• ** 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.

Microwave stopped working today. No power / no lights except when I open and slam the door, causing 00:00 shows up for a second or two along with a long beep and then dead again. Any thoughts on what may be going on? Door switches seem fine, and just replaced those about 9 months ago.

Added model number

Sounds like the control board but without a model number we're dead in the water. Might be time for a new machine. Microwaves start at about $40 and go up from there.

Model # LFMV1645TF. Above range, so quite a bit more $ than the cheap countertop options, that's why trying to find an easy fix first. Seems like it was another door switch, so I'll put this one to bed for now. Appreciate your time and reply
