SOURCE: microwave door

It sounds like the mount which holds tension on your door latch heads (door hooks) is broken. You can confirm that by pushing up on the door hook. If it goes up with no real resistance, the spring is unhooked. Fixing that would require disassembly of the door (by separating the panels) and repairing or replacing either the door hook assembly or the door panel inside.

SOURCE: Daewoo MT1510B problem

Chances are your magnetron is overheating, activating the magnetron thermostat, which resets and restores power when it cools.

Your manual may call for you to put a paper plate under the popcorn bag to heat better and to protect the turntable. (And always place the food slightly off-center on the turntable, for the same reasons!)

You should first confirm that the outlet reads about 110-120 volts AC and that the microwave is on its own breaker. If a microwave shares a breaker with another high current device (or even lights) it can affect operation.

Then be sure the microwave's internal cooling fan is running.

If this is an over the range model, it will also have a exhaust hood vent fan which you can turn on and off at will, but this is not the fan I'm talking about.

The internal cooling fan should be on whenever the oven is cooking. If not, the magnetron can overheat and eventually be destroyed.

The next issue is how long you've had the oven.

If it's within the 30-day dealer exchange period, I'd take it back for a new one pronto.

If it's within the full warrranty period (usually 1 year) Daewoo's service center should fix it free.

You can visit Daewoo online or call them at 1-800-323-9668 or 1-800-553-4355 to find parts or find your nearest authorized service center to have them do the work.

SOURCE: oven shuts down after a few seconds into cycle time for cooking

The magnatron (heating element) is located in the cavity behind the control. If it's leaking microwaves onto the electronics, this will occur. This means the Mag should be replaced and a radiation test run on unit.

SOURCE: Microwave beeping and F2 error code

hi,
The F2 code is a keyboard failure. Since it's intermittent I would check for a loose wire/connection. open the control panel and reset the ribbon cable on the circuit board....


thank you,

SOURCE: During cooking, the microwave will work for about

sounds like the cooling fan has came adrift or stopped working , this will cause the magnatron ( the microwave generator ) to overheat tripping the over temperature stat ,so fix the cooling , but be sooooooooooooo carefull in there , microwaves + really high voltages , not really a job for a non electrician/microwave tech

Ge microwave m# pvm2070sm1ss. Control panel nonresponsive, attempting to check if creen lock is engaged but cant get past "change the filter"message.


I have never seen a home microwave that shuts down the unit to have you clean the air filter. Mostly they are reminders that stay up for a preprogrammed time. Have you tried to unplug the unit,let it set for a couple of minutes, Plug back in, set the time of day (clock ) and try it again?? If you get NO action from the touch panel, the touch panel may be bad.

Frigidaire microwave key shows a lock and no keys work


Here is a previous answer that might be of help.......

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 it is still locked or goes into lock mode by itself, the "clear" key on your keypad may be shorting.
Here's how the child lock works on model FMV145:

Child Lock-Out
You may lock the control panel to prevent
the microwave from being accidentally
started or used by children.
To lock or unlock the controls, press and
hold CLEAR/OFF for about three
seconds. When the control panel is
locked, an "L" will be displayed to the
extreme right.

Sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove


see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    Lock function reset for model JMV8208BAS


    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. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

    The owner's manual is online here and it covers the child lock:

    To set the child lock.
    Touch and hold
    ENTER/START
    pad more than 3
    seconds. CHILD
    LOCK ON will
    appear in the display
    window with two
    beeps.

    To cancel the child
    lock.
    Touch and hold
    ENTER/START
    pad more than 3
    seconds. LOCKED
    will disappear and
    you hear two beeps.

    Reset


    Depends on the model and the type of reset you are trying to perform.

    For most, disconnect the mains for 5 minutes then reconnect the mains.

    Some microwave ovens with a battery backed up clock require you to turn them off at the mains and reconnect them while holding down one of the control panel keys. This is usually either the CLEAR and START key or the + and - key.

    Control panel locked


    A "hard reset" may work. Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

    Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

    Child lock on and don't know how to turn it off


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

    The manual says to turn it on or off, hold the Cancel button for 5 seconds until you hear the tones.

    If you still have trouble after that, the surge may have done some damage, even though the unit has built-in surge protection.

    Goldstar microwave


    The control panel has the child lock turned on.

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

    If that doesn't work, try holding down the "0" pad for about 5 seconds.

    Different models use different keys, so try "Stop/Clear" and other keys.

    If all that fails, contact LG customer support at 1-800-243-0000 or http://us.lgservice.com
