• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

i am trying to repair a neighbors microwave for them. they are retired and on a fixed income and any help would be appreciated.

the problem is that the lcd screen graphics have grown in size to the point of not being able to accurately use it.

i have looked at the owners manual (which seems to be useless).

is there a way to reset to factory settings maybe?

if not, then any advice on what needs to be done to repair it would be great.


thank you!

Hi,

I have never had to adjust one....what is under the "options" on the display in the main menu?

Tried unplugging the unit ( 30-60 minutes ) to see if it will reset?
