SOURCE: nnt553w panasonic microwave. Whilst heating

When you enter the time and press Start:

Does the inside light come on?

Does the turntable rotate?

Do you hear the internal cooling fan running?

Does the time count down?

SOURCE: Door will not stay closed,

If you gently push up on the door latches (hook-like devices on the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off inside.

Normally the problem is a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

We have critical safety & disassembly info at our site, linked here:

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Microwave "DOOR" in display.

Most likely the switch that senses whether or not the door is closed is either out of adjustment, meaning when the door closes it doesn't physically make the switch contacts close, or the switch is defective. If you can physically find the switch you can "trick" it by holding it closed with a piece of tape. If that works then the switch is simply out of adjustment. If that doesn't work then you can short together the two wires going to the switch which simulates the closed internal contacts of the switch. If that works your switch has failed. If neither works then you may have a broken switch wire or solder joint where the switch inputs it's signal to a circuit board. If it is a bad circuit board you may spend the same amout of money replacing the board as you would buying a new microwave. Please be careful with theses test procedures and remember dealing with electricity can be a shocking experience! Good luck.

I have a JVM1850 White microwave-over the oven-installed 3 years ago. Last evening the unit would not turn off. The inside light and fan continued to run, however, the microwave was not working.

All the controls and functions seem to operate, but when completed, the unit remained working, as stated above, with the door opened or closed.

If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work. You should check the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry and the circuit board for this kind of problems. But for that you will need a certified technician to help you make these repairs.

My Frigidaire PLMBZ209GCA Microwave stopped working. I was in the middle of cooking something for 10 minutes and it stopped working half way thru, but the display kept on counting down. If I try to use it...

If it stopped working while you were cooking my first guess is that the magnetron TCO got hot and opened. It is supposed to reset after cooling down, but if it is old it may not have done so. Of course, there should be at least two door switches that close when you close the door. There is also a monitor switch that closes when opening the door (open with door closed). If you remove the control you should be able to check continuity on all switches, but you need to remove the wires to get a true reading. Some M/O have a TCO on top of the cavity, but you need to remove the cover to get to that. If you need more help, just get back to me.

When I close the door the microwave display goes completely out and the unit is not operable for at least 5-10 minutes, i thought it was the thermal cutout below the turntable (by the bulbs), but after...


If the display goes out immediately upon closing the door, but comes back on by itself later, that would be quite a mystery.

If you close the door then it goes out in a couple of minutes, then I would suspect that the oven is cooking anytime the door is closed, but the cooling fan is not running, leading to overheating and shutdown of the thermostat on the magnetron. Then when it cools down, the magnetron's thermostat resets and the unit powers back up.

You didn't mention your model number, but since you psoted this under Frigidaire FMV156, I'll take a chance that's it.

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here for free download to help you.
You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

If yours is a different model, please feel free to contact me directly with that model number and I may be able to point you to the service manual and give you free diagnosis help.

Kenmore 721 microwave fan turns on by itself

I have the exact same problem with my Kenmore Microwave model 721 that we bought in October of 2005. The Fan will just randomly turn itself on even when we are not cooking. It has been doing this for the last few months and is starting to become more frequent. There is no way to turn it off except to unplug it for several hours.
Was there a recall for this defect ?

Hotpoint RVM1425BA-003 Microwave Oven Stovetop Light Does Not Work

The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inopoerable or stuck on.

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:
