Question about Microwave Ovens
Hi.. we were cooking in the oven below our microwave and the a little in the microwave when the entire microwave shut off all power, except the fan kicked on and will not turn off. We let it run for about 5 hours or so and no lights ever came back on or it never shut off. We unplugged it for days, but once we plug it back in the fan kicks on again and there is still no disply power. Any ideas?
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

Hello Derrick Baker - Typically no fan should come on without starting the microwave. There is one exception! For an example, if the microwave becomes too hot from something that is cooking on the stove below the microwave, the fan will come on and will cycle off once the bottom of the microwaves cools back down. If the fan is turning on when the door is closed, more than likely, a door switch as failed. At this point, I recommend connecting with a certified technician to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.
