Samsung microwave turns on when open door


The switch assembly is somehow staying "closed" satisfying the interlock and enabling it to run.
Disassemble the unit, beware specially of the high voltage capacitor, if you aren't comfortable or competent, buy a new microwave. If you are mechanically inclined, disassemble the unit until the switch assembly is accessible; it will have the door latch attached to it.
The switch is either broken or something? exogenous is keeping it closed. It may have come loose due to the door slamming?.
It's a simple fix. I am certainl you will be successful.

Microwave runs/ is on just by opening the door....turns of when the door is closed


Unplug this machine NOW. If It it runs with the door open, you stand the chance of encountering the microwave radiation. Contact a repair service technician, or replace the unit.

Magic chef microwave runs backwards with door closed and no time set - works normally when time is set and door is closed - any ideas?


Probably a bad door switch or door switch mount. See help file here.

It's normal for a microwave turntable to run either direction at random. That's common in such AC motors.

GE microwave won't turn off


Just checked the GE website. Had the same problem with my 5 year old microwave. GE website says to close and open the door quickly three times. First time I did this it didn't work. Second time I closed the door with some significant force and reopened it more quickly. Worked. Unplugged the microwave, plugged it back in, still fine.

Turntable won't stop


Sounds like a door switch problem or stuck relay contacts on the control PCB. Do the light and fan run too or just the T/T??
