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

My microwave starts running when you open the door how can i fix that


It is supposed to. It is designed that way. It put the light on and the extractor fan to remove steam and cooking smells. Some have a timer that continues to run for a few minutes after cooking. It is not emitting the cooking radiation when the door is open. The are at least three safety devices to stop that.

We own a Panasonic 1100 watt Inverter microwave. It has worked fine until recently - it has now started to "turn on" whenever the door is opened. Now, when you open the door the light...


HI:
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.

Microwave seems to run, but won't heat.


We have a similar problem! It sounds like a problem with the microswitch inside the unit that the door is suppose to engage when closed. If not engaged properly, it will not cook. We had the switch replaced last March but it has started acting up again. We can press in on the door and/or lift it slightly and it will cook. Try putting time on the counter and hit start. It the word "cook" appears then try moving the door slightly and see if the turntable starts turning. If not, then you may have a more serious problem. Good luck!

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.
