The red light comes on due to a failure to detect the right intensity of light into the controller board. The LDR- light dependentt resistor - is fixed on to the cylinder which has the UV light. Hence the unit is clogged and the light intensity has dropped. You will need to open , clean and reset for the fault to go .Please take the top cover, the glass tubings and the UV lamp out very carefully not to damage.
If the fault is still persisting then the main board is faulty, sometimes the driver transistors are defective and will not output the voltage to the lamps. Please check this out and I am sure it will work. The service centres normally replace boards even if a transistor is faulty.... so your are right.
I hope my advice helps.

I have a sunbeam heating pad that has a red light blinking on top. This light starts blinking intermittently shortly after me settingthe dial to low or medium setting? Why is this happening and is it safe...

pull the electrical plug out for about 4 hrs.and plug it back in if that does not work will need to get it repaired.that means the ic that controls the sensor is faulty.if you dont want to waste your time to repair.then its time to buy a new set.good luck.

Eureka Forbes Infinity Water Purifier not working. Its blinking a red light and then not coming on.Its only 3 months old.

contact the manufacturer.and see if they have a solution, or if it is a warranty problem.At only 3 months I would think they should be able to help you

It starts and then just suddenly stops. Lights are still on, it keeps time--just stops. It usually starts again in a little bit--but sometime it takes several tries to get it going.

In all likelihood the magnetron is failing , or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

When Start is pressed, the oven starts but within 2 to 3 seconds the clock flickers and the oven "seizes up". I have to throw the fuse breaker to restart the clock, use the light, etc.

LG Microwave oven LMVM2055ST

Same issue here. LMVM1935 about 2 months past warranty keypad stopped working. Apparently they need to add something in the manual about not boiling water on the range over which the microwave is installed (gee who would have thought that there would be steam over the cooktop and we should seal the membrane?).

The silver traces on the keypad got corroded and no longer conduct. After complaining to Sears (NO HELP) and LG (EVEN MORE INEPT) and running on 30sec button for about 6 months, I found a replacement keypad $30 w/ shipping and didn't break anything taking the door apart, thanks to the parts list link above. Thanks Rickzilla!

Life's Good, Their Keypad SUCKS, or apparently we are the only people that boil water anymore.

4205 stops after a few seconds, beeps, every segment of every digit lights up.

Sabotaged??? What could they mean by that?? It could be a bad control panel or connection, but I would say you have a bad magnetron, the magnetron is mounted loosely, or the RF gasket (mesh washer) on the magnetron is missing, loose or damaged. I would contact MayTag and see if they have a different authorized servicer in your area, or get on the phone and complain to them in great detail. Do not put up with this, please.
