Microwave oven works while door is open

My parents microwave (Panasonic NN-S740BA) oven seems to be working while the door is open. While the door is open the turntable is going around, the light is on and it makes the same sound as if you were to press in a time and press the START button. Is it possible the microwaves could be on and escaping while this is going on with the door open?

    I have the same problem.

    My new Advantium 120 microwave turntable wobbles badly. As long as I center things on it it seems to work, but that isn't always possible. Is it supposed to wobble? (The turntable for the speedcook and oven doesn't wobble.)

No there are three safety switches that control that the one that lets the magnetron run will blow the fuse if its bad you have a stuck door switch but there are recalls on some microwaves check here http://www.recalls.gov/ and here http://www.sears.com/shc/s/nb_10153_12605_NB_CSrecalls?adCell=AF or go to panasonic to find out other than that you need to replace a door switch let me know if i can be of further assistance

I opened the door of the microwave oven but I could feel hot air


is yours a convection and microwave combo oven? if yes the fan is a cool-down fan to blow cold air over the magnatron tube. Microwaves are designed with a multiple number of safety switches usually 2 or more in the door that the magnatron (the thing that generates microve energy) could never come on with the door open.

Sharp MW won't shut off


Sounds like it needs a new electronic board or PCB. Although I would consider a new microwave as your microwave is getting on in age and can be a danger to health or dangerous if something blows up.

The oven would not start


It doesn't work at all If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: 1)Fuses---- Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it. 2)Door switch--- If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work. please do not forget to rate the solution.thanks.
