Question about Microwave Ovens
All light are on - the 'Time Cook 1' buttom is not working whereas the other are. Over the years I have changed the fuse (bus) and it would work but now whats wrong?
It may help us to give the brand and model, but it sounds like you have a failing keypad.
We have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
Essentially you unplug the oven from the wall outlet, and remove the control panel assembly as per the instructions at the site linked above.
There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.
Then unplug the keypad from the circuit board, heat up the keypad from the front with a hair dryer, then peel the old keypad off. You have to make sure all the old adhesive is off.
Then peel the backing paper from the new keypad and carefully press the new keypad in place. You need to be precise - you cannot apply it, peel it off, then reapply it.
If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
