Sometimes a random glitch will cause this, and a "hard reset" (cycling power) fixes it.

Other times, you may have a failing controller.

How do I set Clock?


Disconnect the microwave from the power source while the power is still out. If the microwave is a built-in, turn off the circuit breaker. Otherwise, unplug the microwave from the wall outlet. This prevents a power surge from damaging the magnetron tube when the power is restored.Turn on the circuit breaker or plug the microwave into the outlet only when you are sure that the power is permanently restored. If there are still storms in the area, the power may be disrupted again. Reset the clock on the microwave. Microwaves vary slightly on how to set the clock, but usually there is a clock button you press. Use the number pad to input the correct time and press the clock button again to set it. Test the microwave by heating some water to ensure that it is still in good operating condition.

I auto cleaned my oven the other day. I wiped it out with a damp cloth and later on that night went to turn it on and it would not heat up. The power turns on and the display seems to work normal and the...


Hi, Look at the home breaker box or fuse box to check for a tripped breaker or blown fuse. If your oven is not heating because there is no power, you may need to replace a fuse or reset a breaker. Also check the power outlet to confirm that the oven is plugged into the outlet securely.


Press the "START/ENTER" button to get the oven to heat after selecting your temperature, if you cannot get it to heat. If you do not press this button within five minutes of setting the temperature, the oven heating cycle will automatically be canceled and the oven control panel will return to displaying the sign.


Calibrate the temperature setting on the oven if it is not heating at a temperature that you like. Do this by holding down the "BAKE" button until the current calibration setting appears, which will be a temperature followed by "CAL." Use the up and down arrow button to increase the temperature and press the "START/ENTER" button once you are done. You can increase in five degree increments up to an additional 35 degrees.


Call the Whirlpool customer interaction center at 800-253-1301 if your troubleshooting fails to fix your heating problem. The customer service representative can give you contact details for a local service technician so that you can have the oven looked at by a professional.


Hope it helped

How to unlock digitals butons?


Hi there,

It sounds like you've activated the child-lock - this would disable all of the digital buttons.

To switch the child-lock OFF, simply press and hold the START button for about 4-5 seconds until "LOCKED" disappears from the display.

To switch the child-lock ON, press "STOP/CLEAR" button once, then press and hold the START button for about 4-5 seconds until "LOCKED" illiminates on the display.

If the buttons aren't working and "LOCKED" is not displayed, then you may have a defective touch control pad.

Hope this helps - please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

My stove is a frigidaire gallery series and my oven won't at all. Error F7 pelase give me a solution


f7 normally is a control issue either the touch pad or the control board inside the unit... turn the breaker off to unit and try to run your hand over the keypad pressing firmly on all the button ..reset the breaker afterwards usually a 50 amp ciruit and see if it still does it.. the ribbon cable on the touch pad has either failed or the control board itself... common problem with these units.
you may luck out as sometimes the keypad will get stuck and by resetting will correct problem...

Why does my microwave display a lock? I am unable to perform any other functions. It is plugged in properly and no circuit breakers have been tripped.


your keypad has a control lock, usually you press 1 or 2 buttons for a few seconds and it will lock your control, check your keypad for a small picture of a lock and hold that button until the icon on your display goes away or just read your owners manual or download one from the manufacters website

The Display on my microwave says "LOCKED"


The control lock shuts down the control panel pads to avoid unintended use of the microwave oven. To unlock/lock control, the microwave must be in standby mode, touch and hold stop/clear for 3 seconds until one long tone sounds and the display clears to show an outline if the display area. Repeat to unlock control, and return display to the time of day, if any pad is touched while the control is locked, there will be no response from the microwave oven. hope this helps.

1800 XL JVM1860BD - won't work


It sounds like your controller may be failing. Or it could be an electrical line problem. Any other electrical itmes giving you trouble? Has anyone measured the voltage level of your power line? It should be around 110-125 volts AC. If it's significantly lower or higher, you may have a bad connection in your breaker panel or in the wiring leading to the home.
