It could be shutting off because of the heat sensor on the magnatron is over heating because of a bad capacitor or diode or the power transformer its self. This is a call for the service man BUT you know these days a microwave like this cost a couple of hundred bucks maybe a little more too. But it will possibly cost 150 or so if not more to fix the average microwave. If you really like it, then see if you can have it estimated BUT its not for the handy man to try to trouble shoot as theres extremly high voltage in these puppys even when they are not plugged in!! Good luck

Kenmore microwave (2 y/o) will stop soon after you hit start.

A quick test. Switch off power then remove outer cover. Look for the transformer. remove the two wires connected to the primary side. Note, do not toutch anything else. power still sitting on the cap. With those two thin wires disconnected, make sure they are not toutching each other or leaning on the metal frame. Set a program that has been a problem and let it run. If it still stops and does what its not supposed to do, your board needs replacement.

GE microwave won't turn off

Just checked the GE website. Had the same problem with my 5 year old microwave. GE website says to close and open the door quickly three times. First time I did this it didn't work. Second time I closed the door with some significant force and reopened it more quickly. Worked. Unplugged the microwave, plugged it back in, still fine.

Shuts off but everything else works

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.

If it stops after 22 seconds, that means the controller has detected a problem, usually a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

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