Hi, am afraid it sounds like the power control module is bad. The new module retails for about $155, APP has it for $129. You can try replacing the module, or purchase a new microwave. Over the range microwaves start at about $280-$350 and can go up to $1000 depending on brand/features. Microwave installation is typically $35-$50.

When I attempt to enter anything with the keypad the display says "locked". Is there some way to unlock it.


Many microwaves have children locks. Of course they are for safety reasons. they are for tricking the little kids from playing with the big people toys.

Process A
To Turn the Control Lockout Feature On or Off:
  1. Make sure the microwave oven and timer are off.
  2. Press and hold the CANCEL keypad for 3 seconds.
  3. 2 tones will sound and "LOC" or a padlock icon will be displayed (indicating the control is LOCKED).
  4. Repeat to unlock. Again, 2 tones will sound.
Process B
To Turn the Control Lockout Feature On or Off:
  1. Make sure the microwave oven and timer are off.
  2. Press and hold the START keypad for 5 seconds.
  3. 2 tones will sound and "L" will be displayed (indicating the control is LOCKED)
  4. Repeat to unlock. Again, 2 tones will sound.
Hope this helps?

Brand new microwave never used turns on for 2 seconds then shuts off. Model hmt5750. Callers customer support, they have no idea. Before I call a repairman does anyone have an idea I may try.


Take it back to the place of purchase and demand a replacement, you are covered under warranty. The problem could be caused by a faulty magnetron.

The seconds just flies by. If I want 20 seconds or whatever, it goes by in about 2 seconds


Hello joy34
If its a electronic pad in the micro then the PC board will be the problem and needs to be replaced, if its a turn button then its just the timer thats faulty on it you will then just need to replace the timer

Turns on and runs for 2 seconds before turning off


See if this describes what's happening:
  • Put in time, push start and unit runs for 2 seconds, relay clicks, unit goes off. Cook time on display goes off and clock time comes back. Bad upper interlock switch and charred connector
If so, see http://207.234.249.73/mwd/safety.txt , http://207.234.249.73/mwd/disassembly.txt and http://207.234.249.73/mwd/doorsw.txt

Otherwise, if the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will stop the cook cycle.

That may be a loose connection in the wiring between the inverter, magnetron, and/or control board, or maybe one of those components has failed.


Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

Microwave turns off after 1-2 seconds


It turned out to be the three door attachments that weren't lined up. It has been fixed. We almost bought a new one because Samsung referred us to a service that would have charged way too much to be worth it even thought the machine is only 3 or so years old. Luckily, we looked further. A local independent appliance fixer came to the house and took care of it within a few hours of my call! Yea!
