Kenmore Microwave 318279601b

Some of the keys on the microwave were not working so I replaced the control board. Now the board won't respond. Once plugged in the microwave says press clear and set clock but the buttons are not responding. Could it be the fuse ? Light inside turns on and keypad is lit. Full disclosure I did set the microwave *h*a*r*d* on the counter. Too heavy for me to pick up.

    Hi Shane The word hidden by asterisks was thought by Fixya to be unsuitable, but not bad enough to stop you from posting altogether. It may be important, and there is a trick. Someone just posted that a control board "looked okay to the n*a*k*e*d eye". It didn't like that word, I guessed what it was an edited it in. You can EDIT your own post to hide the word but display in *aste*risks*

SOURCE: Kenmore microwave - unresponsive keypad

Repaired the unresponsive keypad on my older Kenmore (model 721.68100): Unplug. Remove integral cover for top and sides which is held in place by 5 metal screws. The cover then slides toward the rear. Unplug two connectors to back of keypad and clean them (I used contact spray cleaner). Some of the components retain a charge even when unplugged.

Why does my microwave not work? It displays what I believe is an error code.

. The SE error code means the microwave has had a Key short error. The control panel or smart board will need to be replaced.

How do I fix the key pad of a Kenmore microwave model 401.80084700?

I don't know of anyway to repair the keypad. Usually replacement (of the keypad/control console) is the only option. But you might want to remove the ribbon cable that connects the keypad to the control board behind it, clean it with a degreaser (like Fantastic or 409), dry it, and re-insert it, and then try again. (Remember to unplug the microwave oven first before you try that!)

Touchpad and Control Panel If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad and control panel assembly are probably defective.

Touchpad If the microwave buttons don't work the touchpad might be at fault. Generally speaking, if the dishwasher display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.

User Control and Display Board If the microwave buttons don't work the main control board is most likely defective and will need to be replaced.

We have a kenmore ultra wave microwave and the fan has stopped working and now the microwave won't operate. Any suggestions?

see this causes and fix it .God bless you
Exhaust Fan Motor If the exhaust fan does not run the fan motor might be bad. Remove the fan motor from the microwave oven and see if the blades can be turned by hand. They should turn very freely, if they're stiff the fan motor will need to be replaced. The fan motor can also burn out. To test this use an Ohm meter. The motor should have continuity. If it does
Thermostat If the microwave exhaust fan is not working the thermostat might be defective. The thermostat senses the air temperature and turns on the fan as needed, if it's defective it won't turn on the fan. Watch our video on testing thermostats.

Main Control Board If the microwave exhaust fan is not working check the exhaust fan motor and wiring. If they are good the main control board might be defective.

LG LMVM2055SB over the range microwave keys not working

Is it possible someone may have sprayed cleaner directly onto the keypad area?

This causes moisture to get into the keypad and sometimes onto the control board.

This could mean that they control panel frame with keypad (membrane switch) would need to be replaced.

Can you give more details on the cleaning?
