Everything on my MVP IV microwave just suddenly stopped working - no heat, light, timer, clock. It is plugged in and I reset all breakers, but nothing. All other appliances work fine.

Check the following list to be sure a service call is necessary. Reviewing additional information on items to check may

If nothing on the oven operates • check for a blown circuit fuse or a tripped main circuit breaker.

    Where are the fuses located on this microwave?

    I think the instructions refer to the breakers on your house panel.

    On fuses in appliances:



    Sometimes, manufacturers sneak a glass fuse into the circuit board of the appliance for safety, but do not mention it in the manual.



    So, if you have some screwdrivers and or hex nut drivers and the unit is out of warranty and you don't plan to have it serviced by the manufacturer, you might try taking the white metal casing off and inspecting the inside with it unplugged for a blown fuse there.



    Look for a 1" long or so glass fuse on the main board somewhere. Otherwise, I do not know where there would be fuses unless there's a screw in one on the back.



    Look around inside and out for a fuse, if there is one. You might luck out and fix it for under $1.00 in fuses.

My ge microwave spacemaker profile model # JVM1860BF001 stopped while in use. Interior light, clock and timer work. Door vent opens. turntable doesn't work. Won't heat.


check the breaker, or check if the wall socket works. If there is power, then you need to take it for service. There are no user service options for microwaves as they are so dangerous for both super high voltage and also microwave emission. Some models do have a pull fuse on the rear, so check for that first.

Microwave oven suddenly stopped working but the clock still lights up.


Good afternoon friend, I appreciate your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire microwave display is working but it is not heating up. Based off that information you could be seeing an issue with your magnetron or control panel. It is possible it could be a false miscommunication within the panel. I would try to reset your appliance you can do that by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker for ten minutes. If that step does not work could you please reply for additional assistance? I look forward to your response. -Matt

Lg LMV1630st stainless steel microwave oven


I'm confused. If it's 6 weeks old, you can get it repaired free.

If it's 1-1/2 years old, the manufacturer will cover the part cost of the magnetron (assuming that's what's wrong) and you will have to pay for labor and any other needed parts.

Also, the subject line mentions a model LMV1630ST while your message body mentions model LMV1680BB.

For Goldstar / LG / customer service, help, call 1-800-243-0000 (M-F, 7am-8pm CT, Sat 8-5 CT) and choose the appropriate prompt from the menu or visit here.

Chances are your problem is a bad magnetron, but it may be another high voltage part.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

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

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.
