Your oven is cooking by itself, which can cause arcing and even a fire.

So until it's fixed, please leave it unplugged or leaver the door open.

You can e-mail me at pupista@gmail.com and include your full model number and FCC ID number from the tag in the cooking cavity.

I'll be happy to help you.

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.

After the GE JVM1190BY002 Microwave stops its microwave sequence the fan motor above the touchpad just sits and hums but doesn't shut off.It still heats food corectely and it stops humming when I open...


You should first be sure your filters are clean and that your ductwork is clear.

See this link for a bulletin that may address your problem.

Otherwise, see this link in case you have a sticky door switch or relay.

Humming ge sapcesaver microwave


During operation, most of the built-in models have a panel that tilts out while the exhaust fan is on. When cooking is done, the exhaust fan shuts off and the panel retracts to its normal position. With the fan & microwave motor off, the hum is easier to hear. Look closely at the top panel the next time you hear the hum, and you'll probably see that it's retracting.

Microwave humming when you shut door


Do the inside light, turntable and internal cooling fan ALL come on when the door is closed (without pressing any keys) , or just one or more of those?

Does it actually heat when you shut the door (without pressing any buttons)?

(You can put a cup of cold water in it for a minute to test it)

I would first suspect a shorted door switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If it's not a door switch issue, I would say it has a stuck relay on the control circuit board.

We regularly repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service in about a week.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

Kenmore 1995 Built in Microwave humming sound only when door is close


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

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

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 a friend 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, which we repair these nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

1800 XL JVM1860BD - won't work


It sounds like your controller may be failing. Or it could be an electrical line problem. Any other electrical itmes giving you trouble? Has anyone measured the voltage level of your power line? It should be around 110-125 volts AC. If it's significantly lower or higher, you may have a bad connection in your breaker panel or in the wiring leading to the home.
