is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch
mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a
problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.
If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Replace the fuse with a ceramic fuse from Home depot! costs less than $3 and it will fix the problem. I had all the same problems as everyone else, you name it my microwave had it! you must remember replace it with a ceramic fuse! not a glass one. I know people say its the switchboard and all that nonsence but I promise you, the fuse plays a majoe roll in the microwave not working properly. Even though it doesnt look broken, a junky fuse can cause your appliance to do very strange things. I replaced mine 6 months ago and it works like its fresh out of the box.

I had the same problem, but only with 4 buttons. The 3,6,9 & Start/Stop button stopped working.
Hard reset & leaving unplugged did not work. Eventually, I tried picking it up and dropping it from several inches, and smacking it on the side. That did the trick. Works great now!

SOURCE: dryer will not start display
Hi, this is what the error code means,
E1 or E2 Thermistor Failure The dryer will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below 18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.
When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error code E1 flashes in the display.
When the thermistor circuit is shorted (<500 ohms), the error code E2 flashes in the display.
Normal thermistor resistance values:
60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms.
70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.
Hope it helps.
