Your microwave may be in a demonstration mode. Usually there is a way to turn off the sound, change languages, lock out the key pad, etc. via some kind of "Help" key or button. Turn off "DEMO MODE" by pressing the custom help button and observe the options in the LED or liquid crystal screen of your microwave. Usually the first option to undue the demonstration mode and put back into normal operation mode was to press "1" then press the "Stop/Clear" button.

How can I get my Kenmore microwave oven to stop timer from running to fast and the clock on microwave is running to fast


Sounds like the microwave thinks it is running at 50Hz. They sense this automatically. most of the time a reboot will fix it. worst case, replace the control board.

Timer counts down very fast


The keypad control board will need to be replaced, bare in mind the cost for the part will exceed the price of a new microwave oven in some cases.

I have a Maytag that did the same thing. I unplugged it for about 2 minutes, plugged it back in and it is working fine.

Turns on but doesn't heat only a year old LG LRM1260SW 1200 Watts Microwave Oven


I have had the LG model lrm1260sw microwave for 3 years. Recently it quit heating. I found the problem was the soldered grounding lug connection on the power transformer had lost circuit continuity and failed. One of the secondary coils on the power transformer, red wire / bare copper wire, is connected to ground / chassis. I cleaned the lug connection and added a length of wire twisted together with the bare copper coil wire and soldered to the grounding lug. I then grounded the extra added length of wire to another chassis ground point. Make sure the transformer to chassis mounting screws are tight also. Now the microwave oven works like new again.

My Frigidaire microwave wont heat up but the timer and lights work. When i press start, the timer starts but there is no sound and it doesnt heat. The microwave is less than a year old.


this may be another bin job, if its not heating up its likely to be the megotron,, thats one of the pricy bits that go out like a light bulb, ask if your shop sells the tester that you put into the microwave to see if its pushing out any radition at all, if its not i would bin it and get a new one, dont try fixing it yourself,,,,,,
you could kill yourself, there is well over 1000 volts floting about inside the unit, tuch the wrong bit and you grow wings prity fast, be warned

Timer runs fast, plus no heat Maytag MMV1153BAW


No... you are not in a microwave induced time warp...
Your microwave oven needs a "reboot". The same thing happened to me.
Unplug your microwave oven, wait about a minute (more or less), plug it back in. Try setting/running your kitchen timer, boil water, etc. Your timer software on the microwave should be reset.
