Microwaves are one of the most important appliances in our kitchens today. They allow us to cook and reheat food quickly and easily. But what happens when your microwave display stops working? A malfunctioning display can have a negative impact on your microwave’s overall usability. In this blog, we’ll look at the possible causes of malfunctioning microwave displays and give you some troubleshooting tips on how to fix them.

  •  Check the power supply and ensure the microwave is properly plugged in and the power outlet is functioning.
  •  Try plugging another appliance into the same outlet to verify that it’s providing power before troubleshooting.

Display Settings

  • Modern microwaves have display settings that can be adjusted for brightness or power-saving purposes
  • Check the user manual for instructions on how to adjust the display settings to make them visible again if they are the issue
  • Microwaves have a control lock feature to prevent accidental button presses.
  • Troubleshooting tips include looking for a button on the control panel that activates or deactivates the control lock and consulting the user manual.

Faulty Fuse

  • Microwaves have a fuse that protects internal components from electrical surges.
  • To check the fuse, unplug the microwave and remove the outer cover, but consult our  professional technician if not comfortable doing it yourself.

Malfunctioning Display Module

  • If the above solutions don’t work, the display module may be malfunctioning due to wear and tear or electrical issues.
  • Contact the microwave manufacturer or a qualified appliance repair technician to diagnose and replace the malfunctioning display module.


To fix a malfunctioning microwave display, check power supply, control settings, and try a reset. If the problem persists, inspect the fuse and consult a professional. Always unplug the microwave before attempting any DIY repairs.
