Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

We have a discontinued model of the frigidair freezer Model FRF170FF. The digital display keeps flashing up the E2 error message and the alarm beeps. It has been like this for two days now but the food is still frozen. The freezer is located in the garage and is properly ventilated.

The error is probably caused by a faulty temperature sensor.

Microwave started beeping while unplugged


If it beeps for just a few seconds after being unplugged from the wall, that's not a problem.

It's likely just the software or hardware feature utilizing a "sanity timer" to alert you when the oven loses line power. It's similar to a freezer alarm or sump pump alarm.

If this doesn't seem to answer your question or address your situation, please e-mail me and remind me of your symptoms and include your full model number as shown on the label.

It could be a relay that is stuck if so hit the microwave firmly. It could also be the magnetron needs replacing.

You didn't mention your brand or model number, so I can only give you a general response.

It sounds like a shorting membrane keypad.

On Samsung's, they will show the error code "SE".

For detailed do it yourself info and/or an estimate, please post a new FixYa help request and include the model, or contact me here with that info.

Microwave Model 40180089700 shows "5E"


You have an error code and probably for good reason. maybe a switch is bad to keep out radiation for closing the door or what ever . If you don't know about these things don't mess with them! They are very dangerous and it can radiate you with out you knowing in some instances. Not worth messing with ,too dangerous for the unknown guy!!!!!

Have samsung american fridge freezer with ice dispenser i bought it second hand the problem is the digital display says the freezer is 20 degrees but its freezing inside also every minute or so we hear a...


If it's American, the temperature probably reads as fahrenheit. If so, 20 degrees F is 12 degrees F below freezing which converts to only -6.67 degrees Celsius.

Domestic freezers should be set to -17 degrees Celsius (= 0 degrees F), so the beeper is warning you that the freezer compartment is far too warm. If it's working correctly and has the temperature control set correctly, then it should achieve the correct temperature if you leave it for 24 hours and do not open the door nor try to use the ice dispenser. If the freezer is full of unfrozen items and so has to cool those down as well, then it may take even longer to reach the correct operating temperature.

Te operating manual for your appliance will tell you how to set the temperature correctly and whether it's possible to select between fahrenheit and Celsius scales. Most models allow you to set an override on the beep alarm as well. I cannot guide you on this without knowing the exact Samsung model.

Please take a moment to rate my reply.

What does error message F5 mean?


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..

I'm not finding the one for for this model online.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If it's a convection model, F5 would be a damper door sensing error, which is usually a bad switch.

More info on switches is here.

One of the damper-related components, either the switch or motor or the damper door may be binding.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

If it's not a convection model, F5 is probably a sensor error.

On some models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
  • Using the sensor feature, the door was opened before steam could be detected. Do not open the door until stream is sensed and time is shown counting down on the display.
  • Steam was not detected in the maximum amount of time. Use Time Cook to heat for more time.
Here's some info from Samsung, which is the actual manufacturer of these ovens:

"Some models are equipped with a sensor that can automatically adjust the oven's heating time based on the amount of steam in the oven. If your microwave is displaying E1, E4, or E5, there may be an issue with the gas sensor. For an E1 error, press the Cancel button and check on the food.

"Other microwaves do not give specific error messages and just display "8888" on the LED. If you get this error message, your microwave needs service.

"If the message is either ERROR or E-6, it indicates a mechanical fault.

"For all error indications, including the SE or 5E error, try unplugging the microwave from the outlet for at least ten minutes and then plug it back in. If the error persists, the microwave may require service. Please use our ASC Locator to find your nearest Authorized Service Center."

Feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

F5 Sensor Error?


Hi,
The failure code list says to replace your Electronic Oven Controll. Contact a Frigidaire parts dealer and check the price and availability.
You will need to give them your make and model number.
Buckle up! It may get expensive!

Good Luck!

I keep getting an f1 message and constant beeping from my oven


F 11 code. it is a touch pad error.
If you just cleaned the control panel it may have water in the panel causing a key to stick.
If after a day or 2 it hasn't dried out - then you will need to replace the touch pad.

Samsung MR6699GB


This model was one of many subject to a recall due to defective membrane keypads.

Details of the recall are here: http://www.allworldauto.com/recalls/NHTSA_03E044000__SAMSUNG_MICROWAVE_MR6699GB_recall_55168.html

Long story short, please unplug it and contact Samsung with you model and serial number at 800-932-3837.

If your serial number was not one subject to a recall, E2 usually means a temperature sensor problem but it may also mean you have a bad door switch.

If it's not in the recall, please post back and I can give you info on checking the other parts.

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