The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Please reply back here and let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

It may have a bad door switch, and we can help you check into that. The first test for that is to try it while gently lifting up and then while gently pushing down on the door.

If you're saying that some digits or segments on the display do not light up, then I would first suspect grease or moisture on the control circuit board.

If it's just that some pads on the keypad will not respond, I would say your membrane keypad is failing.

I would first give it a "hard reset" by unplugging it for 2 minutes, then trying it again.

If it still fails, I would remove the control panel assembly (see the disassembly video here) and inspect the circuit board for green, gray, or white residue or grease.

The membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, but comes already installed on a new control panel frame, which is part number 5304464130 which you can order from the Pros here.

To replace that, you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move your circuit board into your frame.

FMV156DCA turns on, cook indicator lights but not cooking, timer counts down fine too


Hello epinvegas - Try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, then it sounds like the microwave has a faulty magnetron, wiring failure or control board. Contact a professional to assist with the repairs.

Microwave seems to run, but won't heat.


We have a similar problem! It sounds like a problem with the microswitch inside the unit that the door is suppose to engage when closed. If not engaged properly, it will not cook. We had the switch replaced last March but it has started acting up again. We can press in on the door and/or lift it slightly and it will cook. Try putting time on the counter and hit start. It the word "cook" appears then try moving the door slightly and see if the turntable starts turning. If not, then you may have a more serious problem. Good luck!

Won't cook


check for any holes in the microwave, then also checkplugs/electrical. if ALL this doesn't work.. then you probably need a new microwave, or return the microwave to the shop, saying that it is a manufacturer fault.
Trust me, many microwaves have done this.
