Access the Main Control Board Pull the oven out slightly, about 3-4 inches, to gain access to the two control board mounting screws: two on the right side and two on the left. Open the top oven door and grab the control board on each side. Pull it toward you and then pull up.
A properly working control should have a lit-up display and respond to commands. If the display is not lit, test the hot neutral going to the control for 120 volts. If 120VAC +/- 10% is present at the control, the control should be replaced.
If you press all of the buttons and only some work, this is a good sign the control panel is defective and will need to be replaced as they are difficult to repair. If you are experienced working on appliances like microwaves, replacing the control panel is a relatively easy repair to make.

The start button is the ‘>’ button on the front of the unit.
If an oven won’t turn on there could be an incoming power problem. To determine if the electrical outlet is providing sufficient voltage, use a multimeter to test the incoming power at the wall socket. The thermal fuse trips if the oven overheats. If the thermal fuse has blown, the oven will not turn on.
This part is made up of soft-touch electrical switches, which are two layers of Mylar plastic with conductive coatings on the sides that face each other. When you press a key on your microwave touchpad, the two surfaces come in contact and complete an electrical circuit which sends a signal to the control board.
If the repair cost is low, you will likely be better off paying for the repair even if your oven is older than 20 years. If your oven needs a $1,000 repair and it’s over 15 years old, you’re likely better off replacing the oven if replacement cost is less than $2,000.
