All microwave sold in US has a dual safety lock sensor.

The most common cause of LOC display is one or both PLASTIC safety is crack,misalign or dirty.


Unplug the microwave,

DO A GOOD cleaning on the door and the metal surface.

Pay close attention on the TWO white plastic hook behind the door handle.

They must be in perfect condition and free from dirt


The hooks activate TWO micro-switches, THE MUST BE MAKE PERFECT contact.

===

To sum it up

DO a good cleaning

Check and clean the hooks

Check and clean the switches........you should be back in business.


Good luck. .

My Magic Chef microwave say LOC when you try to start it


Sounds like the child-proof lockout has been activated. The manual would have instructions on how to release it.

Ge microwave jvm1740 start and clear/off button not working


Sounds like a bad keypad. You will need the full model number off the microwave to look up the correct control panel part number. Sometimes these type of parts can be really expensive & it may make more sense to replace the microwave depending on the age and condition.

Microwave oven will not start after I put in the time. It says open and close door and press start. Still won't start


Probably a bad door switch or mount. The door switch help file is here.

On some models though (you didn't mention yours) the door circuit is very complicated, and may be showing the door error due to a blown fuse or cavity TCO.

Accessing the cavity TCO for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

The drawing below shows what to check:

The microwave starts up by it self, on off wont work,it's wacky


You have a shorting membrane keypad. If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

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 would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs nationwide.

Either way, we can let you know what your options and costs would be and send you other helpful info.

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.

Feel free to contact me
directly (and please mention your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

What does loc mean on my screen, and how do I fix it


To cancel lock;

Touch and hold the cancel/off pad for 5 seconds and the locked should disappear.

Same to lock.

I can't find anything about the LOC, so maybe the rest of the word is just missing.

Try this and see if it works. You can always post back and ask again
if I am wrong.

Displayd LOC Code


The first step is to unplug it from the wall for a few minutes then try again.

In case it helps, model EM-S5595 is unlocked by holding the Stop/Clear button as in the photo below.

If that does not do it, try Sano/Fisher Service at http://sanyoservice.com/ .

You may also have a keypad or control board problem.
