Question about Danby DMW1153 Microwave Oven
We have a Danby counter top microwave. The problem is this:
If you open the microwave door, and then close it, the microwave starts running - i.e. the light is on, the fan is going and the turntable is turning. If you give the microwave a whack on top (or just shut the door with a more sudden "snap") it will stop, and then you can set the time and hit "start". It's been doing this for a long time, and it seems to be getting harder to make it stop! We don't know if it's actually microwaving when it does this, or if it's just the light, turntable and fan that are running. Wierd, eh?
Hi firstly to see if it is producing energy, buy some 5mm light emitting diodes from an electronics store. cut off the leads close to the plastic body.
place in microwave and put on cook for max 10 secs, if the led's light up you have microwave energy, shut off the oven as soon as they glow otherwise you end up with a mess.
If you have energy then your problem is most probably the door interlock micro switches which after time do not operate properly. let me know the results and we can go further.
