You have a failed membrane keypad.

On this model, the keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would need to order a new control panel frame assembly, which comes with a new keypad already mounted on it.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.

That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Next, disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

You can order it here and also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link.

Change time on frigidaire microwave no clock button


Hi ssullivan013 - Here are some generics instructions that I found for the model number posted above. Hope the information is helpful.

Suppose you want to enter the correct time of day 12:30 (A.M or P.M.).

1. Touch Clock pad.

2. Enter time 1,2,3,0 and press CLOCK pad again

This is a 12 hour clock. If you attempt to enter an incorrect clock timer, ERROR will appear in the display. Touch the CLEAR/OFF pad and re-enter the time.

Push button not working on front panel


Possible that the panel is faulty specially if this is a touch pad. If so you need to replace the pad.
You can use a dryer to heat off moisture which can help in some cases.

My MMV5165BAW displays *** with micro, AM/PM, help..etc under each x. Display flashes this msg. Touch pad will not work, but when it displays to set the clock, touch pad will work. After setting clock


There may be grease or moisture on the the control circuit board, especially in the are where the keypad strip plugs into the board.

Or there may be a pad stuck on th keypad.

See the owner's manual here in case that might help you.

Otherwise, the controller assembly may need repair, which is usually economical.

Operation manual is lost, how do I set the clock?


The manual for the Magic Chef MCD1311ST Microwave can be downloaded in pdf format from the following site (follow the link then click the "Manuals" tab):
http://www.mcappliance.com/mwodetailpage.aspx?ModelName=MCD1311ST

If you don't have time to download, here's what the instructions state:

SETTING THE CLOCK
When the oven is first plugged in, the display will flash ":0" and a tone will sound. If the AC power ever goes off, the display shows ":0" when the power comes back on.

1. Touch CLOCK pad.
This is a 12 hour clock system.

2. Touch CLOCK pad once more.
This is a 24hour clock system.
NOTE: This oven has multiple clock system. If you want 12 hour clock system, omit this step.

3. Enter the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence.

4. Touch CLOCK pad.
The display stops blinking, and the colon start blinking. If you selected 12 hour clock system, this digital clock allows you to set from 1:00 to 12:59. If you selected 24 hour clock system, this digital clock allows you to set from 0:00 to 23:59.

5. Touch STOP/CLEAR pad.

NOTE: If you attempt to enter an incorrect time, the time will not be set and a error signal tone will sound. Touch the CLOCK pad and re-enter the time.

You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.

The clock works & counts down but the microwave won't heat


  • Disconnect the power for 30 seconds. After restoring power, do not set the clock.
  • If your model has an ON/OFF clock display, you can choose not to have the time displayed. To choose this option, press the 0 pad for about three seconds. To Turn the display back on, press the 0 again.





Touch the clock pad. Enter in the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence. Touch the clock pad again.

No numbered touch pad for use setting clock


I think on this one you press the CLOCK/TIMER pad, then enter the desired time using the 10 MINUTES, 1 MINUTE, AND 15 SECONDS pads then press CLOCK/TIMER again.

If that doesn;t work, press STOP / CLEAR then try the above again.

Let us know if it does not work.
