Question about Frigidaire FMV156DC Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Frigidaire FMV156DCC We recently had a storm which caused us many electrical problems at our home. We have fixed all issues and replaced many electronic devices. The last I need to either fix or replace is our microwave. The timer light flashes and the interior light comes on when I open the door, but nothing happens when I touch the keypad. Do you think I just need to replace keypad or do you think its something else? Thanks

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.

If it doesn't would suspect you have a problem with your control board.

We regularly repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

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

Sanyo EM-SL40S microwave everything seems to be working fine but food doesn't get hot?


see this causes and fix it. GOD BLESS YOU
Power Diode

A diode is an electronic component that readily passes current in one direction only and blocks the flow of current in the opposing direction. If your microwave's diode has become defective, your microwave will not heat and you will hear a buzzing noise. Test the diode to determine if this is the cause of your problem. Replace it if it is defective.


High Voltage Capacitor

A capacitor is an electrical device which stores electricity. A defective capacitor may be why your microwave is not heating but you are hearing a buzzing or humming noise. The capacitor will have to be tested to determine if this is the cause of your problem. A defective capacitor will have to be replaced before your microwave will work again. Make sure you discharge the capacitor before you test it, though.


Magnetron

A defective magnetron is the third possible cause of why your microwave is not heating, but you can hear a buzzing noise. Test your microwave's magnetron. Replace it if it is defective.


Thermoprotector If the microwave doesn't heat the thermoprotector may have tripped. This is a safety device to prevent the microwave from overheating. It can be tested for continuity to see if it's blown.

Main Control Board If the microwave doesn't heat the main control board may be defective. This is not common. When a microwave doesn't heat the problem is usually within the high voltage circuit; either the high voltage capacitor, diode, transformer or magnetron.
High Voltage Transformer If the microwave does not heat, the high voltage transformer might be burned out. Microwave ovens produce a very high voltage in order to power the magnetron antenna, which emits the energy that cooks the food.

WHEN TRYING TO SELF CLEAN OUR KENMORE ELECTRIC RANGE WE GET THE E1-F5 LIGHT?


The E1 - F5 error code indicates that the oven door lock assembly is not operating. The oven will not begin the self clean cycle unless the oven door is properly locked. This failure is normally caused by a failed door lock assembly. In rare instances, it can be caused by a failed control board or a wiring failure. The normal troubleshooting for this problem is to unplug the range and check the wire harness connections between the control board and the door lock assembly. The first image below shows the access information for the components in this model of range. The second image shows the wiring diagram with the door lock circuit highlighted. If you are able to unplug the range and check the wiring connections, you can likely fix this problem yourself. If the wiring connections are okay, the next step in troubleshooting is to replace the door lock assembly (part W10107820). You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Replacing this part will likely fix your problem. If you replace the door lock assembly and still have the same problem then the electronic oven control board may also need to be replaced. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

What does the F5 code mean?


F5 error message most often indicates a failed electronic control (although it can sometimes be caused by a failed oven temperature sensor. The sensor should be checked before replacing the control. It should read about 1100 ohms when at room temperature.

Microwave caused lights to dim, then blew out a power strip


the noise you said sounds like the magnetron or h.v. capacitor or h.v. diode blew up,that could have created a voltage spike,as for the power strip fried, i would have someone check your neutral line in the house power panel, if it open or has a hi resistance spot it will in turn make your homes 120/240volt circuits a voltage divider because of a lack of the neutral wire and can cause problems too

Seems like electrical storm fried my Advantium??


This is likely caused by a momentary surge from a distant lightning strike.

Take a look at some of these surge arresters:

Also, your local utility may have them available for lease for a modest fee.
Most of these devices come with an insurance policy that would have replaced your microwave if it had still been damaged.

If I was building homes in our lightning-prone area, I would always suggest the installation of one of these.

Blows line fuse


Check the resistance of the capacitor across the cap terminals and to ground. It should be open. Also check the diode for a short. Lastly, on some models a defective or misaligned door switch can blow fuses.

Hope that helped...

Partial Power Outage


This could be very dangerous.

I would first call your electric company and ask if they have any problems with their lines, etc. We recently had this problem at our home and it was in their circuits.

My mother in law had a similar problem and we caught it in time. In her house, several outlets showed extremely low voltage and the others showed extremely high voltage.

It turned out to be a bad neutral connection on the line going from the pole to the house. The electric company fixed it at no charge.

Also, you or someone you know should measure the voltages coming out of your outlets, or call an electrician right away.

You may have a loose circuit breaker or a bad connection somewhere your electrical panel or elsewhere in your neutral line.

This can lead to destruction of your appliances or even a fire, so please don't delay.
