SOURCE: My Daewoo microwave is model

Plastic will melt but the door frame is metal and will not. So there is no safety issue here, just looks.
One could replace the door assembly if required. I would leave the door open after convection cooking to let the heat escape without heat build up causing the plastic to mishape.

What is this silver piece in my microwave? what is the result of using the microwave without this piece?

"Iron with aluminum soleplate quickly smoothes out wrinkles"

product overview...
- Combining a simple, classic design with an array of modern conveniences, this powerful iron quickly and easily smoothes out wrinkles. The unit's fabric-select dial and convenient fabric guide make it easy to choose the right amount of heat needed for the job, while its aluminum soleplate creates crisp creases and comes with a pointed tip that works well for getting into pleats, between buttons, and along seams. Other highlights include an "on" indicator light, a thumb-activated steam-surge button, an anti-drip system that prevents water spotting at low temperatures, a pivoting cord, and a stable heel rest. For enhanced safety and peace of mind, the iron will shut off automatically after 30 seconds of inactivity if left on its soleplate or tipped over on its side; if left vertically on its heel rest, it will shut off after 8 minutes.

Nothing on keypad for my microwave works

Be very careful around microwaves they have very high voltage inside them that can be deadly. As for the control panel its very common for grease and oil to get behind the plastic film of the control panel, once it does the buttons will stop working since the grease insulates the contacts. Unplug it from the power, let it sit for 60 minutes to make sure all power from the high voltage caps has dissipated. Get access to the back of the control panel. You will probably have to peel back the control plastic on the front to get behind it. One behind clean all the buttons and contact areas. Reassemble, and it should work.

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
  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.

I have a Kenwood microwave oven which has a plastic film on the inside of the glass door. I have used it like this since new as it was not obvious that a film was stuck on the inside until now as it is...

It should have been removed from new. Much of your foodstuffs could have contained toxic substances that leach from this plastic membrane. But as you are writing to ask then you have survived so far.
Remove it......

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Sharp R-1510 Start Button Not Working

This may not solve your problem, but on my Sharp R315J microwave, the little plastic pin that pushes forward on the inside of the start button, had broken off and it wouldn't start. The Minute Plus button would start the microwave, so I knew the microwave worked, so I tried to find a piece of plastic that I could glue into the start button hole, because the part doesn't exist and you have to buy the whole door for $100 plus shipping. Nothing I could find was small enough, so I started looking for a new microwave.
While ouside doing lawn work I noticed a small bird tail feather and the end looked to be the perfect size. I snipped off the pointed end and then up about 3/8" to make a little rod to replace the plastic one that broke. It fit perfectly!!! I didn't even have to glue the inside end, it stays put even after repeated door opens. This is sturdy material and looks to last a long time. When it wears out, I have a cat, there's always a few feathers around. I hope this saves someone else a hundred bucks, like it did me.

Fan and light buttons pushed in, how do i install new buttons.

I just fixed mine. Same problem.

  1. remove the top vent (like replacing filter) w/ 2 or 3 screws on the top of the unit
  2. Remove the one screw on the top of the clock/control unit.
  3. Remove the clock/control panel by sliding up then out
  4. See circuit board at the bottom for the 3 switches. Hopefully it just popped out of place.
  5. pop it back into place and re-assemble
  6. if it's broken, you'll have to find the replacement part here:
  7. If the actual buttons (black plastic) are broken, you have to replace the whole plastic housing for the electronics. Probably a big project and/or you'd replace the whole bit for hundreds of dollars, but even still, it's a pop-out, pop-in.
Good luck,

Amana microwave touchpad

Well.........Here is what I did. Some buttons did not work. Could not turn on the light, vent, cancel, any of the dumb little "popcorn, potato, beverage" or any of those buttons. I could, however, hit say, 33 and Start and it would cook for 33 seconds. You had to go the full 33 seconds because the Cancel button did not work (trouble if you accidentally entered 3333).

So, took the touchpad box off of the microwave and proceeded to clean all of the contacts on everything that had a contact. I used Isopropyl Alcohol and a Cue-tip to clean everything gently but fully. I paid lots of attention to the contacts on the green plastic "strip" as there was quite a bit of black stuff on the contacts themselves and on the strip. I don't suppose that it was a problem being on the strip as I think that the wires are on the inside of the plastic, but I cleaned it anyways.

The connector that connects the circuit board to the touchpad (green plastic strip) was a little tricky to seat back into the proper location as the plastic connector sort of became a "free agent" and did not want to line up properly. I found that it went easy once I determined that all you had to do was seat the connections into the connector and then seat the clip on top of the whole thing.

Well, I reconnected everything, plugged it back in, and everything worked just fine. My opinion is that the black stuff was either dust that collected and combined with the steam or maybe even some sort of mold or mildew that grew in that nice, warm, moist environment.

I was about to do one of 3 things: 1) Buy a replacement Control Board ($159.99); 2) Buy a replacement Touchpad ($39.99); or buy a replacement microwave ($329.99).

My cost to fix this? $000.00. Try it first if you have a similar problem. Good Luck!

On many models, you press "Stop / Reset" three times.

A hard reset may help: Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If you don't have your owner's manual, you can probably download it (or one that's very close) here:

If that doesn't work, you can contact Panasonic UK at
