Question and Answers

Q:

Light switch PLMV168CC1 Frigidaire Microwave/hood combo

A:

Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your questions about your Microwave. I am so sorry to hear that the microwave has stopped working. I know what a time saver the microwave can be and how inconvenient it is when it isn't working.                                                          I can appreciate wanting to diagnose and repair the microwave yourself, however I strongly recommend against it. We do not give repair information on microwave ovens because they are inherently dangerous to service. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. You need special equipment to work on a microwave starting with an anti-static wrist strap grounded to the microwave to even test components in it. Even minor door repairs and adjustments can cause microwave leakage, and a microwave shielding leakage test MUST be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service. For these safety reasons I strongly recommend having this repair completed by a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online at www.SearsHomeServices.com or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME(1-800-469-4663). Here at SearsPartsDirect.com we love to help you with your repairs, but our expert advice is that microwaves are just too dangerous for a do-it-yourself project.  Thank you for your understanding in this matter and I hope we can help you with any other questions and repairs in the future. Thank you for choosing Sears.

Q:

over stove microwave. PLMV168CC1 Frigidaire Microwave/hood combo

A:

I am sorry you are experiencing difficulties with your Microwave. Microwaves contain high voltage internal components that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. Door repairs and adjustments, even minor ones, can cause microwave leakage and a microwave shielding leakage test must be performed using a survey meter after any microwave service. I strongly suggest that you have this repair handled only by a qualified service technician. I have provided a link To Sears Home Services if you decide to schedule service. If you think it may be cost effective to just replace the unit, I have also provided a link to the Microwave section of Sears.com to price out what a replacement would cost.

Thank you for submitting your question. Julio has provided you with the correct information regarding microwave repair. Microwaves are a safety hazard and we do not recommend them as do it yourself repairs. Even for something as simple as changing the door handle. They pack a lot of power and a shielding leakage test must be performed after every repair. It's for these reasons that Manage My Life is unable to assist customers in microwave repairs or troubleshooting. I recommend scheduling for service. I apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Why does my microwave turn on for about 2 seconds then shut off?

A:

It sounds like a relay or transformer on the control board is failing. This type of symptom will require accessing the control & making voltage checks. We do not recommend the customer removing the cover off of their microwave due to safety reasons.

On something like this I recommend calling for service.
