Hello,

I’ve read through your problem in an attempt to find a solution to my own similar issue with my microwave oven. Other solutions (like unplug appliance overnight and reconnect to power source the next morning) did not work for my appliance.

Just as I was about to call it quits and go out to purchase a new microwave; I gave it one last try. This time, instead of pressing any and every single button on the keypad, I decided to press BOTH the "Stop/Clear" AND "Start" buttons AT THE SAME TIME. . . . . Voilà! This worked for me, but sadly, it's now May-2008 and I'm pretty sure your own microwave is long gone, since your posting appears to have been quite some time ago. Well, hopefully others that stumble through these pages with similar issues may find some assistance with my approach. Oh, and btw. . .I got this idea (which worked) from remembering the instructions on how to reset my cellphone. Many thanks, ~paul

New unit used 3 days. Microwave beeps and screen goes to menu, or set time screen. Sometimes changes the date all by itself. Does this in the middle of the night all night long.


I advice you to contact service if it has guarantee. This seems to be a psychological problem about your oven(!). Technical person need to do an electronic research surgery on its board to see if there is any wrong thing.

My microwave doesn't work, but display works


I would strongly consider replacing the microwave oven, prices have dropped considerably. The problem you are describing is in the keypad controller board.

Smeg SA987CX error message E plus a high pitched continuous sound. Need to disconnect power to stop. This only seems to happen when I microwave. Does anyone know what is wrong and how to fix.


Sounds like the Magnetron in your Microwave has shorted out causing it to scream .. lol own purely none technical term .
Its actually a harmonic caused by the magnetron's anode resonating , usual fault caused by breakdown of the filaments , it is pretty much had it a new magnetron would cost almost as much as a new microwave . it may just possibly be the power supply with an oscillator fault but again that is a symptom of a serious power drain problem that also points to the mag ... sorry Regards Vortash

I have microwave ST/AL25 just outside its warranty. All of a sudden stopped working, changed fuse etc, but doesnt help. Seem like some sort of internal fuse. Anyideas? Thanks.


The fault could be the power supply, safety door switches, or the main logic control board. Any one of these, or combination of these, can cause the oven to act like its dead.

Microwave not heating up


that has happened to me twice, the only thing that you can try is to change the setting to make sure that its not on DEFROST setting, and if this is fine, they I recommend U to get a new Microwave. :)
