SOURCE: Microwave won't work

F6 usually means a fault in the controller or keypad. You could try to unplug it for several minutes, then plug it back in. If it still fails, maybe you or a friend can disconnect the power cord, unplug the keypad strip internally, then plug the power cord back in and try it with the keypad still disconnected. If it does not fail again, you have a wet or shorted keypad and can dry it or order one. If it does fail again, the control board is bad. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked 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 (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Sorry I didn't get to answer this before the bogus answer was posted. I've been tied up and away from the PC.

SOURCE: Sharp microwave runs when door closed

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or sometimes a problem on the control panel.

I would suspect the door switch mount has a broken tab allowing the switch to swing down when the door is closed, not allowing it to really be activated.

Also, even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

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.

When door open the microwave should not work at all, if the turntable and light come on with the door open , if they do , then this is an additional problem with door switch and must be fixed.

Regarding humming noise and no heath, Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).

SOURCE: Microwave buzz with door closed and off

You can check the relay and related driving circuit. If there is a short in the relay driving circuit there is chance for this type of problem. or the micro processor may be defective.

Why does turntable rotate with door open?


The door switch could be stuck in the closed/on position. The electronic circuits could be malfunctioning. When the door is open, I sure hope than the microwaves cooking are not "ON". That could result in a very dangerous situation for you.

Why microwave won't stop running unless door is open ?


Is it actually heating or just making noise and acting like it's heating? (put a cup of water inside and close the door.) IF it's actually heating, then you have a shorted relay on the main control board, and you will have to replace the board. IF it's just making noise like it's working, but it's not heating, then the problem is 1 of the door switches is not working right (it's either stuck open or stuck closed).

Frigidaire microwave plmv168cc1 makes humming noise when door closed


Chances are that the secondary (cook) relay on the control circuit board is shorted, meaning that the oven is actually cooking any time the door is closed.

You can test that by putting in a cup of water, shutting the door, and letting it go for about 30 seconds, then checking the water temperature.

This is dangerous, and can lead to a fire, so please unplug the oven until it is repaired.

The relay can be replaced for far less than the cost of a new control circuit board.

Microwave, kenmore 721.89822, will run when powered, but will not cook, no microwaves


HELLO.

Follow some straightforward troubleshooting steps to make your microwave work like new again.

1 Make sure the door is closed. If the door is not closed tight, the microwave will not function.Sometimes food will get stuck in the door and prevent the latch from working. Use the paper towel to get the food out, then close the door carefully and listen for the latch to click.

2 Check the power sources. First, make sure the microwave is plugged in; the plug may have shifted or slipped partway out of the socket. If it is plugged in and still does not work, voltage test the outlet the microwave is plugged into. If you are not getting a reading, the breaker is probably blown. Reset the breaker for that outlet in your home's circuit breaker box.

3 Reset the microwave breaker. Take the back cover of the microwave off with a screwdriver. Inside you will find a motor. Most microwave motors have a small red reset button on them. Hit that button. Your microwave should work again if the breaker was the issue.

Thanks.

Clicking noise whem door is closed


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Otherwise, see this video for help.

Oven makes operating noise when doo is closed without starting


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

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.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or 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:.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics. You can call them at 866-779-5835.

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

Yes, the fan blade is hitting something inside.Usually by opening the microwave, you can slide or reposition the plastic fan blade on the shaft.Probably this happened in shipping to the store where you bought it.CAUTON:make sure the unit is unplugged before you attempt this.Other option is return for replacement.
