Question about Sharp R-1610 Microwave Oven

Microwave Fan Running for 24 hours

I was heating a casserole warmer gel pack yesterday morning. It said to have it in the microwave for 2 to 3 minutes. I set it for 3 minutes, took the trash out and when I came back in the gel pack had expanded to a huge bubble and looked like a jiffy pop popcorn item. The metal tray had been lifted off the holders and pushed the tray to the top of the microwave. I took the gel pack out, and the fan continued to run. When I got home last night the fan was still running and is as loud as a vacuum cleaner. I could not get it to shut off. Opening the door and closing didn't make any difference. The light remains on as the fan loudly blows. It now has been running for 24 hours straight. Is there a way on the control panel of the microwave to reset this? Or is my only option to go the service breaker and find the fuse? Is this a dangerous situation?

    We were cooking food for Christmas in the oven (below our microwave) and the same thing happened to us. The fan switched on in the microwave and would not turn off. We allowed it to run for about 6 hours, then finally unplugged it. When we plug it back in it continues to run. All the power display as well on the microwave is off also... nothing responds. Any ideas?

Sounds like cycling the power line did it.

Mmv5165bas vent fan will not stop running


Check to see if there's a relay providing power to the fan. If there is, the contacts might be sticking in the closed position. Assuming that this is an over-the-range unit, disconnecting the vent fan completely might not be a good idea as heat/steam from foods cooking on the range would more likely damage the microwave.

Roper Microwave fan won't shut off


THE FAN AND MICROWAVE TUBE RUN OFF THE ELECTRONIC TIMER. OPENING THE DOOR SHOULD SHUT IT ALL DOWN AND WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR AGAIN YOU SHOULD NEED TO PRESS THE START BUTTON AGAIN. IF NOT, ITS SOUNDS LIKE AN ELECTRONIC RELAY IS LOCKED CLOSED ON THE TIMER BOARD.

I have a MV1604ST over the range microwave oven. After I made my daughter's breakfast this morning, the fan kicked on and will not shut off. It has been running for hours. The microwave still works and...


There si a sensor on the bottom of those Micros that is supposed to turn the fan on when it closes, meaning it is hot, then opening when it cools back down. I expect you have a bad thermal sensor. I have very seldom found these to go bad. Another thing that can cause it is a bad door switch back feeding voltage where it is not supposed to. It will make the fan that cools the magnetron run until the bad switch is replaced.

DCS - CMO24SS - 900 Watt - Microwave not Heating


If all appears to be running as its working but just no heat. Could be issue with magnetron. You could also have loose connections to magnetron or somewhere in high voltaged as well.

Cannot heat


Sounds like it overheated, tripped the thermostat, then the thermostat reset. Chances are you have a bad magnetron. GE may have a campaign (not a "recall", mind you!) to offer free replacements if yours is a model that has a known history of problems with the magnetrons. I would call GE and ask them about that. *grin* GE Answer Center 1-800-626-2005 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
