Why Is Microwave Oven Touch Control Panel Not Working?

There can be several reasons why the control panel of a microwave oven is not working. First ensure that the microwave is plugged into a grounded 3-prong outlet. Additionally make sure that the clock is set correctly. Also occasionally improper programming or a program sequence such as a scheduled delayed start may be the reason a touch control panel is not responding. When this happens, try unplugging the microwave or turning off circuit breaker for 30 seconds, then attempt reprogramming the microwave. A blown fuse or tripped breaker may also be the reason that a touch control panel is not working.
