SOURCE: GE Over range microwave model

I would check the door switches for a faulty switch. If it were condensation on the control panel. I would think it would have dried out by now unless it has damaged the control board.

Unit starts automatically when door is closed


please review this and fix it. God bless you


  1. Interlock switchIf your microwave is turning itself on, the first thing to check is the interlock switch. This is usually the first thing to malfunction that could cause this issue. If the interlock switch is bad then it will need to be replaced.
  2. Main control boardIf your microwave is turning itself on and the interlock switch is still working, the probable cause is the main control board. If the control board is defective it will need to be replaced.

Microwave making noise all the time if plugged in & door shut


Sounds like a bad control board. Change it or buy another unit.

Samsung model smh7178std, shut the door and the fan and lights come on automatically, if i lift up on the door the fan shuts off but light stays on.


some switches are normally closed "short position" press switch "open" it will be labeled NC on the one side, "stands for normally closed" and others will be NO "stands for normally open" press switch "short" if there is no change in readings when you press switch it is defective.

Our Panasonic NN-S763BF microwave turns on (light goes on, table turns and fan goes on) automatically when we open the door even though the clock is displayed. It works normally when the door is shut....


You have a faulty interlock switch (which the door operates).
This needs to be renewed by a qualified microwave service technician ASAP.
A potential hazard if not fixed immediately!

Sharp 2010 turns itself on, fan runs but does not microwave


The repair or replace decision depends to some extent upon age and repair history.

Microwave turned on by itself and won't shut off


probably the door is misaligned.. try nudging the door up or down / left or right or any possible wiggle combination in the closed position and see if the light doesn't go off.. if it is the door...not sure how to fix it.
