    Turn on microwave and it made a load sparking noise. From that point on it will turn on but it will not heat up.

When this happens, what is shown in the display? Is it the same displayed info each time?

This is usually a failing membrane keypad, but your reply will help me know if it's that or some simpler.

Frigidaire FFMO1611LS microwave does not beep


Hi Paul R - Reset the microwave by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If unit continues to not beep, then it may be experiencing a wiring failure or faulty board. A professional is recommended to properly assist with the repairs. You can often locate a certified technician by visiting the manufacturer website.

You haven't said how long you cut power for when you flipped the breaker. These things sometimes have heavy capacitors in them taht will take a time to discharge and allow everything to reset. Before you call a service tech, unplug the unit (or flip the breaker, whatever) and leave the unit disconnected for half an hour. This may just be all you need to do.

KitchenAid Superba Microwave/Oven, Microway Door message


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

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

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you only need a switch, you can order one from us for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

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

Microwave/Convection Oven has mind of its own: turns to Crisp mode on its own.


Yes this is a touchpad issue. As you have noted the crisp button is stuck and this is the cause of this. You can try removing the keypad and push up the pressed button. If its jammed then replacing it is the only way.

Kitchenaid microwave oven KBMC140HSO


I started having the same problem with my KBMC140HSSO. You cannot see the error codes without disassembling the control panel (the codes are on another display that covered by the front panel). After doing so I found the error code to be F2, E3 which is "Key held down too long, or key shorted". I am ordering a replacement keypad and will report back if this fixes the problem.
