Question about Frigidaire GLMV169D Microwave Oven

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.

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.

GE Spacemaker Microwave JVM1441 BH04 tripping circuit breaker


your power transformer for the magnetron could have a shorted primary power winding,the door safety interlock switch could be mis-adjusted,this normally blows the internal unit fuse,a shorted high voltage capacitor,or diode,a bare wire inside the unit,more than the microwave on that circuit or a weak circuit breaker in the house power panel

Samsung smh7175wc - dead??


id say there is a bad connection somewhere and is arcing due to that which is causing it to trip breakers. so when you banged it and it started it made a connection and then stopped when you turned it on. open up the back abd just pull the wires anywhere connections are made and see if any are lose.

Turned on the microwave and all power just went out. Checked the breaker panel, but none are tripped.


when you said the power went out ( did you mean to the micro or the complete hm . if only to micro it probably blew it internal fuse . they doo that . replace the fuse ( radio shack is a good place to get it .) but ck the door inter lock's as they may have caused the failure . ps buy more than one fuse / you may need more. **** ,,

Dead microwave


There are replacable fuses inside. Taking the microwave apart requires removal of a lot of screws and the cover that can be rather bulky. make sure it's unplugged and safe before you begin. you can get replacement fuses at radio shack, ect. be sure to buy the same type and amperage. if the blow a second time there may be other issues.
