WILL NOT SHUT OFF, LIGHTS UP, TURNTABLE RUNS, MAKES NOISE, ONLY WAY TO SHUT OFF IS TO PULL PLUG OR OPEN DOOR


This is a classic door switch problem. I fixed a friend's MW a few months ago that had this exact symptom. Got a family member's MW going again last summer for similar (not identical) problem.

In our case, one of the switches was broken (shorted). There are usually a group of similar door switches all mechanically ganged together behind the latch. If the MW has a wiring diagram, you can use it to figure out which switch controls the light, fan and turntable. Check the switch with ohm-meter after you get it out. The switch plunger may have lost it's springiness.

You need to be clever mechanically to figure out how to disassemble for the R&R (remove&replace). Don't break plastic mounting pin or you may have to improvise repair for that too!. It may help to have the service manual for your particular model (worth a google search). The switch is probably relatively inexpensive ($5 or so) and a generic replacement should work fine if it has the same-or-higher voltage and current rating.

I have LG model number LMS1271SS. I bought it 1and half year back from Sears. For the last one month the plate inside the micro wave has stopped revolving. Pls let me know how can I fix it.


The turntable may have a belt that is broken or sliped off, some models may have a motor for this and it may be dead. Most microwaves have a service sheet folded up inside, remove the outer cover and look around. Unplug the MW before going inside. Replace the outer cover before testing your repairs.

Our Viking VMOS200 just stopped working. The lights and the countdown timer work, but no fan noise and no turntable spin.


it has nothing to do with the magnetron. first you have to fix step one. then you will know if the magnetron is bad. its one or two of the primary switches on the bottom of the switch tower. usually with these mw if you dont press cancel to stop the mw, and you just push the latch to stop it, those wires heat up and cause the microswitches to burn and loose proper contacts.

put a cup of water in the mw. set it to one minute and as its counting down. push on the latch LIGHTLY, as to not fully open the door and you will hear the magnetron kick on and the turn table start to rotate

Hello mbz... Since the operation is impeded, the problem is more than the light bulb. This unit has an internal short, and should be under warranty for the first year. Return it. Joe

Neff microwave combination oven


no solution sorry but we also have a Neff mw/combi oven which keeps blowing for no apparent reason, the Neff repair man has looked at it 4 times and practically replaced every component -power module, operating module,relay board, door switches but it`s just gone again! The model is a H5972N0GB/01 and it is approx 3 yrs old, no problem for the first 2 years .Time to write to Neff -is yours the same model?

GE Microwave JE1640 works only when holding the switch


VK, most likely the switch body has become loose and it's out of adjustment. Unfortunately, to gain access to it, you'll have to remove the MW from the cabinet, set it on a suitable work area and disassemble it. Before doing anything like this, please read the following link carefully and ask yourself if you're up to it... http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/safety.html Remove the trim then remove the screws holding the MW. Pull the MW out and rotate slightly to see where it's plugged in and unplug it. Then pull it all the way out. Remove all the aluminum trim from the MW and all the screws holding the cabinet. To remove the cabinet, stand behind the MW and grasp both sides... pull back and up at the same time. Set aside. NOW!!! DISCHARGE THE CAPACITOR AS PER THE INSTRUCTIONS IN THE LINK ABOVE!!! OK, up by the control panel, you'll see the latch/lock assy. (it has 3 brown switches mounted to it). It's held in place by 2 screws, the lower screw is the one you'll be working on. Adjust this by opening and closing the door and watch the action on how it works and make your adjustments as needed. Now, you'll need to test it before reinstalling. Plug it in, BUT DON'T TOUCH ANY WIRING! Now give it a try. If you need to make another adjustment, DISCHARGE THE CAPACITOR AGAIN BEFORE DOING SO!!! Do this every time you plug and unplug! Continue adjusting 'til you get it. Now, there's a chance that one of those switches is about to go bad and the mounting bracket is fine. In this case, those switches are generic... not GE specific. Remove the wiring from the switches and make notes on their respective locations. Remove the switches from the bracket (starting from the top) and label them 1, 2 and 3. Take these to your local appliance parts store and ask for generic replacements, they are cheap... about 5 bucks each. Then replace them in the same order you removed them. And re-test. This will get you fixed, but please be careful working on Microwave ovens. They are dangerous!
