There is a switch inside your oven, behind the walls where you can't see it. Normally, the catch that closes the door trips this switch to allow the oven to run, like the fridge light in reverse.

Either your switch is loose or broken, but should be easily fixable by a knowledgeable repairman.

Whether or not that repair is cost effective compared to buying a new microwave is another matter entirely...

My microwave keep working when I open the door and it is stopping when I close the door.Then working normal but I cannot keep my door open, it keeps running. What can I do??


First, It is very very dangerous for a microwave to run with door open. The door is also a shield to protect you from the microwave radiation. There should be a safety interlock to prevent this from happening. DO NOT USE the microwave! Seek out professional repair or replace the unit.

Microwave is still running when the door is open


The cooling fans run for a time after the magnatrons have stopped, The magnatrons are the heating components so I dont think you are in any danger as the microwave doors are double locked so the magnatrons cant run once the door is open

I can help solve this fiasco , opening the unit while its running to stop it is not good to do because it will wear the door switches due to the load of power the unit uses while running the switches are not made to cycle the unit.
2nd there is radiation in the unit and around the unit while running so you should not reach in inside the unit immediately when stopped , give it a few seconds. Some commercial microwaves have an un-safe level of radiation 20+ feet away from the unit.
Most likely why they always get the order wrong.
Hope this helps.

Microwave runs when door open


This is probably a a bad door switch or door switch mount. Chances are only the fan and light are running when you open it, but better safe than sorry. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure but not the only one. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. You can find these files by searching at Yahoo.com (not Google) for this: microwave display safety.txt If you still have a problem, please write back with more detail. Be safe!
