Question about Electrolux Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

EI30BM6CPS this is the model of my Electrolux over the range microwave. The digital readout on it is so dim, that I can barely read it. Any thoughts on what to do?

I have to stand up close and even squint to see the numbers displayed. I don't know if this is just how this microwave is or if there is a defect. Any thoughts? Oh and it is a brand new microwave-just installed and not ever been used.

SOURCE: Sparking / Popping Microwave

GE had a rash of "underperforming" magnetrons on these units. They replace the magnetron, stirrer and high-voltage diode at no charge for parts as long as a GE-authorized service center does the work. Sometimes the unit gets run too long in a failing state and the waveguide and chassis of the oven get damaged. To see if yours is covered, see this bulletin: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf Otherwise, you need to contact GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 as soon as possible and tell them your problem and they will put you in touhc with a local authorized servicer.

SOURCE: My microwave readout say "SE"/

This is indicating a bad keypad. There is a quick reset solution and that is to unplug the unit for a while and plug it back in. But if this is brand new it needs to go back to the dealer you purchased it from. One quick note, do not ever use a liquid cleaner on the touch pad these can leach into the electronics and kill them. The following is the service note from Samsung on this issue.
For all error indications, including the SE or 5E error, try unplugging the microwave from the outlet for at least ten minutes and then plug it back in. If the error persists, the microwave may require service. Please use our ASC Locater to find your nearest Authorzied Service Center."
If this was helpful a vote on the thumbs up would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Where is the fuse on my microwave Electrolux PLMV169DCD located?

We have three service manuals covering the PLMV169 series, which you can download free:

http://www.microwavedisplay.com/plmv169dcc_sm.pdf
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/glmv169_plmv169_sm.pdf
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/glmv169_plmv169_late_prod_sm.pdf

They're all pretty similar.

You can usually find parts from the Pros here.

If not, contact Electrolux at the phone number on the front of the service manual.

It may be the C/T fuse (thermal fuse located above the magnetron) or the oven cavity thermal cutout, located on the top of the cavity.

Accessing these two parts 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 Electrolux / Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions
here.

It may also be that there was a power surge which damaged the control circuit board, activating the built-in surge protection.

This is not resettable. The circuit board has to be repaired. We do that for $39.95, details here.

My digital display is so dim you can barely read it. anyway to brighten it up?


It may be a weak VFD tube or it may be that the rear of the display window and front of the display glass are very dusty.

Sometimes you can clean it inside to brighten it up.

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.

Then you can detach the keypad connector (as per attached photo) then remove the control panel screws.

Be careful not to crack the glass display when handling it, or it's a goner.

Then you can use a soft cloth (not a paper towel) and a mild cleaner (not ammonia-based) to clean the front surface of the VFD display glass and the rear side of the clear bezel (display window) that's attached to the keypad.

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

Some connectors may have a lock.

If that cleaning didn't help, then you have a weak VFD.

On this model, the VFD is not available separately, so you would have to order a new control circuit board for it.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

The readout is reading like hyroglifics?????/


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.

If this scrambling is occurring a few seconds after you begin
a microwave heating cycle, see this FixYa solution even if your model number is different.
