If your microwave has stopped working it could be the automatic shutdown feature. This occurs when it has overheated. Just unplug it and open the door and wait for about 10 minutes for it to cool off and it should work fine.

    Help it just says reset and the buttons won't work .I took the panel off because it said or some one said it had a reset button , cant find it

    Microwave ovens don't generally have reset buttons.

    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 about 5 minutes.

    If the keys still fail to respond, you have a bad keypad.

    There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

    You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

    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.

    Feel free to contact me
    directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

    Sanyo microwave clock reset

    This is the generic instructions to set the clock. I have visited the sanyo site to aquire a owners manual with no success in locating one. This being said, here are the instructions.

    1. Unplug the unit for a minute then plug unit in.
    2. Press the clock (clock/timer) button once.
    3. Using the keypad, input the time you wish to set.
    4. Press the clock (clock/timer) button once.
    5. Press the stop/clear button, Time should remain.
    Hope this works, if not, let me know.

    Please take the time to give this solution a fix ya rating.

    Keypad Problems

    Sometimes a keypad may not work because the door switches are faulty. When the door switches are working correctly it will allow the keypad to operate. They tell the microwave that the door is closed and the unit is dafe to use.

    Many models have 3 door switches, it's wise to get all 3 replaced at once.

    There's no reset button, only a a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in and see if ti works.

    A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

    It may be the fuse, which is usually located on the floor of the oven behind the control panel, between the door switches, or on the filter board near where the cord comes into the unit.

    If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

    Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

    Microwave display window shows locked!!!!

    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.

    Let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

    There may be grease or soot on the control panel causing a lockup, and it may need circuit board cleaning / repair or a new keypad.
