SOURCE: the microwave starts, then stops 2 seconds later

I tried a solution posted on another posting http://www.fixya.com/support/t242480-stops_cooking by placing the conductive plastic behind the control panel and it worked.

SOURCE: Microwave Oven Does Not Start Cooking

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

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

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

If yours is not shown at the parts site or manual site linked above, Please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.

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

Replace the fuse with a ceramic fuse from Home depot! costs less than $3 and it will fix the problem. I had all the same problems as everyone else, you name it my microwave had it! you must remember replace it with a ceramic fuse! not a glass one. I know people say its the switchboard and all that nonsence but I promise you, the fuse plays a majoe roll in the microwave not working properly. Even though it doesnt look broken, a junky fuse can cause your appliance to do very strange things. I replaced mine 6 months ago and it works like its fresh out of the box.

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.

It may just be a fuse. Some models have more than one.

Otherwise, I would suggest that you check all the door switches and mounts.

See:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

Otherwise, feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & DIY help and/or an estimate.

Microwave won't set clock


It is most likely the keypad control board has been damaged, first! unplug the microwave oven for 5 minutes, if this works the micopressor will reset, if it fails the control board will need to be replaced, a costly venture.

None of the Microwave buttons on the panel seem to be working. I tried replugging it many times but to no avail. l am unable to start the microwave. How do I get the microwave panel working and start...


Could the Child Lock feature be active on the microwave? If it is active, there may be a "box" symbol formed by the LCDs in the display. Try pressing and holding the Stop/Clear button for 3 seconds (or a little more). You should hear a long beep and the clock should return to the display (if it was set).

I do not have the DMW1153. However, I assume the DMW1158 is similar. The manual for the DMW1158 is here: http://www.danby.ca/cms/uploads/products/en_manual/DMW1158BL_EFOM2_%28web%29.pdf . Additional Danby microwaves are listed here http://www.danby.com/products/cooking . If you go to any of the links, the manual will be available from the Literature tab.

I hope this helps.

Buttons dont work on danby microwave


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 maybe an hour.

If it still isn;t working I would contact Danby Customer Service US / Canada.
