Yes the internal fuse will have blown. I would also think the door latch switches and monitor switch will also need re adjustment

Hi, I believe you have done your microwave in. That was not a good thing to do. In all hand books it say, do not put a raw egg in it's shell in the microwave or it will explode. You will have to replace the wave gun (magnetron). Depending how much damage you did there maybe more to replace.

You have a faulty door switch, the unit is not supposed to come on when the door is opened only the light.This unit may require servicing as the control board may also be at fault.

My fan kicked on by itself and won't shut off


The over the range microwave hood has a heat sensor in it. If it senses hot temperatures from cooking below it will turn the fan on. The fan will turn off once it cools down, this is to protect the microwave controls from damage.

Egg cookers

I found the instructions
Sprinkle a few grains of salt on bottom of egg cooker. (Salt attracts microwaves and is necessary to help cook bottom of egg)

Break egg into egg cooker.
One egg in micro at a time.

Will fork piece yolk and white to bottom of cooker, three times. _ This is very important.

Line up notches on egg cooker lid and cup then twist until locked

Micro on High for 30 seconds

Let stand 10 seconds
If bottom of egg is not cooked turn egg over with a spoon and microwave on high for another 10 to 20 second or until cooked.

Microwave works for 30 seconds and then turns off

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
