When you close the door, the system will not program , on our kenmore microwave oven. Now it trips the breaker. Why?


I am assuming that closing the door is a key to when the problem arises and will usually lead to a faulty door switch(s). The door switch must be made in order for the microwave safety circuit to be completed and let the microwave know that it is safe to operate. Door switch(s) are one repair worth making on a microwave as most other repairs are not worth the cost of the microwave oven. If you are handy you can check to make sure the switches are closing with a multimeter. Please make sure you have unplugged the microwave before attempting to check the switches. You do not need the power on to verify the closing of the door switch(s).

GE microwave (Model JE2160SF03) trips breaker when door opened


Remove the control panel, take pictures of the door switch wiring while they are still connected to the door switches, then remove the door switch assembly. Have someone at the appliance store check each switch and repair the ones that are defective.

I purchased a switch for $7, reinstalled the door switch assembly and the microwave is working fine now.

The 20 amp power fuse blows every time i start the mircowave oven?


The oven probably has a bad interlock monitor switch, one of several switches in a microwave that are operated by the door latches. The switch is wired so the fuse will blow if you try to run the oven with the door open, and it isn't operating properly when you close the door. As soon as the oven kicks on the power to the magnetron tube, the microwave source, the fuse blows. The switch may have been damaged if the door was slammed, or it's just a mechanical failure. It's not an expensive part, but any microwave repair involving the door should be done by a professional because of safety concerns, so you will have some labor cost to add in. It shouldn't cost as much as a new oven to make this repair, though, so it's probably worth fixing.

Timer changing but microwave is not turning on?


Hello :

It's a bad door switch or loose door switch mount . There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly .


WARNING : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

good luck .

please rate !

Microwave runs when door is opened and is not programmed to run.


Sounds like a defective door switch.  DO NOT USE UNTIL FIXED!!  Or replace the unit.  Microwave ovens have door switches to prevent operation when the door is open because the microwaves are dangerous to humans outside the unit.  The door and cabinet contain the microwaves when it is operating correctly.

Microwave shuts off by itself


The microwave has a safety door switches (2-3 micro switches)
The door mechanism should hit these micro switches. If you can open the machine, you can see that these micro switch has a holder that you can adjust and tighten to make sure that the hook of the door should activate them.

MICROWAVE TURNS ON WHEN DOOR IS OPENED.


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switches are most often damaged by opening the door while it's cooking (instead of pressing Stop / Clear first) or food
/ grease debris in the switch.
