    Thanks for the info.It was manufactured in dec. 03.I doubt it is under warranty.As I said I'm glad I was home and my house didn't burn down.The odd thing is that I was only using the timer not cooking.

Hi,

No, that is not common; it's likely a bad transformer and/or magnetron. Check to see if the unit is under warranty, if it is call the manufacturer or store where you bought it. If it’s not under warranty, it would be best get a new microwave.

Flame Sensor not available


We could look it up if we knew your full model number, but some of their budget models (like some made for Wal-Mart) are made with only turntable parts available.
Within the warranty period, the oven is to be returned to the dealer.
But a fire would not normally be covered under warranty unless the oven came on by itself when idle.
Otherwise, the thermostat / TCO has temperature markings on it, and a generic equivalent or very close type can be matched at a local appliance parts store.

My microwave shuts off after cooking for 1 minute or two. display goes blank and then 3 or 4 minutes later the display comes back on again.


You didn't mention your brand or model number, but it sounds like it may be a noisy magnetron.

See this FixYa solution. even if your model number is different.

I have a Jvm1090aw. After using the convection oven the microwave will not function. Is this a moisture sensor or?


I have a jvm1090aw microwave oven and for some reason it just stopped working. It will still count down the timer but it won't light up and turn on. Also there is a small microwave icon flashing at the bottom right of the screen. Any ideas? Today I tested it again and started it for 30 seconds. The first 8-10 seconds nothing but silent counting down then it turned on for the last 20 seconds. It then turned on again when I tried it immediately after that but nothing 5 minutes later.

No power at display!


You've probably destroyed your magnetron, and the magnetron thermostat.

This kind of abuse will not be covered under warranty.

It will likely run about $75 for a technician to visit the home, $75 to do the work, $75-90 for the magnetron, and about $15 for the thermostat.

Erratic microwave timer dial


You can visit LG's site here and pick your region, then your country.

Then look in the red strip near the center top for the Service Centers link.

They may sell parts in case you or a friend want to do it yourself, but if not, they certainly can do the repair for you.

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty, I would think.
