    What ever the make, you need to phone those suppliers and must quote them a model number. Normally it is in the door rim as you open it or at the back on a sticker or tag. With that information you should be able to get the board. I'm sure you can do it, just do it slowly and carefully. One thing to note, when removing the old board, carefully remove the keypad ribbon cable. This is done by pulling on a plastic bar which releases the ribbon cable. Replace it exactly the same way.

When I turn on my microwave. It sometimes shuts power off. The lights will go off and it will not run. I can unplug and plug it back in after a minute or two and it will work fine.


Sounds like the internal cooling fan may be stuck or defective. This will cause the micro to overheat which intern trips an internal heat safety. Once it cools down it will try to start again and repeat the same problem. Cooling fan is usually near the back behind the control panel.

Dacor Microwave DCM24S cooling fan continues to run


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

  1. Interlock switchIf your microwave is turning itself on, the first thing to check is the interlock switch. This is usually the first thing to malfunction that could cause this issue. If the interlock switch is bad then it will need to be replaced.
  2. Main control boardIf your microwave is turning itself on and the interlock switch is still working, the probable cause is the main control board. If the control board is defective it will need to be replaced.

My microwave wont heat up but runs normal


The make & model number would be helpful. There are alot of veriables that might cause this to occur. How long was the MW in use (the unit might have been to hot and the safety engaged) keeping the fan on to cool it down. There could be an issue with with one of the door interlock switches. Depending on the engineering, the control board could have had a hickup via a over current & shut down to protect itself. During the cut out was the cavity light on when the door was open. was the display blank. If you unplugged the unit waited a minute & then plugged it back in, did it operate again. It is not a good idea to open the control panel up, if your do not understand how to do basic electrical troubleshooting.

GE Profile Space,aker 1800 microwave is making


You should keep it unplugged until it's fixed. If it's cooking while it should be off, that can damage the oven or even start a fire.

It's either a failed door switch or door switch mount, or a bad electrolytic capacitor on the control board, which we can repair for $39.95.

If you're hearing a fan or motor running, I'd suspect the switch. See this file for help.

If it's a buzz (like a power line buzz) then I'd suspect the board capacitor.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please include your full model number from the tag in or on the unit) for more help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Works for approx 30 secs then it cuts off with a error Code F7 message.


Assuming yours is a model KHMS2050SSS0, here is what the technical sheet says about the F7 error code:

1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
2. After 40 seconds, check to see whether this solves the problem.
3. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
4. Check cooling fan operation
5. Check the magnetron.
6. Check P65 connection on the relay control board.
7. Check the P56/P66 connection between relay board and relay control board.
8. Check wiring to the 1200W inverter and control system. See “Checking Inverters.”
9. Check operation of all interlock switches.
10. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
11. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
12. Check voltage at 4903-1 on relay board. If it is 120, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
13. Replace inverter.
14. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
15. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
16. If problem persists, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
17. Replace relay control board.
18. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
19. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
20. If problem persists, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
21. Check for reversed plug connection on controls or loose wiring.
22. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
23. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.

(This troubleshooting guide presumes one does not know how to test electronic components. That's why they say to replace and part and check it again.)

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

If yours is a different model number, please reply back.

Microwave Fan won't shut off, no display


Depending on which brand you have I would think that the Thermal switch on top of the magnetron or one of the door switches has probably given up the ghost. However, if the display does not come on you probably have a micro or Psu fault on the display panel. Not to be attempted if you are not familiar with microwaves or electronics. Please unplug before opening. Good Luck, JUS004

Microwave came on by itself


Yes this is usually caused by the touch assy, but $278 !!!!! Thats kinda steep considering the panel assy is only around 30-60 bucks!!! It will need the touch assy and even possibly the control board, because sometimes the logic IC gets fried and causes "ghost issues" as well.
