You have a failing membrane keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs nationwide.

Is the clock that has stopped working fixable?


Yes, but ... If this truly is a failure, you're looking at replacing the clock/display/control board. This is usually a VERY expensive solution. In some cases more than it's worth as compared to replacing the entire microwave. The clock not 'sticking' is a rather unusual complaint. I'd highly recommend that you dig out the owner's manual - or check on-line for one if you can't find / don't have - to make sure you're not missing a step while setting the clock.

Microwave turns on but does not heat.


The magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

The oven control panel won't let me push light and work. Even when putting in the times for microwaving, the start button won't work. The panel seems to not be working. Do I need to replace the panel?


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 it is just failing to start when you press "Start", it may just be a door switch or mount. See this file.

If several keys are not working, it is almost certainly a bad keypad.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Fan starts intermittently Amana AMV5164BAB microwave oven


Sounds like a loose connection or a failing hood thermostat. That's right behind the control panel on the base plate.
