Greetings Sensei!

I have a LG LMVM2055 microwave that's misbehaving. We input time to cook, press start and nothing happens. Looking at the display, I notice on the display the figures that that should be dark, are now partially lit, some brighter than others. The clock functions OK, and the timer will work, it's just when we press start to try cooking, nothing happens. I asked my bride if she recalled any power problems, beeping, etc. But she said it was like that when she woke up.

I tried pressing cancel, unplugging for a period of time, and still the same thing. I'm guessing something got fried on the motherboard, (2nd one), but was hoping for a secret code/reset fix.

Any ideas? Many thanks in advance!!

To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

How to fix an LG LMVM2055 microwave oven that won't start and has a dim or partially lit display

By Samurai Appliance Repair Man in Samurai Appliance Repair Man's Blog, on 16 March 2012 - 10:57 PM

The display that shows the time, countdown, etc. is an integral part of the control board. To fix this, you have to replace the entire control board.
