make this test and fix it. God bless you

  1. Check the power diodeThis electronic component is responsible for transmitting current in one direction. If the diode becomes defective it will cause your microwave to not heat. Test the diode and replace it if necessary.
  2. High voltage capacitorResponsible for storing electricity, this part is a key component in any microwave. Remove, discharge, and test the capacitor to determine if it requires replacement.
  3. Damaged magnetronResponsible for generating waves and producing heat. When your microwave is no longer heating properly, replacement will be required.
  4. Thermal CutoffsExamine the thermal cutoffs on both the magnetron and the oven itself. Take off one of the leads and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If you get a result other than zero, replace the thermal cutoffs.

There can be short in the ribbon connector that connects the control panel to the rest due to some oily deposits. You can try to open it up, remove the ribbon, clean it and put back. It may take a few attempts to align correctly.
I am assuming your model is similar to mine.

If you can open up, try to clean the ribbon connector.
My oven was sending "1" all the time, filled the memory and caused permanent beeping! I wanted to cut off the "1" connection but after opening I found that the panel was diffuclt to disassemble. I just cleaned the ribbon connector and put it pack. It needed a few attempts to get it to work all the buttons properly. But then it has been working for more than year without problem!

use the logically, clearly, fix it .God bless you
a stuck key or non-responsive key, most of the time you will have to replace the keypad for this microwave oven repair. If your keypad is connected to your control board by a flat ribbon wire, try disconnecting it and clean the silver contacts with an ordinary pencil eraser. After cleaning, plug it back in and try it. If it doesn't fix it, replace the keypad unit. Some units actually have keypad tests to confirm your diagnosis of a bad key.If your keypad and control is the same unit, replace that unit. Another note, unlike stove/oven keypads and controls, most microwaves do not have error codes or tests to distinguish whether it is truely the keypad or control. Most of the time, it is the keypad that needs replacing, but a small percentage of the time it can be the control. Check the tech sheet if they can point you to the right part.

There is a major short in the keypad control board, this may be a good time to consider a new microwave oven. The parts and service call will easily cost more than a new one.
