Question about Frigidaire FMCB115GC Microwave Oven

Frigidaire FMCB115GC Microwave Oven wont stop

Have had this for a year- use maybe once a day at most- was heating something up, accidentally opened the microwave with the door open switch before it was off- now when you close the door- the microwave runs by itself- but the light nor fan come on. You can still push start and the light and fan come on but it will not shut off unless you unplug it. I know it's the door switch- any ideas? Is this a fix it yourself or a side of the road- buy a new one deal?

The only parts that are available for this unit by model number are the tray inside and the feet on the outside.

If you were adventurous and found a way to take it apart and remove the door switches you might be able to match them up at an appliance parts dealer but short of that it sounds like a lost cause.

I know that is not what you want to hear, and I as well do not like being the bearer of bad news.....

Nothing happens. it death. was working fine. an them .. the next day nothing ...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
here are some problems you may have.
  1. No power to outlet (blown fuse or tripped breaker or GFCI).
  2. Blown main fuse - likely due to other problems.
  3. Open thermal protector or thermal fuse.
  4. Defective controller or its power suppy
Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair.

My Frigidaire microwave is less than a year old. It is making a loud noise while running. So it runs loudly but does not heat up food. Is there a simple fix or did I get a dud?


The symptoms of loud noise and no heat indicate a short in the magnetron or high voltage diode. Need to take it to a qualified repair, to figure out what the problem. The magnetron replacement can cost as much as a new oven. See what the warranty covers, maybe you might luck out.

The microwave turntable does not move or the microwave does to come on but the light comes on and the timer will count down. I have cleared the microwave and unplugged it with no results. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Frigidaire microwave won't heat


Generally the magnetron (the part that heats the food) is the cause if everything else still works and it only works once in a while, possibly a short, but not as likely. Unfortunately replacing the magnetron is barely cheaper than buying a new microwave though you can check out repairclinic.com to decide whether you want to attempt replacing the part.

Let me know how this works out for you.
