Question about Frigidaire PLMV168 Microwave Oven

Open Question

I have a Frigidaire microwave, model PLMV168CC1, that has begun sparking when in use. There is no metal in the microwave, but each time it is turned on sparks come from the receptacle for the temperature probe. Is this problem fixable or has my microwave died?

Fan & Surface Light not working on Frigadaire Microwave Oven. Model PLMV168CC1

Hi J W, thank you for your post! Let's try resetting the microwave by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the unit on. If both the fan and light continues to be inoperable, then there is a possibility that the control board is experiencing a communication error, a wiring failure or loose connection to the light socket. I would recommend reaching out to a qualified technician or alternatively, visit the manufacturer website for a comprehensive listing of appliance techs in your area that can further assist you.

Frigidaire microwave plmv168cc1 makes humming noise when door closed

Chances are that the secondary (cook) relay on the control circuit board is shorted, meaning that the oven is actually cooking any time the door is closed.

You can test that by putting in a cup of water, shutting the door, and letting it go for about 30 seconds, then checking the water temperature.

This is dangerous, and can lead to a fire, so please unplug the oven until it is repaired.

The relay can be replaced for far less than the cost of a new control circuit board.

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