FMV156DCC stopped working. - Frigidaire Microwave Microwave Oven

    Thanks for your quick reply. I did watch the video yesterday and pulled the front grill and control panel open. Door latch and switches appear to operate normally, as the light goes off when the door closes. The control panel operates, as well. However, when selecting any type of cooking, the timer begins to countdown when selecting start, but there is no indication of cooking. When the microwave stopped working the other day, it had been operatiing for about two minutes while cooking a baked potato, then suddenly stopped by itself. There was no sparking or indication of any faults or errors, other than it just stopped. Thanks!

It may be a blown fuse or thermal cutout / thermostat on either the magnetron or oven cavity.

We have the basic FMV156 service manual and have uploaded it here to help you.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range grille and control panel assembly in under 5 minutes. Then you can access most of it for testing and part replacement.

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

You likely have a failed bottom door switch, or that switch's mount is loose, misaligned, or broken.

The service manual will help you with disassembly, etc. It is here.

Won't heat and turntable doesn't turn


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even something in the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system mangnetron down, for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.
