Our handle broke off the fridgedaire microwave. Can we get a replacement handle or do we need to get a new door or new oven?

Can you post a picture of the handle? I have found that some handles have broken at the mounting screw and that a second mounting point is next to the original point.

My fridgedaire brand microwave turns on but it dont heat up

Good Morning Bill, thank you for your inquiry! Please make sure the appliance is NOT plugged into GFI outlet. Let's try resetting the microwave by either flipping the household circuit breaker off or by unplugging. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the unit on. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, you appliance could be experiencing the following: faulty power supply, control panel, or magnetron. I am fairly confident that an authorized service agent will be able to restore your appliance to its normal operating condition. You can often locate a qualified service technician on the manufacturer website. Thank you for allowing me to assist you in a small way.

The lamp of won't work

follow the steps and fix it. God bless you

ight Bulb

If the microwave light bulb is not working it is usually located behind the upper grille and behind an access panel, and above the lower panel. On counter top units you will need to remove the outer cover to get to the bulb. If that doesn't solve the problem check the on-off switch, and control board

Main Control Board

If the microwave light bulb is not working check the light bulbs, sockets and wiring. If they are good the main control board might be defective.


Light Bulb Socket

If the microwave light bulb is not working and a new light bulb doesn't solve the problem, the light bulb socket might be burned out and need to be replaced.

I have a built-in AEG Microwave code MC166(0E?) My son unfortunately used the microwave as a timer so it was on for 30mins without anything in it. It now won't turn "on"; no light/clock...

What fuse did you change? The fuse on the wiring that leads to the microwave needs to be intact, then the fuse in the Microwave itself needs to be checked. Usually there is a plug where the microwave is plugged in, in the cabinet above the microwave, you can take another small appliance or a power tester to make sure power is available in the outlet where the microwave is plugged in. If the power is on at the outlet then you'll know that it is the microwave itself that has turned itself off for some reason. You can get manuals for these ovens at this website

Fridgedaire stove top micro oven

Blown 20 amp fuse inside the cabinet. You could try just replacing the fuse, but experience on these says that it blew out for a reason. Something has shorted out inside the cabinet; magnetron, transformer... I highly recommend contacting a local appliance repair company and have them come diagnose this for you. They'll have to remove it from above the stove to gain access for diagnosis, big job! I know this is not what you wanna hear, but they are trained on these and have the necessary tools for removal and proper diagnosis. (plus, if they mess anything up getting it down from there... they are insured) To make things go faster, remember to tell the dispatcher that it's an over the range microwave... this way, the tech will be sure to bring the necessary tools on the first trip.
