How do you replace the door switch for the door in the microwave oven?


Take the cover off, the switches should be pretty easy to replace. In the several I've done, they just snap out, unplug, and then snap back in.

Microwave will not run a cook cycle. Touchpad functions until door is opened or start button is pressed. When door is opened display goes dark. When door shuts display lights all characters and then says...


BEFORE DOING ANYTHING DISCONNECT OVEN FROM POWER. I do NOT recommend doing repair by yourself, if you NOT are really very familiar with electric repair, or have at least basic training in electric device repair and maintenance.
"When door is opened display goes dark. When door shuts display lights all characters and then says "touch clock"."
Obviously, by opening door, oven gets disconnected form power line.
This is mostly caused by loose connections on wiring socket, and can be anywhere inside. Check security micro switch on door latch. This switch normally disables only running the oven when door is open, for security reasons. In your case, it seems that opening door disconnects oven from input power. Sometimes the switch is loose, or wires are not firmly pushed in the socket. If the power line wiring is loose, and by opening door looses contact with socket, it can touch metal housing inside, cause short, electric shock, serious even mortal injury and fire. This is dangerous high voltage switch, and to access it one must open oven from the back and take off the cover. I do not recommend doing it by your self.
Rem: Replacement micro switch is couple dollars.

Whirlpool MAX 18 in use since 2003, now opening the door the internal light goes thru multiple on/off cycles, as if some contact or wire in the door is starting to get loose or worn. At this time I can...


Had this kind of problem (and others) related to the fact that the cable from front panel (on door) to the main board won't last forever. Later models don't have this kind of problem as they don't have control panel on the door anymore, for a good reason! For a while, the owen will work then door is closed, but very soon that cable gets more damaged and you have to replace it with a new one (or make a better and longer lasting one yourself).

If I stop regular microwave cooking to check the progress, and then push start to continue, it does not cook. It just stops working. I have video of bacon taking 15 minutes to cook, because it stopped. ...


Sounds like door switch issues. Thinking the only thing you did was open and close the door, not change programing or anything. If you have an issue with a door switch and it doesnt close right after opening and closing the door( when you stir), the unit thinks the door is open so it will not run. Once the bad connection cools down it contracts and reconnects and the unit will work again. Frequently you can find which switch is doing that if you just look at the switches and see if you have any browning inside of the plastic insulators over the wires that push onto the switch terminals. If the connecton is bad it will get hot that will brown the plastic protector

Whirlpool OTR microwave no oven 'fan'


FIRST ,,MICROWAVE OVENS ARE REALLY SAFTY MINDED AND THATS A GOOD THING....THERE ARE USUALLY THREE DOOR SWITHCES NEXT THE KEYBOARD--THE ONE ON TOP AND THE ONE ON BOTTOM ARE PRIMARY AND SECONDARY SWITCHES,,YOUR PROBLEM SOUNDS LIKE ONE OF THESE IS NOT MAKING CONNECTION..YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO PRESS 'DOWN" WITH A LITTLE PRESSURE ON THE DOOR AFTER CLOSING TO SEE IF THE FAN WILL START,,,IF YOU NOTICE --THERE ARE 2 LATCHES(HOOKS) COMING OUT OF THE DOOR,,WHEN THE DOOR IS CLOSED,THOSE LATCHES ARE SPRING LOADED AND MAKE CONTACT ON THOSE SAFTY SWITCHES....THIS IS NOT A CUSTOMER REPAIR--MICRO'S ARE JUST TO DANGEROUS WHEN YOU TAKE THE COVER OFF--IF THIS DOES BRING THE FAN BACK ON--YOU GOT A BAD DOOR SWITCH AND SHOULD BE A REASONABLE REPAIR
THE OTHER SOLUTION STILL WOULD BE A CONNECTION PROBLEM ON THE KEYBOARD ITSELF-THE WIRES JUST PLUG ON THE CIRCUIT BOARD BEHIND THE KEYBOARD---STILL A EASY REPAIR--GOOD LUCK TUNICA

Where is the fuse located


It would be helpful if you could reply back with your brand and model number, but I can give you a good answer without it.

First of all, this won;t be a problem with the fuse. When a microwave's fuse blows, the unit will be dead.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
