Question about Goldstar Microwave Ovens

Goldstar microwave model # MA 680RV

Model # MA 680RV
the start function on the touch pad doesn't work. All the other touch spots seem to work. This is a small size micro that I would replace if I could find one small enough 18.5w x9.25h x12.0 deep. I expect that this model is fairly old.

SOURCE: My Touch pad does not work, can someone help?

It sounds like the keypad is worn out. The fact that you can get them to work sometimes by what direction you push on them, tells me that the contacts are not working correctly.

Did you have this problem prior to the fuse blowing or did it start after you replaced the fuse?

I don't believe the fuse blowing is related to the keypad problem. I also don't believe that you have a microprocessor problem because you say that the function buttons work but the number keys don't work right. If the microprocessor was faulty, it would not be able to read any of the keys.

The fact that the number keys are not working doesn't surprise me. When you go to cook something, you will press the number keys several times, while only pressing start or stop once. This is why your number keys have worn out first. These keys have a limited number of cycles (presses) and it sounds like its time for a new keypad.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck!

- Jim

SOURCE: Sharp R-1450 microwave

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

On these, it's usually a broken tab on the upper switch holder.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

That sounds like what's happening when you hold the Start pad - maybe you're moving the frame and chassis enough to help it work.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

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

You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Could be the high voltage capacitor or the diode. Both can easily be checked with the proper ohm meter. It could also be the magnetron tube which you really cannot check. Bill

Buttons on microwave


testing every step and fix it. God bless you see the diagram attached

Microwave Buttons Don't Work
Touchpad and Control Panel


If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective.
Touchpad


If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
User Control and Display Board


If the microwave buttons don't work the user control and display board are most likely defective and will need to be replaced. If some of the buttons work and some don't, it is more likely a touch pad problem and the touch pad will need to be replaced.
Main Control Board


If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced. If some of the buttons work the touch pad is likely the problem. If none of the buttons work the problem may be in the main control board.1_24_2013_5_23_47_pm.gif1_24_2013_5_24_54_pm.jpg

My Goldstar MA 781M microwave has a "mica" like


That sheet is called the Waveguide Cover and its function is to stop debris and food entering the aerial and magnetron.
Replacement is essential and must be made of mica.
It can be purchased from a dealer at a reasonable cost.
Google the manufacturer and find a dealer.
Hope that helps.

Help-


If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor (and fuse).

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer (and fuse).

If you or a friend 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

For parts, you can contact LG at 1-800-243-0000 or http://us.lge.com/support/support.jsp
