One of the door interlock switches are stuck. this is the latch mechanism the the door locks into. This is usually accessed behind the control panel, you may have to remove the outer skin of the microwave first. Be sure to unplug the machine for at least 1/2 hour before doing so and do not touch any exposed wiring connectors and stay well clear of the magnetron and capacitor. Do not operate the microwave with the cover off. At this point you can see the latch mechanism as you open and close the door. There will be several small switches on the interlock assembly and they will all need to be tested electrically (multimeter) to isolate the problem switch

Why does the fan and turn table run when door is opened - ge microwave


I'd be AWFULLY NERVOUS about that - you don't know if the magnetron is also generating microwaves. If it IS, it can give you cataracts and/or blind you.

After closing door micro wave turn table continues to turn and light stays on after you open door and take out food.


The problem is most likely caused by a defective door switch, and should be rectified for safety reasons.

I have a Tappan Model 56-9338-10/04 Microwave. The microwave stays on when you open the door! Can someone help?


  • Don't operate an oven if the door does not close firmly or is bent, warped, or otherwise damaged.
  • Never operate an oven if you have reason to believe it will continue to operate with the door open.
  • As an added safety precaution, don't stand directly against an oven (and don't allow children to do this) for long periods of time while it is operating.

Tappan microwave keeps running


Usually only the fan will continue to run, as the microwave power supplies has redundant circuits to prevent its operation should the door be open. Usually a fan running when the door is open is due to either a worn out door switch, or a misaligned door switch, which if you fix it for them is an hour of screwing around including ordering the switch, plus $15 for the switch itself. However, there can be other parts like relays which could have failed... and at 25 years old, its really questionable how long the power supply or magnetron is going to keep on running. Alas if you have some skill and don't mind spending $20, maybe you can fix it and then can get another few years of use out of it,

If you call in an appliance guy, the service call alone is likely to approach the cost of a low end under cabinet microwave. Granted, if there are wooden trim pieces and such, a low end microwave may require some custom wooden brackets which can get pretty spendy too.

Advantium 120 Keeps running


I've got this problem also.
The interior light on the oven died. We replaced it. Since replacing it the light stays on and the turn table turns.

Looking at the diagram, the "main relay" is what powers both. My guess is that it's stuck in the "on" position. Solution will be replace the relay.

Long term fix may be bigger relay.
