Kenmore Microwave Turns itself on randomly

This 1000 watt microwave will all of a sudden turn itself on at random times. We can go for a few days without it happening, but we now unplug it when we sleep or leave the house, since it could start a fire.  There's a few messages that pop up on the LED display but all seem random also: PROB..., E R R..., or it will show settings as if it's in an involved staging of cooking times and power levels.  There's no rhyme or reason that we can figure out to this.  It's at least 22 years old, and is clean and in good condition. Would appreciate any insight you can provide here.

Hi I am using kenwood microwave since last6 years.but now from last one year it suddenly started make sound while not in working and now it is not heating. Plz guide what to do


Time to throw it away. Microwave ovens can be dangerous if not working correctly. Micro-waves, (The actual waves themselves) can be lethal. Unless you really know what you are doing, do not under any circumstances dismantle the machine and switch it on. The cabinet of the machine is designed as a protective box and should stop random waves escaping and cooking anything else including you own insides. Generally Microwave ovens are uneconomical to repair, for the parts and labour you can buy a new one. Buy the most powerful you can. If you buy anything that is below 1000 Watts make sure it has a turn table. Remember that the more you place in a microwave oven, the longer it takes to cook. If you have a big family and you can afford it, you might like to think about a commercial oven 1600 - 1800 watts, that can cope well with large quantities well and will cook a tin of baked beans in less than a minute.

LG LMVM2055 1000 Watts Microwave Oven - Microwave turns itself


You likely have a shorting membrane keypad.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.


So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or at least leave the door open.

It's better not to use it, but if you do, as always, one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

The service manual is here.

To order Goldstar / L.G. parts, visit Encompass. You'll probably have to call them at 866-779-5835.

They can give you clarification on whether you have to order the membrane keypad separately (see this guide) or the whole front door panel (more costly but much easier).

They can also give you part numbers, which the manual does not have.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Kenmore 721 microwave fan turns on by itself


I have the exact same problem with my Kenmore Microwave model 721 that we bought in October of 2005. The Fan will just randomly turn itself on even when we are not cooking. It has been doing this for the last few months and is starting to become more frequent. There is no way to turn it off except to unplug it for several hours.
Was there a recall for this defect ?
