Re: Microwave oven start button not functioning

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or a friend 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:

Powers up but does not START cooking = Displays colon after you press START

I would check your onwer's manual for any other specific reset instructions. Generally it reset by unplugging it from the wall for a few minutes. Does the microwave require you to set the time and date before it will work? Are all the keys on the keypad working or do they seem to? If not, you may have a bad, damp, or corroded keypad or control circuit board. I can follow up more on these if it seems like your problem. Please met me know what you find.
