    On our LG 2.0 touch pad, the 0 & 1 won't work alone.  If you push 30 or 21, they work!  What do we do?

It sounds like the keypad is worn out. The fact that you can get them to work sometimes by what direction you push on them, tells me that the contacts are not working correctly.

Did you have this problem prior to the fuse blowing or did it start after you replaced the fuse?

I don't believe the fuse blowing is related to the keypad problem. I also don't believe that you have a microprocessor problem because you say that the function buttons work but the number keys don't work right. If the microprocessor was faulty, it would not be able to read any of the keys.

The fact that the number keys are not working doesn't surprise me. When you go to cook something, you will press the number keys several times, while only pressing start or stop once. This is why your number keys have worn out first. These keys have a limited number of cycles (presses) and it sounds like its time for a new keypad.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck!

Kenmore Elite Microwave Model No: 79080373310 giving E-11 error code


I do not know what an E-11 code is on that unit. But the fact you say no buttons are working gives me a clue that you may have a bad touch panel. Could be a Goofed up Microprocessor on the board. A Lot of units will give a code for a bad pad. If an air pocket in a pad colapses, the microwave thinks you are pushing and holding down a pad, so it will give a error code. An E-11 code may mean a bad touch panel on your unit. Try to unplug the unit, give it a minute and plug it back in, try to set the clock first and see what it does. When setting the clock try all of the number pads and see if they all respond. If one doesnt that mey be your bad pad. Or if a number comes up on its ownwithout pushing it, that pad could be shorted.

The kitchen timer button does not work on my Kenmore circular wave microwave.


If it has membrane switches, you might have a bad switch. Or, you could have a bad connection between the touch panel and the circuit board. Or the circuit board itself could have a problem.

WHY WOULD THE "START" BUTTON NOT RE RESPOND WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE WORKS


Either you have a bad door switch (and the microwave thinks the door is still open), or else you have a bad touch-pad (keyboard).

Why will my Kenmore model 401.85053010 mocrowave door will not latch?


Check the door latches that stick out from the door. Push them up. Is there any resistance? If not, then the spring that pulls them downward either broke or came of its catches. You will need to call a repairman who will have to take the door apart and either replace or re-fasten that spring.

My Kenmore Elite model 66463 has the following buttons that stopped working....1-7, soft, melt, bread defrost, express defrost, frozen entree, frozen vegatables. All other buttons and microwave heating...


Sounds like a bad touch panel. They run silver oxide traces through that panel and they couple a lot of them together. So if a trace common to those pads breaks you lose all the pads connected to that line So Probably need to get price and availability on a new touch panel.
