I have the above product in my '05 motorhome & it is an over the counter convection microwave oven. It shuts off after 59 seconds & I have to hit the start again for remaining time or another 59 seconds. I've had the motorhome since new & the only problem with the oven.
Thank you, Gary R Whaler

Re: Please help with the problem
This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.
The damper is a door located on the right side of the innards. The damper closes and opens depending on cooking mode.

looks like the timer brain has packed up on you,,
how old is it,, it may be cheeper to just replace the microwave as there not very pricy now,,there is very little inside them that you could fix your self, however,, putting your hand inside the back could kill you? so dont try it, play safe buy a new microwave insted
This sounds like either a thermistor or a damper switch/motor problem.
Amana's technical support line is 866-426-2621. This is the commercial side but they should be able to get you in touch with the domestic side.
That would be a problem in the damper aseembly, either a bad switch or motor, or the damper door is jammed or blocked.
Consult the attached diagram for general reference.
The damper switch is the same as the primary interlock (door) switch.

Chances are you have a bad damper switch or wiring.

It might also be a problem with the humidity sensor or a problem with the control panel, such as corrupted code or bad connections.
