SOURCE: remove a door on a microwave

I wouldn't remove the door myself if I were you. If you just got the microwave, it should be under a return/replace policy, or a warranty. I would recommend returning the microwave and getting a sturdier one, as you don't know if the problem exists for all microwaves in that series, and most stores don't allow the replacement to be return/replaced.

SOURCE: Microwave seems to run, but won't heat.

We have a similar problem! It sounds like a problem with the microswitch inside the unit that the door is suppose to engage when closed. If not engaged properly, it will not cook. We had the switch replaced last March but it has started acting up again. We can press in on the door and/or lift it slightly and it will cook. Try putting time on the counter and hit start. It the word "cook" appears then try moving the door slightly and see if the turntable starts turning. If not, then you may have a more serious problem. Good luck!

SOURCE: Frigidaire FMCB115GC Microwave Oven wont stop

The only parts that are available for this unit by model number are the tray inside and the feet on the outside.

If you were adventurous and found a way to take it apart and remove the door switches you might be able to match them up at an appliance parts dealer but short of that it sounds like a lost cause.

I know that is not what you want to hear, and I as well do not like being the bearer of bad news.....

Oven is off door closed and turntable is still turning in reverse


Most likely, one of the door switches has become non-functional.
Its usually the upper one. Test it with an ohm meter to make sure it makes contact in both positions.

Why would the microwave keep running if we just close the door and no time is set?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire microwave continues to run, when you close the door and no time is set. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power. You might need to set your clock before doing anything else. Put a cup of water inside your appliance and try to heat it up. If you are still noticing your microwave continuing to run, even after no time is set, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

When I open microwave oven door . close the door again light comes on an plate spins an wont stop unless I unplug it


Inside the door latch, is a safety feature, that prevents the microwave from operating unless the door is closed. This feature can easily become faulty, or even come with the fault already causing the microwave to constantly operate whenever the door is closed.

Microwaves can be very dangerous in regard to holding HEAPS of voltage within the unit. I recommend getting yourself a new microwave, as attempting repairs on any of the modern units can, more often than not, be far more costly then the price of a new one.

Hope this helps.

Microwave won't stop running


there's a ghost in your microwave, call ghost buster. Seriously, the problem is the control panel. (((((the microwave oven can store thousands of volts of electricity in its high voltage capacitor, even after the microwave oven has been unplugged. That's more than 30 wall outlets combined.
Replacing electronic parts in a microwave oven can be extremely dangerous.))))))) tank you

I have exactly the same problem. Everything works perfectly even fan, except microwave table won't turn. I just found out what's the problem... The door for some reason is sitting too low now, even though it is not obvious at all. It looks leveled with everything else, but it's not. Set your Microwave to let's say 30 seconds and turn it on. It will not do anything... but you just gently lift the door (while closed of course) few millimeters and your Microwave will start running like new. There is something wrong with those latches on the door, not touching the microswitches inside the Microwave. Doors must be properly closed in order for Microwave to work. This is due to poorly design. I yet have to figure out how to fix that permanently.

My GE Spacemaker (HVM1540) will not turn off. Often when we use it and open the door to get food out, then we reclose the door and it continues to run. Even after hitting Clear/Off it continues to run...


Ok I have the same model and mine was doing the same thing. Apparently this model has a reputation of problems with the control board. I played with mine for hours and here's what finally worked: unplug the unit (or shut off the breaker--whichever's easier for you), take a dry cloth and wipe the door latches and control board clean of any residue. Then with the door still open, gently jiggle the control board by firmly grasping with your hand. Power up your unit again. This worked for me. The control board is really fussy and should be clean and free of any dust or residue. I notice this happens again when it gets dirty so I repeat the process and it's been working.....so far!!!

Hello :

That problem could happen because of a bad door switch .
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly .

That could happen because of slamming the door and not closing it gently .

WARNING : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

good luck .

please rate !
