Frigidaire GLMV169DBA 1000W Microwave

Microwave was being used, then sounded as if it was losing power, then shut off completely. No indication of any power at all. Checked breaker and circuit to microwave and have power up to those points. Problem is definitely with the microwave. Owners manual is useless. Offers no troubleshooting info at all.

I would suspect your magnetron overheated and blew its thermostat / thermal cutout or the HV transformer failed and blew the internal fuse.

When I start my Frigidaire FGMV174KFB microwave oven it shuts completely off and after about a minute it comes back on and does a factory reset. Any suggestions on what I should do to fix?


I appreciate your inquiry, David!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire microwave shuts off and then will factory restart. It sounds like a possible problem with your control panel or a faulty wiring harness. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional. They would need to properly disassemble your microwave and test each electrical component to pinpoint the problem within it. The technician has the appropriate tools needed to complete the repair without causing personal injury or any future issues with the microwave. Best of luck! -Matt

My Frigidaire microwave trips the breaker every 5th or so use before the microwave begins to cook.


Thank you for your post, Steve Shaw!

From what you have described it sounds like a possible faulty wiring harness, control panel, or magnetron within your Frigidaire microwave. I would recommend having a professional out to provide a proper diagnosis. This will help to avoid unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

My frigidaire Gallery microwave model #FGMV174KFA will intermittently lose power completely. After a while, it will beep and come back on, giving a message "enjoy your oven." Right now I'm not enjoying...


There could be a connection problem in the electrical outlet the microwave is plugged into or anywhere in that circuit all the way back to your electric breaker panel. It sounds like the microwave is losing power and resetting. WARNING: Any type of electrical work should only be completed by persons qualified to do so.

I do not have the manual. How do I change the poiwer level on a Frigidaire Microwave model FMT116E1W


After setting the time amount before you hit the start button, push the power button with each push it should indicate a different power level if not you've got to use the keypad, for example, 50 is 50% power etc.

Amps for microwave


That should be stated on the model number tag.

If not, a typical 1000W microwave will draw 13-15 amps from a 110/120V line.

Model MW8104SS draws right at 13 amps, according to the owner's manual.

While that model is not available, you can download similar models' manuals here: http://www.emersonradio.com/owners/MWO%20manual/
