SOURCE: always on

Most probable failure is this VERY expensive part:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=4327040&image=1

This is what controls the Magnetron operation via the relay on the PCB. If the Magnetron is operational without programming it usually is the cause of the problem.

I would recommend that all wiring to the control board be verified before considering replacement of the board. The price of the board to me is off the charts in cost! Not sure what the original purchase cost was but the price of this board would make one consider unit replacement vs component replacement when you add in the cost of the service call.

I am sure this is not what you wanted to hear.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Kelly

SOURCE: door open button won't work on KitchenAid microwave model YKCMS135H

Page 3 of the exploded view here shows the door open parts 24510L and 250201 (or 23551B if your full model number is YKCMS135HSS).

What look like part numbers seem to be reference numbers.

Won't shut off


You may have a problem with a door switch or door switch mount, or there may be a shorted relay on the control board, which can easily be repaired.

Door latch


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Open Lever If the microwave door won't open the open lever might be broken. This part can be replaced separately.

Door Spring If the microwave door won't open the door spring may have broken. The door spring is located inside the door and keeps downward pressure on the door hook.

Door Latch If the microwave door won't open the door latch might be broken. The door latch is inside the microwave. The door hook, which is part of the door, engages with the latch to keep the door closed during operation. If the door latch or actuator breaks the door may not open.

Door Hook If the microwave door won't open the door hook might not be releasing properly. The door hook is installed inside the door and normally releases when the door is opened. The hook is made of plastic and will break over time. When this happens it will need to be replaced, it can't be repaired.

Button Spring If the microwave door won't open the button spring might be broken internally. The button spring can be replaced.
Button If the microwave door won't open the button might be broken internally. The button can be replaced.

Handle Actuator If the microwave door won't open the handle actuator might be broken. This is a plastic part which can become brittle over time. This part is connected between the door button and the door latch assembly.

Microwave won't start


I have the same problem. Is the light still on inside the microwave? Mine is on and the microwave thinks the door is not shut. I took the top off of the microwave and the latch needs to push down on a switch once shut. The latch was reaching the switch, but I think some spring in the door, pushing the latches down, has broken since it reaches the switch when closed but there isn't any downward force to flip the switch.
I am trying to figure out how to repair the latch but if your light is on when you "shut" the door, you may have the same problem.

I have a Haier microwave and tonight after heating some food, I went to close the door and upon closing it, the carousel started turning and it won't shut off.


It sounds like one of the door switches has become defective, each must be disconnected on the one side and tested with a digital meter using the ohms scale.

Our Microwave (JEM25GY/WY) finishes its program, shuts off and beeps; when I open the door to take out the food, the fan starts up again and doesn't stop until I close the door. Serious? Can it be...


Yes! this should be checked right away to make sure the magnetron is not running with the fan when the door is open , it may be a problem with one of the door switches going bad, left unchecked it probably blow the fuse in the microwave killing all power, but it is quite repairable. But please do not use until it has been checked out by a professional for safety reasons.

Microwave won't shut off


The door switches are what tells the microwave that the door is opened or closed. If they play up they could be causing your microwave to act strangely.

Repair or replace?


MICROWAVES ARE MADE TO BLOW THE FUSE IF THERE IS A POSSIBLY OF DANGER--THAT'S A GOOD THING...SAFTY SWITCHES ARE MADE TO CLOSE(SOME UN-CLOSE) WHEN THE DOOR IS OPEN AND SHUT AND IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU DO HAVE A LITTLE DOOR PROBLEM---THE REPAIR SHOULD BE FIXABLE AND MAYBE REASONABLE,,MY GUESS COST-WISE ,,,75.00,,OF COURSE ,IT ALL DEPENDS ON THE SERVICE COMPANY--TRY AN INDEPENDANT SERVICER (NOT SEARS,ETC) GOOD LUCK TUNICA
