DISCONNECTING AND CONNECTING THE KEYPAD 1. The keypad connection is the green or blue translucent plastic strip that plugs into a connector near the edge of the control circuit board. 3. There are two tiny tabs (one on each side) on the hood of the connector that you can gently pull up on to unlock the connector. Use equal and gentle fingertip force when pulling up. 4. The old keypad strip will lift out. 5. Put the new keypad strip in, making sure both sides are down fully. (If you are not installing a new keypad, clean yours with a pencil eraser or a soft cloth and alcohol.) 6. While holding the strip down, push the connector hood back down to lock it. -- If your keypad (membrane switch) is bad, you should be able to get one here: http://www.samsungparts.com/search/search.asp If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk If you still have questions, please post again.
