While removing the screws of old light for replacing it with new the connections could be loose. check that first.
if its perfect than the problem is with main circuit board.
We regularly repair these control board assemblies for only $32.50 nationwide, and that's much cheaper than replacing the board.

I shorted out the counter lights on my frigidair microwave. The microwave works but not the lights. I've replaced the bulbs. What next?


The metal base may have fused together from electrical arcing when the old bulb was removed. The entire bulb receptacle (socket) will have to replaced. If you cannot do that yourself, the cost would be excessive. Just live without the light as long as the microwave gets the job done.

My Microwave mysteriously starts for no reason and I cannot stop it unless I open the door


This is due to fault in the touch pad or the front control unit. There is dirt or moisture which triggers the start to function on the processor board. You need to remove the front panel and remove the touch pad /controls, try and dry using a dryer to warm. If there is no result the pads must be replaced. Also check for clogging of insects within the board which can trigger the start function or malfunction. remove and clean the board.

I was washing the Frigidaire microwave today, and now the buttons do not work. I see the time, and the light turns on; I unplugged the microwave and plugged it back again, and the buttons still do not...


Some moisture has probably made its way into the touch pad. You might try heating it a little with a blow dryer on low heat to try and dry up the moisture inside the touch pad or just unplug it for a day or so and see if it will dry up on its own. If it does not start working the touch pad would need to be replaced. Hope that helps.

Touchpad is not working


Hello :

If touch pad has gotten wet, then allow to dry for several days. Avoid spraying cleaning liquid near touch pad.
Check for insect infestation. Insects (cockroaches most frequently) will appear under clear surface of touch pad or under readout window; they like the warmth of the circuit boards.
Place window mesh over vent to keep insects out.

good luck .

please rate !

Control panel went off and hence it stopped working


It may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille or on the floor of the oven behind the control panel or between the door switches.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

When checking TCOs or thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

If the cavity thermostat needs to be checked or replaced you'll need to pull the oven from the wall.

You can download Frigidaire / Whirlpool installation instructions here.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

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.

Night Light


Your Control Key Pad is a circuit with each function and button a switch. The pad on your TV Remote, and Telephone is no different. The Key Pad is failing, It will only get worse. Determine if you can replace the Touch (Key) Pad. Not the Control Circuit, just the Touch Pad. Sometimes you can get it seperate. It connects by a Flex Cable to the Control Circuit.
