Sharp MW won't shut off

Sharp Carousel II MW, 16 years old, keeps on heating unless door is open. When opening the door it shuts off like it should, light comes on, turntable stops- upon closing door I get a buzzing sound (magnetron?) but no light or turntable rotation, and it boils water as if it was on highest setting. Put in time and a reduced power setting, close door and it seems to operate normally, but it ignores the reduced power setting and heats at full power.
Short version- the magnetron is on full blast any time the door is closed.
Suggestion?

Sounds like it needs a new electronic board or PCB. Although I would consider a new microwave as your microwave is getting on in age and can be a danger to health or dangerous if something blows up.

Frigidaire gas oven, 5 years old, oven pre-heat light comes on and stays on, oven gets warm but not up to temp (it was like this for about an hour), also smell gas when oven door is opened. Burners work...


I don't have a solution, but I was wondering if it constantly beeps until you press the start button? I am having the same problem with my oven preheating. Until we can figure out how to stop this we unplug it and shut the gas off when not in use.

Only heats when door is open - if you turn on to preheat, nothing happens unless you open the door - the light and fan will be heard coming on, if you shut the door it all turns off


there is a microswitch on the door inner it sounds like its come loose or broken away affecting its operating tolerances should be easy to replace.

My oven door will not shut all the way. It


It is probably the self-cleaning latch that keeps the door from being opened during the self-cleaning cycle. Looks like it didn't retract all the way. Did you use the self-cleaning cycle? . Do this: Quiet the house down, open the door slightly and close it, letting it hit the obstruction. Do this again and again. You don't have to close it hard at all; in fact, do it gently. By listening, you will be able to hone in what is keeping it opened. Then go from there.

GE JKP45 double wall oven shuts off


This sounds like a loose connection (solder joint) on the main control board. I had one that had a similar problem. checked the price of a control board $350. I took the control panel off, took the board apart and found a loose connection on one of the relays. resoldered the bad connection. oven works fine now.
