Turntable Problem Whenever the microwave door is open, the turntable spins. The microwave (Panasonic 1200W) doesn't appear to be working with no digital numbers appearing on the front and no action when I push any of the buttons. Upon opening the door however, the light inside comes on and the turntable continues to run which shows that the problem is with the machine and not the electrical supply.

The problem fixed itself. I suppose it is possible that someone (not me!) dialed in a very long program such as sensor cooking which continued until the last bit of water had evaporated and the sensor detected that its work was done. That still doesn't explain how come one can't abort a process from running but I guess I can live with that until the next inexplicable problem arises. In the meantime, I can use my machine as is so don't require any assistance but thanks for offering.
Best regards

Shuts off after approx 5 - 7 sec. some smoke


If it stops after 7 seconds, it has a problem with the inverter.

If the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will stop the cook cycle.

It may be a loose connection in the wiring between the inverter, magnetron, and/or control board, or maybe one of those components has failed.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

You can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.

Turntable wont stop turning, even when not in use


The turntable is a seperate intenty from the microwave itself, I would presume that the switch that turns off the turntable when the door is opened needs replacement.

Dacor dcm24s.light, fan, and control panel work but turntable and heat do not


Most likely the bottom door switch. Dacor units are built by Sharp and that switch is a very common problem. You'd either need to check the switch with an ohm meter or remove the cover of the switch to see if it's burned inside.

Turntable spinning when door opened/now microwave quit working altogether


.
This problem may have already been dealt with, but others can benefit from an accurate, thoughtful reply to this problem.

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.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

I would say this one was just a bad door switch.

Turntable Problem


If it jumps or moves just a little when you open the door, that is normal. It it actually runs, then you have a problem. Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP button) is the primary cause of door switch failure. You can visit my Web site at _ or e-mail at _ if you'd like more in information on diagnosing and repairing this problem.
