Why does Panasonic nn-sn651 usually work; but sometimes, turntable won't start ?


This is an inverter model so there is no diode or hv capacitor.
You must adt. the door latch switch assembly to make sure that the door hooks make contact with the switches. Common problem is that the assembly is bent and must be perpendicular to the door.If it is bent the switch will not make contact with the door hooks.
Place a dab of lithium grease on the tip of the door hooks to ease closing the door. This is the cause of the bent switch assembly!

I have a Russell Hobbs RHM2018 microwave oven with grill and the turntable will not stop going round and the light stays on until I unplug it? Once plugged back in it carries on in the same way? If I


The switch for the turntable does not disengage anymore. Could be a relais, could be an electronic switch. When opening the door, a second switch, in series with the other one, connected to the turntable motor disengages, stopping the motor. The light is switched on, because you opened the microwave. Perhaps you never noticed this, but it is the normal way that should work.

Mbbs 01 thermador micro oven: timer counts down, lights go on, but no heat, no fan and turntable does not turn. is it a fuse?


Key clue is table does not move---All microwaves with a table have a lever switch that is engaged when door closes--only can get at from inside the unit----it prevents the unit from operation if door not closed.

What happens from closing door a lot is the switch with a lever arm can come loose or even if snapped into a plastic holder break out of the holder.

IF this it is not too expensive a repair.

Our Viking VMOS200 just stopped working. The lights and the countdown timer work, but no fan noise and no turntable spin.


it has nothing to do with the magnetron. first you have to fix step one. then you will know if the magnetron is bad. its one or two of the primary switches on the bottom of the switch tower. usually with these mw if you dont press cancel to stop the mw, and you just push the latch to stop it, those wires heat up and cause the microswitches to burn and loose proper contacts.

put a cup of water in the mw. set it to one minute and as its counting down. push on the latch LIGHTLY, as to not fully open the door and you will hear the magnetron kick on and the turn table start to rotate

Fan & Turntable start when door is opened.


sounds like there is a switch that is bad. you can go buy a new MW for about 200$ and in yours if there is a major problem then i would just go buy a new one but might be worth a repair man to come check it out


pleas do not poke around in the microwave as it carries a charge of 5000volts and can kill you even if not plugged in DON'T TOUCH THE WIRES WITH BRAIDS ON THE OUT SIDE if you must get inside of the unit

That would be a bad door switch or door switch mount.

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.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is often under the bottom edge of the switch.

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

If you only need a switch, you can order part # QSW-MA085WRE0 from Tritronics.
