    Mr. Miller:

    I thank you for taking time helping people. I used chopstick with cloth to remove some grease through the fins then plug LG LMV2053ST microwave oven to power, the display is back to normal. It heat food as normal but there are sound of sparks at top-front-right side of the unit from time to time. I will clean up some more. Can anyone show me how to open up that section so that I can clean it thoroughly? thanks.

I have a old jenn air wall oven and a old jenn air microwave mounted on top. it was a countertop model. when i removed it it was plugged into the top of the oven. would that be a 110 appliance outlet?


The Jenn Air microwave that is mounted above the oven in your unit is 110v 60Hz. The socket in the upper rear right corner of the oven is a 110v 6Hz socket and is where the microwave would be plugged in. If you are going to replace the microwave, you can plug it into that socket. If you would rather not use that socket, you will have to drill a hole in the side of the cabinet holding the over/microwave to get the power cord out.

Microwave is 6 months old. clock won't light up. when i try to set cooking time the inside starts making a clicking sound and a light flashes in the top right inside


Sounds like the waveguide cover has been contaminated with food that has carbonised and burning.
Call a Whirlpool repair agent and get the waveguide cover replaced.
They need to be kept clean and leaving the door open after cooking helps to dry the moisture out in the cavity. Making it last longer.

Emerson Microwave stopped working


Have 1 of 2 choices, the main fuse or the control board for the front switches and clock. primary of the small power transformer has opened. Unplug the unit and take case off and measure the fuse with an ohm meter. if u read 1 ohm or less then fuse is good. then measure across the main power plug tips. If read open then the power transformer is bad. Need to replace the board as not sure if transformer is available.

Crackling sound in microwave vent when power is off


By "powered off" can I assume you mean that it is plugged in and at idle, not cooking, just showing the clock?

If so, I'd say your control board is failing.

If my assumption is wrong, please write back with more details.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.

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

I have a GE profile advantium oven. The oven seems to operate, however the green display is blank with a dash in the upper left corner. Cannot set clock or get any written information from the green...


The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.
