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.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

The motor will not work. The interior light comes on, but the turntable does not go around. The cook time counts down, but no cooking occurs.


the turn table motor could have failed, but the counting down will be the monitor switch or a micro switch located behind control panel

Timer descends very quickly


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Microwave runs, stops and counts down, starts again, etc.


It sounds like its over heating or the magnatron or the Hi voltage transformer. if you open it and start it a fan should be cooling off the magnatron if its not then the fan is bad and thats your problem Worse case is that the power transformers drawing too much current and over heating and shutting down the first problem i explained though I've seen a hundred times. BUT BE very carefull as there is hi voltage inside this puppy and I've seen it grab and throw a grown man across the room!!!! if you know nothing about electrical or electronic devices its best that you leave this repair to a pro. Good Luck
