Why won't my interior microwave light turn off and my microwave won't start?


It sounds to me that your door switches aren't working.Your oven is protected by a couple of switches that engage when you open or close the door.They control a couple of safety features and also your interior light.One of them seems defective.

I have a GE Microwave - labeled "Sensor Turntable" but unsure of model number. Microwave runs. However, when the door is opened, the microwave turns ON. Have reset our breaker. This does not...


Somehow you have a short somewhere or the door catch switch(s) contacts got damaged. If you are mechanically inclined, you can start by unpugging the unit and removing the case so you can inspect the door switch(s) assembly. Determine what is "normally open" and "normally closed" on the switch(s) and then Ohm them out with a multi-meter. Some of the switches are mounted on adjustment screws for propar contact on the door catches.

Check your door satey interlock switches.

If these switches fail (do you open the door while the machine is cooking?), the microwave doesnt know the door is shut and will not turn on the magnatron.

If you need more help, let me know.

Wont heat items in the micro or convection


MODEL NUMBER NEEDED

Apparently this is not actually an R-510HK since that model does not have convection mode. Can you reply back with the correct model number? We may have the service manual for you.

A PRELIMINARY OPINION

It sounds like you have loose door switch mounts or possibly loose door hinges.

If the door won't open via the door open button, then the outer cover will have to be removed.

BEFORE YOU RATE THIS

This is a preliminary post, asking for further information (model). Please withhold your rating until we actually offer the solution.

MICROWAVE TURNS ON WHEN DOOR IS OPENED.


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switches are most often damaged by opening the door while it's cooking (instead of pressing Stop / Clear first) or food
/ grease debris in the switch.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
