That would be a defective door switch, most likely the bottom one.

(It's either the top or bottom switch (not the middle one) and whichever one has thicker wires, not the one with the thinner wires.)

See my help text file on door switches here.

To order other Goldstar / L.G. parts besides door switches, visit Encompass. You'll probably have to call them at 866-779-5835 to get part numbers.

Since it sounds louder than before, it is probably a bad high voltage diode or magnetron.

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

Sears may send you a magnetron to install yourself since it's under warranty. For that or warranty service, contact Sears at http://www.sears.com.

You can save about $75 by taking it to the shop yourself, as opposed to an in-home service call.

You probably don't want to hear all this, but:
Microwave ovens are generally not a fix it yourself item. You need the proper test equipment and knowlege in order to service them safely.
(if, for example, the bleader resister inside the high voltage capacitor fails, the capacitor can hold a 400+ volt charge long after the unit has been unpluged, which can be hazardous) A guess without being able to work on the unit would be that the magneton tube (6324W1A001A) has failed, which does carry an 8 year part warranty on that part (for your model), but labor is not covered beyong the first year. The unit has to come off the wall, and the outer case removed just to get to the mag tube. Of course you could have a bad capacitor, rectifier, high voltage transformer, or a bad motherboard. I'd recommend calling a local repair shop to see what they would charge for a repair estimate if you brought the unit in.
(by the way, we are unable to respond back to comments on premium questions)

SOURCE: hello, i own a 7year

Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.

If it sounds the same as usual or a little louder, I would suspect the magnetron or high voltage diode has failed.

If it is much quieter than usual I would suspect a bad upper door switch.

The service manual is here.

Also see this file on door switches.

Microwave does not heat. used as timer and has not worked since


If you ran this unit empty on full power as a timer, it burned out the magnetron. You have to have a load in a microwave or else there is nothing for the energy to work on so it backs up and destroys itself. It's like putting a potato in a tail pipe..... only worse....

The scrolling speed for the timed cooking is running incredibly fast - too fast to allow the food to cook. I was looking for a manual for Model #MV-1320B.


The owner's manual can be found here.

It sounds like the oven has been placed in "demo mode".

Dear Sir, I have a Goldstar MV-1320W microwave. Tonight, for no apparent reason a loud blowing noise started. It sounded different than the usual fan and would not respond to anything from the keypad. I...


I'd suspect the relay located on the pcb to be shorted, as in the contacts welded/stuck together.  This isn't available separately from Goldstar, as it comes with the circuit board.  The board will probably be prohibitively expensive.  If you have the know-how, remove the board so as to make working on it easier.  Remove the relay lid and using a points file or emery cloth, clean them up.  My experience with this, is the repair works great.  The relay lid may never fit again, as most of them are "sealed", and not designed for removal.  Of course, a replacement relay with roughly the same specs could replace the defective one.  These are usually 120v spst, normally open.

It doesnt matter how old a system was. components can be failed at any point in time. unplug the unit. carefully disassembly and visually check the diode near magnetron and capacitor, it might be broken.If seems good, check the thermostat continuity,if beeping. changage your magnetron. be careful capacitor store charges that deadly. discharge the capacitor first.
when you change mag. change the diode too.

Could be the relay, an internal fuse. With the power off, open up the key panel and search for a fuse. Also, there are thermo sensors black, diameter of a dime and 3/8 inch thick with two wires. Check the fuse and replace if necessary. The thermo can be jumped out to test. Remove the wires, use a paper clip between them and tape it up. Briefly turn the unit on. Replace if it works now. The thermo is generally clamped to the wall of the oven behind the key panel. Never run without the thermo sensor.
