If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

The oven door won't open. It happened when it wasn't being used. How do I get the door to open?


If it is a self cleaning oven try running it thru the clean cycle to see if the door will unlock at the end of the cycle.

Roper Microwave fan won't shut off


THE FAN AND MICROWAVE TUBE RUN OFF THE ELECTRONIC TIMER. OPENING THE DOOR SHOULD SHUT IT ALL DOWN AND WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR AGAIN YOU SHOULD NEED TO PRESS THE START BUTTON AGAIN. IF NOT, ITS SOUNDS LIKE AN ELECTRONIC RELAY IS LOCKED CLOSED ON THE TIMER BOARD.

Microwave won't start


I have the same problem. Is the light still on inside the microwave? Mine is on and the microwave thinks the door is not shut. I took the top off of the microwave and the latch needs to push down on a switch once shut. The latch was reaching the switch, but I think some spring in the door, pushing the latches down, has broken since it reaches the switch when closed but there isn't any downward force to flip the switch.
I am trying to figure out how to repair the latch but if your light is on when you "shut" the door, you may have the same problem.

Fan continuously runs, have to leave door open


Check the door switches with digital meter, usually find one bad one. Set meter to ohms and test, some will be normally open and others closed, check with the door open and closed.

Emerson Microwave MW8115SS --


I would suggest you check the door switches inside the microwave oven just below the keypad, rectangular in shape. The switches are normally open or closed, set meter to ohms, unhook lead from one side and test with door open and closed. If readings are the same both ways the switch is defective. "check all switches"

After a brief use, my microwave shut off, said end, and after we removed the item inside, the face of the oven went black. We have tried plugging and unplugging the oven into other outlets, but it still...


I say this a lot on here, but may be bad fuse due to bad connections. The fuse holders these companys use are so cheap they get hot if the unit is run for a long time and the fuse Melts at the end, and goes bad. Possibly something shorted out and blew the fuse, But, it had gotten to the point where it said end so it had completed the cook cycle. So, either over heated fuse, or bad door switch that caused it to blow the fuse.. If another switch goes bad or doesnt act like it should, another one is designed to blow the fuse when the foor is opened as a protection feature.
