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

Tappan Speedwave 1000 turns on when door is opened

Microwaves do normally 'turn on', in that the light comes on and the fan starts running. If the turntable starts turning and it is emitting microwave energy, then you need to take it for service or replace it. To me, it sounds fine.

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.

My Tappan TMV 151FS (2008) microwave is not working.

You likely have a door switch or mount. See a handy help file on door switches here.

The service manual for the TMV151 model series is here, and the parts manual is here.

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.

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.

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.
