Question about LG LMV1630ST Microwave Oven

1 Answer

LMV1630st sparked and then stopped working.

Last night I was defrosting an item. I open the door to check if it was done. When I pressed clear / stop, a spark came from the right side of the cooking area. The microwave went completely dead. Nothing works now. It tripped the breaker. I reset the breaker and still nothing works.

This microwave was working perfectly last night and doesn't even look like it has power today. We have done nothing to it. Please help. It is a Kenmore 721.62624200.


First, check to see if the circuit breaker has tripped. Then check to make sure it is firmly plugged in to the outlet. After that, it is time for a technician.

How do I unlock the key panel


Opening the door while the oven is cooking will greatly shorten the life of the door switches and lead to failure.
Always hit "Stop" first unless the recipe calls for it.
The instructions for the child lock are in the owner's manual.
To set the lock, press Stop/Clear, then hold the "0" pad for more than four seconds. You will hear two beeps and the display will show "LOCKED".

To unlock, hold the "0" pad for more than four seconds. You will hear two beeps and the display will no longer show "LOCKED".

In the future be careful not to use too much liquid in exterior cleaning of the microwave. To recover what has been damaged that depends on the nature of the problem. If you had liquid seep inside the microwave during cleaning the best solution seems to be to unplug and stop using your microwave (to prevent any further shorting or electronic damage to the control panel. Give the microwave at least a couple of days to dry. If you can gently warm the affected area with a heat lamp or regular incandescent bulb of some kind, it may help to evaporate any liquid that remains. Be very careful not to melt anything by getting it too close or getting it too hot.
If this doesn't resolve the problem, it is possible that the control panel has sustained some damage and may need to be replaced... but only as a last resort.

When I press the clock button, the microwave turns on and starts counting down from 30 seconds. The stop/clear button will not work to stop it. I have to open the door to stop it. I unplug it but it...


Hello :

It could be bad door switch or loose door switch mount . 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 .


good luck .

How do I replace a LG LMV1630ST microwave oven door handle?


Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

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

Model R-1460, when I shut the door it runs but doesn't heat up. What needs to be done to fix it?


Do you mean that when you close the door, the fan comes on? If so, it sounds like a bad door switch. Probably the secondary interlock switch.
This failure is caused by opening the door when the unit is in cook mode. On ALL microwaves, not just one or two brands.......
Be sure to push the stop button before opening the door to add or stir... Or wait for the cook cycle to end. (This is why microwaves have a two step function on the stop/clear button. Hit stop once to stop cook mode and twice to reset timer).
You should use an ohm meter to check all 3 switches. The switch can be either stuck 'closed' or physically closed but not 'making' electrically.

R-209BK Sharp Microwave buttons inoperable


I had this problem too:
it turns out that it (apparently) just needed some 'warm-up' time!

After being plugged in for about 15 to 30 minutes,
the buttons suddenly "came to life"...

Note that when it's flashing 88:88 you are supposed to _start_ with the 'Stop/Clear' button. After that, set the clock (press "Clock", enter the time with the number pad, then press Clock again).

Hope that helps.

Microwave continues to run when the door is closed


Did you pressed the stop/clear button? or disconnect the micro.. for a couple of hours and try again?

It works even if I open or close the door.


if thats a microwave.. then the sensor of the closed door is broken.. thats why it worked even when open.. and that is really dangerous...
so.. your best bet would be opening it and find the broken thing that tells the microwave when its closed...

that thing is usually the little secures attach to close the oven..

if its not a microwave, the problem might still be something similar to this..
