The following is generic to most microwave ovens for the light:

Inside all microwave ovens there are sensor and safety switches that work with the door. There are also some electronics on the controler board or a daughter board that control the light. The fault would most likely be in those areas. Some models have a door switch that is specificaly for the light.

The service tech would start by testing all the sensor and safety switches. If these, the wireing, and the connectors are all okay, he would then verify the operation of the circuits for the light.

Magic chef MCD1611ST microwave, the display lights up, the time and powerlevel can be set, the light works when the door is open but when i hit start everything shuts off. Any suggestions?


There are a lot of possible causes, but I'd look at the door switches first, and the wiring connectors to them. Make sure the contacts on all the switches are opening and closing.

Galanz Microwave Model WP1000AL30 doesn't go on when the item buttons are pushed?


Does microvave button makes sound and when you start push button does the turn table moves.If yes for sound ,and no for turn table then you might have door switch which is either doesent latching or might broke.
open oven (be sure to discharge capacitors).
check its closing properly(the switch)
and use DMM to check resistance that it doesn't show OL

Internal fan came on and is running when microwave is not running


might be sticking relay.

or the magnetron tube is soo hot that it kicks the fan on (but it happens rarely).

check the circuit where the relay connected to blower.BUT be sure microvave capacitors have 5000 volts in them.Short them first other wise forget to open it.

When the microvave in plugged into outlet it makes a buzzing sound but works ok. When the door in opened the noise stops but starts back up when door is closed.


I just had the same problem with my ge spacemaker microwave model number JVM1490bd. I removed the grill on the top of the microwave with two screws on top. There is one screw that holds the front touch pad on, remove the screw and lift up to remove. The damper assembly is on the upper left, my door was sticking and didn't make the limit switch. I moved the door back and forth making the switch a couple times and that solved the problem.

Microwave won't come out of start up mode. Clock flashing 00:00 and interior light on. Just moved house, owned micro for 3 years, lost manual in move. Please help.


could be a broken door hook; defective door microswitch or the microswitch bracket itself. the door just may need adjustment; as many people lift microvave by the bottom of the door; which is a no-no.

I have a GE jvm1790 microwave that when its pluged in, the magnatron fan runs with the interior light is on constantly. I can't start either the microwave or convection. Everything stops when the door is...


The megatron tube is not working. The microwave should turn off when the door is opened for safety. If it is still under warranty, return it. If not, you may consider replacing the unit. I know its expensive, but its just taking up cabinet space tonight.
