Why won't my interior microwave light turn off and my microwave won't start?


It sounds to me that your door switches aren't working.Your oven is protected by a couple of switches that engage when you open or close the door.They control a couple of safety features and also your interior light.One of them seems defective.

Kenmore microwave oven 401.80083700 won't start


Most often this is caused by a bad door switch. Basically, the microwave oven thinks the door is still open, even though it is closed.

We have a relatively new (about 6 weeks old) GE OTR microwave--model is JVM1540SP1SS. Yesterday it started "running' even when there isn't any food in there and before we push any buttons. When the...


It sounds like a sticky door switch. There are several switches operated by the door latches to keep the oven from operating with the door open. It's possible someone got a little too rough when closing the door, which can cause misadjustment.

Since the oven is so new it will still be under warranty, though. Why not let GE fix it? You just need to tell them it's not working properly. First call the retailer where you purchased the oven. If they arranged installation they probably also handle service. Otherwise you can contact GE's customer service as instructed in your owner's manual to find out how to handle the repair.

Hi our Haier HMW31AEDS microwave has the following problems. 1. It starts itself as soon as we shut the door. 2. The keypad does not work. 3. The only way to turn it off is to manually pull open the door...


I am 90% sure the running as soon as the door is closed is a bad door switch. This could possible explain all the issues with the unit. I would check that first

When I try to turn on my microwave it will not start and "door" shows up on the screen. The light on the inside is not workin either. This unit is 4 years old and we have already have the light fixed once...


The "door" is telling you the door is not properly closed or a switch or two is not working properly. Start troubleshooting with the door switches. One of them is a monitor and is normally closed and opens when the door is closed. it will blow the fuse if it does not open before the other switches close. Very short time frame.

Microwave fuse mystery


AHD_NZ

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

It works even if I open or close the door.


if thats a microwave.. then the sensor of the closed door is broken.. thats why it worked even when open.. and that is really dangerous...
so.. your best bet would be opening it and find the broken thing that tells the microwave when its closed...

that thing is usually the little secures attach to close the oven..

if its not a microwave, the problem might still be something similar to this..
