Question about Microwave Ovens
I have a 1988 Amana Microwave and Convection Oven Radar Range Model RMC720. On Sunday, I was using the microwave when, after several minutes, the microwave stopped; but the timer continued until the end. After it had been off for some time, the same thing happened. Since I was reheating pasta in a pyrex glass dish, I decided to use the convection oven. That worked for a few minutes, and then the same thing happened: The timer continued while the cooking process stopped. What do you think is going on, and do you think that this is a problem that can reasonably be repaired? I would like to get it repaired, if possible, because I have looked at the new microwave-convection oven combinations; and I like the one that I have better.
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. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
