Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

It's a Kenmore 85410. The microwave won't go off. Cooking ends, the light goes off, the turntable stops, but the microwave continues. It will stop when I open the door. It also appears that it won't cook at anything but the highest power. But there's just a constant humming and the oven gets hot unless I unplug (which I have) or open the door.

    thanks for replying... the fan does go off normally when timer keypad is used... does that it mean it's more likely in the control panel that the wiring has to be replaced??

If magnetron (source of heating MW) or fan are not turning off, that means that there is a contact, either in magnetron connectors, or on control board connectors, or that the control board is faulty.
If the contact to magnetron and fan is closing when you open the door then it is more likely a contact in control board connector.
The problem is fixed replacing the wiring harness connected to control board, and/or the keypad/timer assembly.
Magnetron and capacitors inside the MW can release electricity even when the appliance is not connected to power. For safety reasons the microwave oven must be tested for energy leakage after repair.

    That may suggest that the problem is control panel or keypad. Sometimes, depending on the model, this two parts are separate, in that case better replacing the keypad first.

MY stop/clear button doesn't stop all the time.


It may be making noise, and the light comes on, and the turntable goes around, but I'll bet it's not actually cooking (although that CAN happen). Try putting a cup of water in the microwave when this happens and see if it gets warm. If it does NOT get warm, then you just have a bad door switch. If it DOES get warm, then you have a stuck relay on the control board, and the control board will have to be replaced.
