Repairs for your LG microwave don’t have to be time consuming or expensive. With the right instructions and tools, you can diagnose and fix most common issues with your LG microwave yourself. This guide will help you find the source of the problem and walk you through the necessary steps to get it fixed.
Before you diagnose any internal issues, it’s important to make sure the external parts of your microwave are not causing the problem. Look for any signs of damage that could be preventing the appliance from properly functioning. Ensure nothing is obstructing the door or blocking air vents and check for any broken handles or buttons. If anything looks out of place, repair or replace it before proceeding.
If the microwave isn’t responding to your commands or won’t turn on at all, it’s likely that the control board needs to be reset. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for 30 seconds to a few minutes. Then, press and hold the “Start” button for 10-15 seconds and plug the microwave back in. The issue should be resolved after this reset.
If resetting the control board doesn’t resolve your issue, the door switch and the magnetic latch assembly may need to be checked. Make sure that both components are working properly by examining their visible structure and wiring for any signs of damage. You may also want to replace the parts if there is any visible wear and tear. After checking these components, your microwave should work normally again.
