Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Appliance:Frigidaire Gallery Professional gas stove. model: FGF379WJCA problem: about a month or so ago lightning struck very close to my house. The strike fried my PC, broadband cable modem, wireless router, printer, security system and a few other items. I've had to replace each of these items. I think it also may have affected our gas stove (as described above). The digital clock works as does the timer and a few other functions. However the oven temperature cannot be set and the broiler will not turn on. I've done some research on the Internet and found the central control unit for the stove. The lowest price I've found is $250. Before I spend that amount I need answers to the following two questions. 1. Are there any test I can run on the control unit or the heat sensor system that will ensure that the control system is faulty? 2. If the answer to one is no, what in your opinion is the problem? Thanks, Thomas Crigger

You can test the power of the control board for continuity with a digital multimeter. If you are not getting any current this would confirm that your board is faulty. The first thing to look at is the broiler ignitor. When this fails it would cause the broiler to not turn on. The part number is: 316119302.

Unlock frigidaire tove


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire stove is not unlocking and you have shut it off at the breaker and pressed clear. You have performed the proper troubleshooting regarding your stove and it appears that you could have a possible problem with the door latch or control panel. I would recommend having a professional technician come out and complete a diagnosis and repair on your stove. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

My microwave door wont stay close , how do i fix ?


Hey Abraham Acevedo, thank you for the post!

From my understanding the door on your Frigidaire microwave, PLMV168, is not staying closed. You could be seeing an issue with either your door latch or latch assembly within the microwave. Since these components require patience and precision to replace or remove from your appliance, I always suggest seeking professional assistance. One must be very careful handling these replacement parts as they can lead to potential harm. -Matt

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire Gallery microwave will not operate because the door will not close properly. Being that you are dealing with your microwave, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. You do not want to try and take apart anything on your appliance, as you do not want to damage your appliance any more, or even worse, bring harm to yourself or your family. The technician will be able to diagnose your microwave and determine what is causing the door to not close properly and your appliance to not operate. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire microwave not heating over the range


Hello

Try to cook something simple such as microwave popcorn. If the unit does not light up or turn on, check the outlet with another appliance to make sure the outlet is functioning correctly.


Check the fuses or circuit breakers in you house. If the outlet does not work after testing it with another appliance, try to plug the microwave in a different outlet.


Check the hinges and door hooks to make sure the door is closing properly. Look to see whether a small piece of food is clinging to the door, preventing it from closing all the way. Check the release mechanism and the rotating plate to make sure they can move freely as well.


Plug in the microwave and start it a the bag of microwave popcorn inside. If the lights go on but it is not producing heat, listen and try to hear whether the unit sounds the way it usually does. If it does not, there might be problems with the circuit board. This will need to be repaired by a certified Frigidaire professional.


Check the display that shows the time and power. If the display is flickering but it does not alter the operation of the microwave, it is not a problem. If, however, the lights flicker and your food is not heating, there may be a problem in the microwave cabinet.


Listen for buzzing sounds. If there is a buzzing sound and no heat is being produced, you may have to get a new magnetron, power diode, or high-voltage capacitor. These can be purchased from a Frigidaire retailer.


Look at the handle on the door. The most common complaint about all models of the Frigidaire microwave, according to Consumeraffairs.com, was cracked or broken door handles. Frigidaire will replace faulty handles while the oven is under warranty. In many cases, they will replace the handle even after the warranty expires for a "reasonable" amount of time.

Will not heat baby food for 13 seconds


Depending on the amount of Joules your household/microwave received your low voltage control electronics may have been fried by the lightning strike. For your own safety I recommend a new microwave.

Stove won't stay lit!!


So, you cleaned the burner per the manual (or the one you looked at when visiting the appliance store,) and it still flames out right after coming on? Sometimes things catch in the works and there are a few methods to clear them out (e.g. at the controls) depending on the model. Beyond that,in order to disconnect the stove and check the inlet filters, you might want to call the appliance or gas co for a technician. No use having leaks, searching forever for the main shutoff valve, etc.
