The door latch must have broken in side which had stucked the door does not allow to open. Please arrange to call service engineer from the maufacturer's service center to fix the problem as proper alignment of the latches is must for safety measures.

Microwave oven will not start but the light stays on even when door is open.


One of the micro switches in the door is stuck ( faulty ) there are normally 3 switches so after removing the lid open and close the door and you will see the door latches pressing in the button of the micro switch and one of them would indicate that one of the switches is not in line with the latch to press the button in or one of the micro switches has melted inside cosign the switch to release normally open or normally closed, you need a multimeter to test the switches in that case

It is micro switch when you close the door, the door latch push in a button on the micro switch take lid off open and close the door and see if you can spot a button not popping out properly or the latch not in line with the switch

Every time I open the door to the microwave, it goes on automatically. Even if I press the button on the door, the microwave goes on. Should I just buy a new one, or is it an easy fix?


most likely the door latch assembly and or the door switch has failed... there are approx. 3 micro switches located where the door closes... these switches all operate items such as the cooling fan,timer, clock assembly etc... sounds like one of these micr switches have failed and will require getting inside to exam with a meter and check contuinity on close and open when switch is open...good luck to you...

Microwave shuts off by itself


The microwave has a safety door switches (2-3 micro switches)
The door mechanism should hit these micro switches. If you can open the machine, you can see that these micro switch has a holder that you can adjust and tighten to make sure that the hook of the door should activate them.

You are decribing a typical Door Safety Switch problem. The Door Safety Switches has Failed.The Door Safety Switch is designed to shut down the Micro in the event the Micro is still cooking when the door is being opened. The first "Click" of the switch cuts off the "Cook". If it does not cut off the "Cook", the second "Click" blows the power. Otherwise it would "Cook" with the door open, and I need not to tell you how DANGEROUS that could be. It first Tripped the Circuit Breaker which supplies power to the Microwave. After Re-Setting the Breaker the same thing happened except this time the Micro is DEAD- not even a light working. Yes, there is a line FUSE inside the Micro. You however need to address the Door Switch SHORT before replacing the fuse. If not, it will just Blow The Fuse Again, and Again, until the Short is corrected.
Call around, ask How much to replace a Door Safety Switch.
Good Luck!
