In some model microwave there is a reset button ,in some model microwave there is no reset button.But as you have not mentioned anything like brand and model number of your microwave.Then it will be difficult to say that your microwave has reset button.But if there is no power then it can be fault of main board of the oven .Its called the control board of the oven.Or its the problem of power supply cord/wire of the oven that has to be checked replaced.On the power supply board there is a fuse ,if that fuse is blown out then it can cause no power to the unit.There are many other possibilities that can cause no power to the unit, Fuse/circuit breaker Check to see if power is getting to the range/oven. Does anything turn on--even a light? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Main wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the range/oven, gets burned and so breaks the connection. Then you may have to replace the power cord to the range/oven, and the terminal block that the wire is attached to. Range/oven wiring There may be a broken or burned wire at the back of the range/oven. If you repair any of the wires, use only proper appliance-grade wire and wire connectors. This has to be checked.For getting any parts.You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from www.partsselect.com. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    This is a spacemaker xl 1800 microwave. I have checked the curcuit and the outlet works, however there is just no power to the unit. I was hoping that there was a curcuit breaker, reset button, or a fuse that could easily be replaced.

The Dacor DMT2420S microwave has power. Instrument dial is lite and the timer works. I can program the keypad however the turntable will not turn and the microwave will not work. The timer will count down...


There's no reset button, and if the fuse were blown, the oven would be totally dead.

Your problem is almost certainly a failed secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount.

You can see our help file on door switches here and the service manual here.

Our 2006 Samsung Microwave has suddenly ceased to heat anything. The clock works and the turn table goes around, but that's it. We had a couple of power outages just before this happened. Could it be...


Hi,

Press the "Off/Clear' button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the microwave. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. Press it when the cooking complete reminder appears on the display.
Perform a hard reset. Pull the plug out of the wall power supply, and wait a moment. Plug the GE microwave back into the wall power supply to reset any anomalies with the microwave's memory. You will need to reset the time of day if you perform a hard reset.
Reset the time of day. Press the "Clock" button, and turn the dial to set the hours. Press the dial to enter. Follow the same procedure for the minutes and a.m. or p.m. Press the "Start" button to start the clock.

I went to use my mirowave & it is completely gone. I pushed every button that I could & nothing happens. What should I do


first check the breaker in the electrical panel. your microwave should be on a circuit with nothing else. Depending on when the house was constructed. If the breaker is tripped turn it off and back on. If the microwave is plugged into a gfic outlet check to see if the receptacle needs reset. There will be a reset button on the receptacle. Their may be a orange light on the receptacle.

Microwave display window shows locked!!!!


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

There may be grease or soot on the control panel causing a lockup, and it may need circuit board cleaning / repair or a new keypad.

Tripped a breaker


sometime the kitchen has gfc outlets around the walls and one of them tripped. but not likely , it sounds like the microwave fried some valuable circuitry.
