Samsung microwave turns on when open door


The switch assembly is somehow staying "closed" satisfying the interlock and enabling it to run.
Disassemble the unit, beware specially of the high voltage capacitor, if you aren't comfortable or competent, buy a new microwave. If you are mechanically inclined, disassemble the unit until the switch assembly is accessible; it will have the door latch attached to it.
The switch is either broken or something? exogenous is keeping it closed. It may have come loose due to the door slamming?.
It's a simple fix. I am certainl you will be successful.

Why is light staying on and its making annoying humming sound?


The door switches are either faulty or not being depress when the door is closed, this usually means that the door and the cabinet are out of alignment

I have a magic chef microwave that heats well but when the door is closed it hums and get really hot on top while not in use. Eventually it will stop working all together until it cools down then I can...


This one actually sounds like the unit is cooking when the door is closed without blowing the fuse as it is supposed to do. Unplug it from the wall and let it cool down, which it probably already is. Put a cup of cold water in it, close the door and plug it in for one minute. Unplug it from the wall and check the water. Did it heat up? I'd bet that it heated the water up. Sometimes the cook relay sticks closed and it stays in cook mode. This condition is supposed to blow the fuse but really rarely it doesn't. I've only seen this happen 3 or 4 times out of about 14,000 units I have looked at in my career.
It would need a new control PCB and new door switches and probably a new magnetron.

Door won't stay closed


I just had this issue happen to me last week.. fortunately I was standing in my kitchen when it happened... I heard a snap and then a piece fall down the inside of either the door or the front key panel.. I'm assuming this controlled the door locking/oven turning on safety mechanism. The inside light wont go off and it won't turn on to cook.. I am trying to figure out if it's worth paying to fix or just replace the whole unit!? Anyone know if this is fixable by oneself rather than spend a bunch of money on a service technician??

After use, fan keeps running and control panel not working


Hi, this is a major chip fault. this chip is located on the control board and, it is responsible for initiating the cooking cycle correctly. you will need to replace the control board asap. it has failed.
