Question about Frigidaire FMV156DC Microwave Oven
The microwave partially turns on, it lights up and counts down but doesn't actually start working. I would check a fuse but I can't find it. What can I do? It's only a year old!
This is usually a bad door switch or door switch mount.
If it's less than one year old, it's under warranty and you should contact Frigidaire to get it fixed free.
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

I have the same problem with a microwave that is less than 2 years.
I was able to confirm that it was a door switch by starting the microwave like I would normally do when it was working, and then slightly rocking the door switch by slightly pulling the microwave door handle and then slightly pushing it back several times (while the count down was still going on) and found that it started to work briefly confirming it was a bad door switch. Hope this helps someone out there diagnose the problem.
