SOURCE: Microwave convection heat shuts down

That could be several things, but to me the most likely is that your thermistor is caked with grease - somewhat shorted as opposed to open. By contrast, when the thermistor is open, the classic symptom is that the coolling fan runs more than it should. The other most likely possibilities include the damper motor or switch or control panel. You should be able to get any needed parts at Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com You can find critical safety & disassembly info in the serice manual or at our Web site. We have the actual service manual for that model on our site at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R930AKAW.pdf (if that URL fails try http://207.234.249.73/mwd/R930AKAW.pdf) Post back if you wish.

Sounds like a loose connection or a failing hood thermostat. That's right behind the control panel on the base plate. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your base model number (without the suffix) here: http://www3.sears.com/

SOURCE: fire help...need a new part or new microwave?

There is a flame sensor whose job it is to cut power if there is a fire. It has probably blown.

It may be called a thermostat, thermal cutout, or thermal fuse. It will look something like the drawings below. (The service info I have on this model is spotty).

But generally, there is one on the floor of the chassis behind the control panel. It should read open on a continuity test.

There will normally be two others, and they will read closed (also called shorted or zero ohms). One is on or near the magnetron and the other is along the top of the cooking cavity.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

NOTE: There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

SOURCE: Dacor DMO24 microwave oven door stuck

What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed. Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

Dacors are made by Sharp, and one of these service manuals below may help you.

Why won't Microwave door stay shut?


We are having the same problem. Seems like latch spring is broken. We can not find any parts for this. Dometic is 3 yrs. old so no warranty. No service for it either. Keystone really took us on this

Amana microwave


Remove the cover from the microwave. Where the door latches are you will find a couple small black switches. The buttons on the switches will be depressed when the door is closed. Check the switches to see if any are burned up or broken. They should have somewhat of a snap feeling when depressed with your fingers. If one is bad the machine will not heat. Replace the switch.

I have a amv6167bds and convection works but no micro


Check the door safety interlock switches ... tiny micro switches found near the latch mech inside the cabinet.

If they are faulty, the oven thinks the door is open and will not turn on the 'heat' in microwave mode.

Thank you for your question @ FixYa.com

I have an amana convection/microwave model acm1580as that needs a lamp replaces. I bought replacement lamp and after practically tearing appliance apart I located burnt out lamp. Now I don,t know how to...


Hi, since you have located the burnt lamp, all you need to do is to unscrew the burnt lamp and replace the new one by screwing it in.....
You only need to unscrew to remove the lamp and if you cannot remove by unscrewing because it is stuck in, then you need the assistance of an electrical tech to help remove with his pliers....

Amana OTR Convection Microwave runs 59 seconds and shuts off


This sounds like either a thermistor or a damper switch/motor problem.
Amana's technical support line is 866-426-2621. This is the commercial side but they should be able to get you in touch with the domestic side.

Sharp 930 AK Convection/Microwave Oven


When you close the oven door the latches operate a couple of interlock switches that control power. It may be that one of the door switches is bad or out of adjustment. It's also possible that one of the door latches is broken so it's not hitting the switch. There should be two door latches. Are they both there? This oven could be fixed by adjusting or replacing the interlock parts as needed. Because of concerns about microwave leakage from an improper door seal, you should have this oven serviced by a professional.

Amana ACE208 doesn't work with a message 'door'


The door latch receiver has a spring action lever (inside) that is made out of plastic and cracks or wears through. You need to remove the cover and remove the two screws holding the door latch receiver. Now you can switch the top and bottom piviot switchs, putting the top one lower and the lower one on top..make sense? you"ll understand when you see it.
