When you say stays on , is the magnetron still running ? The door switches need replacement or cleaning or timing went out.

SOURCE: GE Microwave JE1640 works only when holding the switch

VK, most likely the switch body has become loose and it's out of adjustment. Unfortunately, to gain access to it, you'll have to remove the MW from the cabinet, set it on a suitable work area and disassemble it. Before doing anything like this, please read the following link carefully and ask yourself if you're up to it... http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/safety.html Remove the trim then remove the screws holding the MW. Pull the MW out and rotate slightly to see where it's plugged in and unplug it. Then pull it all the way out. Remove all the aluminum trim from the MW and all the screws holding the cabinet. To remove the cabinet, stand behind the MW and grasp both sides... pull back and up at the same time. Set aside. NOW!!! DISCHARGE THE CAPACITOR AS PER THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE LINK ABOVE!!! OK, up by the control panel, you'll see the latch/lock assy. (it has 3 brown switches mounted to it). It's held in place by 2 screws, the lower screw is the one you'll be working on. Adjust this by opening and closing the door and watch the action on how it works and make your adjustments as needed. Now, you'll need to test it before reinstalling. Plug it in, BUT DON'T TOUCH ANY WIRING! Now give it a try. If you need to make another adjustment, DISCHARGE THE CAPACITOR AGAIN BEFORE DOING SO!!! Do this every time you plug and unplug! Continue adjusting 'til you get it. Now, there's a chance that one of those switches is about to go bad and the mounting bracket is fine. In this case, those switches are generic... not GE specific. Remove the wiring from the switches and make notes on their respective locations. Remove the switches from the bracket (starting from the top) and label them 1, 2 and 3. Take these to your local appliance parts store and ask for generic replacements, they are cheap... about 5 bucks each. Then replace them in the same order you removed them. And re-test. This will get you fixed, but please be careful working on Microwave ovens. They are dangerous!

SOURCE: Microwave runs when door open

This is probably a a bad door switch or door switch mount. Chances are only the fan and light are running when you open it, but better safe than sorry. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure but not the only one. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. You can find these files by searching at Yahoo.com (not Google) for this: microwave display safety.txt If you still have a problem, please write back with more detail. Be safe!

SOURCE: Microwave door tension spring

See answer here http://www.fixya.com/support/t265705-microwave_door

in different thread.. Basically have to pry plastic trim ring off inside of door with putty knife (careful, it cracks easily) to get to screws on bottom of door. See second pic. Top screws are easily accessible from inside of door. Spring can easily be replaced by hand once you get adequate access. You'll need a fairly stubby right angle screwdriver (I used a cut-down #2 Phillips bit and small Vice-Grips as a make-do) to get to the screws. Also need Torx (T10, I think) to detach the shock absorber doodads from the door where they attach above the hinges. If you're just starting to take the door apart, be careful when you take out the top 2 screws on the inside-- they hold the inside plastic piece on , but they also hold the whole outer stainless/ glass/ handle piece on. It just slips in at the bottom, so be ready to slide it out when you take these screws out.fea33aa.pngc391898.jpg

SOURCE: Whirlpool Gold Accubake system microwave indicates

I just had the same problem with my microwave. First DISCONNECT THE POWER. Remove the front top grill (screws are on top of microwave). Unscrew the one screw at the top of the control panel and lift it out of the way. You will see three micro switches to the left of the pannel. I bent the metal frame they were mounted to by hand to move them back into place. The microwave oven works great now. If this does not help, then I would consider replacing the top limit switch.

Model E130BM55HSC. How can I replace lower door handle bracket?


Hello Teresa, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that you need assistance replacing a component on your Electrolux microwave. In order to replace the bracket you would need to disassemble the door. You should seek help from a professional technician for proper assistance with the disassembly. This will help you avoid any personal harm of improper disassembly of the microwave. Best of luck! -Matt

Are the doors from electrolux eml38405x microwave oven can fit to electrolux emc38905x?


Replacing the door is one of the most demanding service interventions in the microwave. Substitution is possible only with the original door, otherwise may cause leakage of radiation what is very dangerous.
For identity doors of two different models of the microwave please contact an authorized service center.

Electrolux microwave 318279620a - I have this in a rental property. It has 'blown up' (interior scorched). How do I get a replacement? This was purchased as an oven/microwave combination.


Is it your own or in the rental?
If it is under warranty you may get a replacement, if not contact the manufacturer and they will usually give you a rebate on a new one.

I have a frigidaire Electrolux gallery series glmv168cqi microwave. The timer counts down, but the oven doesn't turn on. Sometimes when you open the door the fan turns on.


That would be a failing bottom door switch, or its mount.
My help file on door switches is here:
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/doorsw.txt
There's a video here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Once the control panel has been removed, you can access the door switches for testing and possible replacement.
There should be a technical manual hidden behind the controller or grille, too.

There is in most units a switch embedded in the side where the door opens--if out of position etc it will prevent the unit from working--its there to prevent operation if door is not closed.

You would have to get inside to see if it is moved or even the plastic that holds it is melted etc.
