Bosch oven won't pre-heat/heat with door closed


Some oven has a door sensor, which prevents heating when door is open, evidently this is faulty, you need a service manual to identify and replace the part, If I find something I will post here.

Hello we have bosch hbc 86 and every time i want to turn on the microwave it suddenly stops, even when im trying to defrost,it starts and then in 3 seconds it turns off, please do you have a solution for...


My HBC 86 showed this behavior, after a fuse for the microwave operations was blown (remove the top cover and you will see it on a board close to the door). It's an 8A, medium speed. There might be different reasons, why the fuse is blown. In my case, the switches that detect whether the oven door is closed or open caused the problem. There are two connected with the microwave, one on the left (a bipolar switch) and another on the right. The switches will cause a short-circuit (and thus a blown fuse), if the left one detects an open door and the right one a closed door - it's an additional security feature. The problem can be caused by a blocked or slowly reacting switch. You might want to clean/replace the switches and/or put the right switch as far as possible away from the door so that it detects a close later (and open earlier). A good thing for testing: the problem occurs without actually starting the microwave.

Oven door lock


Hi John. Try running it through a short clean cycle with the door almost closed. Some models, but not all will recycle this way retracting the locks when the cycle ends. If yours won't try unplugging it overnight and then plugging it back in. At that point the locks may retract, but once again not on all models.

My daughter did something to the door... when you close the door and set the time and start the display reads 'DOOR' as if it isn't closed and it won't start. Thanks for any assistance. Whirlpool...


i have seen this a few times. the m/w portion has seperate fuses and sometimes the cartridge fuse can be blown. it is located inside the top above oven. hard to get to without pulling the unit and getting the top off of unit.
others have had a failure in the microwave control board.

Sharp MW won't shut off


Sounds like it needs a new electronic board or PCB. Although I would consider a new microwave as your microwave is getting on in age and can be a danger to health or dangerous if something blows up.

This would most likely caused by a door switch. It is either not being activated by the door not closing tight enough or the switch itself has failed
