One of the door interlock switches are stuck. this is the latch mechanism the the door locks into. This is usually accessed behind the control panel, you may have to remove the outer skin of the microwave first. Be sure to unplug the machine for at least 1/2 hour before doing so and do not touch any exposed wiring connectors and stay well clear of the magnetron and capacitor. Do not operate the microwave with the cover off. At this point you can see the latch mechanism as you open and close the door. There will be several small switches on the interlock assembly and they will all need to be tested electrically (multimeter) to isolate the problem switch

If the magnetron is still operating when off, needless to say , its pretty dangerous. The door lock unit usually has at least 3 microswitches to ensure that the door is closed and ready to operate. 1 of the switches is a safety switch which will cause a dead short if the door is forced open or something goes wrong with the door not closing correctly. This will "blow" the internal fuse in the machine. If the magnetron keeps going, its possible one of these switches have failed or there is an electronic fault causing power to the magnetron in the off position although, I would strongly feel this would be unlikely. These machines are made with a lot of safety devices.

Why does the fan and turn table run when door is opened - ge microwave


I'd be AWFULLY NERVOUS about that - you don't know if the magnetron is also generating microwaves. If it IS, it can give you cataracts and/or blind you.

After closing door micro wave turn table continues to turn and light stays on after you open door and take out food.


The problem is most likely caused by a defective door switch, and should be rectified for safety reasons.

Turntable and Fan won't stop running when door is open.


With the model number, we can offer more specific advice or an estimate.

But since FixYa does not notify us of follow-ups, you will need to post a new help request.

I have a Tappan Model 56-9338-10/04 Microwave. The microwave stays on when you open the door! Can someone help?


  • Don't operate an oven if the door does not close firmly or is bent, warped, or otherwise damaged.
  • Never operate an oven if you have reason to believe it will continue to operate with the door open.
  • As an added safety precaution, don't stand directly against an oven (and don't allow children to do this) for long periods of time while it is operating.
