Question about LG LMV2055ST Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Not heating properly

We have had our LG 2055ST for less than a year. Yesterday I was heating up a beverage (which normally would be fine after 40 seconds and when I took it out, it was still cold.. I feel that when I want to heat something I need to do it double the time. So instead of heating up a slice of pizza for 2 minutes , I have to do it for 4 minutes.
are there any suggestions before I call customer service?

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If that doesn't do it, and your line voltage is right, then I would say your magnetron is dying.

Slow is heat is a typical symptom of magnetron failure.

Microwave will not heat food.


Sometimes inside the machine there is a fuse for this, if you can remove the outer case you should be able to see it, HOWEVER let me tell you that i have been in this position and have replaced the fuse and the machine then works only to die again, once this happens it is usally a sign that either the tube or a transformer is gone and it normally isnt worth getting fixed.

LG Microwave does not heat food


est the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

Thediode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must bealloweddischarge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenifpower is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting theirtwocontacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.



All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

LG microwave no longer heats!


It sounds as though you may have run the microwave while empty, which can damage the magnetron.

Not that I'm optimistic, but the first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Otherwise it likely needs a new magnetron.

Help with repair for LG 2055ST


Check the internal fuse. Unplug it, unscrew and take off the cover, the fuse should be easily found in the back by the power cord. I tlooks like a regular fuse but is white instead of clear glass because microwave fuses are special. You'll have to measure it with a meter as a result and be sure to replace it with the same kind. (try finding them at radio shack) Hopefully there isn't something more serious also.
