Question about Hotpoint REM25SJ Microwave Oven
Greetings, When I turn on the microwave oven it will shut off without completing. The shutoff is generally preceded by flickering in the display panel. Sometimes it will operate to completion, quite bizarre. When I turn off the turntable it still works erradically. I have changed the outlet the unit is plugged in to but that has not made any difference. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Has this unit had the magnetron replaced lately? If so, it may be loose or the RF gasket (mesh screen type washer) may be missing or damaged. If not, the magnetron might be failing. To test this, you can try cooking on the lowest power level (1 or 10%) a few times and see if it fails less often. Otherwise, I would suspect a bad connection or component on the control unit (smart board), which we repair nationwide for only $39.95 postpaid in most cases. We have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk Please repost or write if we can help further.

If the microwave runs for a few seconds and then shuts off, a door switch might have failed intermittently. Check each of the door switches for any signs of overheating, arcing, or burning. Also check each of them for continuity. Replace any of the switches that is visibly damaged or that only has continuity intermittently
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad and
control panel might be defective. There are several other components
that can cause this problem, be sure to check any other components
before replacing this board.
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be
at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the microwave
display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but
some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
