RE: Samsung microwave SMH7187STG mfg'd 5/08. I heated cup of tea 2 min.Then I closed micro's door & micro emitted a continuous electrical buzzing sound.I opened door & buzzing stopped.


The cook relay on your control board is shorted, and the unit is cooking whenever you close the door.

When the magnetron overheats, its thermostat opens, shutting power down until the unit cools to a safe level, then power is restored.

I regularly repair these with my $54.95 service, which includes insured return shipping.

Details are here, or for full information and instructions, please e-mail me here at pupista@gmail.com and remind me of your full model number and symptoms.

Frigidaire microwave plmv168cc1 makes humming noise when door closed


Chances are that the secondary (cook) relay on the control circuit board is shorted, meaning that the oven is actually cooking any time the door is closed.

You can test that by putting in a cup of water, shutting the door, and letting it go for about 30 seconds, then checking the water temperature.

This is dangerous, and can lead to a fire, so please unplug the oven until it is repaired.

The relay can be replaced for far less than the cost of a new control circuit board.

Kenmore elite microwave 721.80833 stops cooking intermittently


Check the door switches if one is bad it may think the door is being opened and stop the unit from running. If it is from a bad connection it will get worse as it gets hotter while running.

If I stop regular microwave cooking to check the progress, and then push start to continue, it does not cook. It just stops working. I have video of bacon taking 15 minutes to cook, because it stopped. ...


Sounds like door switch issues. Thinking the only thing you did was open and close the door, not change programing or anything. If you have an issue with a door switch and it doesnt close right after opening and closing the door( when you stir), the unit thinks the door is open so it will not run. Once the bad connection cools down it contracts and reconnects and the unit will work again. Frequently you can find which switch is doing that if you just look at the switches and see if you have any browning inside of the plastic insulators over the wires that push onto the switch terminals. If the connecton is bad it will get hot that will brown the plastic protector

Hi! I like my [2001] Whirlpool MT2110SJQ 1100 Watts Microwave Oven very much, but have been having some occasional problems (possibly due to its age???). The first problem is that occasionally...


Arcing is a sign that the Magnetron is shorting out. Make sure cover, usually plastic, is installed properly covering Magnetron port. It keeps food from entering port. This is a dangerous condition, replace unit.

Model R-1460, when I shut the door it runs but doesn't heat up. What needs to be done to fix it?


Do you mean that when you close the door, the fan comes on? If so, it sounds like a bad door switch. Probably the secondary interlock switch.
This failure is caused by opening the door when the unit is in cook mode. On ALL microwaves, not just one or two brands.......
Be sure to push the stop button before opening the door to add or stir... Or wait for the cook cycle to end. (This is why microwaves have a two step function on the stop/clear button. Hit stop once to stop cook mode and twice to reset timer).
You should use an ohm meter to check all 3 switches. The switch can be either stuck 'closed' or physically closed but not 'making' electrically.
