Why won't my microwave oven work?

No, it's not worth the effort required to replace the control module - unless it is a commercial model.

Call service error

There is a fault in the magnetron circuit somewhere. Do not mess with this yourself because there is lethal high voltage present even when the microwave is unplugged. Call a service tech.

1) Press the "Stop" button on the microwaveicon1.png to reset the digital display to the clock setting.

I am having a problem with my Panasonic Microwave oven. the operating panel is a touch type one. Now whenevr I am pressing any button, I am not getting any beep sound nor the display panel is showing any...

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

This can happen when there is a power failure. Usually there is a PF in the display but you can also get 88:88

Try this first: Press stop / pause or cancel then clock and try and set the time. If at that time you do not get any beeps your control board most likely has a problem. To dig deeper if you wish to have more assistance I need your complete model number to possibly troubleshoot.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Operation manual is lost, how do I set the clock?

The manual for the Magic Chef MCD1311ST Microwave can be downloaded in pdf format from the following site (follow the link then click the "Manuals" tab):

If you don't have time to download, here's what the instructions state:

When the oven is first plugged in, the display will flash ":0" and a tone will sound. If the AC power ever goes off, the display shows ":0" when the power comes back on.

1. Touch CLOCK pad.
This is a 12 hour clock system.

2. Touch CLOCK pad once more.
This is a 24hour clock system.
NOTE: This oven has multiple clock system. If you want 12 hour clock system, omit this step.

3. Enter the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence.

4. Touch CLOCK pad.
The display stops blinking, and the colon start blinking. If you selected 12 hour clock system, this digital clock allows you to set from 1:00 to 12:59. If you selected 24 hour clock system, this digital clock allows you to set from 0:00 to 23:59.

5. Touch STOP/CLEAR pad.

NOTE: If you attempt to enter an incorrect time, the time will not be set and a error signal tone will sound. Touch the CLOCK pad and re-enter the time.

I need an instruction manual

press both Hour and Min buttons simultaneously for two seconds. You will hear a beep and the timer will reset. Don't press any other buttons for twenty seconds. The display will now change from the time to the clock. Press the hour botton. The hour digit will blink. Use the Min button to set the hour. Once you have the right hour, press the Hour button again, and the minute digits will blink. Press the Min button to set the minutes. Once you have the correct time, press the hour button one last time and your time is now set.

R-209BK Sharp Microwave buttons inoperable

I had this problem too:
it turns out that it (apparently) just needed some 'warm-up' time!

After being plugged in for about 15 to 30 minutes,
the buttons suddenly "came to life"...

Note that when it's flashing 88:88 you are supposed to _start_ with the 'Stop/Clear' button. After that, set the clock (press "Clock", enter the time with the number pad, then press Clock again).

Hope that helps.

GE profile microwave

Most likely problem is your Smart card has fried.Its located on the removable panel that your display is attached to.If you remove the screws that open this Clock Panel (un plugged from power first) the display panel will swing down and you will see the circuit board I mention (Smart card/control board ).Look for a visible burn on this board.If you see one ,replace the board.

Flashing 88:88 display - no keypad response - no light


I’ve read through your problem in an attempt to find a solution to my own similar issue with my microwave oven. Other solutions (like unplug appliance overnight and reconnect to power source the next morning) did not work for my appliance.

Just as I was about to call it quits and go out to purchase a new microwave; I gave it one last try. This time, instead of pressing any and every single button on the keypad, I decided to press BOTH the "Stop/Clear" AND "Start" buttons AT THE SAME TIME. . . . . Voilà! This worked for me, but sadly, it's now May-2008 and I'm pretty sure you're own microwave is long gone since your posting appears to have been quite some time ago. Well, hopefully others that stumble through these pages with similar issues may find some assistance with my approach. Oh, and btw. . .I got this idea (which worked) from remembering the instructions on how to reset my cellphone. Many thanks, ~paul
