You can leave the door ajar for a change - it also eliminates the odor inside the microwave

Fan & Light stays on???


On a few new model microwave ovens, this is a "feature"! It's purpose is to cool the microwave parts down, and to remind you that your food is cooked. Once you open the door, the fan will shut off and stay off when you close the door again. But if not, or if you microwave oven didn't use to do this, then you have a bad door switch.

Sharp combo microwave: Turntable wont stop unless I leave the door ajar. Light stays on too while turntable is going. Everything else works fine - it just doesn't know when to shut up! :)


It's a door switch that's bad. Probably the secondary interlock switch. You need an ohm meter to verify switch not 'making' electrically. Usually the only thing that causes this switch to fail is from opening the door when the microwave is cooking, secondly, by cooking at very extended lengths of time.

Frigidaire model cfmv156fmc allows programming, lights work but when hitting go wont turn on yet timer is counting down.


If the inside light comes on when you try to cook, but the turntable and internal cooling fan do NOT, then that's a bad bottom door switch or that switch's mount.

See this helpful text file.

If the inside light, turntable, and internal cooling fan DO all come on when you try to cook, but it does not cook, then you have a bad relay or connection on the control circuit board, which we can repair for $39.95. Details here.

We have the service manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

Does Not Shut-Off Completely


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or 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.

If you 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: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Microwave seems to turn on when door latch is opened


What's happening is you are activating one door switch a little before the other, and that is causing your light, fan, and turntable to come on. The plastic parts are not perfectly rigid, so they flex a little when you press the button, and that causes the lag to be more apparent. Even if you press the door open faster and look really close, you may notice the light, fan, and turntable coming on for a split second. That's perfectly normal. The relay on the control board must also be turned on before it will actually be cooking.

Microwave works with door open


If the top is open, the upper door switch should be open and the high voltage section should not be energized. That's the way it's *supposed* to work. But that buzzing is worrysome! Does the turntable turn during this condition? Does the inside light come on? How about the fan? If not, then I would doubt that it's cooking. If so, some models will do this. It's not uncommon to notice that the fan and light will try to come on for a split second when you shut the door. This would not indicate a problem. It has to do with the timing of the door switches and a replay on the board. If it's still under full warranty, it wouldn't hurt to call a GE-authorized servicer.
