Re: Goldstar microwave

The control panel has the child lock turned on.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If that doesn't work, try holding down the "0" pad for about 5 seconds.

Different models use different keys, so try "Stop/Clear" and other keys.

If all that fails, contact LG customer support at 1-800-243-0000 or

Buttons on microwave

testing every step and fix it. God bless you see the diagram attached

Microwave Buttons Don't Work
Touchpad and Control Panel

If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective.

If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
User Control and Display Board

If the microwave buttons don't work the user control and display board are most likely defective and will need to be replaced. If some of the buttons work and some don't, it is more likely a touch pad problem and the touch pad will need to be replaced.
Main Control Board

If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced. If some of the buttons work the touch pad is likely the problem. If none of the buttons work the problem may be in the main control board.1_24_2013_5_23_47_pm.gif1_24_2013_5_24_54_pm.jpg

None of the bottons work on my microwave and only the "L" for light is lit up on the display

A serial/model number would help... MV1526W? MV1604SBQ? I apologize for needing to ask, but am not that familiar with them. I would unplug the entire unit and let it rest for at least 30 seconds, and even try to push buttons while unplugged to dispel latent static electricity within the system. Then plug it in and see if you still have the problem.

I have found a website that may help, depending if they have uploaded your particular model.

We have a Goldstar mv1310w microwave that the lights have quit working on. This is the light over the range that you can turn on while cooking on the stove. We put new bulbs in and I even show voltage on...

mcdevito75 here, It could be the light sockets are dirty from cooking fumes, oil etc, remove power from the sockets and clean them with alcholol and cotton swabs or paper towels etc.

Goldstar Microwave - Digital display is dark & does not operate

I would suspect the oven cavity thermostat is open.

We have a similar model's service / repair manual and have uploaded it to our site here for free download to help you with disassembly & troubleshooting.

To order Goldstar / L.G. parts, visit Encompass. Since l.G. / Goldstar does not list part numbers in their manuals, you'll probably have to call Encompass toll-free at at 866-779-5835.

micro switch is bad .remove top vent cover 4 screws,after removing plastic vent panel you will see 1 screw above display time window,remove this screw and lift up the complete button time control panel slightly and pull towards you to remove.there are 2 connections on this panel 1 is a 12 pin connector and a 2 pin power connection remove both put control panel there are 3 micro switches where the door pins close into the oven lock,remove 2 screws that hold the micro switch housing,on the bottom of housing you will see a small clip gently pull to the right and push back to remove .there are 2 switches on bottom of it and 1 on top. the 1 on top is normally open and closes when door is shut but like mine it stayed open and resulted in (light s display but no turntable)soon as i replaced upper microswitch it runs perfect.i hope this helps .MODEL MV1501W GOLDSTAR
