Hello,

Unplug the power cord and check for voltage at the outlet. Inspect the cord for any damage or burn marks. Because of all the safety devices in a microwave oven, any one of them could be the cause. You will need to remove the outside shell of the microwave. Unscrew the screws underneath and on the back that hold the shell in place and slide it off. Here's a list of things to check that may be causing this problem.

  • The fuse could be blown -- Remove the fuse with a set of fusepullers. Place it on a paper towel so it doesn't roll away. With your VOM set to RX1, place a probe on each end of the fuse. The reading should be zero. If not, replace the fuse with an identical one.
  • Door switch could be bad -- Locate the door switches and remove the leads. With the VOM on RX1, probe the terminals. The reading should be infinity with the door open and zero with it closed. If not, replace. Check both door switches.
  • Fan motor could be bad -- Locate the fan and remove the leads. With the VOM set to RX1, probe the terminals. If the reading is infinity, then it is bad.

Disconnect the power.
Disconnect the sensor harness from the control.
Measure the sensor resistance (white leads).
The resistance should be 1080 ohms at room temp.
If the sensor is open the resistance is usually over 2900 and you get an F3 message.
If the sensor is shorted the resistance is usually less than 950 ohms and you get an F4 error message.
Also look for damaged harness terminals if not a bad sensor.


Hope this helpout...

What make's a gas oven stay on when it's cut off?


Did it stay on for long after you turned the gas off? Maybe it was just the remainder of the gas running through the oven

I have a whirlpool accubake duo, super capacity 465 and when I try to bake something the oven wont stay on...how do I get the oven to stay on


What do you mean that it wont stay on? Does it turn off and on during cooking? Does it just go off and wont come back on? The oven thermostat regulates the heat in the oven and the oven element and the oven indicator light will turn off and on during cooking. If it stayed on constantly on full oven element power everything would burn.

Oven heating element stays on


If element stays on even with oven turned off you probably have a bad main board. A relay on board is probably stuck on. If it stays on, but at a reduced heat...not getting red hot, it may be from a shorted wire causing 110 volts to get to element.
