    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.

    (It may have a bad keypad, which we can replace for $39.95 plus part costs.)

That's common - it's a problem on your control panel. We regularly repair these control panels for only $32.50 nationwide. For critical safety info & detailed disassembly info, see our link in our FixYa listing here: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk Let me know if you need further help. I appreciate your kind rating!

I have the same problem with mine!!! I spent 58 dollars to have a 6 dollar diode replaced. Now 8 months later... same prob. Replaced again myself and working fine again. Just make sure you label the wires while working on it. I didn't and it cost me 2 new fuses! Hope this helps.

I'd say you have a contaminated or failing keypad or possibly residue on the boar dor where the keypad connects to the board.

Is it possible that some spray cleaner got into the controls?

I always recommend that users instead spray cleaner on a soft cloth then wipe the control panel.

Also, I always recommend non-ammonia cleaners since ammonia can crack and damage plastic.

Otherwise, the spray can get into the controls and lock it up or make it act odd.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

The keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.

We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide 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.

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 from the tag on the oven here.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)

But if when you start to microwave, if the turntable, inside light and internal light are not on, then you instead have a bad door switch or door switch mount, in which case you should see this:

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

It may be an open fuse, magnetron TCO or oven cavity TCO.

Accessing the oven cavity for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
