    Pressed "Add :30 Sec" - When 'ready' alarm sounded, turntable continued to turn as oven also continued to heat. Good thing I purchased an extended warranty!

Microwave won't start

I have the same problem. Is the light still on inside the microwave? Mine is on and the microwave thinks the door is not shut. I took the top off of the microwave and the latch needs to push down on a switch once shut. The latch was reaching the switch, but I think some spring in the door, pushing the latches down, has broken since it reaches the switch when closed but there isn't any downward force to flip the switch.
I am trying to figure out how to repair the latch but if your light is on when you "shut" the door, you may have the same problem.

The microwave shut off by itself. Is there an auto shut off? I ask because I was reheating some squash and the microwave shut off. No lights nothing. Sugestions?

Check it after 2 hrs .By repluging it.
If you use microwave alot then it might get too hot,So just try it.
Otherwise give some more detail to me to trouble shoot it.

My daughter put metal in oven it shut off. the oven turns buts shuts off after a few seconds. help

metal cannot absorb the microwaves, the microwaves bounce around inside the oven. Eventually they reflect back to the magnetron, which is the part that produces the microwaves. The magnetron can overheat and be damaged.

Microwave shuts down when hot

Most microwaves have a temp sensor or moisture sensor. Maybe your one has gone faulty or the magnetron itself is causing it to shutdown. Get it checked up.
