Hello,

If touch pad has gotten wet, then allow to dry for several days. Avoid spraying cleaning liquid near touch pad.
Check for insect infestation. Insects (cockroaches most frequently) will appear under clear surface of touch pad or under readout window; they like the warmth of the circuit boards.
Place window mesh over vent to keep insects out.

You will need to leave the microwave oven to dry very well before you can use it, because during the process of your wife cleaning it, she may or might have allowed the touch pad to be wet, so leave it to dry before operating it.

Take care.

How do I set Clock?


Disconnect the microwave from the power source while the power is still out. If the microwave is a built-in, turn off the circuit breaker. Otherwise, unplug the microwave from the wall outlet. This prevents a power surge from damaging the magnetron tube when the power is restored.Turn on the circuit breaker or plug the microwave into the outlet only when you are sure that the power is permanently restored. If there are still storms in the area, the power may be disrupted again. Reset the clock on the microwave. Microwaves vary slightly on how to set the clock, but usually there is a clock button you press. Use the number pad to input the correct time and press the clock button again to set it. Test the microwave by heating some water to ensure that it is still in good operating condition.

Microwave stops randomly on its own, dispaly flickers and I get prompted to enter clock settings, what should I do to fix it


When a microwave asks for the clock settings, it has lost power. Check the plug and the outlet for damage or if it is loose. When on, vibrations can cause the plug to reposition if loose enough. Even a very short loss of power will reset the microwave. If the plug/outlet is ok, then check to make sure that the fuse for the outlet is tightened fully (breaker switches do not have this problem). Last, try another outlet as the wiring to the outlet may be loose.

Hello, I have a Panasonic MMT573SBBPQ microwave oven. 1. The turntable table stopped working. 2 Tested motor all OK 3. Noticed bulb had blown - replaced this (as was on same circuit as motor) 4. result :...


Check the door switch and once the door is shut the board must be active. If there is no clock or display then the processor board is faulty. Also if there is no action from the touch pad then it must be checked. Since the turntable works as you start the processor seems to work but the output to the magnetron is not active. So you need to check the relay to the magnetron switching, check the temperature cut off unit and the main capacitor.
All the above seems to be suspected.
Attempt with care/caution as there is high voltage present.

Machine will not turn on


from online Microwave Repair Manual: Totally dead oven (no lights, no clock, no display, no fan, no heat...)First, check power to the outlet using a lamp or radio you know works. The fuse or circuit breaker at your service panel may have blown/tripped due to an overload or fault in the microwave oven or some other appliance. You may just have too many appliances plugged into this circuit - microwave ovens are high current appliances and should be on a dedicated circuit if possible. If you attempt to run a heating appliance like a toaster or fryer at the same time, you *will* blow the fuse or trip the circuit breaker. A refrigerator should never be plugged into the same circuit for this reason as well - you really don't want it to be without power because of your popcorn!

If you find the fuse blown or circuit breaker tripped, unplug everything from the circuit to which the microwave is connected (keep in mind that other outlets may be fed from the same circuit). Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. If the same thing happens again, you have a problem with the outlet or other wiring on the same branch circuit. If plugging in the microwave causes the fuse to blow or circuit breaker to trip immediately, there is a short circuit in the power cord or elsewhere.

The microwave oven may be powered from a GFCI outlet or downstream of one and the GFCI may have tripped. (Removing a broken oven lamp has been known to happen.) The GFCI outlet may not be in an obvious location but first check the countertop outlets. The tripped GFCI could be in the garage or almost anywhere else! Pushing the RESET button may be all that's needed.

Next, try to set the clock. With some ovens the screen will be totally blank following a power outage - there may be nothing wrong with it. Furthermore, some ovens will not allow you perform any cooking related actions until the clock is set to a valid time.

Assuming these are not your problems, a fuse has probably blown although a dead controller is a possibility.


While you can do some repairs on your microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, go to the link at the top of this post.

I accidently ran it for a few minutes wih nothing in it. I turned it off and everyting seemed fine. Later I walked in kitchen and there is no light, power or anything.


I assume you checked the power cord and house power circuit breaker panel... possibly tripped unrelated to your running the microwave empty.

The control panels on my electric range work but when I turn it on the oven doesn't get hot??


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. You need to check these things: The screw in fuses, they are usually the 30 amp fuses for the oven. Next is the clock assembly, often these clocks will have the words "push for manual" or "turn for manual", this will put the clock back into the normal operating mode rather than the automatic mode. Next, you may have to remove the power and check for any burnt wires. If all checks ok, you will have to test the selector switch and oven control.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

No power to GE Spacemaker Microwave


I have model GE Microwave serial # JVM2070SK02. I start to cook something and it shuts off 5~10 seconds. Keyboard is still lit up, but no clock, fan, light and you cannot operate anything on the key pad. Unplug the unit and it resets. Sometimes it cooks, sometimes it doesn't? It is getting more frequent with the shutting down problem?

Problem with electrical source


Does your manuel also tell you to use a DEDICATED 20amp circuit to plug your Microwave in to? More that likely you used a 15 amp circuit that other appliances were also plugged into. A refrigerator or other cooling item needs its own 15 amp circuit but can tolerate small amp draw items like a clock. The new, higher wattage microwaves need a 20 amp circuit for itself. Have your line checked , have your microwave fixed. Start new

Poor heating performance


I complement you on an exemplary report!
The drooping line voltage seems a little more than desired and you might want to try it on a different outlet, but doubtful the real problem. Microwave ovens are about the heavyist load that standard house wiring sees.
More likely the magnatron is just going bad especially if the fan hasn't been working and it has been running hot.
By the way, how old is it?
They are not too hard to replace yourself. Look on EBAY for "universal magnatron"
Hope Ya Fix it!
