Question about Panasonic NN-S264BF 1200 Watts Microwave Oven
Turn table and light stay on when micro wave is not working. Opening the door stops the turn table and light stays on. Close door and light stays on and turntable starts running.Plub must be removed from wall to stop lite and turntable. Start key does not work but all other keys do.
Hey, actually did some playin around with door and lifting it and believe it or not-slamming it several times, and each time it done the problem, then all of a sudden the light went out, and I could push the start (one minute instant button) and it worked...so I guess it would be the sagging of the door, and its actual fit when shut regular...I know it sounds like its not fixed, and it will more than likely eventually stop working, but, my thoughts are I could slam it to death and get out of it what its worth, or have to buy another one anyway....I know this isnt a fix, but I personally couldnt take it apart to tighten the door, maybe I will mess with it some more....Good Luck sorry its not a fix....Sandra

I don't have a solution - but this happened to me just after the interior light failed. Upon replacement of the light, the turn table and light stay on.
The component that controls both is the "main relay" - I've got no idea how to get at it, but it's either that relay or the board controlling the relay.

I would say you have a failing door switch or the mount which holds your door switch is loose or broken. In most designs, it is the upper door switch that will produce these very symptoms when it is intermittent or its mount is broken or loose. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. Slamming the door, damage during shipping or transportation and sloppy manufacturing techniques or materials are the primary causes of trouble with the door switch mounts. I have a text file called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems, and a file called "safety.txt" which is of vital importance. You can find these files via a Yahoo search. In some cases, the problem is a bad connection or a bad relay on the control board. That's something we see from time to time, and we repair those nationwide, but it's usually a door switch. If you still have a problem, please post again. Be safe!
