Why microwave starts whenever door is opened ?

The micro-switch is loose. Get inside the oven and look for the micro switch and either adjust or replace it.

Why does my microwave keep running/heating until I open the door? what can i do about it?

Sounds like a problem with the control panel. Further diagnostic testing would be required, however, as there can be other causes.

Light stays on

Possible that the door switch is stuck or that the relay is jammed within. Remove the power and gently tap on the door switch and the relay on the PCB.
If there is no result and if there is no switching of the microwave unless the door is closed , then problem can be due to the control board.

Just quit working

I assume there is no display at all. First make sure there is power to the microwave. Next would be the fuse INSIDE the control section. It needs a 15 Amp slow blow fuse. If that is the problem and you replace it (first disconnect oven!) and the oven works Ok that sould have taken car of your problem. However to do a little test you could, after having replaced the fuse, open and close the door several times. If it blows the fuse again that means that there is a problem with the door switch sequence. I don't know if you want to go this far, but there is one "normally closed" switch that, when closing the door, needs to open before the "normally open" switches make contact. Conversely when opening the door the "NO" switches need to open before the "NC" switch makes.

Hi, quite often this is due to a bad door switch located inside behind the area where the door hooks go into the oven.
Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure.
In some cases, the problem is a bad connection or a bad relay on the control board. That's something we see from time to time, and we repair those nationwide for $32.50, but it's usually a door switch.

It can be fixed......

I suspect the interlock monitor switch in your microwave oven is the culprit. This is one of several switches operated by the door latches. It's designed to blow the fuse if you try to run the microwave with the door open. The switch is probably stuck, or is out of adjustment (which can happen if the oven door gets closed hard), and when you restarted the oven it blew the fuse. It is possible to adjust or replace the switch as necessary, but it might not be worth it. You should have a professional do the repair as there's a chance of microwave leakage if repairs involving the door aren't done properly. Between labor and parts, the repair cost might come close to (or even exceed) the replacement cost for a small oven.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!
