  • Interlock switchIf your microwave is turning itself on, the first thing to check is the interlock switch. This is usually the first thing to malfunction that could cause this issue. If the interlock switch is bad then it will need to be replaced.
  • Main control boardIf your microwave is turning itself on and the interlock switch is still working, the probable cause is the main control board. If the control board is defective it will need to be replaced

    Microwave door doesn't close properly.


    It's doubtful that it's supposed to work that way. For safety's sake, Id take it in for repair.

    Kitchen aid mircowave #KCMS125YSB-0


    I went to the following website but it is not looking good for parts for your microwave. I am guessing from the number of things that are not available anymore, and the very high prices on things that are still available that this must be an old microwave. They might be able to point you in another direction if they do not have your part.

    How to fix mircowave


    Other then checking the plug and wall socket...Have you checked the fuse? It's inside under the vent panel. Most hardware stores carry common fuses.

    Whenever I open the door on my GE Spacemaker XL mircowave the internal fan goes on. This is the fan that goes on when the unit is cooking and not the exhaust fan. It goes off as soon as the door is closed...


    That is normal for it to spin for about a second or so becuase of switch changeover but should not remain on constantly when door is open. Have it checked up if it does not happen like the way I described it.

    Broken mircowave door


    What usually breaks is the door open lever.

    On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this.

    On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be
    removed.

    Please unplug the oven first.

    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.

    Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

    You can find exploded views and order parts for Kenmore models by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

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

    If we close the mircowave door the units start to run by itself. - it will not heat, but the light comes on and the turntable rotates it will not stop until we turn the power off - when power is turned...


    i think you have a welded controller, either a digital one or a mechanical one. microwave won't run unless you switch it to run. the door switches are safety switches to turn off the microwave once you open the door. if you have a digital controller, you could have a welded relay, if you have a mechanical timer, it could be a welded contact at the timer. another thing is that it should heat what ever you are heating. if it is not heating, check if it has a fuse and if it is busted. some fuse are installed to protect only the magnetron that is why the light and turn table are still running. if there is no fuse to the magnetron, then check the diode from the capacitor to the ground. it could be open. if not then you can have a bad magnetron. i hope i was able to help.

    Mircowave works, exhaust door opens, fan stop working


    From looking at the owner's manual, it looks like the vent fan is only supposed to come on when the internal temperature of the microwave gets too high OR when you press the VENT FAN pad. Here are a couple of fan-related excerpts from the owner's manual, which can be found here: http://products.geappliances.com/ProdContent/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SKUOBJECTS&DOCUMENT=Use%20and%20Care%20Manual&SKU=JVM1840BD (or the better URL here: http://tinyurl.com/yn7r6g) Automatic Fan An automatic fan feature protects the microwave from too much heat rising from the cooktop below it. It automatically turns on if it senses too much heat. If you have turned the fan on, you may find that you cannot turn it off. The fan will automatically turn off when the internal parts are cool. It may stay on for 30 minutes or more after the cooktop and microwave controls are turned off. - Vent Fan The vent fan removes steam and other vapors from surface cooking. Press VENT FAN once for high fan speed, twice for medium fan speed, a third time for low faw speed, or a fourth time to turn the fan off. Press the VENT FAN BOOST pad for extra fan speed. - Hope this helps.
