Microwave is still running when the door is open

I have a panasonic genesis 1350w microwave and it runs still even when the door is open. Is that giving off radiation?

    thanks, i was just worried as i have had this microwave a couple of years and it has never done this before. But what concerns me is that it seems to give off heat inside the microwave when the door is open too..

The cooling fans run for a time after the magnatrons have stopped, The magnatrons are the heating components so I dont think you are in any danger as the microwave doors are double locked so the magnatrons cant run once the door is open

Microwave keeps running with door open


I'd say the door interlock switch has failed, and supplies a connection when it should not. Microwave ovens can be dangerous to anyone poking around inside, even when unplugged, so get a quote from a service tech. You might find that parts+labour is almost as much as a new one.

Microwave radiation being released through an open door is also a hazard, as it is known to cause eye cataracts, so don't get near if the oven does this.

Yes! it is dangerous, microwave leakage is the biggest concern, you need a professional to assess safety and repair viability.

Won't whut off when open door


The microwave running with the door open can be dangerous.

It's most likely the switch in the door stuck in the closed position. Or it has failed/broken in the closed position.

Sometimes the switch is just a button sticking out of the cabinet where the door pushes on it when closed -- sometimes the door latch pushes on a switch inside the latch receiver in the cabinet.

If cleaning around that switch doesn't solve the problem, you should take it to a repair shop.

Panasonic microwave oven nns952wf runs when door is open


yep going through the same thing myself. I found that the OMRON switch V-16G-3C25-M is bad and now I'm trying to find one. I contacter OMRON but they said the switch can only be orded from panasonic so I'm going that route myself. If I have any luck I will write back.

Microwave oven runs when door is open, and does not always run.


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

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

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

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.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know 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:.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

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

Panasonic Microwave Turn table rotates when door is open


Found this Panasonic post in the Samsung section!

If it moves just a tiny bit when the door opens and then stops, that's normal.

If it keeps running when the door is open, that's usually due to a bad door switch or broken / loose door switch mount.

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

Turns on with door open


It's likely that it's only the fan and light coming on when the door is open. But even so, it's not normal, and it should be fixed. It's not a reset issue. It's likely a broken door switch mount caused by a door slam or by inferior material, or a defective door switch caused by opening the door while the oven is cooking instead of hitting the "STOP" key first. You can do a Google search for my text file "doorsw.txt" which will give safety info and help in checking the door switches. Also, the plastic pieces on which the door switches are mounted should be checked, as well as the door alignment. It's usually the upper door switch or mount that causes this, but occasioanlly it's a problem on the control circuit board. Post again if more help is needed.
