SOURCE: Open Microwave Door and Fan comes on

Usually this is a problem with the door switches or a broken door switch mount.

 

Sometimes after a part replacement one will find a couple of wires have been reversed.

 

There should be a mini-manual with wiring diagram inside the oven behind the control panel.

 

If those are all correct, you may have a problem with the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95.

 

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

SOURCE: when I open my microwave door, it starts running

.
In most cases, it's not actually cooking, but instead the fan, turtable and light may be on. Yet it does need attention.

What this usually means is that you have a shorted door switch or a bad door switch mount.

It's easy to tell if it's actually cooking, just place a cup of water inside and see if it heats.

If so, that could mean a stuck relay on the control board. If so, we repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service. Far less than a new board.

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

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.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or a friend 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

The problem may also be on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

SOURCE: GE Advantium 120 Microwave fan stays on, off only when door open

Looking at the schematic in the service manual here, I would say relay RY6 on the small sub PCB (relay board) has shorted contacts.

That's the relay that runs both the fan and turntable.

It's possible that it may be a bad connection or driving component on that board, but in my experience, it's virtually always a stuck relay.

The part number on the relay as shown in the photo is hard to read, but it looks like "OJ-SH-112LM".

I should have one of these or I can point you to one if you want to contact me with the exact number.

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

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

The fan comes on when I first open the door to put food in the mircoware.


The fan always comes on when you open the microwave door, to either put food in or take foods out. The oven doesn't know so it does both.

The fan removes condensation, steam and cooking smells.

I have seen where one of the door switches becomes intermittent causing the symptoms you are describing, tough to nail down considering there are more than one door switches.

Microwave light and fan goes off until door is slapped.


This seems to be a defective door/interlock switch. There is a minimum of three interlock switches inside the oven that operate by the catches on the door. By opening the door or slapping it you are causing the to make connection.

Microwave seems to turn on when door latch is opened


What's happening is you are activating one door switch a little before the other, and that is causing your light, fan, and turntable to come on. The plastic parts are not perfectly rigid, so they flex a little when you press the button, and that causes the lag to be more apparent. Even if you press the door open faster and look really close, you may notice the light, fan, and turntable coming on for a split second. That's perfectly normal. The relay on the control board must also be turned on before it will actually be cooking.

Microwave works with door open


If the top is open, the upper door switch should be open and the high voltage section should not be energized. That's the way it's *supposed* to work. But that buzzing is worrysome! Does the turntable turn during this condition? Does the inside light come on? How about the fan? If not, then I would doubt that it's cooking. If so, some models will do this. It's not uncommon to notice that the fan and light will try to come on for a split second when you shut the door. This would not indicate a problem. It has to do with the timing of the door switches and a replay on the board. If it's still under full warranty, it wouldn't hurt to call a GE-authorized servicer.
