Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: Problem with Frigidaire CPLMV168CC1 Over the range microwave

I would suggest a hard reset - unplugging it for a few minutes then trying again.

If you don't have the owner's manual, you can download it here:
ftp://ftp.electrolux-na.com/ProdInfo_PDF/Springfield/316137207en.pdf

If it doesn't have an option to turn sounds on and off, you may have a problem with the keypad or control board.

Moisture may have gotten into the controls from steam (from not using the exhaust fan while cooking on the stove top) or spray cleaner (from spraying the keypad directly instead of spraying it on a soft cloth).

Please reply back with more details if you need further help.

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

SOURCE: Over the range Frigidaire Microwave not heating. Model FMT148

This is a sure sign that the MAGNATRON needs replaced (this is what heats up the food) if every thing else works but food not cooking! 99% of time it is the magnatron!
Please rate answer!
THANK YOU!

Chances are it's a defective high voltage rectifier diode or magnetron.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/cap_test.html

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

You can download Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions can be downloaded through the links here. where you can also locate a nearby authorized servicer if you choose.

The magnetron has a 10-year part warranty, but you would have to pay labor.

If nothing else, you can save about $75 by taking it to the shop yourself.

Good luck.

The reset is because it lost power at some point. There could be a loose wire internally or a blown fuse. Your call to open the console and check a few things your self or call fr service. Eric

My child lock on my Frigidaire is constantly beeping... The door is not locked but it is beeping...


Hello Shelley, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand your Frigidaire is constantly beeping while they door is unlock, however do you have a range or microwave Frigidaire appliance? The serial tag for a range, which lists your model number, is typically located in the storage drawer, on the right side and the serial tag for a microwave is in the lower left corner as you open the door. With this information I can better address the issue at hand. Thank you!
