My Frigidaire Galaxy microwave came on by itself - very hot and fan running. I could not shut it off It was. Purchased in January, 2017.

My 2021 Frigidaire also turned on by itself 2 days ago. It also got hot and would not turn off except at the breaker. After 10 minutes I turned breaker on and the microwave was still on. Turned breaker on the next morning and all good. We are afraid to leave house unless we turn breaker off. Any suggestions? Do I need a new microwave?

Frigidaire Gallery Microwave. When I plug it in, it powers on and does not come off.

I would check the door switches.

My Frigidaire gallery convection microwave keeps blowing its fuses

fuses inside oven, sure. (i had to guess) all UWAVE do that when the 3 or 4 door switches CONTRADICT. this is so it does no cook a persons eyeballs.(no really ) what we do is replace them all as a set, 4x5=$20 set. I am on my 3rd set here, ( 18 year span) so i even bought a new whole spare fuse panel (behind the controller) with new switch set pre loaded.all -in- one fix. then when it fails i can replace it all in 30min flat. mine is built in fancy uwave and do not want top put in any alien Uwave here and now wood cabinets must be modified. see? good luck,

Frigidaire FFMV164LS 1.6 Cu. Ft. Over-The-Range Microwave. Hello, Can you turn off the turntable on Frigidaire FFMV164LSA? The manual doesn't specify.

Question edited for clarity. No you can't. The turntable needs to rotate the food or the microwave energy will burn holes in your food. The rotation spreads the heat evenly throughout the food. You can test it by removing the turntable and put a plate on the base with a pound of butter on it. Microwave on full power for a minute. Notice the holes?

Frigidaire pleb27m9ecd built in oven/microwave. The oven works fine. The plug on the oven that microwave plugs into is not working.

It sounds like you may have an issue with the plug that connects the microwave portion of your Frigidaire PLEB27M9ECD built-in oven/microwave to the electrical supply. Here are a few things you can try:
  1. Check the power supply: Make sure that the oven/microwave is properly plugged into a working outlet and that the circuit breaker is not tripped.
  2. Inspect the plug: Look for any visible damage on the plug and make sure that the connections are secure.
  3. Check the wiring: Make sure that the wiring inside the oven/microwave is not damaged or loose.
  4. Test the outlet: Using a multimeter, test the outlet to see if it's providing power.
  5. Test the microwave: If you have access to a known good microwave, you can test the plug by plugging it into the known good microwave and see if it works.
If none of these solutions work, it's likely that there is an issue with the electronic control board or the plug itself, which will require professional repair. It's best to contact the manufacturer or a professional technician for repair. They will be able to diagnose the issue more accurately and repair it.

My Frigidaire Microwave GLMV168 is giving me a F3 Code

F3 means the key pad is faulty. Probably replaceable if you can find a service agent in your area/town/city/country.

Frigidaire Gallery microwave. The internal light stays on and internal fan stays on when the door is closed.

Try cutting the power to it for 15 minutes to effect a power reset to the mainboard. It is still does it, you need a service call or a new one. It is a known issue. https://www.google.com/search?q=Frigidaire+Gallery+microwave.+The+internal+light+and+internal+fan+stays+on ..

My Frigidaire over the range microwave keeps blowing the fuse when I try to start it?

I had the same problem with this POS microwave. Bought it September 2019 and the plastic at top is brittle and breaking plus the door latch springs are WAY too stiff for this application. I'm 6'4" and it is hard for me to open and close. The spring tension causes the latches to slam down on the thin edge of the plastic catch causing divot wear. The INCESSANT beeping when food is done is worse than nails on a chalkboard plus there are Way too many levels and button presses to simply soften butter or cream cheese! What a TOTAL mess that I Absolutely regret buying! As for this issue with the blown fuses (on a 20 AMP circuit with nothing else on it); I read about replacing the switches so that is where I started but it didn't work. I noticed the wear in the latch catch so I ordered a replacement and that fixed the problem. I also found a video showing how to remove the door and change the latch. I did not need a new latch, but I did want to replace the spring. I have a box of springs at home and found one that was slightly shorter but the same diameter. It had about half the pull strength and now the door opens and closes reasonably! I hope this helps

As soon as you push the start button it trips the breaker

Either high voltage capacitor or diode pack will cause instant stopping. A few seconds and it is generally the magnetron.

My frigidaire over the range microwave keeps blowing the fuse after pressing start. I need help determining where the problem is and how to fix it.

Microwave Ovens contain dangerous voltages that ARE lethal! Could be magnatron , diode pack, capacitor, contaminated turntable motor or even a faulty door switch.

I can't find the fuse type for Frigidaire microwave FMV156DC in the manual. Anyone know the specs of the fuse I need?

The fuse is on the main control board and is not something that is routinely replaced. Are you sure you are not looking at the thermal cut off? Parts for Frigidaire CFMV156DCD: Oven,cabinet Parts - AppliancePartsPros.com
