You have a bad secondary interlock (lower door switch) or its mount is damaged or out of alignment.

We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I unplugged my aunt's microwave to clean it, when I plugged it back on the light inside is on and the plate turns and the fan goes, cannot do anything with it, can't cancel or start, only way is...


Likely when you cleaned it, grease mixed with the cleaner you used got between the button panel and the actual button switch behind the panel, making it stick on. Will need the model to determine how to remove the panel to clean underneath...OR, it may dry out and start working normally again.

Lite bulb & fan stopped working but oven works fine.


had the same problem (self induced) and shorted out the oven.  took the control board out and found i had burned the circuit between the connector and high/low light microswitch.  just jumped the circuit with a piece of solder, reinstalled the board and the fan and light started working. it doesn't have a low light setting anymore but who cares, just saved 130 bucks.  not going to tell my wife how i broke it, only how i fixed it. very proud of myself and learned a little bit, mainly unplug the unit before working on it.

Microwave running although not turned on


Thought I had answered this, but this is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or possibly 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 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

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

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

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Microwave won't heat food.


My Whirlpool microwave, over the stove, stopped working when my son used it to heat his food and a heavy sound came out, like something exploded in it. When I check it, there was nothing broke. Everything works fine except that it does not heat. I will appreciate any help
