If you have a smoker in the house, the display may be coated with tar from the smoke. Spray some window cleaner on a soft cloth or paper towel, and gently wipe off the display face (do not scrub; it scratches easily).

The power supply capacitor on the controller board may be going bad. Unplug the oven, remove the top/side cover, and inspect the electrolytic capacitors. The tops should be flat; if any are domed or obviously leaking, they should be replaced (note: sometimes the top of the capacitor has a thin plastic disc covering it; doming of the disc is normal). See the photo below to identify good and bad electrolytic capacitors. This photo is from a TV or computer power supply and your controller will not look this. You're looking for components like bad ones marked in the photo or the good ones next to it. If you see a bad capacitor, post a comment with the capacitance (e. g., 2200 uF) and voltage rating, and I'll recommend a part number that I know will be a good replacement. The cost is usually under $2 plus shipping from whatever supplier you choose.

It is possible that the display itself is going bad, but this is not very common.

Possibly is overheating. check all of your vents to make sure that they are not blocked. I have seen some that the vent holes in back were completely covered with lint, because that is where the microwaves pulled the air into the unit to cool the magnetron. If your vents are blocked it cannot pull that air and it will cause a thermostat mounted on the magnetron to over heat and kick it off line. There is also a chance that the thermostat mentioned above is going bad as well. Hope this helps!

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire microwave, model# FMV156DC, and the door not latching which leaves the light on inside the appliance. I also see that it looks like a spring fell off the door hook. For safety reasons, when dealing with microwaves, I don't suggest trying to repair them yourselves. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to better assist in making sure your microwave is repaired correctly and there are no safety issues. Hope this is helpful.
