Question about Microwave Ovens
My microwave has the code A-1 in the display and sometimes when it feels like it, it'll beep and go to A-2 and A-3 and back again. I can't do anything with it. The keypad won't accept anything and I've plugged and unplugged and even tried differnt outlets and still the same problem. Is it time for a new microwave? hotpoint RVM1625 microwave has a F3 code and it will not let me do anything.
Spacesaver XL1800 will not do anything. Checked the main circut breaker, That is fine. Repluged micro into a differant outlet, Still doen't work.

F3 would be a shorted keypad. This is not too hard a job for the do-it-yourselfer.

Tips for a great answer:
Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if the switch contact are not good then it will not trigger the processor to switch on the waveguides. If the lights or fan work without any display or action of program being triggered to start then it can be a possible fault on the main board or the processor. Sometimes insect secretion can short the board and display panel and so the processor can work in such an erratic manner. If so clean, solder and reset the board.
