Chances are that it is not actually microwaving, but that can be checked by placing a small cup of water inside.

Overall, though, it's not a good idea to run it if it's not working right.

This problem is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Since the light comes on and the turntable rotates, I would suspect a bad magnetron, a loose connection at the magnetron, a failed high voltage transformer, or shorted high voltage rectifier diode.

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Ifit's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years)but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then yourmanufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you orthe labor charge to do the work.

If you or a friend want to work on it, please see these links first:http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt& http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

Thereshould also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which isvery helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

For Frigidaire models, you can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Or you can find your nearest Frigidaire/Maytag-authorized servicer here.

You can visit Daewoo onlineor call them at 1-800-323-9668 or 1-800-553-4355 to find parts or findyour nearest authorized service center to have them do the work.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or no bright, too. Sometimes this will similarly affect the exhaust fan operation or inside light, too.Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Why doesn't Frigidaire FGMV174KBB microwave turntable turn?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the turntable is not spinning on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV174KBB. There is a possibility that your microwave is in a "Turntable off" mode. To turn the turntable back on, press the "turntable on/off" button.I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Microwave turntable wont turn


Hi - Possibilities of the turntable not spinning are either it is turned off, damaged or the support itself is damaged as well. Confirm that the power supply is not faulty or defective. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
