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.

Started making noise


It's probably the magnetron or high voltage transformer, but it may also be a failing high voltage diode.

Depending on the age of the unit, the magnetron may still be under a part warranty, but taking it apart would likely void that warranty.

If you think it might be under warranty, you should contact LG. For Goldstar / LG / L.G. help, call 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.

If you decide to check it further yourself, we have a similar model's service manual on our site:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/mv1555st_sm.pdf

Bear in mind that the part numbers will not be the same for yours - you will have to call LG to get proper part numbers.

Power on a MV1526w Microwave!!


Yes, the display should always be on when plugged in.
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. It looks 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.
Hope ya fix it!

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.
