Question Weird Microwave Problem
Model Number: fm156ema   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com

Hey, thanks for considering my question, here it is:

My microwave is getting power, the digital display is lit up and show current time. When I enter a cooking time, it counts down as if it were running, but there is no sound whatsoever and it does not heat. I am confused about this and thing perhaps the magnetron is spent. IS this the case, do I need a new microwave? BTW, I will never by a Frigidaire product again. We installed a Frigidaire oven, microwave and dishwasher when we moved in to our home 3 years ago and the microwave and dishwasher are both recently dysfunctional. Please give me some insight here, thanks!

This is very common and pretty simple to fix.

The bottom door switch or its mount is bad.

See this help file.

Then take a look at a similar model's service manual here.

And you can see a video at our site that shows you how to remove your oven's control panel is less than 5 minutes.
