    Its samsung Microwave C103FL.Only the start button is not working so firstly I opened the body & saw If there is any discontinuty from the backside of the panel. But the wires were intact so I opened the layered front Pannel one by one. I found that there is little redish darker portion on the zigzag layout of the start button. I just stucked the layer on the same position still the microwave is not working!

Firstly, and most importantly, you should never open an electronic device unless you KNOW what you are doing! There is a very high voltage shock hazard potential inside that can cause seriuos injury. I know, I broke a rib from a shock reflex that I received while servicing a unit during training.
Most generally, if you have a display and can't program or start the oven, PLEASE take it to someone who is trained to repair it.Or just replace the oven since that is cheaper than an ER visit!

My child locked the microwave pad. How do I unlock it?


The operation manual is available for free download from Samsung at this site: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200305/20030529145700437_MW5592.pdf
The answer to how to lock and unlock is on page 15 of the manual. It's instructions are: 1. Press the '0' button, the display will show: "PRESS 1- DEMO 2-CHILD LOCK"
2. Press the "2" button, the display will show: "PRESS START"
3. Press the start button and the display will show "LOCK" then returns to the time of day.
At this point the microwave can't be used. To unlock, just repeat steps 1-3.
Hope this helps

None of the Microwave buttons on the panel seem to be working. I tried replugging it many times but to no avail. l am unable to start the microwave. How do I get the microwave panel working and start...


Could the Child Lock feature be active on the microwave? If it is active, there may be a "box" symbol formed by the LCDs in the display. Try pressing and holding the Stop/Clear button for 3 seconds (or a little more). You should hear a long beep and the clock should return to the display (if it was set).

I do not have the DMW1153. However, I assume the DMW1158 is similar. The manual for the DMW1158 is here: http://www.danby.ca/cms/uploads/products/en_manual/DMW1158BL_EFOM2_%28web%29.pdf . Additional Danby microwaves are listed here http://www.danby.com/products/cooking . If you go to any of the links, the manual will be available from the Literature tab.

I hope this helps.

How to unlock digitals butons?


Hi there,

It sounds like you've activated the child-lock - this would disable all of the digital buttons.

To switch the child-lock OFF, simply press and hold the START button for about 4-5 seconds until "LOCKED" disappears from the display.

To switch the child-lock ON, press "STOP/CLEAR" button once, then press and hold the START button for about 4-5 seconds until "LOCKED" illiminates on the display.

If the buttons aren't working and "LOCKED" is not displayed, then you may have a defective touch control pad.

Hope this helps - please let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

Microwave doesn't work


Sounds like you have a faulty control panel. I would use a meter and test the power from the control board to the magnetron and circuit board. Chances are the control panel is faulty

Control keys are locked


You may lock the control panel to prevent the microwave from being accidentally started or used by children.

To lock the control: press and hold the clear/off pad for about 3 seconds. The display will show "lock" and will then return to the time of day. A small "L" will be displayed to remind you that the control panel is locked. The display will show "lock" if anyone tries to use the microwave. On some models, you press and hold the "5" and "7" pads simultaneously for three seconds.

To unlock the control: press and hold the clear/off pad for about three seconds. Or on some models you press and hold the "5" and "7" simultaneously for three seconds
