Hey i will help you. Once you had the power outage it has damaged the control board on the microwave. This control board is expensive. If you have tried resetting the power again and the display just lights up and will not let you set the clock or anything you will need to replace the control board. The part number for the control board is #8172054 and retails for around 195 dollars. You can probably replace the whole microwave for what this part alone cost. If you want to order the part you can order it from Hope this helps and please remember to click accept. Thanks David
