Question about Frigidaire FMV156EM Microwave Oven

1 Answer

My FRIGIDAIRE FMV156DCA microwave stopped working. I can program a selection and the timer begins to count down but the microwave doesn't start and the turntable doesn't turn. Is there a fuse or fusable resistor involved?

    Hi

    Thanks for your help. But it is a sagging door causing switch actuation problems. Don't see any adjustments for door or switch (up and down). There is a switch bracket in and out adjustment but doesn't seem to help.

If you remove the outer shell, you should be able to see the fuse which is in by the power inverter. This model may have two fuses but i'm not positive. There are a few wires in this model that do have fusible links built in them. Best bet is to use a voltmeter and trace some wiring

I need to change the interior light bulb in my Frigidaire over the counter microwave. The model # is FMV156DCA.


Good Morning Evelyn, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Here are some simple troubleshooting tips to help replace the light bulb on your Frigidaire microwave, FMV156DCA.

    ·First, disconnect power to your microwave. This can be done by either unplugging it or at the circuit breaker panel.
    ·To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover (light cover may become very hot, do not touch glass when light is on).
    ·Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent watt bulb available from parts distributor or the manufacturer directly. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. Bulbs larger than 30 watts are NOT recommended.
    ·Close light cover and secure with screw removed in step 2.

    I hope this information proves to be helpful. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to reconnect.

I'd check to make sure you don't have a door switch that isn't functioning properly. Also, might be a control panel or control panel interface issue.

FMV156DCA turns on, cook indicator lights but not cooking, timer counts down fine too


Hello epinvegas - Try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, then it sounds like the microwave has a faulty magnetron, wiring failure or control board. Contact a professional to assist with the repairs.

I would replace the door switches and set up the door gap to 1/8" just enough to alow for a little play.
Setting the door square is acheived by slackening the lower door hinge and re tightening it when the door is square.
Hope that helps.

My two year old Frigidaire Microwave suddenly stopped cooking. All of the buttons work. The lights, the fan, the timer, and even the cooking timer operate. It's just that the light goes on and the timer...


Check the plug. If the vault is 110v or 220v etc.

If the plug seems to be right, but still not
working, you should buy a new one
with a good name brand you can trust.
It's better than paying for repairs and future repairs.

Frigidaire won't run


Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
