Question about Dacor DMT2420 1200 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

The touch pad fades out and now won't work.

The touch pad has been fading and going out for some time.  Sometimes a breaker re-set woud bring it back, but only temporarily.  I was futzing with the inside electronics and a ribbon connector pulled out easily and now nothing works.  Good job, huh?  Who do I call?
I'm in Portland, Oregon and my wife is about to kill me.

H7871SOGB/03 combi. Why isn't it working?

The fact the breaker in the fusebox tripped indicates a fault in the appliance that is probably safety related. If it was the mcb (micro circuit breaker) it indicates a sudden overload. If it was the rcd (residual current device) it indicates there might have been a live circuit shorted to earth.

The fault is likely to be internal and it is potentially dangerous for unqualified people to fiddle about inside microwave ovens. Many brands are cheap throw-away items these days because a visit to the repair shop tends to cost more than a replacement.

The Neff brand is a premium brand and although repair costs are expensive it is likely to be (marginally) cheaper than a replacement.

My stove is a frigidaire gallery series and my oven won't at all. Error F7 pelase give me a solution

f7 normally is a control issue either the touch pad or the control board inside the unit... turn the breaker off to unit and try to run your hand over the keypad pressing firmly on all the button ..reset the breaker afterwards usually a 50 amp ciruit and see if it still does it.. the ribbon cable on the touch pad has either failed or the control board itself... common problem with these units.
you may luck out as sometimes the keypad will get stuck and by resetting will correct problem...

The clock works & counts down but the microwave won't heat

  • Disconnect the power for 30 seconds. After restoring power, do not set the clock.
  • If your model has an ON/OFF clock display, you can choose not to have the time displayed. To choose this option, press the 0 pad for about three seconds. To Turn the display back on, press the 0 again.

Touch the clock pad. Enter in the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence. Touch the clock pad again.

Power Problems on NEFF H7871 Combi Microwave

It would seem there is a bad connection in the fuse holder or in the wall socket or in the microwave itself. Maybe you can narrow it down to the microwave by trying other devices in the wall socket. If it's the microwave, it's time to call for serivce.
