Sounds like a classic bad door switch or switch holder. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety info, info on door switch testing and replacement, and oven disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your base model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure.

 

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

 

We also have the complete service manual for this model at our site.

SOURCE: Fan continues to run when I open the door.

It may be a door switch problem (see this file) or a stuck fan relay on the control circuit board, which we can repair for $39.95 in most cases.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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.

The vent fan on my over the range Whirlpool microwave (mh1150xmq-0) runs any time I use the microwave (as if I have turned the vent fan on "low"). This doesn't seem to affect cooking, but it...


You either have a shorted exhaust fan thermostat or a shorted fan relay on the control circuit board.

While we regularly repair these controllers by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee, or you can order a new control circuit board (part number) from the Pros here, we strongly suggest that you or someone you know check the exhaust fan thermostat first.

It should read "open" on a continuity (ohms) test. If it reads closed (shorted) it is bad and the fan will run all the time.

Or you can simply unplug the oven's power, disconnect one lead from the thermostat, tape it over to prevent shorting, then plug the oven back in. If the fan still comes on, the problem is on the board. If it does not, the thermostat is shorted.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

I regularly see (and repair) this light and / or fan failure on model JVM1660SB005 and most any model of over the range microwave.
The problem is on the controller assembly, which I regularly repair very affordably.

At my Web site, you can get details, plus I have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

For more free DIY and other help & advice, feel free to contact me via my site.

Please include FULL model number*, FCC ID number*, + detailed symptom information. ( * on the tag in cooking cavity or around door frame or control frame or on back)

Occassionally (about 5% of the time) the microwave continues to cook and buzz after the timer has run out and the fan stops running.

Microwave still continues after cooking time is ended


It is the fan. Im guessing it only happens on combination cook and not when you are only using the microwave setting. It happens because the oven is hot and it helps to cool it quicker. It is normal. The microwaves are not working and neither is the oven-just the fan.
