Please inspect the plastic latches that should actuate the door switches. Sounds like you may have broken one when slamming the door too hard

SOURCE: Why does the light / safety switch stay on when the door latches shut ?

Most likely there is a part missing from the door latch mechanism that you need. This probably broke off when the handle failed. It would be a tab or wedge shaped piece of plastic that strikes the door switch and pushes the switch closed when the door is completely shut. You will need to find that piece and glue it back on or get a new handle assembly from Samsung.

Microwave wii not shut off unless you open the door and sometimes starta when you shut the door.


Sounds like one of the door switches is shorted. Check all three for proper operation with power off. WARNING: Microwaves contain lethal voltage levels can be more than 4000V, more then enough to kill you! BEFORE doing an work on them, unplug from power and discharge the capacitors. If you don't know what you're doing its better to leave it alone and get it professionally serviced.

Microwave door problems


There will be a switch that the door presses when it closes, somewhere around the edge of the entrance to the microwave, double check this is clean and able to move freely.

Microwave arcing


The magnet item is known as a magnetron, as far as your pcb is concerned check for shorts on the hv diode, be advised microwaves can kill you, never work with the cover off and always discharge the HV capacitor, if you don't know how to do this then do yourself a favour and get the lid back on and buy a new one, If you do know then good luck!!

Kenmore hood microwave door was slammed shut, now it won't power on. Fuse is good, door switches don't look damaged or dislodged. I haven't ohm'd the switches. They should not be the problem as the...


While the door was slammed it is possible that the connection to the main board was disconnected. so since there is no display I recommend that you check the power to the processor board, check if the LT circuit is working , if the board fuse has failed or if the power supply here is faulty.
Only if the display comes back will it confirm the working o the processor.

Ran on power for 10 minutes, thought it was on timer.


First, check the fuse usually located above the display, inside the top lid.  You can't see if it's blown, so you must test it for continuity with a meter or self powered test light.  Usually fifteen amp, and of the ceramic variety.  (available at radio shack type places) If the new one blows instantly, it's likely a door switch shorted out.  If it blows after a few seconds, it could be the magnetron gone bad, or internal arcing.  The main transformer will sometimes short out, but that's rare.   Be absolutely careful, should your fingers venture around the magnatron connections down below, as there is high voltage and current that can kill you.  This warning applies even when it's unplugged!
The door switches operate together, so if one slams the door shut it will often blow the fuse with no other damage.  Sometimes the crow-bar switch will sustain damage in the process.  Usually, if the switches click individually, they're good.  If one doesn't click, it'll almost always be shorted.  They're located behind the door catch, inside the unit beside the display board, and a bit hard to access.  You will need to reach past the magnatron for this, so be careful.

Door slammed and no microwave is dead


yep you got it in one, I must have advised about 10 people today about this. when the door is slammed the door protection circuit does not operate correctly and then takes out the mains fuse inside the unit. renove the case and locate the fuse, normally where the cable enters the unit. as long as the fuse is the correct amperage, lenght and diameter you have no problems. do not test the unit with the cover off and be careful as the capacitors can hold a lethal charge

Microwave light, turntable, and fan run after the door closes


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

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

No Power Whirlpool MH7140XF


does it not light up at all? A microwave has a fuse on it. Probably accessible from the back panel. if not you would need to disassemble it. Most likely cause of this is slamming the door broke one of the safety switches the door has so the microwave knows when the door is open. And it shorted against something when it broke. It might have simply blew the fuse but then again you might have fried it.

This problem normaly happens when the door is not closed properly for a long time and flashing and buzzing starts to give user a indication for same. Allthough it is not risky as microwave oven has safty door switches wich does not allow oven to operate while door is open. Take care and close the door properly before you leave kitchen..
