Question about Frigidaire GLMV168K Microwave Oven
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control
panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very
helpful when troubleshooting, & testing..
I'm not finding the one for for this model online.
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.
If it's a convection model, F5 would be a damper door sensing error, which is usually a bad switch.
More info on switches is here.
One of the damper-related components, either the switch or motor or the damper door may be binding.
The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.
If it's not a convection model, F5 is probably a sensor error.
On some models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
"Some models are equipped with a sensor that can automatically adjust the oven's heating time based on the amount of steam in the oven. If your microwave is displaying E1, E4, or E5, there may be an issue with the gas sensor. For an E1 error, press the Cancel button and check on the food.
"Other microwaves do not give specific error messages and just display "8888" on the LED. If you get this error message, your microwave needs service.
"If the message is either ERROR or E-6, it indicates a mechanical fault.
"For all error indications, including the SE or 5E error, try unplugging the microwave from the outlet for at least ten minutes and then plug it back in. If the error persists, the microwave may require service. Please use our ASC Locator to find your nearest Authorized Service Center."
