Question about Kenmore 62622 Microwave Oven

3 Answers

No power Cleaned the microwave but one of the door switches got stuck in the open position. Removed display/control panel and un-stuck the switch. After it was plugged in, it did not even turn on and there was nothing on the display panel. The manual says it's either unplugged (it's plugged in) or a fuse has blown or the circuit breaker tripped (Circuit breaker did not trip - reset to no avail).

The door switches are designed to prevent the unit from running while the door is open. You probably have a blown fuse, and it's a white or dark grey ceramic fuse of 15A or 20A, available from local big box stores or appliance parts stores. The fuse is usually located on the floor of the chassis behind the control panel, or mounted in the same area as the door switches. Also, I'm really curious how the door switch got stuck while cleaning? That sounds scary...

Runs when door is closed,stops when open!Checked the three door switches;all good.The mw is 5 years old so anyone have suggestions as i would be thanking U in advance


It is possible that a relay on the control board has stuck in the closed position. You can try tapping the relays on the main control board and this sometimes breaks them free. It still may be one of the door switches but I would suspect the control board or possibly a stuck start pad on the touch panel.

Since you posted this under the WMH32517AT category, I'll assume that's your model number. If not, feel free to e-mail me (below).

The function of the door switches is to prevent the oven from running when the door is open.

If the switches fail in a certain way, it can cause the fuse or breaker to blow. That's by design.

Some models have a line fuse and another fuse for the controller low voltage transformer.

There is a technical sheet hidden behind the grille or behind the controls. It's very helpful in locating components and testing, etc.

Your door switch mounts need to be inspected to be sure they're not loose, misaligned, or damaged. If so, they'll need to be realigned or replaced as needed.

The hook-like "latch heads" protruding from the door must be under spring tension and must move up and down freely in order to activate the door switches.

It sounds like your door switch is stuck, and you can order a universal type here.

Most door switch problems are caused by slamming the door or opening the door while it's cooking instead of hitting the "Stop" pad first.

At my Web site, I have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range grille and control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

The support page for model WMH32517AT is here. It has the owner's manual, installation instructions, exploded views, and parts lists.

You can order any needed Whirlpool parts from the Pros here, my favorite affiliated supplier.
For more free DIY and other help & advice, feel free to contact me via my site.

Please include FULL model number*, FCC ID number*, + detailed symptom information. ( * on the tag in cooking cavity or around door frame or control frame or on back)

Have a Panasonic Microwave NN-SA616W, when door is closed looks like touch pad works perfect, but when I open the door start to make a clicking sound and the light starts to function intermittently (like...


There are usually three interlock switches in the door mechanism. One is in the power circuit for the magnetron, one is in the relay drive circuit, and the third is a logic input to the controller. Many times the one in the relay drive circuit turns on the oven lamp when you open the door at the same time it disconnects the magnetron relay. If the lamp relay is stuttering irregularly, that door switch may be going bad.

Another possibility (if this happens only when you open the door while the oven is running) is that the magnetron power door switch is stuck in the on position. This is not a safe condition. Replace that door switch ASAP, and get in the habit of turning off the oven before opening the door.

Ge profile microwave oven runs when door is open


Good way to cook yourself! It has to be a stuck door interlock switch--the case needs to be removed to get at the switch. It could be either the mechanism that operates the switch or the switch itself is bad. The switch normally makes a click when the button is pressed. Unplug the unit when the case is removed.

Microwave will not turn off


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

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. Other times, 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.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

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:.

You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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 and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

GE Spacemaker JVM1533BD Issues


You are describing a typical Door Switch mis-alignment, or failure. Some door switches "Click" other do not.
#1. Does the two finger-like latches on the Door have a spring effect? They should have in order to set the Door Switches when door is closed.
#2. ALWAYS UN-PLUG POWER B4 MESSING WITH UNIT!!
#3. In order to get to the Door Switches the Control Panel must be removed, or the unit taken down and the outer Cover removed. Now, this is the point where I tell you if you have never removed a Control Panel before DON'T!! without experienced help. You can damage the Control Panel, Panel Circuit Board, or other adjacent components that would cost more to replace than the unit is worth. Call around and ask for estimates for this repair. Also ask if you bring it in what would the savings be.

Open Microwave Door and Fan comes on


Usually this is a problem with the door switches or a broken door switch mount.

 

Sometimes after a part replacement one will find a couple of wires have been reversed.

 

There should be a mini-manual with wiring diagram inside the oven behind the control panel.

 

If those are all correct, you may have a problem with the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.
