If it jumps or moves just a little when you open the door, that is normal. It it actually runs, then you have a problem. Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP button) is the primary cause of door switch failure. You can visit my Web site at _ or e-mail at _ if you'd like more in information on diagnosing and repairing this problem.

SOURCE: Turntable does not work

If the rest of the oven works fine, then this indicates that you might have a problem with the motor that turns the turntable.

If you try to turn the turntable manually (gently), does it turn freely or is there resistance? If it turns freely, the mechanical mechanism between the turntable and motor may be broken and the motor may be ok.

The oven's microprocessor also controlls the motor. There could be a problem there.

You'll need to have it looked at by a service center. Although its not that difficult to determine which of the reasons I mentioned above is the cause, it can be however, dangerous to operate a microwave oven with the cover off and with high voltage circuits exposed.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Over the range Goldstar microwave not working????

(If you need more help than this, please reply back with your model number)

It's probably a bad door switch or door switch mount.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

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.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

If you only need a switch, you can order one from us for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Turntable does not spin, no heat


HV fuse has failed. Possibly caused by door switches or Diode Pack failure. Do not attempt a repair unless you are competent to do so. Extremely hazardous voltages inside!

Turntable wont stop turning, even when not in use


The turntable is a seperate intenty from the microwave itself, I would presume that the switch that turns off the turntable when the door is opened needs replacement.

Dacor dcm24s.light, fan, and control panel work but turntable and heat do not


Most likely the bottom door switch. Dacor units are built by Sharp and that switch is a very common problem. You'd either need to check the switch with an ohm meter or remove the cover of the switch to see if it's burned inside.

I have a Whirlpool AMW545 built in microwave oven. The turntable continuosly runs with the door shut when the microwave is not in use. The turntable will stop rotating if the door is opened.


the controller for the turntable is shorted out or welded its contact if its a relay. the door has safety switches that turns off the electrical connection to the turntable and magnetron once you open the door. you can trace the switch that runs the turntable. start from the power supply, goes to the door switch then to the controller before it goes to the turntable motor. i'm sure it has an electrical diagram at the inner wall of the cover.
i hope i was able to help.

Smasung MW7490w door/turntable problem


It's probably a defective door switch, probably the upper one, or the mount which holds the switch is broken. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP button) is the primary cause of door switch failure. There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door hooks latch 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. Usually it's not a loose screw, but instead a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position.
