Remove all the external screws, if there are any tabs holding the outer cover on, you will need to bend them a bit with pliers. After the outer shell is removed, you now have access to the control panel which can be removed by removing the mounting screws and disconnecting the plug in wires.

Kenmore Elite Microwave Model No: 79080373310 giving E-11 error code

I do not know what an E-11 code is on that unit. But the fact you say no buttons are working gives me a clue that you may have a bad touch panel. Could be a Goofed up Microprocessor on the board. A Lot of units will give a code for a bad pad. If an air pocket in a pad colapses, the microwave thinks you are pushing and holding down a pad, so it will give a error code. An E-11 code may mean a bad touch panel on your unit. Try to unplug the unit, give it a minute and plug it back in, try to set the clock first and see what it does. When setting the clock try all of the number pads and see if they all respond. If one doesnt that mey be your bad pad. Or if a number comes up on its ownwithout pushing it, that pad could be shorted.

The control pad only works on a few numbers.

Check to see if there is a ribbon cable between the touch pad and the circuit board. If there is, clean both ends with electronic contact cleaner, and re-connect.

If that doesn't fix it, you may have a bad touch pad.

Microwave quit working, timer, number buttons timer, all functions on micro side of control panel quit working , timer numbers start etc.

Check to see if the fuse went. If negative then something is wrong with the electronic pad for the unit.

Key pad flashing se . key pad locked pease tell me what to do iam a disabled lady need help please

"SE" error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

You would need to have either the membrane keypad itself replaced, or the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad, or the whole controller.

Part numbers and prices will of course depend on the model number.

Sharp Microwave on "Lock" and

The Child Lock prevents unwanted oven operation such as by small children. The oven can be set so that the control panel is deactivated or locked. To set, touch CLOCK, the number 1 pad and then touch the START pad and hold for 3 seconds. Should a pad be touched, will appear in the display. To cancel, touch CLOCK, the number 1 and STOP/CLEAR pads

Key pan will not work on some numbers

The keypad control also includes the microprocessor ic board which is attached to the back of the pad. If you are having trouble with some of the numbers this usually not a good sign, the processor controls all vital areas of the microwave oven and are critical for imputing information. If the pad is sealed, the only option is replacement of the whole panel. I recommend a appliance repairman or a tv technician to assess cost.

Numbers 4,7,8,9,0 and Beverage on pad do not work. Others do work, do I have to replace the oven? (Spacesaver JVM1440WH04) Over stove oven installed in Feb 2007, in use 4 months each year. This problem...

No you can have the keypad replaced. It may be something as simple as a dis-lodged keypad ribbon connection where it mates to the control panel recepticle. If you look here: there are several model numbers it seems you did not provide all of the numbers but the keypad is the same. The key panel here is $75.00 Then you add a service call or shop charge your looking at well over a $100.00 repair. Your call on how to proceed. Good luck.

Some numbers on the control panel won't react when pressed...I can bang on it and it will work but not just by touching the numbers

mine did the same thing. i bet you have kids. kids are really hard on touch pads. the touch pad itself isnt too horribly expensive. id try a new one of those. teach the kids "gentle touch". cheaper in the long run.

Where is the fuse located

It would be helpful if you could reply back with your brand and model number, but I can give you a good answer without it.

First of all, this won;t be a problem with the fuse. When a microwave's fuse blows, the unit will be dead.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here:

If yours is not listed, please reply back with your brand and full model number.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, which we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
