Hello,

If the microwave oven won't start, You can reset. Power surges like nearby lightening can cause the oven to stop working as a safety measure, but you can reset it easily. Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display,

Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.

Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock.

This should fix the problem.

Take care.

    Hey there, I tried to hard start the microwave by unplugging it as suggested. When I plugged it back in the electronic panel asked me to set the time of day but the clock button wouldn't work....I pressed all the buttons on the electronic display....a couple of the defrost buttons worked....but then I couldn't get anything else to work....it is unplugged now will go try again....maybe I didn't give it enough time.....any other suggestions?

Power outage all lights and clock work burners and oven nothing


possively the problem of your microwave is the transformer. or the radiation box. and check it also there diode attached to the transfromer... or if you have no tools. like ohmeter tester to check the all components of your microwave or no idea to open it. it's better to reffer to the nearest electronic shop.

Will not power up after power outage


it contains two fuses one of 10 Amps and other for 500mA.
Replace 10Amps fuse with same type and rating.Best thing is to take this fuse and show it to the sale person of electronic shop.
Before you touch any parts of the microwave oven please disconnect the mains power chord and never touch the main power capacitor as this contains very high voltage even after disconnection.

A small blinking light on the left upper corner of panel after a power outage and I can't do any command. The interior lights don't even come on when opening door. I already reset the breaker


Unplug the microwave oven for 10 minutes in a attempt to reset the microprocessor ic, press and hold the start button for the same time and release. Now plug everything back in hopes it will restart, if no change! the keypad control board will need to be replaced along with other unknown parts, due to the nature of damage far cheaper to replace.

We lost our electrical power, when it came back on, the electrical panel (clock).. began blinking. The clock re-set with no problem. But, now the microwave won't work. I simply get a message that says...


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Anytime the power comes back on, their is a serge of power and things get blown up.
in the future, when you know you have a power outage.. turn off your main breakers,, then after the power comes on, then turn your power, you will not get the serge.
now go to you oven breaker and reset both switches, and see if your door lock corrects.

If you still cant get the microwave working, i have to give you this warning, and only say you have a defective control board.

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.

Power outage now microwave won't work


Most likely blew internal fuse. Pull the top/side cover off and check the line fuse. It should be behind the control panel in that area.

Power went off for about 2 seconds. when power came on, the clock was still running but touching each and every other button brought no result. cannot change the clock, or use the microwave at all.


the next day, i tried the microwave again and it worked fine. don't know what caused the problem other than the power outage - we have quite a few of them.

Very common problem with the display. It may or may not eventually light back up on it's own.

I would suggest contacting www.microwavedisplay.com. Lots of info and the best deal going for repairing the display.

Try unplugging the unit for 30 seconds then plug it back in. The power outage may have been erratic and the MW did not reset properly.
