Question about Frigidaire PLMV169DC Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave dead after power surge.

Any thoughts one the next step to take regarding my frigidaire plmv169dc. We had a power surge from a storm take out several appliances and the microwave seems to have taken the brunt of it. I have changed the internal thermal fuse and still get no response from the unit. When the power surged, the lights went out and the microwave hummed for about a minute and that was it. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    My 4 year old PLMV168CC1 Frigidaire just went completely dead - no display, the fan and lights also don't work. It is hard-wired in back so I cycled the breaker for that circuit with no luck. I also checked the fuse behind the control panel and it is not blown. I sure wish I could fix it rather than replace it. Any suggestions will be appreciated!

A) The fuse you change was the one on top just behind the control board? correct? Not the one on the door hinge side of the microwave. (as is is the Thermal cutout ) Then most likely took out the control board... i would also check the Capacitor and recifier let me know it this helped?

Hello Michael Fiedler, thank you for your post!

I understand that the light under your Frigidaire microwave will not turn off. Sounds like it could be a possible issue within the switch or receptacle. These intricate parts do require precision and patience, therefore when replacing the exchange of electrical components or removing them from your appliance, I always suggest seeking professional assistance. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Where is the fuse on my microwave Electrolux PLMV169DCD located?


We have three service manuals covering the PLMV169 series, which you can download free:

http://www.microwavedisplay.com/plmv169dcc_sm.pdf
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/glmv169_plmv169_sm.pdf
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/glmv169_plmv169_late_prod_sm.pdf

They're all pretty similar.

You can usually find parts from the Pros here.

If not, contact Electrolux at the phone number on the front of the service manual.

It may be the C/T fuse (thermal fuse located above the magnetron) or the oven cavity thermal cutout, located on the top of the cavity.

Accessing these two parts 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.

You can download Electrolux / Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions
here.

It may also be that there was a power surge which damaged the control circuit board, activating the built-in surge protection.

This is not resettable. The circuit board has to be repaired. We do that for $39.95, details here.

My Frigidaire PLMV 169 DCD has stopped working. The turn table rotates slowly, lights are lit but no cooking being done. The fan is off and no sound at all from within. What could have happened?


HI, have the power sector tested. test the HV capacitor for its operational value. this may be the actual issue but, testing is needed to confirm. there is a running diode as well on the noise filter board. have it tested as well. replace both componets if found to be defective.
