Emerson MW8119SB microwave wont stop running with door closed

I just got this at my local Wal-Mart 5 months ago and just yesterday after cooking something in it, after closing the door, it sounds like it's still running! I unplugged it and tried again, but when the door is shut, the motor starts running, but the carousel isn't turning. It still works and everything, but we have to keep the door ajar to keep that from happening.

Any suggestions?

    emersn mw8119sb 1000w microwave. Acts like its running with the light on and the carousel turns when you close the door. It will not heat anything however. I've had it about 5-6 months.

It should have a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

I'd call Emerson at 1-800-695-0098 to find your nearest authorized service center to have it fixed free.

It's probably a bad door switch or door switch mount.

Sounds like you had a component failure during a cook cycle. You need an ohm meter and experience to troubleshoot this problem.

Since the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.

If it is not repaired, the rust will worsen until the cavity is damaged beyond repair.

MW8119SB cooks when door is closed regardless of settings


Clear the cook cycle when you remove the food. Some microwaves pick up where they left off, so you don't have to keep pressing buttons.
