Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

My sylvan is sr11092 runs all the time unless I unplug it. The control panel will not work while it is running. I read that it could be the door switches. How do I repair this?

When you close door it runs and will not stop unless I open it by pressing door button or unplug unit.

Microwave won't stop running


there's a ghost in your microwave, call ghost buster. Seriously, the problem is the control panel. (((((the microwave oven can store thousands of volts of electricity in its high voltage capacitor, even after the microwave oven has been unplugged. That's more than 30 wall outlets combined.
Replacing electronic parts in a microwave oven can be extremely dangerous.))))))) tank you

My ge microwave just runs. It will not stop unless I unplug it.


First you should determine whether it's cooking when it should not be, in this case anytime it is plugged in and the door is closed or open.

Do that by putting a cup of water in a microwave-safe container into the unplugged microwave, shutting the door, then plugging it for about a minute.

Then unplug the oven and check to see if the water is warmer.

If so, you have a shorted secondary relay on your microwave''s control circuit board, and we regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 with a one-year guarantee.

Do that test again by putting the water in, leaving the door open, and plugging the oven in for about 30 seconds or so. If you get any arcing or buzzing or flashing, unplug it.

If it is not cooking, then you need to test further.

If it just seems to be "running" with the door shut, but it is not cooking (as shown in the above tests) then note whether the oven lamp, internal cooling fan and turntable are running when the door is shut, but when you open the door, the turntable and colling fan go off.

This should mean you have a shorted main relay on the board. We can fix that, too.

Differing symptoms would indicate a bad door switch or door switch mount.

Our info file on door switches is here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

Also at our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Fan runs when unit is off


The control relay has gone bad, to replace this if you can find the board runs about $195.00, I hate to say do not repair something but in this case, I would have to say it is time to retire this one.

Need to know how to remove the control panel to check the fuse. Will not run, push start, beeps three times and light is not working. Please help us!


the fuses for microwaves are not normally placed on the control panel...they are in the back near the power cord...but the fact that it beeps 3 times means the fuse is ok...power is going in....most likely, the fault is one or more of the door interlock switches which arc every time you open and close the door and they corrode or wear down very badly sometimes even burn away so that there is no more contacts to come together....interlocks are cheap to buy and they just snap in place....access to them is easy...just remove the cover and look right behind where the door closes on the inside, you'll see a plastic bar on the door that when you close the door...it pushes on the interlock switches on the inside to activate the oven.......if the interlocks are ok...then you probably have a shorted magnetron....very common on any type of microwaves are these 2 parts...( the interlock switches and /or magnetrons.....it's not likely that your control panel is bad unless you physically see that something has burned on it.....good luck

Constantly runs but does not heat


The circuit board is faulty. It should be covered under the warranty. Call GE or the place of purchase.

JVM1330 microwave only works when holding door handle toward us


You should first check your door switch mounts. My help file on door switches is here.

If that's not it, I would suspect that you have a shorted main relay on your control board, which i can repair. Details here.

FixYa doesn't notify me when there's a response, so if you have other questions, please contact me directly.

Microwave Model#wes1130dm1bb keeps running uless unplugged. won't let you program a time to cook but will let you program the clock the clear off works but the oven continues to run


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, or sometimes a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk If it's NOT a bad door switch, it may be a stuck relay or other problem on the control panel / circuit board. We repair these control panels nationwide for $39.95. For details on the repair service, see our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
