This is probably a a bad door switch or door switch mount. Chances are only the fan and light are running when you open it, but better safe than sorry. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure but not the only one. 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 by searching at Yahoo.com (not Google) for this: microwave display safety.txt If you still have a problem, please write back with more detail. Be safe!

I need a user manual for a Sanyo super showerwave 800w microwave. Model no. EM-G204 There aren't any on manuals online. Thanks Luke.

You can just type "EM-" (without quotes) in the search box at the Sanyo (Panasonic) support site here.

Check a few of the first results to see if they're close enough to help you.

If not, contact them via that page for more help.

How do i unlock the control key pad on a sanyo super showerwave

Try holding down the Stop button for approximately 5-10 seconds. This is the industry standard for locking and unlocking microwaves, although your Sanyo may vary. Please let me know if this helps!

MIcrowave runs with the door open also

your door switch is mis-adjusted,furthermore the other safety switch on the door should have blown the power fuse in the unit,because by design for safety it produces a short circuit if door opens under operation,so if door was taken off and replaced it was not adjusted properly
