    I cannot turn the microwave off unless I unplug. The cooking stops according to the timer but the light stays on and the turntable keeps turning indefinitely.

    Mine doesn't even cook. It just spins, fan on, and I can't press other buttons. I tried unplugging and replugging but that doesn't help either. Reset button doesn't work either. DMW745SS Model.

Sharp Carousel R530BK microwave won't cook unless light pressure is kept on the door button.


There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

Microwave keeps running with door open


I'd say the door interlock switch has failed, and supplies a connection when it should not. Microwave ovens can be dangerous to anyone poking around inside, even when unplugged, so get a quote from a service tech. You might find that parts+labour is almost as much as a new one.

Microwave radiation being released through an open door is also a hazard, as it is known to cause eye cataracts, so don't get near if the oven does this.

Sharp combo microwave: Turntable wont stop unless I leave the door ajar. Light stays on too while turntable is going. Everything else works fine - it just doesn't know when to shut up! :)


It's a door switch that's bad. Probably the secondary interlock switch. You need an ohm meter to verify switch not 'making' electrically. Usually the only thing that causes this switch to fail is from opening the door when the microwave is cooking, secondly, by cooking at very extended lengths of time.

I have a GE Spacesmaker model #JVM1440BH04 that came on by itself and can't be shut off unless the door is opened. It does not seem to be cooking since nothing heats up unless the cook start buttons are...


The problem is in one of the door switches, "it is defective" this is a highly dangerous situation and should be checked immediately, the microwave oven should unplugged until a appliance repairman looks at it.

My ge microwave just runs. It will not stop unless I unplug it.


First you should determine whether it's cooking when it should not be, in this case anytime it is plugged in and the door is closed or open.

Do that by putting a cup of water in a microwave-safe container into the unplugged microwave, shutting the door, then plugging it for about a minute.

Then unplug the oven and check to see if the water is warmer.

If so, you have a shorted secondary relay on your microwave''s control circuit board, and we regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 with a one-year guarantee.

Do that test again by putting the water in, leaving the door open, and plugging the oven in for about 30 seconds or so. If you get any arcing or buzzing or flashing, unplug it.

If it is not cooking, then you need to test further.

If it just seems to be "running" with the door shut, but it is not cooking (as shown in the above tests) then note whether the oven lamp, internal cooling fan and turntable are running when the door is shut, but when you open the door, the turntable and colling fan go off.

This should mean you have a shorted main relay on the board. We can fix that, too.

Differing symptoms would indicate a bad door switch or door switch mount.

Our info file on door switches is here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Our Microwave keeps running unless we give it a whack!


Hi firstly to see if it is producing energy, buy some 5mm light emitting diodes from an electronics store. cut off the leads close to the plastic body.
place in microwave and put on cook for max 10 secs, if the led's light up you have microwave energy, shut off the oven as soon as they glow otherwise you end up with a mess.
If you have energy then your problem is most probably the door interlock micro switches which after time do not operate properly. let me know the results and we can go further.
