Question about Amana ACM1580 Convection Microwave Oven
The microwave/convection systems work fine; however, when the cooking stopd, the light, fan and turntable run continuously. I tried unplugging the oven for a while and when I plugged it in again, the light, fan and turntable went on immediately.
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.

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.
If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.
