Microwave arcing


The magnet item is known as a magnetron, as far as your pcb is concerned check for shorts on the hv diode, be advised microwaves can kill you, never work with the cover off and always discharge the HV capacitor, if you don't know how to do this then do yourself a favour and get the lid back on and buy a new one, If you do know then good luck!!

HELLO. I HAVE A GE MICROWAVE MOD JE1860WB. THE MONITOR READ "F3" CODE. WHAT IS THAT?


Hello,
The F3 code means that the Key panel also called touch pad is shorted. This code usually comes up when when the Microwave detects the shorted panel continuously for over 60seconds.

To correct this error, you have to Replace the key panel also called the touch pad.

Thanks.

Hi, I have a Maytag stove and unfortunately have lost my manual. In the last couple of days there has been an alarm going off with F1 appearing on the display panel. Once at 5:30 am and at 1:00 am. Could...


With Maytag Ovens the F1 error means Defective touch pad or clock (ERC). This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present. (If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself you need to arrange a repair technician to look at it for you)

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.
2. Gain access inside the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.
4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound).
7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Regards, Kat (please leave feedback, thanks)

My Maytag microwave has error code "SE" on the


SE error means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

The full model number would be MMV1153AAB or MMV1153AAW and denotes color.

On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly ("control panel/switch" as it's called) which comes with a new keypad.

It's actually a pretty easy do it yourself job.

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.

Next, disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

Some connectors have a lock:

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

You can get the part from the Pros here. They're our favorite supplier.

You can also find helpful exploded view diagrams at that link.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Normally the problem is a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.
