Question about Goldstar MV-1155 Microwave Oven
Does the Goldstar Model MV1501W microwave oven have an internal fuse that would keep the heating function and turntable from working, yet have the light, fan and display still work?
Micro switch is bad .remove top vent cover 4 screws,after removing plastic vent panel you will see 1 screw above display time window,remove this screw and lift up the complete button time control panel slightly and pull towards you to remove.there are 2 connections on this panel 1 is a 12 pin connector and a 2 pin power connection remove both put control panel aside.now there are 3 micro switches where the door pins close into the oven lock,remove 2 screws that hold the micro switch housing,on the bottom of housing you will see a small clip gently pull to the right and push back to remove .there are 2 switches on bottom of it and 1 on top. the 1 on top is normally open and closes when door is shut but like mine it stayed open and resulted in (light s display but no turntable)soon as i replaced upper microswitch it runs perfect.i hope this helps .MODEL MV1501W GOLDSTAR

No, it has a fuse inside, but if it were blown, the oven would be totally dead.
The problem you have is either a bad secondary interlock (probably the top door switch) or a problem with its mount.
Door switch or mount trouble is usually 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.

My goldstar microwave model mv1501w had the same issue with running but not heating. I had a repair man come over, and fixed some wiring in the panel. the microwave then started making a vibration noise everytime it ran. today, to my complete horror, the microwave caught on fire and flames were shooting from the vent in the front. words of advise, throw out this piece of **** before it burns down your house...

Microwave isn't coming on. Unplugged the microwave and then plugged it back in. It came on for just a moment, then it went off again.

& Welcome to FixYa
the fuse is good then the problem is with the high voltage capacitor or the
circuit board itself going bad and needs replacement. If it is a circuit board
then it will cost you around same as new one. Please get back to me if you have
any other questions.
