Lg microwave reset button?

Then the keypad showed "locked" when you touch any button. My husband unplugged the microwave. Now the keypads work again, but it will not heat. Is there a reset button? Any other suggestions?

SOURCE: GE JVM1540 keypad only works for some buttons

Membrane keypads are not very durable, and do fail after a relatively short time.

The only method is to replace them as a spare part.

If this has a controller that runs a microwave and an oven, then the problem F2 means a temperature related fault such as a bad temp sensor / thermostat or a defect in the control board. If it's just a microwave, then the problem is likely a failing keypad. In many cases, those can be replaced economically. If you repost with your exact model number (62622 is not a complete model number) then we can advise you further and more specifically.

How do I fix the key pad of a Kenmore microwave model 401.80084700?


I don't know of anyway to repair the keypad. Usually replacement (of the keypad/control console) is the only option. But you might want to remove the ribbon cable that connects the keypad to the control board behind it, clean it with a degreaser (like Fantastic or 409), dry it, and re-insert it, and then try again. (Remember to unplug the microwave oven first before you try that!)

The "6" pad on the microwave's membrane keypad is shorted.

If this is under warranty, refer to your owner's manual to contact Frigidaire customer service about finding a local servicer to fix it under warranty.

If it's out of warranty, looking at the retail price of this model, it may not be economical to have it repaired.

If you or a friend can get a new keypad from Frigidaire at a decent price, you can refer to a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

My microwave GE model # JVM1440WH04 spacemaker has no heat coming out of it. My husband heated microwave lasagna in it last, everything works except for the heat, any solutions?


Push the microwave door tightly closed. The computer will not start cooking until the door is closed for safety reasons. Some models of microwave will give a warning on the screen if the door is open.
2

Ensure you have programmed a heat setting, entered a cooking time and pressed the "Start" button on the microwave's keypad. Check that the microwave is not set to "Defrost" mode.
3

Unplug the microwave and wait for one minute. This measure will reset the microwave's internal computer if it has frozen or scrambled. Plug the microwave back in and try again.
4

Ensure the keypad lock mode is inactive. Most microwave ovens have a lockout feature that prevents children from starting the microwave while unsupervised. Lockout mode is usually deactivated by holding down the button that bears a padlock symbol

Touch screen displays is lit up , but will not respond by touching any of the promts. I have unpluged the unit hopeing to reset no change. unit was working fine the day before.


HELLO.

The solution is to troubleshoot the microwave as explained below.

1 Check the power supply. Make sure the microwave is firmly plugged into a working electrical outlet and that your wall outlet is active if your home uses outlets controlled by a wall switch. Check your home's fuses or circuit breakers to ensure they have not been tripped. Without power the microwave will not respond to any input.

2 Make sure the parental lock is inactive. Some ovens, like the one shown in the image above, feature a keypad lock to prevent children playing with the controls. Most keypad locks can be cancelled by holding down a button or combination of buttons for a few seconds.

3 Make sure the door is firmly closed. Some microwave ovens will not allow any control panel input if the door is open.

4 Remove the microwave from the power, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in. This will reset the microwave oven if there is a temporary problem with the software.

5 Press the "Stop/Cancel" button several times to cancel the current operation and return the microwave to standby mode. Re-enter your cooking instructions using the keypad as usual.

please let me know the outcome..

thanks.

My keypad is nonresponsive. I unplugged the unit once, and was able to reset it and it worked for one heating. 2 hours later the keypad is now unresponsive again. Upon unplugging/replugging it again shows...


The membrane keypad has failed.

On some models, you can replace the membrane keypad. I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

On other models, the keypad is only available as part of the whole control panel frame. It's easier, but a little more expensive.

You may choose to do either yourself, or have it done for you.

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

Let us know here if you need further free help.

Microwave model number: 721.80593402. There seems to be a problem with the control pad. It will start but the stop/clear button isn't working....


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes and try again.

If it still doesn't work, then your membrane keypad has failed.

If the keypad is available separately and
you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

If this model's keypad is not available separately, you would need to order the control panel frame, which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

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.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

I have a GE Microwave and while pushing button the keypad locked and i got the message CONTROLS ARE LOCKED - how do i get out of this? I can't clear it and the buttons don't respond to touch. Kelley


If a hard reset (unplugging power for 2 minutes)does not fix it, then you have a failed membrane keypad.

To give you any further free help, we would need your full model number form the tag in or on the unit.

Please make a new post with that your full model number and symptoms.

I have samsung microwave model number ME 1240SC. my front panel touch screen is not working properly, when i press the keys it is not working. so i think i need to replace the touch screen. so please...


That model does not user a touch screen, it actually uses a standard membrane keypad.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes. Then try it again.

If it's still not responding, I would suspect your membrane keypad has failed.

Is it possible that some spray cleaner accidentally got into the controls?

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

And I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

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.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

If you wanted to order a new membrane switch / keypad, the part number is DE34-00145F and you can order it from the Pros here. They're our favorite supplier.

Otherwise, this is a pretty standard 1200W microwave, and you may find it better to simply replace it instead of repairing it.
