Hi,
If you could have provided the make and the model no. of the microwave, it would have been a help but for you the most likely problem in the microwave is a bad secondary interlock switch which is usually located on the bottom part of the door frame.

Please let me know if the provided information has been helpful.
Please rate me if the information provided was able to help you.

Emerson Microwave MW9117W. Timer Counts down and turn table stops, but continues to hum as if microwave is still running. Have to unplug to stop it. Anyone know what problem is? Thanks


Sounds like you have a ''smart board" or door switch problem, try to un plug the product, push all the 'buttons' on the control panel and then plug the product back in, if this does not correct the problem you have a component that has failed.

Why does the fan and turn table run when door is opened - ge microwave


I'd be AWFULLY NERVOUS about that - you don't know if the magnetron is also generating microwaves. If it IS, it can give you cataracts and/or blind you.

Turns On by itself


Replace it. I work in sales for Whirlpool. It sounds like the door switch is either sticking or shorted. Also because your turntable continues to run it sounds like a short. Microwaves are a unit we only recommend an authorized technician to work on due to the microwaves it uses.

The cost of a new one is usually easily half or more the cost of repairing it.

Average service call just to give you an estimate is 80-90$

Microwave runs when the door is open.. stops when you shut it.


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

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

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

You need to trace the power feeding the high voltage transfomer. Because the table doesn't turn, it implies that a door switch or safety interlock is the problem.

Microwave works with the door open


The top door switch is almost certainly defective or loose. Most likely the latter, and possibly due to a loose or broken mount. Chances are that only the fan and light are on, but it's not wise to take chances with microwave energy, whuch can cause burns and fire. One way to possibly test this theory is to pull up gently on the door and see if it stops doing it. But that's not a foolproof test. A broken or loose mount can be caused by inadequate plastic or improper assembly techniques during manufacturing, by slamming the door, or other physical damage. Bad door switches are usually caused by opening the door while it's cooking instead of hitting the STOP KEY first. I have a helpful text file on door switches with safety tips that will help you. You can find it by searching on Yahoo.com (not Google) for microwave safety.txt Good luck and be safe!
