Look for “Control Lock” on the oven control console and then reset by typically holding the button(s) for 3 seconds.
Verify the power cord is connected to a grounded, operational outlet. Check the outlet. If you are unaware if it’s working, plug in a household lamp or other small appliance to verify that the outlet is working. Check to see if a household circuit breaker has tripped or if the household fuse has been blown.
Look for the fuse inside the exposed controls of the microwave. The fuse is located in a small receptacle with two wires running to it. Use a flat screwdriver to pry up from the bottom of the fuse. The fuse will pop out.
The average microwave oven lasts about seven years with normal use, and even less with heavy use and poor maintenance.
If the thermal fuse does not have continuity, replace it. The thermal fuse cannot be resetif the fuse has blown, it must be replaced. One of the wires that supply power to the oven element or igniter might be burnt out. These wires commonly burn out near the heat source.
The most common cause for a microwave oven not working at all is a blown main fuse. The microwave main fuse will cut the flow of electricity if too much current passes through it.
Reset power to the product: Power unit down by turning off the circuit breaker(s) for one (1) minute. Power unit up by turning on the circuit breaker(s). Monitor the oven for one (1) minute to ensure the error code does not display again. Verify oven operation.
Consider a replacement if you have a basic model that can cost as little as $60. On the other hand, an expensive model with special features or a mounted microwave might be worth repairing. High-end microwave models can run from $500 to $1,000, so repairing these devices is often cheaper than replacing them.
Press the “Off/Clear’ button to cancel anything on the display, and reset the microwave. This is a soft reset and will simply get you out of any program you have started. Press it when the cooking complete reminder appears on the display, for example, and the “Your Food is Ready” message will disappear.
