Check the internal fuse. Unplug it, unscrew and take off the cover, the fuse should be easily found in the back by the power cord. I tlooks like a regular fuse but is white instead of clear glass because microwave fuses are special. You'll have to measure it with a meter as a result and be sure to replace it with the same kind. (try finding them at radio shack) Hopefully there isn't something more serious also.

    Magnatron is suspect. Need to put a voltmeter on the input
    (primary) side to the high-voltage transformer (big heavy iron thing in
    there) Should be getting 120Vac when it goes to cook cycle. Don't
    touch the other (high voltage) side of this transformer. If the
    power is there, you are looking at replacing either the magnatron or
    the high-voltage capacitor and diode. Its affordable if you do it
    yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"

    Hope ya fix it!

Goldstar MV-1526W Microwave Oven caught fire over the control panel. The fire was on the connection to the LG Magnetron 2M214 can it be fixed?


take it to a repair shop for a proper diagnosis but generally anything other than a fuse , it will be cheaper to get a new unit

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.

Light bulb for Goldstar MV1526w


Your best bet is to remove the old one and match it up at the store.

You can usually find them at local appliance parts stores, home centers and home improvement stores, as well as places like Wal-Mart.

Many models use a halogen lamp. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

If you'd rather order it first, call Goldstar / LG at 1-800-243-0000 (M-F, 7am-8pm CT, Sat 8-5 CT) and choose the appropriate prompt from the menu or visit http://www.lgservice.com.

Yes, the display should always be on when plugged in.

Reset Microwave after a Power Outage


If its part of the house your renting, call the landlord as its most likly a control panel went bad, and in this unit, thats probably going to exceed the cost of the microwave oven. If its a rental oven, take it back.
