Question about Frigidaire PLMV169DC Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Everything works except the microwave function

Just the other day, our built in Microwave simply stopped functioning. The clock, programs the fan etc all work, but not the mic. Is it pooched or is there a fuse etc?

Yes there are fuses inside it,,,but,,,there is also a lot of volts still in it too, "ie, 1000's" and they bite too,
bit like a police stun gun will,,but they may not just stun you,,they could very well kill you,, so be warned!
also the fuses are not the normal sizes you would have at home, and some of them are "slow blow" type and some are "fast blow" type,,, and one is at least 1 to 4 1000 volts type?
and my gess is a fuse has poped becouse the magnatron has given up the ghost and poped its clogs!!! like its dead! and a new magnatron would be dearer than a new microwave to have fitted,,
so,,,get a new unit,,dont tinker with it and stay alive!

The door switches are more than likely the problem, one or two will need to be replaced, I recommend a professional.

Everythink works except the microwave will not start. Is there a fuze that can be replaced to fix this ? Model # NN-2551 I found the user manual on-line, but I can't find the product spec sheet breakdown...


I'm not sure what you mean by "everything works". do you mean that all the lights and the timer work. Could it be in the timer or clock mode? Try pushing the timerand cancel buttons together.
Try changing the time using the clock function.

I believe your model has a child lockout. Please check your manual for instructions on unlocking this function.

Is it hardwired or plugged in? If it is plugged in you can try a power reset, by unplugging it, waiting a few minutes and plugging it back in. It is completely unsafe to try to work on a hardwired Microwave.

Please let us know if this solution is helpful to you. Thank you.

Microwave not heating


it can be saved but get a quote from the shop first before proceeding and always evaluate it against the cost of a new one,
it could be the power supply has shorted but check it out.

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

Microwave stopped working


Generally, you get something unless the fuse inside is blown. There is generally a fuse inside the unit when you remove the button package. First, make sure that the outlet you have is good. Plug something else into it and see that it works.

GE microwave oven


Does the turntable rotate? If everything but this works (except no heat), you probably have a bad door switch. Here's a discussion of what's involved in replacing it: http://www.fixya.com/support/t267796-kenmore_microwave_hood_combination_over

If the turntable does rotate, I'd suspect a more significant failure, such as the transformer, capacitor, or magnetron. If it's any of these, it's time to replace the unit.
