MICROWAVE SHOWS ALL 88:88'S

My power went out yesterday while at work. Now all the will display is 88:88. I have tried to reset the breaker and unplug the unit. The light and fan are working for the range below and the light works when I open the door to the microwave but I cannot get the clock to reset or get the power to come on to cook anything.

Thanks

Joe

Since you tried a reset and the keys won't respond, you probably have a problem on your control board or the keypad has failed.

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

If you have a keypad and you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us replace the keypad for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

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.

Unit went dead. No fan, display, light, oven. Is there an internal fuse or reset?


There is an internal fuse. Be careful high voltages present even if the microwave is unpluged.

Good luck

You haven't said how long you cut power for when you flipped the breaker. These things sometimes have heavy capacitors in them taht will take a time to discharge and allow everything to reset. Before you call a service tech, unplug the unit (or flip the breaker, whatever) and leave the unit disconnected for half an hour. This may just be all you need to do.

Be sure to keep this oven unplugged or the door open until it is fixed. If it runs by itself, this is a fire hazard.

First listen carefully for a buzzing sound behind the control panel when the door is shut.

If it's present, chances are you have a failing capacitor on the control panel assembly, which can be repaired for $39.95 in most cases. Details are here.

If that or a louder buzzing is only present when you have the door closed, then the oven is cooking when it's not supposed to, but the cooling fan is not on, and it is overheating and tripping the breaker.

That would be due to a shorted cook relay on the control board. That can also be repaired with our $39.95 service.

The odd characters on the display concern me separately. This could mean you have a noisy or otherwise failing magnetron.

If the display is fine when you're cooking properly with it, then the magnetron is probably okay.

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.

Did you have a power failure? Could be an overheat situation. Try unplugging the unit, wait 30 seconds and plug it in again. This resets the unit as long as there isn't a breaker or fuse blown. If it is a power issue, the display should start flashing. Did you get any error codes?

My electric power supply went off yesterday now i can't get the microwave off demo mode


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.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.

Hi cschnur,
     It seems that you might need to replace circuit board.
All the above mentioned conditions refers to a faulty circuit board. You might have blown few Ic's.
Take a voltmeter, check the continuity. If you are aware of the Ic's, replace them.
Unless, look for a tech, a used board ( On http;//www.ebay.com ) or purchase a new one.

Thanks for using Fixya.
Do rate the solution as "Fixya" if 100% satisfied.

Spacesaver powers off 2 seconds after resetting clock and time...


The clue is that you have to reset the clock. You are losing power somehow. the Main Board thinks it is being unplugged and it resets the clock and you have to start all over. The fact that after so many times it will finally work tells me that whatever bad connection you have is finally getting hot enough to expand and make a good enough connection to keep working. Intermittant connections are the worse to find. A lot of trial and error to find the problem. can be bad fuse and fuse holder ( in the unit), bad outlet, loose wire at circuit breaker, loose wire at outlet. Even a loose breaker where it snaps onto the buss bar in the Breaker Box. Etc, it an really drive you nuts trying to find it. Try the unit in a totally different area making sure it is on a compleately different circuit breaker and see what it does, if the problem follows the unit, the problems is in the unit. If not, electrical problems, outlet, breaker, panel,

Samsung MU3250W Shut down


It could have been steam or humidity.

If this is an over the range model, be sure you always use the hood vent exhaust fan when you're cooking on the stove top.

Whether it's a counter top or over the range top, always be aware that the cooling fan is running when it's cooking.

When in doubt feel for air flow through the vents.

Good luck.
