-SE- error means you have a shorted keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

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" 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 would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

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

Error Code F8E5


F8E5 Exhaust air template detection failure 1. Press CANCEL - CANCEL - START, verify failure code, and then press CLOCK/OPTIONS to display the exhaust air temperature sensor reading. Verify the sensor temperature reading is at room temperature (typically 50?F to 90? [10?C to 32?C]) and verify failure code. If failure code matches complaint, continue to Step 2. 2. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power. 3. Disconnect sensor from ACU PCBA. 4. Measure HF NTC resistance between connector pins and confirm reading is between 9.5k??and 10.5k??at room temperature. If measurement is not correct, or if a short or open circuit is found, replace sensor. 5. Replace all parts and panels before operating. 6. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power. 7. If the sensor temperature reading is still not correct, replace ACU PCBA. 8. If failure does not appear, stop.

Beneath the time on the clock. The word "mute"


I have 2 possible solutions for you.
1) press and hold the 0 button for 3 seconds. This may only turn the clock display on or off, but may also mute or unmute the beeps.
2) unplug the unit for 30 seconds to a minute. Plug it back in and it should be reset.

We do not have a owners manual and we just purchased the new LG Convention range LSB5682SW and we would like to know how to set the timer and the clock. I am not that savvy when it comes to th ese things...


You can get the manual here
http://www.lg.com/us/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=LSB5682SW&matchedModelCode=NOT_MATCHED&searchEngineModelCode=LSB5682SW&initialTab=documents&targetPage=support-product-profile#
SETTING THE CLOCK
The CLOCK pad is used to set the clock. The clock has been
preset at the factory for 12 hours operation. When the range
is first plugged in, or when the power supply to the range has
been interrupted, the timer in the display will show with
power failure "PF". You can make a choice between 12-hour
clock and 24-hour clock (refer to the page 28):
1. Press CLEAR/OFF pad.
2. Press CLOCK pad.
3. Press 1, 3, 0 pads to set the time if the time of day is 1:30 (whatever the time is choose the correct numbers)

4. Press START pad.
The clock will start.

CHANGING HOUR MODE ON
CLOCK(12hr, 24hr)
Your control is set to use a 12-hour clock. If you would
prefer to have a 24-hour time clock, follow the steps below
1. Press and hold COOK & WARM
pad for 3seconds. "OPt" will be
displayed.
2. Press "1" pad. The display will
show "CLO 12H"
3. Press "1" pad to switch between
the "12H" and "24H".
4. Press START pad to accept the
desired change
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Seems like microwave is locked on clock


You have to set a time (any time) to use.

Press CLOCK, press number 2 then 2 then 2 again and then press CLOCK again. Does it say 2:22?

Everything should now work.

Do not run Empty, do not use any metal in there and do not use alot (MW kills all the vitamins and nutrition in food - like eating MUD for your body) .... and don't forget to reset the CLOCK ;-)

I press time to cook and timer runs very fast and dings.


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

The display lights are all solid and nothing happens when you press on the keys. I have a GE Sensor Microwave. I bought it in September of this year. Came home from work one day, went to heat something up...

You may have a failed keypad.

I have an Emerson Microwave Oven MW8997W and cannot change the hour (time) on my clock. How do I change the clock? Debbie


If your keys do not work at all, you probably have a bad keypad, in which case I'd ask you to reply back. In the meantime:

SETTING THE CLOCK

When the microwave oven is plugged into an outlet,
the oven will display " 0:00 "

1. Press the CLOCK button; the hour digit will blink
and the clock indicator will light.

2. Press the number keys to set current hour.

3. Press the number keys to set current minute.

4. Press AM/PM to choose AM or PM.

5. Press the CLOCK button again; the display will
show the present time. After the clock has been set,
the time will appear with blinking colon, unless
the oven is cooking or defrosting.

You can actually download your owner's manual here
