Question about Westinghouse Microwave Ovens

Open Question

Help my microwave won?t stop beeping it?s mounted above my electric stove and it is also the exhaust fan. I use to think it only beeped after I had just finished or during boiling liquid, but lately it even beeps when the stove has not been used all day, it starts beeping at different time of the day during the beeping no touch pad buttons work opening the door will not stop it as well. It can go all night with out beeping and then early morning it will go wild, it may be quit must of the night and then for no reason go crazy. I have no problems with it except when its beeping then nothing works except the beeper

SOURCE: Random beeping and panel buttons not working

There may be a failure of some type in the system processor area.

Maybe some of the steam from the bioling water and oil and water from the cooking got inside on to the circuit board, and caused some damage.

It is also possible that the heat from the stove did some damage.

It is also possible that there was simply a failure in the system processor area.

The issue is probably your exhaust fan on your microwave comes on automatically when it detects a certain temperature. Mine does this as well but will turn off automatically after temperature goes down.

The touch pad need to be replace, it is not so cheap but if you want to fix it you can order the panel and do it yourself just make sure the unit is off and the capacitor is grounded.
good luck

Hi Laurie,
It seems that there is some clogging in the circuits that build up when the SET COOLS DOWN. So when the fault occurs please use a hair dryer to warm the circuit areas, the connection cords and the door switch -- check the inputs to the main board. Somewhere there is a short building up to give a malfunctioning.
Since the board was changed with the same result we need to check all other sections for the problems. The touch panel must be clean, is you suspect there were insects infested within then you need to warm and wash the sections clean so that there no residuals from them.
The heating will indicate the area of problem as when the heat is build up the beep must stop. So SIMULATE this process to come to the exact point of fault.
I personally feel every connectors and voltage points must be cleaned. If dirt is seen on PCB , use a soldering iron to touch up.

How to install a electric line for over stove micowave


This is usually best left to a licensed electrician, however in some homes there is already electrical wiring over the stove for an exhaust fan. You might be able to tap into the exhaust fan wiring and install an outlet that you can plug the microwave into, or if there is an electrical outlet near the stove area you might can tap into it just be sure that you are not overloading the outlet. For example if there is a refrigerator or other major appliance using power from this outlet it might not carry enough current to operate the refrigerator and the microwave at the same time and will cause the circuit breaker to open or fuses to blow.

Blower motor on above stove microwave not running


The dual fan in the back is the vent / exhaust / hood fa. It will run when you turn it on, or if the stove top gets too hot.

The other fan is the magnetron cooling fan, and it will only run when you are cooking. If it is not running, your magnetron can be destroyed.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here. That may help you a lot.

Danby Designer microwave (with exhaust fan mounted above stove) stopped working suddenly. Lights are on and microwave sounds audible but no heating of food kept inside.


With these symptoms I would suspect a bad magnetron or a loose connection at the FA terminal of the magnetron.

I would suggest you contact Danby customer service o locate their nearest authorized servicer.
