GE Profile microwave oven PEB7226SFSS quit warming food but appeared to be on/operate with light on/timer counting down. Installed door switches-now the microwave "works" only when the door is open

Sounds like on reassembly you reversed wires to door switch.
switch might have letters C NO NC (common, normally open, normally closed) one wire goes to C common, the other to NC normally closed. Try reversing the wires.
If you use meter measuring continuity meter on C and NO should be high resistance until you press switch.
meter C to NC measures low resistance until you press switch then measures high or infinity (open)

Ken more microwave hood combo model 721.80409400 switch in door will not stay on when completely closed

All microwave ovens have safety switches on the doors to prevent the oven from running with the door open. Many have up to 4 of these standard microswitches. They do go bad, and can be replaced rather easily. Open your oven up, and match the existing switches with new from any electronics supplier. New switches are $2 to $3 each. A microwave technician will want to charge you on the order of $100 to come out to see what the problem is, go back to his office and order switches, and then come out to do the replacement.

You probably loaded the turntable too much. There is a small compartment on the bottom. YOu have to open this to access the motor. Replace the motor.

How do i change the light bulb on a Kenwood Ken GJ/SS25 microwave

The cover has to come off the microwave to access the bulb. There are several screws around the back and sides. Remove these and the cover should lift off, revealing the bulb. For your own safety, make sure that the microwave has been unplugged from the outlet for several hours before attempting this repair.

Need manual

The easiest way to get a manual for free:
Get the brand and model number off your microwave... look around the back and around the door opening for this...then "Google" it. Go online to and enter the make and model number in the search window, and the word "manual"... you should find a link to the owner's manuals..

Download and print it out... it's usually a "pdf" file... you can get adobe reader online for free and you'll be able to read and print your doc. Staple it and put in your files.

Door Won't Close

What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed.

At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

You can probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site. The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts for most non-Sharp models by entering your full model number here.

Amana radar range with convection oven. Model ACO1180AS. Runs for exactly 59 seconds and stops. Push start button and it starts immediately, don't have to wait. Does this on all cycles. Thanks Ken

This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

See the attached sample photo.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya:
