Your Control Panel has failed. Replacement of the Control Panel is your only repair option. Not cheap!

I have an Emerson 900W Microwave MW8999SB and it will randomly assign DEF1 and the rest of the keypad is difficult or not functioning. None of the quick buttons work, and only the 30-second button works....


Pressing the Clear/Pause button works. Sometimes. Most of the time, about a microsecond after pressing Clear/Pause, it goes right back to def1. Most of the time, pressing ANY button doesn't work. Usually takes me 10 to 20 tries to get anything to work. My microwave is about 3 months old. I will never buy Emerson again.

I have a Emerson mg9111sl everything quit working and it is a newer model. I was told a fuse might have went out how would I replace that?


Some of the newer units do not use fuses, unplug microwave, remove top, "several screws" look over to the right where the keypad control board is, now look down, you should see a circuit board, nearby there should be a clipped in fuse, pop it out and replace with the same current rating, assemble before testing, lethal voltages present.

Touch screen displays is lit up , but will not respond by touching any of the promts. I have unpluged the unit hopeing to reset no change. unit was working fine the day before.


HELLO.

The solution is to troubleshoot the microwave as explained below.

1 Check the power supply. Make sure the microwave is firmly plugged into a working electrical outlet and that your wall outlet is active if your home uses outlets controlled by a wall switch. Check your home's fuses or circuit breakers to ensure they have not been tripped. Without power the microwave will not respond to any input.

2 Make sure the parental lock is inactive. Some ovens, like the one shown in the image above, feature a keypad lock to prevent children playing with the controls. Most keypad locks can be cancelled by holding down a button or combination of buttons for a few seconds.

3 Make sure the door is firmly closed. Some microwave ovens will not allow any control panel input if the door is open.

4 Remove the microwave from the power, wait 10 seconds, then plug it back in. This will reset the microwave oven if there is a temporary problem with the software.

5 Press the "Stop/Cancel" button several times to cancel the current operation and return the microwave to standby mode. Re-enter your cooking instructions using the keypad as usual.

please let me know the outcome..

thanks.

I have a GE Microwave and while pushing button the keypad locked and i got the message CONTROLS ARE LOCKED - how do i get out of this? I can't clear it and the buttons don't respond to touch. Kelley


If a hard reset (unplugging power for 2 minutes)does not fix it, then you have a failed membrane keypad.

To give you any further free help, we would need your full model number form the tag in or on the unit.

Please make a new post with that your full model number and symptoms.

Kitchenaid microwave oven


Either the child lock is activated or the unit needs a reset by unplugging it.

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.

You can download Kitchenaid owner's manuals and installation instructions here to find out how to turn off the child lock.

My emerson MW8992RD the red metal one displays all zeros and the button will not work at all!


The keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.

I would suggest that you contact Emerson. It may still be covered under warranty.
