    I have the same problem. The microwave flashed and blew the circuit breaker. After resetting the curcuit the turn table won't turn the the light and fan buttons seem to start the microwave. I have taken it apart and there is a flash burn spot behind the circuits. Did it fry the control panel?

Unplug the thing, open it up, and carefully take off the pad button controls and anything else with wrong behavior, and wash those things out with dishsoap and deionized water.  It seems like a pad switch has saltwater or sugar in it, or crumbs pressing on it.  The door and main switch often need cleaning out also, though compressed air or cotton swabs (no excess water) will be fine.  Then put it back together, plug it in, and try it.

Why does my whirlpool microwave turntable won't stop turning even when not in use?


There could be a defect in the door latch interface or the control board.

The microwave won't stop.


You probably have a bad door switch or door switch mount. See this file.

Magic Chef MCO 153 UQ heats but doesnt' turn


You can still use it, but must be aware that this is a relatively high power microwave, so food will burn if it isn't turned.

Whirlpool otr microwave


Once i opened up the microwave, I found that some kind of capacitor or something (had two wires going to it) had fell down on top of the fan. I had to rig the plastic mounting bracket and re-attach it to a panel inside. That took care of the rubbing noise. It turned out that some one had unplugged the wire that powered the turntable. That took care of that. it seems to work fine now. Steve

Sharp Microwave R-520L stopped working


My parents had the same problem. It turned out that a switch went bad. When you take the case off, there are 3 switches where the door latches. The bottom switch went bad. It is an Omron D3V-16G-3C25 switch.

Turntable won't stop


Sounds like a door switch problem or stuck relay contacts on the control PCB. Do the light and fan run too or just the T/T??

I have a Whirlpool AMW545 built in microwave oven. The turntable continuosly runs with the door shut when the microwave is not in use. The turntable will stop rotating if the door is opened.


the controller for the turntable is shorted out or welded its contact if its a relay. the door has safety switches that turns off the electrical connection to the turntable and magnetron once you open the door. you can trace the switch that runs the turntable. start from the power supply, goes to the door switch then to the controller before it goes to the turntable motor. i'm sure it has an electrical diagram at the inner wall of the cover.
i hope i was able to help.
