Question about Goldstar MV-1526 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Goldstar MV1526B Went to change the night light for the first time, and when I turned the bulb it separated from the "screw- in" part and shorted out the whole microwave. No circuit breakers were tripped on the house panel. HELP!! Ken B.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

<-- I see and repair this problem on a regular basis. Details are here.

This failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line, as the warning label near the light socket advises.

This causes a failure on the control circuit board.

The lights can can be inoperable, or stuck on, or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

You can get it your smart board repaired or order a replacement part number WB27X10935 here.

Whether you choose repair or replacement, the first step is to remove the controller assembly.

Here
is a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Next, disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

Some connectors may have a lock. positivelock.jpg

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

If you choose repair, do not disconnect the keypad connector and do not remove the board screws. Leave the controller assembly intact.

I have a goldstar model mv1526b microwave it has a weird hum and wont heat. Everything else seems ok.


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

The fan started by itself and it will not turn off.


I would bet RY4 or RY5 on your control circuit board is shorted.

HOW TO CHALGE LIGHT BULB


disconnect the oven from power supply. If the lamp of your microwave is in the most common location, you will need to open the oven by unscrewing the screws on the rear. You will see the lamp behind the control panel. remove and replace the bulb

Microwave PLMVZ169 GCB night light push button does not work. Replace the light bulb. Push button still does not work. The work light does when I push the night light it stays on. Just wondering how to...


Q - While trying to change the light bulb on the oven, the bulb broke. When it did, it threw the circuit breaker and the whole oven went out. After resetting the breaker, everything on the oven works except there is no power to either light socket. Any ideas or suggestions on what to replace?
A - You tried to change the light bulbs with the power still on.....tsk tsk!!
Hate to say this....but probably blew out part of the circuit on the smart board ( the brains behind the key panel you touch ) when the short blew. The light relay on the smart board may have been damaged but 9 out of 10 times when I check them, the board itself is damaged.
check out this problem.
please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.thanks,

How to clean the air filter of my goldstar microwave model # MV1526B/01


That sounds like the charcoal filter. It cannot be cleaned, and must be replaced. From the owner's manual:

CHARCOAL FILTER REPLACEMENT

If your oven is vented inside, the charcoal filter should
be replaced every 6 to 12 months, and more often if
necessary. The charcoal filter cannot be cleaned.

To order a new charcoal filter, contact the Service
Center.

1. Remove the two vent grille mounting screws.
(2 middle screws)

2. Tip the grille forward, then lift it out

To get a new filter, you can try local appliance parts stores or see customer service or find servicers here: http://us.lgservice.com
