When plugged in display lights up with all 3's or all 8's 8's

When plugged into AC these numbers come up 3333 or 8888. It cannot be reset and the clock cannot be set. Nothing works, however the interior light comes on when the door is opened.

The keypad is defective most likely with this error and not worth replacing or fixing. This microwave has had a ton of problems associated with it including this one and I would recommend getting a new microwave since they are relatively cheap to buy and you would be better off. Let me know how this turns out.

Hi there,

1. Disconnect power for at least 30 seconds.
2. Re-apply power and observe for at least one minute.
3. If code re-appears, replace control board (also called ERC or clock).

Good Luck!!

Thanks

My plmv169dcd stopped working,looks like it has no power, but there is power at plug in. is there a reset button>


Not quite enough information. But, there is no reset button. Open unit check fuse. test all 3 door switches. They are the number one cause of problems and can take out the fuse or not. Other than that it will take more trouble shooting to find the problem

Kenmore pizza microwave beeps constanly


This is not a solution, it is a clarification request, but it looks like FixYa took away that helpful option, too.

I would suggest you post a whole new help request and be sure to tell us:

1. The FULL model number from the tag in or on the microwave. A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

2. Let us know when it beeps. Is it only after cooking? While it's setting idle?

3. Next, let us know if the display has anything in it besides the normal clock time.

A good first step might be a hard reset, accomplished by unplugging the oven for a minute or two, plugging it back in, then resetting the clock.

Display light has the number 7. The oven has no


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 maybe an hour.

If you still have trouble, you may have a failed keypad or controller.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for a free estimate and free tips & do-it-yourself advice.

How to stop the beeper and reset the "code' light on panel?


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it, and please reply back with your model number so we can help you.

How do i set clock for time of day


You can download your owner's manual free here.

From the manual:

SETTING THE CLOCK - When the microwave oven is plugged into an outlet, the oven will display " 0:00 "

1. Press the CLOCK button; the hour digit will blink
and the clock indicator will light.

2. Press the number keys to set current hour.

3. Press the number keys to set current minute.

4. Press AM/PM to choose AM or PM.

5. Press the CLOCK button again; the display will
show the present time. After the clock has been
set, the time will appear with blinking colon,
unless the oven is cooking or defrosting.

NOTES:

- To reset the present time in the display window when the oven is off, press the CLOCK button and
reset.

- If you make a mistake when setting the time, press the STOP/CLEAR button.

- To recall the actual time while the oven is cooking or defrosting, simply press the CLOCK button
and the display will show the actual time for three seconds.

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.
