Microwave light stays on and unit won't heat/run


If it's not heating at all, the magnetron is to blame.

My control panel will set for time other functions will work and and light and fan time will reset but will not turn. on noticed that the door sags and the upper prong that keeps it closed is broken off....


due to the fact that micowaves produce extreme amounts of high range rayons the units are constructed with several safety features one of the main ones being twin micro switches built into the door latching. when the door is open it sends a signal to the microwave to stop working so unless both latches are in place and strike the switches the unit will think the door is open and not respont to cook. you will have to have the door latch replaced parts are available form www.kenmore.com as well as ebay and as close as your local reapir shop.

best of luck

No power or lights at all. Fuse is OK, Tested circuit board and power supply on it works. Open TCO??


You can check the TCO- thermal control contact sensor.by using a meter for checking the continuity. If open then replace if not then you can check on the relay trigger, check on the circuit trigger to the relay that must switch the lights,fan and microwave.
See if the door latch switch is contacting because only when the door is latched the switch contacts to give supply to the microwave circuit.
Hope you test on these tips.

Microwave door shut, but interior light is on - micro won't work


Yes. One of your door switches is not working. It could be an alignment issue or a faulty switch. There are actually 3 switches in the door latch area.

Door-activated power switch is loose and/or has a short


Fixed this problem! The door latches were greasy and sticking in the closed position (i.e., pushed down so not latching and engaging fully when the door was closed) and this created the problems described above. Solution was to squirt some Windex into the latch holes to dissolve the grease. The switches popped back into position (must be spring-loaded) and the door closed and latched properly, allowing the oven to function properly. I swabbed out the hole with a q-tip, let it dry for 20 minutes and all is well.

GE XL1800 Micro fan won't shut off after light burned out


The problem appears, at least in part, to the door latch circuitry which cannot be serviced by the owner. If the unit is still in warranty, call GE customer care. If not, replacing the unit is your best bet. I just bought a new GE 1100 watt oven with great features for less than $100 If the door dosen't latch correctly, you could be exposed to dangerous microwave energy.

Advantium 120 Keeps running


I've got this problem also.
The interior light on the oven died. We replaced it. Since replacing it the light stays on and the turn table turns.

Looking at the diagram, the "main relay" is what powers both. My guess is that it's stuck in the "on" position. Solution will be replace the relay.

Long term fix may be bigger relay.

Microwave seems to turn on when door latch is opened


What's happening is you are activating one door switch a little before the other, and that is causing your light, fan, and turntable to come on. The plastic parts are not perfectly rigid, so they flex a little when you press the button, and that causes the lag to be more apparent. Even if you press the door open faster and look really close, you may notice the light, fan, and turntable coming on for a split second. That's perfectly normal. The relay on the control board must also be turned on before it will actually be cooking.
