Question about Maytag MMV5000 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Keypad barely works

The keypad on my microwave is getting worse and worse. My question is should I replace the keypad or the microwave? If I choose to replace the keypad is it something I can do myself? If I replace the microwave, can I find one that will fit in the spot over the range?

Keypad replacement is something most DIYers can handle okay, or for only $39.95 plus parts, we do them for customers nationwide.

If you or someone you know decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here:

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

    On-site service is only available in the Central Indiana area.

    Customers normally ship their control panel assemblies here for repairs.

    Assuming you have the Maytag MMV5000, this one is a bit expensive, and the total cost would be $110-115.

My start button isn't working....I can press the "popcorn" button and it will automatically turn itself on and cook whatever I have placed in the microwave, but nothing happens when I press the "start"...

If it will start automatically without using the 'start' button, the 'start' button must be bad. If the door sensing switch was bad, it wouldn't start at all. It needs a new keypad. The most common cause of a keypad failure is from spraying a cleaner on it instead of using a just barely damp cloth to clean it. The liquid can run down the front of the laminated keypad and get into the bottom and seep up into the lamination....

I have an Emerson 900W Microwave MW8999SB and it will randomly assign DEF1 and the rest of the keypad is difficult or not functioning. None of the quick buttons work, and only the 30-second button works....

Pressing the Clear/Pause button works. Sometimes. Most of the time, about a microsecond after pressing Clear/Pause, it goes right back to def1. Most of the time, pressing ANY button doesn't work. Usually takes me 10 to 20 tries to get anything to work. My microwave is about 3 months old. I will never buy Emerson again.

GE HVM1540DN1BB over the range microwave. Touchpad will not respond. Unit was purchased in July of 2008.Can it be fixed or should I replace It?

We had this same problem. I went on youtube and there is one link called "Quick Fix for GE Microwave." The guys shows how to take the panel off. You take the connectors off and put the keypad on the table and pull the ribbon tab out of the connector (don't take the connector out of the board, it doesn't some out). Then you put the ribbon tab back into the connector and it works. The ribbon tab just needed to be reseated. The whole thing took about 5 minutes. I was ready to listen to all these other people and go out and buy a new keypad. . .even worse. . I was ready to pay $500 for a new microwave. No way. . it's done. My wife thinks I'm so amazing blah blah.

I report from owner manual.

F3 means : Short circuit on key panel (your touch pad).
You get F3 error if a shorted key panel is detected for more than 60 seconds.
Solution: . Replace key panel (touch pad).

Try first unpluggign power cord for five minutes.

If you think that the problem may had been caused by water inside the keypad you can try using an hairdryer on the keypad, taking care not to melt the keypad plastic.
If that does not work, then replace the keypad.

Tricky touch pad on Sharp R530 es microwave oven

There are two options here:

1. Order a new control panel frame which has the keypad, trim piece and door button already installed and swap your control boards into it.

The original part number FPNLCB346MRK0 has been replaced by part # FPNLCB346MRK0B and it runs $58.28 plus shipping.

2. Disassemble your control panel frame, peel off the old keypad and stick a new one on.

Even though the keypad alone runs only $35.66, this job takes a lot of time and labor.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace just the keypad yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

Whichever option you choose, we have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Keypad on the microwave doesn't work

well if you find out that your microwave keypad is not working, like those numbers or letters are not working, there's a 16 or 8 plug cords wire attach to the keypad and the need to clean that with normal water temperture.than dry it for about 10-20 minutes.

I garintie you it will work.

Your Control Key Pad is a circuit with each function and button a switch. The pad on your TV Remote, and Telephone is no different. The Key Pad is failing, It will only get worse. Determine if you can replace the Touch (Key) Pad. Not the Control Circuit, just the Touch Pad. Sometimes you can get it seperate. It connects by a Flex Cable to the Control Circuit.
