Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwave that heats the food. The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave . Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing. There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

My microwave starts running when you open the door how can i fix that


It is supposed to. It is designed that way. It put the light on and the extractor fan to remove steam and cooking smells. Some have a timer that continues to run for a few minutes after cooking. It is not emitting the cooking radiation when the door is open. The are at least three safety devices to stop that.

The fan on the one day old Oster Microwave runs after finished cooking. All cardboard has been removed.


It is supposed to run on and will stop on its own as long as the door is closed. The purpose is to remove steam and condensation, plus smells from the cooking cavity and cool down the magnetron (the part that emits the microwaves).

MIcrowave emits an electrical smell while cooking. It still cooks, but has started emitting an odor recently when in use.


Is the smell ionized (the outside smell of a cold winter morning air) or more of an electronic component burning??? if it's more of an ionized smell it could be normal, (if the smell is strong) it could be a leaking high voltage cable (electric arching) bad insulator, if it's more of an electronic component burning smell, it could be a overheating component, in both cases you should have it checked by a professional technician...

Cheers!

Light and blower come on when you plug it in, but you can't cook in it,.


iv never been able to cook in a microwave oven? it just heats things up?
when its working right,,,this sounds like your one is burt out, they get old very fast if you do a lot of cooking in them, to be honest there only a powerfull radio stashion transmiting on very hight frequentcy ie:microwave! but the megatron ages, (this is the ariel that transmits) when it gets old it just wont work any more,,,know what i mean? at first it just takes a long time to cook,,, then it takes all night to do what it did all night? after that it gives up the gost and pops its cork, if i were you i would go out and buy yourself a new one, fixing yours wont be worth it

I have a frid microwave FMV145KB2 that has stop working


if the magnetron is shot, then replace the microwave! the magnetron is what produces the 'microwaves' that do the heating. get rid of it! buy a new one! the smell is from overheating circuitry- don't want to take the chance of a fire!
these days you can replace it pretty cheaply- with a fine piece of technology made in china! but, if it lasts 3-4 years, it's pretty cost effective.
once again! if your getting a 'burning' smell from it, unplug it and dispose of it!
good luck!
