Question about Microwave Ovens
The secondary interlock switch is bad. You need an ohm meter to verify that the switch is not 'closing' electrically. Opening the door when the microwave is running is the primary cause of this switch's failure. The secondary cause of this failure is from constantly running the unit for extended periods of time, usually more than ten minutes or more. Be careful..

SOURCE: microwave does not heat
What could cause this problem coud be a bad door switch, a bad HI Voltage capacitor, a bad power transformer, a bad Rectifier, a bad magnatron,or a bad circuit control board. Any one of these repairs could run from 65 to fix, all the way up to 200 bucks. You are probablt right, its time to buy a newer type with more lights, bells, and whistles. Good Luck

I would suspect either door switches or an intermittent control circuit board, either of which can be repaired. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure over time. I have a text file on my site called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems. You can find the file via a Google search. It will help you check and replace the door switches if you or an able friend is so inclined. In some cases, the problem is a bad connection or a bad relay on the control board. That's something we see fairly often, and we repair them for only $32.50 nationwide.

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!

The first step is to unplug it from the wall for a few minutes then try again. In case it helps, model EM-S5595 is unlocked by holding the Stop/Clear button as in the photo below. If that does not do it, try Sano/Fisher Service at http://sanyoservice.com/ . You may also have a keypad or control board problem.
