Many micro switches have markings of "NC" and "NO" and "C" on them; indicating which terminal is what. You might be able to get a schematic for this on the Magic Chef web site.

OVEN TURNS ON BUT DOES NOT HEAT


Most of the times the intermittent problem is due to the door safety microswitch. You will have to take the cover apart and check the two or three microswitches that are actuated in the close/open action of the door. They can be located very close to the locking levers on the right side of the window.
TO check these Microswitches I suggest to use a series circuit with an ordinary filament lamp and a suitable battery or Power supply.
These microswitches have three terminals, although, maybe not all 3 used, They are: a Common, a Normally Open and a Normally Closed.
Please take care not to missconnect or change the terminal positions. A good practice is to take a picture of the connections with your cellphone prior to disconnect. Good Luck.

The door open/close some microswitches. During the cooking process they became greasy and working bad. You must replace them or if you're a skilled man, wash them.

THE DOOR OPENER SEEMS TO HAVE A DISCONNECT AND HAS TO BE PRESSED EVER SO SLIGHTLY FOR THE MICROWAVE TO GO ON. CAN I FIX THIS?


There are three microswitches in the door latch assembly. One of them has failed (most often the lower one). With some mechanical know-how one can easily replace the bad switch with just a phillips screwdriver. There are two normally-open switches, and one normally-closed switch. They can be purchased off of ebay for about $10, and changed in 15 minutes.

I have a Sharp Microwave R-520 KS. And it stopped working. I thought it was due to a latch problem. But now I am not sure. I took it apart -- and the latching and microswitches seemed to be working...


Did you disconnect and test the three latch assembly microswitches with a multimeter or continuity tester? The top and bottom switch are normally-open, and the middle switch normally-closed. The lower switch seems to be the one that takes a beating and most often fails. It should be an Omron D3V-16G-3C25 and can be found on eBay for $10, or via an electronic parts supplier.

This problem is caused by a microswitch that is sticking in the closed position. Inspect and replace the defective microswitch in the latch assembly.

GE Advantium Microwave section doesn't work.


The primary interlock switch on my Advantium has failed twice. The replacement part is available at: appliancepartspros.com part no. for my Advantium was AP2622452 and it cost $11.74 + $6.95 shipping.

For what it's worth, my nylon connector and wire covering were also scorched a bit but the last primary interlock switch lasted me for over a year.

Please note that I am not an expert at repairing appliances and that I assume no responsibility or liability for any attempt you may make to repair your own appliance.

JMC7000ADW Blows circuit breaker


I've had this problem twice with our microwave. The hint to where the problem lies is that the breaker blows when you open the door at times. Inside the microwave are three microswitches; primary and secondary interlock micro switches and an Interlock Monitor switch. The switches are supposed to shut down the microwave if it is running and the door is opened. But, I've found the upper primary switch can stick internal at times and when the door is opened the stuck switch will, because of the way it is wired as a safety switch, cause either the fuse or possibly the main circuit breaker for the oven to pop. The reason the stuck switch blows the breaker or fuse is when the door is opened the interlock switch will cause the neutral wire from the AC power to be applied to the Upper Primary Interlock switch which normally should be open when the door is opened, but if the switch is intermittent or the contacts weld themselves shut the neutral line is connected direct to the "hot" side of the power line through the fuse and thermostat. The first time my microwave failed the switch had melted the contacts together inside the switch and the second time the switch became intermittent and would blow the breaker to the over ever so often. I suspected the switch the second time this happened and utilizing an ohm meter I checked the switch several times by opening and closing the door and once in a while it would remain closed instead of opening when the door was opened. Of course while trouble shooting the power cord to the microwave must be disconnected and use all safety precautions when working around the high voltage areas inside the microwave. I wrote Jenn-Air about the bad switch and the way it is wired into the circuit, but never received any acknowledgement. I suspect these microswitches are under rated for the amount of current that passes through the switch, thus they overheat and eventually arc the contacts together. I hope this helps explain the intermittent problem and could explain many of the intermittent blown fuse problems I see in these internet help sessions
