Question about LG Microwave Ovens

2 Answers

Our microwave light stays on. So power is going to the microwave, but it won't turn on. I've tried locking and unlocking our microwave with the lock feature. I've tried unplugging it to see if it will reset. nothing has got it to start. The timer will count down, but the table won't turn or power won't come on. even when i hit the off button. the microwave light inside stays on.

You may have a broken door switch, it's the switch that tells the microwave that the door is open, even when it's not. That would keep the light on and will not let it run, however, the timer should not be working either if this is the case.

    it depends on the make and model of your microwave, there are so many on the market and it's difficult to give blanket instruction for replacement. You will have to research what switch you need and some instruction on how to replace it.

Sounds as if the door switch has failed - so it thinks the door is always open.
Change the switch.

Thanks!!

Hi Leisha,
It is just about impossible to insert the paddle wrong ( I assume this is a mixer, not a microwave, please post in appropriate department on next go round ) so can you unlock and raise the head? I have not heard of any type of mix not being able to be removed before, perhaps you are missing a step???

I have a built-in AEG Microwave code MC166(0E?) My son unfortunately used the microwave as a timer so it was on for 30mins without anything in it. It now won't turn "on"; no light/clock...


What fuse did you change? The fuse on the wiring that leads to the microwave needs to be intact, then the fuse in the Microwave itself needs to be checked. Usually there is a plug where the microwave is plugged in, in the cabinet above the microwave, you can take another small appliance or a power tester to make sure power is available in the outlet where the microwave is plugged in. If the power is on at the outlet then you'll know that it is the microwave itself that has turned itself off for some reason. You can get manuals for these ovens at this website

Microwave plate turner keeps spinning even with door closed and microwave turned off


My microwave is doing this as well; It's a frigidaire model #FGMV154CLFA.

After using the microwave part (it is also convection), the light stays on in the microwave and the turner keeps turning.

And I've only used the convection part of my microwave a couple times and I'm not sure if I was successful. While trying to cook something in convection mode, I pressed convection, then pressed the temp i wanted, then convection, then keyed in the time I wanted the item to cook. The microwave started and the timer started counting down but the countdown stopped with 8 minutes left? I left it alone to see what would happen and it never finished so I restarted the process again.

PS..I've never gotten an error code

My microwave oven locked and when I press the clear/off for 3 seconds, it unlocks. After one minute it locks itself again. I can't get it to stay unlocked.


The same thing that Locked it will Unlock it. It is a child proof feature. To unlock it:
  • hold the Clear/Off button down for 3 seconds, until it beeps and the screen will read "Unlocked"

How do I unlock the key pad? The display shows locked and I don't know how it locked.


Here you go.

The Child Lock shuts down the control panel pads to prevent
unintended use of the microwave oven.
When the control is locked, only the Vent Fan and Light pads will
function.
To Lock/Unlock Control: The microwave oven and Timer must
be off. Touch and hold START for 5 seconds until 2 tones sound
and a lock icon appears on the display. Repeat to unlock and
remove the lock icon from display.
