This is a common problem.

Either the door hinges need to be realigned, or the door switch mounts need to be adjusted. I suspect the latter.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

    Please refer to my file on door switches, and the sources mentioned in it will probably also have new terminals / connectors needed to replace any which are charred or overheated at the ends of the wires.

    See that file at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.t...

    Hope you'll consider this for a FixYa! rating.

    Happy to help!

MY 27 INCH VIKING PROFESSIONAL BUILT IN MICROWAVE OVEN ALLOWS ME TO SET THE TIME, BUT JUST COUNTS DOWN SILENTLY INSTEAD OF MICROWAVING WHEN PUSH START. CAN THIS BE REPAIRED? OR IS THERE A RESET?


Your bottom door switch is probably defective, or its mount is loose, misaligned, or broken.

This is usually caused by opening the door while it's cooking (instead of hitting "stop" first) or slamming the door.

See my help files on safety here, disassembly here, and door switches here.

More questions? Contact me directly here.*

* always include the full model number and FCC ID number from the label on / in your microwave (or a clear photo of the tag)

Panasonic NN-CT585S Microwave Oven - door seal melting on inside - only 2.5 years old. Has anyone else had this fault or just please check where the glass meets the plastic on inside door.


The door seal is called the reflector cover. It stops particles of food from being left in the reflector, the square waveguide that is under the plastic seal.
The only thing that I think can cause that is particles of food or grease/oil sticking to it and melting the plastic. I don't think it is a fault from my experience of working with microwave ovens since 1993 for Panasonic and many other brands.

A GE model wes1450dm1bb microwave cooks and stops,but starts when you open door.The only way to stop it is to unplug it then open door. What could be the problem?


You may have a loose, misaligned, or broken door switch mount, or an intermittent door switch.

Door switch trouble is caused mostly by slamming the door or openng the door while it's cooking instead of hitting the "Stop" pad first.

My help file on door switches is here: http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/doorsw.txt and you can visit my helpp site at http://www.microwavecontrol.com.

You can e-mail me at pupista@gmail.com and include your full model number and FCC ID number from the tag in the cooking cavity.

I'll be happy to help you.

Since it failed just inside the warranty period, I would waste no time in contacting Panasonic to verify the warranty and find an authorized service center to fix it free.

You can find their contact info in your owner's manual or reply back with what country you're in and i can give you a link.

Otherwise, please visit this site and pick out your country, then look for the Support link.

I would say you have an issue with a bad door switch or misalignment of the door switch holder or hinge.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a misaligned door.

It may have been damaged in transit. A loose door may leak microwave energy.

I'd return it to the dealer since it's so new and under warranty.

MICROWAVE TURNS ON WHEN DOOR IS OPENED.


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.

Door switches are most often damaged by opening the door while it's cooking (instead of pressing Stop / Clear first) or food
/ grease debris in the switch.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
