    I tried your solution, but it didn't work. The light still comes on. It almost sounds as if a fan is running, but when I hit the fan button, all three speeds operate independently. I still get no power though.

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.

Fan and light come on when door closed!

Door ailment may be a issue or the brackets that hold the switches maybe old and moving. Or wrong switch in wrong spot..

Mbbs 01 thermador micro oven: timer counts down, lights go on, but no heat, no fan and turntable does not turn. is it a fuse?

Key clue is table does not move---All microwaves with a table have a lever switch that is engaged when door closes--only can get at from inside the unit----it prevents the unit from operation if door not closed.

What happens from closing door a lot is the switch with a lever arm can come loose or even if snapped into a plastic holder break out of the holder.

IF this it is not too expensive a repair.

Samsung model smh7178std, shut the door and the fan and lights come on automatically, if i lift up on the door the fan shuts off but light stays on.

some switches are normally closed "short position" press switch "open" it will be labeled NC on the one side, "stands for normally closed" and others will be NO "stands for normally open" press switch "short" if there is no change in readings when you press switch it is defective.

Turntable won't stop

Sounds like a door switch problem or stuck relay contacts on the control PCB. Do the light and fan run too or just the T/T??

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.
