This was a huge issue with GE a few years back. They had a series of microwave ovens that would turn themselves on and not turn off until unplugged or the electricity was cut. You need to stop use and disconnect the power from the microwave immediately by any means and research GE's recall process to get a new one or simply throw it away. This is an extreme fire hazard and has started fires before so please get rid of it, whatever you do afterward is up to you.

The microwave keeps cutting out after 2 to 3 minutes and you have to wait 2 minutes for it to come back on again.

Check the internal temperature switches. They are small, round, and metallic in appearance with 2 spade connectors.

My Sharp Micro Convection Model R1870 fan behind the touch panel keeps running for 50 seconds after the microwave turns off,. this is not the vent fan. it also runs for 50 seconds when you turn the...

If the fan seems to run even after the microwave had completed the cycle, then it is possible that the drive to the fan is having a time delay. Also it has to be made sure that the magnetron has been cut OFF power or else it is not a good situation. You will have to remove the control panel and check on the board, check the drive to the fan, since the processor cuts off the fan and magnetron at the same time the fan circuit must be traced. Look to the circuit after identifying the fan wiring and back check using a multimter if you are able to trace. If not take help as this can be harmful in case the microwave works till the fan cuts off. A faulty capacitor on the board can create this time delay.

hi there

Sanyo Microwave Oven EM-D9552SN - cutting out

It may be that the magnetron is running a little hotter with a smaller load: Since fewer microwaves are being absorbed, more are being reflected back.

It may be a bad connection on the control board or a bad relay.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa:

If not, maybe you can keep a microwave-safe container inside with about 1/2 cup of water to "preload" it. Some people do that, especially when making popcorn.
