Question about Frigidaire Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Series over the range Microwave Oven model# GLMV168CS1. The issue I am having is that when started, sometimes it runs for a few seconds and stops, the display shows stars, and then says to press the clock button and reset the time and date. After doing this, and restarting, it may work fine or it may start running and stop again, repeating this several times. Other times it works fine. It does seem to be happening more and more. What is the problem??

Unless you've had the magnetron replaced recently, I'd say you have a bad connection on the control panel / circuit board.

I have a frigidaire Electrolux gallery series glmv168cqi microwave. The timer counts down, but the oven doesn't turn on. Sometimes when you open the door the fan turns on.


That would be a failing bottom door switch, or its mount.
My help file on door switches is here:
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/doorsw.txt
There's a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Once the control panel has been removed, you can access the door switches for testing and possible replacement.
There should be a technical manual hidden behind the controller or grille, too.

Trying to remove to two long screw holding out of top. still being held in back help


We have a Gallery Frigidaire series "professional" model and I encountered the same issue where it would tilt forward but not come of wall. Ours had three long bolts thru top cabinet after removing them it tilted but would not come out. I could not find any levers or other bolts holding it to bracket/wall. Turned out it was just the electrical cord routed tightly though upper cabinet that was holding it once we fed slack thru hole it came right down. Hope this helps, Bill C from Babylon NY

It may be a blown thermal cutout / thermostat on either the magnetron or oven cavity.

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

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range grille and control panel assembly in under 5 minutes. Then you can access most of it for testing and part replacement.

My stove is a frigidaire gallery series and my oven won't at all. Error F7 pelase give me a solution


f7 normally is a control issue either the touch pad or the control board inside the unit... turn the breaker off to unit and try to run your hand over the keypad pressing firmly on all the button ..reset the breaker afterwards usually a 50 amp ciruit and see if it still does it.. the ribbon cable on the touch pad has either failed or the control board itself... common problem with these units.
you may luck out as sometimes the keypad will get stuck and by resetting will correct problem...

We need to change the door on our microwave. We have the new door, but can't find anything in the manual about removing the old door. It is a Frigidaire Gallery series above range microwave. Any...


The door should come off fairly easily. All you have to do on MOST microwave ovens is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will come off the hinge pins.

On some models, there may be a small hinge pin on the top hinge that you remove, then lift up.

You may have to remove the grill panel above the door (if equipped) to allow for clearance for the door to come off.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this helpful.

66993 pizza oven microwave oven combo pizza oven not heating error code f1 microwave part works


Hello, please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacement of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric)
F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 911 Series (General Electric/Roper)
F0-F1-FF = Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes- 665 Series (Whirlpool)
F1-E0 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E1 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E2 U/L ERC Errors - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E3 Fuel Type Fail

Kill power 30 seconds-Cancel-Start/Enter-5 seconds-Should see “E” for electric-
“9” for gas-If code changes again-replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 790 Series Electronic Oven Control (Frigidaire)
F1 = Shorted Touch Pad = Electronic Range Control (EOC) Internal check sum error.
Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Kill power 30 seconds - if error returns - replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Thanks

The microwave starts by itself and runs.


HI.although this is quite unusual, it can happen at times when the touch control becomes faulty. simply replacing the Touch control will fix this issue.

Touch control will run about $56.00
