Frig.Model FMV157GS: When door is closed it is heating without lite on or turntable rotating. If time is entered with the door open it then heats as normal when the door is closed. Thanks, Jim

Good Morning Jim Cole, thank you for your post!

From what you are describing it sounds like it could be an issue within your control panel or door switch. I would recommend having a technician out to properly diagnose your Frigidaire microwave to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Hot microwave door handle

I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

If you take off the cover panel, you can see the microswitch and its adjustment slot on the control panel side. This can be adjusted to operate correctly.

Check to make sure one of the plastic hooks on the door was not broken off. If both door hook latches are functional then the most likely cause of your problem is one of the latch switches located behind the control panel. These switches will fail if the oven user opens the door frequently BEFORE the cook cycle ends. Always push STOP/RESET before opening any microwave oven door.

I'm not sure about some of those appliances but maybe able to help you. They sell stainless panels as well as the Softmetal adhesive stainless that's been on HGTV's "I Want that," "Design on a Dime," and "Real Estate Intervention." And I think some others.
