Microwave oven stays on continuously and won't heat food.

GE Profile Spacemaker II microwave oven stays on continuously if front door is closed, won't shut off, won't heat food. Have to unplug it and plug it in again, then it operates normally. Two days later, it did the same thing.

Spacemakers have had problems with there magnatron, part is around 170.00. Depending on the year it is covered under a warranty however the labor is not. I have replaced 3 spacesavers for people already due to this issue. Unit runs but will not heat.

My spacemaker just stopped heating food. What do


This is a microwave, correct?

I suspect the door lock interface switch(es) are burned out. Unplug it, be mindful of the 25,000 volts in the silver thing. Check the micro switches (look where the door closes on the top right side, probably) two positions, normally open or normally closed. check them for proper operation.

Micro switches are the most common of microwave failures because most of us open the door while the machine is running causing arc at the switch and burning up the little contacts.
