How to turn on

Brand new. Plug in. Select power with top button. Turn botton button to number of minutes. Nothing happens. Confirm that electrical outlet is working.
Is there a "ON" button that I need to turn on?

Re: How to turn on

First of all, since it's brand new, it's under warranty. So I would not recommend any attempts at repair.

Do you have the owner's manual? That's the place to start.

If not, you can find it online by entering your model number under "Find Manuals & Guides" here;

Also, at the bottom left of that page is Whirlpool's customer suport phone number if you need it.

Magic Chef microwave model#mco165ub cant seem to turn up the power level. when I hit the power level button it cycles through -20, 0 and +20 but nothing happens when I hit enter.

Try unplugging the unit for a few minutes. The microprocessor on the control panel may have locked up. Leave it unplugged for at least 15 minutes to see if it will reset.

Burns my popcorn constantly. is there a different setting i can put it on?


Solution to your microwave problem is given as below.

* 1 Set your Daewoo microwave on a countertop near an electrical outlet and plug it in. Open the door and place the circular roller guide in the center of the oven cavity, then place the glass cooking tray over it.

* 2 Set your food on a microwave-safe dish and then put the dish on the cooking tray and close the door. Make sure that it latches properly.

* 3 Turn the upper knob to select a power level. Power levels include "Defrost," "Med-High," or "High." If your Daewoo has a touch pad, touch the "Microwave" button once to set the highest power level. Touch it consecutive times to lower the power level.

* 4 Turn the lower knob to set the cooking time. For cooking times less than two minutes, turn the knob up past the two-minute mark, then back to the correct time. For touch pad models, enter in the cooking time with the numerical keys and then press "Start."

* 5 Open the door at any time to stop the cooking and check the temperature of your food. Shut the door to automatically continue cooking, or turn the timer knob to the right to add more time. For touch pads, press the "Stop/Clear" button, then key in a new cooking time and press "Start."

* 6 Open the door when the timer reaches the "Off" position and take out your food.

Our 2006 Samsung Microwave has suddenly ceased to heat anything. The clock works and the turn table goes around, but that's it. We had a couple of power outages just before this happened. Could it be...


Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the microwave. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. Press it when the cooking complete reminder appears on the display.
Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the GE microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.
Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock.

I have a F6 error on my Kitchenaid microwave, model number KHMS155LSS. I unplugged it for 5 minutes. Nothing changed. I closed the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Nothing changed. If I plug it in, it...

F6 on these models means that the cook relay on the control circuit board is shorted, and it is cooking anytime the door is closed.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee.

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.

If you prefer, you can buy a new circuit board (part number 8169733 for $150.27) from the Pros

They're our favorite supplier.

None of the buttons in the Samsung Microwave oven work. There is power but I am not able to use any button on the microwave. Nothing happens when I press any of the buttons.

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.

If it still fails, you probably have a bad membrane keypad.

I'd need the model number to give you more free help or an estimate, so fee free to contact me if you'd like.

Kenmore elite microwave oven displays "Locked" and will not respond

My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.
