Question about Frigidaire Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Fridgidaire 1000 W microwave PLMV169DCD. It worked on night and the next morning the range light work but no internal light or keypad. There was one lite bar on the display which I thought may have been telling me to replace the fuse. I unplugged it and then plugged it back in and the unit went entirely dead. I replaced the ceramic fuse and still have the same problem.

    Thanks. I believe this may be a $699 Micro wave. If so I may take the chance on replacing the control board myself.

No this is a frequent problem and is the control board. It can be only a short in one place of board however there is not solution you need a new board but in the case of a microwave the replacing of a board mean replacing the microwave since the cost of $124 and the possibility of future other part replacing does not worth it.

We have here below the parts layout of your microwave where you can see the control board and cost.

Fridgidaire microwave won't shut off


Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!

I see that you are having difficulties with your Frigidaire microwave not shutting off. This could be a possible issue with your control panel or door switch. I would recommend performing a reset on your microwave and that can help clear out any potential miscommunications. To perform a reset you can flip the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help resolve your issue you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Microwave is turning itself on


First, do not leave this machine plugged in until it is serviced. If this is a KHMS155LSS, there is a very high probability that you have a keypad short. This defect can cause the machine to start on its own at ANYTIME, at night, while you are away, at work etc. Contact Whirlpool Customer Service and ask for Safety Dept immediately. They will most likely send A&E out to fix it. Although it will fix the problem, if the keypad fails again, the self start logic defect is still present. You should be under warranty if it is above model. I almost had a fire this past Monday, Labor Day, 9/7/09 when my machine self started at 3 AM with a package of bacon left in to thaw for the morning. What a somey mess. Chinese made garbage.

You most likely had a power surge and blew a fuse. First unplug the unit,then remove the top grill. There will either be one screw on top of the control pad or 2 on the left side. open the control panel and look for a fuse that has a ceramic center and replace it with a 20 amp one. You can find these at the hardware store

Some buttons work, some don't.


The keypad may be bad. Most often they go bad due to moisture from cleaners being sprayed directly on them or steam from the cooktop when the vent fan is not used.

They can also go bad when the unit is stored in an unheated environment where there's a lot of air temperature change (hot during the day, cold at night, etc.)

It may also be some residue on the connections where the keypad plugs into the control board. Unplugging then replugging the keypad can sometimes clean them.

In other cases, a new keypad is needed.
