Do not run the microwave with the door open. You will be cooked. Sooner or later, if there are enough microwave ovens, (and there are), everything that can go wrong with them will, eventually. There are several interlocking safety systems built into every microwave so that they won't work with the door open. Yours may have failed. I've never come across one, but that doesn't mean it can't happen.
It may only have a fault making the fan and turntable operate, which can sound like it's working with the door open. Either way, get it checked or get a new one.
This assumes that the microwave isn't actually supposed to do what it is doing under normal conditions or current programming. Refer to manual/instructions if unsure.:::Spiceweasel.au

Why does turntable rotate with door open?


The door switch could be stuck in the closed/on position. The electronic circuits could be malfunctioning. When the door is open, I sure hope than the microwaves cooking are not "ON". That could result in a very dangerous situation for you.

MY stop/clear button doesn't stop all the time.


It may be making noise, and the light comes on, and the turntable goes around, but I'll bet it's not actually cooking (although that CAN happen). Try putting a cup of water in the microwave when this happens and see if it gets warm. If it does NOT get warm, then you just have a bad door switch. If it DOES get warm, then you have a stuck relay on the control board, and the control board will have to be replaced.

You probably have a shorted main relay on your control board, which I can repair. Details here.

Turntable turns when door opened


This is usually caused by a defective door switch, or it may be out of aligment. Since there are a few of them a digital meter is required to troubleshoot the problem area. If you have the equipment I well describe how to test them.

Phillips whirlpool microwave turntable not turning


HELLO.

The turntable is the unit in the center of a microwave that you set your food on. It rotates during the microwave cycle, making sure all parts of a dish are properly heated. These are typically made of either hard glass or microwave-safe plastic.

Your microwave turntable may not turn due to any of these problems explained below.



(a)If your turntable is removable (as many are for cleaning purposes), it may have come loose from this turning mechanism.place the turntable properly on the turning mechanism.


(b)If your turntable was previously working and now does not any longer, check the settings on your microwave's LCD display to make sure you haven't accidentally turned off the turntable.
Most microwaves have different settings that the user can select with the press of a button, like a "Defrost" setting or a "Popcorn" setting. Certain microwaves may stop the turntable from turning during certain pre-programmed selection modes. Stop your microwave and don't use a pre-programmed mode. Instead, just specify the time using the number pads and start your microwave to see if your turntable begins to rotate again.


(c)The rotating mechanism on the inside of your microwave that rotates the turntable is actually connected to a small motor on the inside of your microwave's case. If this motor burns out or stops working, the mechanism will stop turning. This is something that needs to be replace.

follow these steps below to replace the faulty motor.

1. Open the microwave door, and carefully remove the turntable tray. Also, remove the frame that the turntable is positioned on. Both the turntable and the frame are not secured in the oven, so removing them is a quick process.

2 .Remove the bottom panel of the microwave. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the number of screws securing the panel varies depending on the manufacturer and specific microwave. Once the bottom panel is loosened, disconnect its wiring harness in order to completely remove the panel.

3. Locate the turntable motor. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor compartment should be positioned below the center of the microwave. Unscrew the motor, disconnect the wires, and remove it from the microwave.

4. Determine the specific part number for the turntable motor so that a correct replacement can be purchased or ordered. Position the new motor into the shaft in the bottom of the microwave. Screw the motor securely into place.

5. Test the microwave to make sure that the turntable motor is operating correctly. The Microwave Wizard website explains that the motor can make noises if it was not positioned evenly in the shaft. Reconnect all of the wires that were detached when removing the old motor.

6. Reinstall the microwave's bottom panel parts, and secure all of the screws in place. Reposition the turntable frame in the bottom of the microwave and place the turntable on top of it. Test the microwave in order to make sure that everything is working correctly.


Thanks.

The door open/close some microswitches. During the cooking process they became greasy and working bad. You must replace them or if you're a skilled man, wash them.
