SOURCE: Microwave will not turn off

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

There may 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 think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

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

SOURCE: display not workign

Sadly, the display tube is not available separately, so the only way to fix this is to replace the board, at a whopping $181.48!

One trick that helps is to remove the control panel assembly, take the circuit board out of the frame and very carefully wipe the front of the glass and the rear surface of the control panel frame's display window.

Use a soft cloth with alcohol-based (non-ammonia) window cleaner.

That will brighten it up quite a bit.

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

Be sure to unplug the oven before you do any disassembly.

Frigidaire microwave model ffmv164lsa constant beeping, with little symbol to the top left hand side of the clock displaying with the beep.


Hopefully no one sprayed a liquid cleaner directly onto or near the keypad...

From page 23 of the owner's manual:

"Wipe the microwave oven inside and out with a soft cloth and and warm (not hot) mild detergent solution. Then rinse and wipe completely dry."

"Clean the outside surface of the microwave with soap and a clean damp cloth. Dry with a clean soft cloth. To prevent damage to the operating parts of the oven, do not let water seep into any vents or openings."

If there is moisture damage, it may dry out by itself if you leave it overnight with the door open. If not, the warranty would be voided and you'd have to arrange for out of warranty service.

If there is no moisture damage, and it failed not due to outside forces, then you should contact the manufacturer to arrange warranty service.

Frigidaire microwave ffmv164lsa constant beeping, with little symbol to the top left hand side of the clock displaying with the beep. Keypad not responding to presses. Unplugged the unit the problem r


Hey JT Tai, I appreciate your post!
The symbol at the top left hand side of your display could be child lock symbol or vent symbol. If it is the child lock you should be able to press and hold the stop/cancel button down for 3 seconds to release the child lock.

If the light is on for the vent I would seek assistance from a professional for proper diagnosis and repair to be completed on your microwave. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Can you turn down the beep on a Frigidaire microwave


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you want to turn down the beep on your Frigidaire microwave, model# PLMV169DC. You are not able to turn down the beep, but you are able to turn it completely off. If you wish to have your microwave oven operate with no audible signals, touch Help, the number 2 and Clear/Off. To cancel and restore the audible signal, touch Help, the number 2 and START. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Unlock frigidaire microwave model FFMV164LSA


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are trying to unlock your Frigidaire microwave, model# FFMV164LSA. This has two different meanings to me. First, if the door is locked and will not come open, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Secondly, the control lock is on. If the control lock is on, you will need to press and hold down the "Stop/Cancel" button for 3-5 seconds, to unlock it. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your microwave status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire microwave not working


Is the door closing properly? Do you hear it "click" when it closes. A lot of times the problem is the door switch. It is located inside the microwave. They are made of plastic and they break. If the switch is broken, the magnetron(microwaves) will not start.

Samsung Microwave Oven Model smh918713 beeping


You may need to replace the keypad. I found there was moisture causing the problem when we boiled water on the right side of our stove which is under the keypad. I let the microwave dry out for several days and now only use the left side of stove when we boil water and have not had the problem.
