Question about Frigidaire FMCB115GC Microwave Oven

1 Answer

The timer counts down but the microwave doesnt turn on.

Microwave actual serial # FMC B11 5GM. We had this microwave set on push a one and cooks for one min. push a two and so on.. in a rental house with people who aren't electronic savy. I pushed a 'wrong' button and now two icons have appeared. one with a cup with little waves coming from it, and the other some kind of box. The microwave doesnt cook, when you push anything, these two icons appear, a random time comes up and counts down with the light on and turntable but no cooking. The timer counts down and then stops. We have tried everything including unplugging for two day and same happens. What is going on? Is it in some kind of lock down mode, child lock mode, please help. The microwave is less than two years old. how do we clear all this and get back to makining it cook. Thank you jimi

I have a FNCB115GC Microwave problem. The microwave has a icon on the left hand side of the panel that looks like a opened book on a stand with lines on top. This is best that I can descibe it. 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.

Why does Microwave count down but will not run?


Sounds like a door switch is not closing; either primary or secondary. You could have either a bad switch, or the latch assembly is not aligned properly.

If by "manual timer" you are referring to a knob that you turn to set the cook time, then you may have a failure of the motor that turns the timing mechanism, or a lack of power to it.

There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

If the timer counts down and nothing else happens, the secondary interlock switch is bad. This switch completes the cook circuit and this is why it doesn't run. You need an ohm meter to diagnose and find the right switch. Switch failure is caused by opening the door when it is in cook mode. Push the stop button first before opening the door and this failure will cease to occur. BE CAREFUL !!

I would replace the door switches and set up the door gap to 1/8" just enough to alow for a little play.
Setting the door square is acheived by slackening the lower door hinge and re tightening it when the door is square.
Hope that helps.
