If you have knowledge of how to do this type of thing you sure can, providing the connection is the problem- it very well might not be.
good luck

SOURCE: Frigidaire FMV155DC - defective door interlock switch

I had the problem where the timer continues to count down but turntable doesn't turn, fan doesn't come on and food doesn't heat. Holding the door up worked for awhile but even that temporary method stopped working.

I bought a door interlock switch the cost $23 from an appliance repair place and replaced it myself. It worked like a charm. To replace the switch, you need to remove 3 screws that hold the plastic grille above the door, which exposes the 1 screw that is holding the control panel. Remove that screw and slide the control panel up to remove it. There are three switches left of the panel. Note the middle swich has a different part number so I'm not sure what that one is called. The bad one on mine happen to be the bottom one. The switch is held on by a "pin" and tab that holds it in place. Push the tab and spin the switch on its "pin" past the tab to remove. Reverse your step to put the new one on. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Model mh1150xms3 displays F2 and touchpad stops working

F2 on a Whirlpool microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and please do not leave it cooking unattended.

On this model, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

It's actually a pretty easy do it yourself job.

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.

Next, disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.


Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

The part numbers to order are shown below by color you can get it here.

8185286 White
8185288 Biscuit
8185287 Black
8204739 Stainless

SOURCE: frigidaire gallery microwave door sags

Repairing the loose, detached hinge is simple.
First buy a pop rivet tool and 1/8'' or 3mm rivets for about $16 at lowes
Second remove the door. There is a little plastic pop tab on the inside top corner of the door by the hinge that keeps the door from lifting off of the hinge pins. Use a 1 inch putty knife or maybe a butter knife and pry from the bottom crack. Once tab is off the entire door can be lifted off.
Third, line up the little holes in the bracket with the little holes in the microwave face. Insert a pop rivet in the hole and squeeze the tool till it pops off. I put one 3mm rivet on the top hinge and one on the bottom.
No drilling needed on my Fridgidaire PLMV169DCd microwave. I guess u could drill a 1/8'' hole thru the microwave face and the hinge bracket if there isn't one on your model.

My Frigidaire microwave door is sagging and about to fall off

I appreciate your post, Wayne!

From my understanding your Frigidaire microwave door is sagging and about to fall off. This could be an issue with your hinges or door. In order to check if you hinges are not damaged you may need to disassemble your microwave this is not a simple DIY job. I would highly recommend having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid personal injury, future problems, or unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt

Microwave does not come on.....but when i hold up oven door a little it comes on.

Frigidaire microwave FMV156DSB. Turntable don't turn and no heat. Clock, keypad, light and fan works. The guys above looks like they right about either the door or the switches for the latch. This model does have two switches and a fusible switch. Pushing up a bit on the oven door from the bottom right corner when its closed make mine turn on if you set it to cook. Switches numbered 8(x2) on the schematic has part number 5304440026 $18.05. Fusible switch has part number 5303319559 $30.36. Have'nt changed them because it may be the door hinge is bent since the door latch is made out of plastic. Also looks like a real pain to take apart just to get to the switches. I will try to bend the door hinge to see if it fixes it. "" -- Kirk, "Huh?" -- Scotty, "The doors, Mr. Scott." --Kirk, "Aye. I'm workin' on 'em."

FMV 156DSB Timer and light works, but does not heat unless you push up on bottom of door.

Slacken off the lower hinge screws and re set the door to the correct height, then tighten them back up.
That should sort that out.

Food won't heat up

Hello, I had the same problem, and just fixed mine. Start by turning on your microwave (on mine, the light turned on and timer worked, but the fan nor the plate turned)... push the door upward and see if the microwave turns on... (mine did). so far so good. open the door and take the upper hinge cap off with flat head screwdrive. take the door off and place a small washer on the bottom hinge, put the door back on. your microwave should be good now. essentially, the door just needs to be pushed up a bit so it will work.
good luck, hope that works for you...

We need to change the door on our microwave. We have the new door, but can't find anything in the manual about removing the old door. It is a Frigidaire Gallery series above range microwave. Any...

The door should come off fairly easily. All you have to do on MOST microwave ovens is open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will come off the hinge pins.

On some models, there may be a small hinge pin on the top hinge that you remove, then lift up.

You may have to remove the grill panel above the door (if equipped) to allow for clearance for the door to come off.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this helpful.

Frigidaire microwave door fallen off

I had the same problem. I removed the door and used a rivet tool. I checked to make sure the door cleared the rivet head, which was nearly flat, so there would not be any microwave leakage.

Microwave oven stopped working

OMG!!! This was perfect. I had the same problem. Timer was on but the fan nor the table turned. Just when I was about to take the thing and chuck it in the trash, I thought I'd give the above method a try. I turned the microwave on, and nudged the door sligthly upwards.... miracle! it started to work. to make it permanent, I took the door off (the cap on the inside of the door, on the upper hinge needed to be removed with a flat head screwdriver, very easy, just pry it off). Once I took the door off, I placed a small washer on the bottom hinge to raise the door slightly. Put the door and hinge cap back on... and Voila! The microwave works now. Thanks for the help guys...
