    Well at least now I know where to start on fixing the switch or just testing the switch for my microwave. This unit is fairly new and didn't want to buy another.

Hi, Welcome to FixYa

There are three basic types of self-cleaning oven door locks:

1. Manual lock

2. The electromechanical door lock is operated either by pressing a button on the oven's control panel or by physically moving the latch. In either case, the action will activate solinoid.

3 The electric door lock is activated by the user setting the cleaning controls on the control panel of the range. This activates an electric motor, which in turn activates the locking mechanism.

1. To check the function of the door latch, refer to your range's operating manual to determine the type of latch and the location of the latch's operating switch or sensor. Check that the latch is operating freely throughout its range.

2. Before repairs or further testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. A jolt from 220 volts can be fatal, use caution

Set the latch to the "clean" position and test for circuit continuity at the terminals of the switch with your ohmmeter function. If there is no continuity, the switch is faulty

if these steps are not working for you might have to take it to repair

Please goto this site and refer your problem. If it is not listed send an email to them

GE Microwave PVM1790DR1BB light works but no fan and the turntable does not turn

I have this exact model with the same issue. I am a technician by trade on office equipment. I took the cover off where the door latches go in and there are 3 relay switches behind there. I adjusted the switches so the door latch would make better contact with them.

The microwave will not come on ,however the timer starts running . If you hold the latch in slightly it will run correctly but you have to keep it pressed in. I have the sharp carousel model 1200watt

Throws breaker everytime I plug it in Emerson Electric Microwave model MWG9111SL

That would be a bad monitor interlock (middle door switch) or its mount is bad.

When I set the timer and close the door, the door latches fine. When I push the start button the timer starts to countdown but the microwave doesn't start. If I push the door release in about 1/8 " ,...

If your model number is in the Sharp R-1500 series, then that's a problem with the bottom door switch or its mount.

Timer changing but microwave is not turning on?

Hello :

It's a bad door switch or loose door switch mount . There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly .

WARNING : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

good luck .

You need to trace the power feeding the high voltage transfomer. Because the table doesn't turn, it implies that a door switch or safety interlock is the problem.
