Possible that the relay is stuck or that the processor does not cut off the relay drive or the relay drive is faulty. You need to remove the control panel and reset the board , clean the board , check for faulty relay , drive transistor to the relay or dry joints in the processsor. Also check for moisture or dirt accumulation. Clean and reset.

Why does my microwave keep running/heating until I open the door? what can i do about it?


Sounds like a problem with the control panel. Further diagnostic testing would be required, however, as there can be other causes.

Why does the fan keep running on a kenmore spacemaster 300?


Check those 3 micro switches in the door latch assembly. A bad microswitch can blow the main fuse. This usually ruins the microswitch.

We have just purchased a Kenwood microwave/combination oven and are concerned there may be a problem. When the food has finished cooking and the microwave beeps it seems there is a fan or something still...


In most modern combination microwave ovens, if not all, there is a fan that comes on after use to cool the magnetron and cavity down. This is quite normal but if you still have doubts, contact Kenwood's web site and send them a question.
Hope this halps to put your mind at rest.

MW8119SB cooks when door is closed regardless of settings


Clear the cook cycle when you remove the food. Some microwaves pick up where they left off, so you don't have to keep pressing buttons.

Was cooking in microwave and it totally shut off. Light went out and stopped. After a while "PF" appeared on the panel. What caused this to stop and what do I do to get it back working? My...


If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

First of all, be sure the internal cooling fan is running. That's critical to protect the magnetron by keeping it cool.

You can test this by running the microwave with a cup of water inside. First, cook for about 2 minutes on the lowest power setting and see if it makes it to the end. Then cook on high for 2 minutes and see if it makes it to the end.

If the defrost test works, but the full power test does not, then the magnetron is overheating.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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