Question about Microwave Ovens
Unit cuts off in the middle of cooking does not do it eveytime once about every 2 weeks then we have to reset the clock ect..........
When it cuts off, does it act like someone just hit the stop button or do you actually have to reset the clock as if it got unplugged?
If it's the first one, then it's probably a bad door switch or door switch mount, or possibly a bad connection on the circuit board or a failing circuit board relay.
If you wiggle the door up and down and in and out very slightly, does it fail? If so, this is more eveidence pointing to the door switch or door switch mounts.
If it actually resets so you have to set the clock again, then you are losing power somewhere. This could be caused by a bad connection at the fuse holder, at the magnetron or other thermostat / thermal cutout, or on the circuit board.
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: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
