IF YOU USE THE MICRO WAVE ALOT WHEN YOU COOK SOMETHING THE STEAM FROM THE FOOD BUILDS ON THE INSIDE AND CAUSES THIS PROBLEM. THE HINGES ARE OPEN AREAS WHERE THIS STEAM CAN COLLECT. NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT
IT'S JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT HAPPEN

Hi dschema,

You have a door switch issue. There are three behind the panel. If you can lift and hold the door and it starts one of them is bad for sure. You would be better off replacing all three or have a repair man replace them because a microwave can hold 3000v even unplugged.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Thanks for the approval. Cockroaches gets inside micro oven. How to drive out? Needs help urgently


Put some of the COMBAT roach bait traps around the unit. when they come out and eat it they will die, put them under and around the unit. Buy extra, change them on suggested time intervals posted on the box. Place extra around kitchen to eliminate nests and spray kitchen cabinets too.

Trying to replace handle on door,removed three screws on side of door unable to remove inside panel


Most microwave doors are just clipped together with plastic tabs.To remove the inner door panel you need to carefully pry the plastic frame off the inside with something like a small screwdriver or putty knife. Even being careful you may end up breaking the tabs or frame. Once the inner frame is removed you should be able to get to the handle screws. I'll try to attach a picture of the door breakdown.

Smoke coming from under oven


My advice would be to scrap the oven. Smoke is never a good sign, Even if the smoke is coming from a food scrap or cockroach trapped in the turntable motor, opening up a Microwave oven is extremely dangerous. The oven has high power capacitors inside which when charged, will deliver a dangerous and painful electric shock EVEN IF DISCONNECTED FROM THE WALL POWER POINT. These capacitors will hold their charge for days and they can be lethal. The power supply inside a microwave oven is also capable of supplying more then enough power to KILL !!!!
As the oven is tripping the breaker, replace the oven. It really is not worth attempting to repair one of these appliances unless you have extensive professional training and have access to the correct tools and equipment. Don't mess with it, replace it.

Popping sound coming from my panasonic NNCD997S


The following works better if done in "low light".

Put a cup of water or small bowl in the unit, close the door and turn the microwave on.

If there is anything that you can see in the cooking area, there should be sparking and it is coming from something metal, even a small piece of aluminum foil that was left behind. The thing causing the sparking needs to be removed.

If you hear the noise and it is coming from inside the area of the microwave that you cannot see then you can:

1 - Take it to a repair shop.
2 - Depending upon the cost for repair, consider buying a replacement.

If the noise is inside the machine DO NOT CONTINUE TO USE IT. Get it FIXED OR REPLACED for your own safety.

Good Luck

Nn2555 display weak


In many cases , cockroaches are found to habit within specially when not used and can spoil the main board, panel display and connectors. Remove the front panel and board and confirm and if so you need to wash the board and reset. Also it can be due to failure of the display or drive from the board

Sharp r520kst door won't stay shut


If the door will not stay closed it is the spring inside door, or the small plastic piece that holds the spring which is attached to the $80.00 piece called outer door.
To fix it, it is EASY and you do not have to even take the inside cover all the way off. Just remove the three sides of cover by gently slipping a plastic putty knife around rim to release the clips. Then attach the spring to the small hole below where the plastic piece used to be, which is located in the metal on the glass frame piece, use tweezers, hold the other end of spring as you place spring onto plastic door latch and set into place!
Snap the inside cover back on and YAY! FINI!

Sharp 1200w microwave seems to be tripping lightly (can hear clicking noises)and cause heating to be irregular


Clean the food off the inside top of the microwave Now,Or that noise you are hear will stop along with the microwave. The food gets on the Formica Squire which is how the micro waves heat your food. 1st unplug the Microwave then spray the inside of the unit with something like Fantastic or something strong and use glove so you don't burn you hand,Also if you have a scrub brush use it,And clean all the soap out and raise very well.

MY KITHCENAID MICROWAVE MODEL KHMS155L TURNS ON BY ITSELF,OCCASIONALLY WILL GO TO F2.


Possible fault with the customer touch pad or the controls. Sometimes this is caused by insect secretion - cockroaches- which can make the controller processor board act with such erractic behaviour.
Try to remove the power, remove cover and remove the main controller board and control pad to be washed, cleaned and reset. take care of the strip connection and wires.

Freezer works but frig not cooling


if you were to reach your hand towards the rear inside the fridge area can you feel cold air blowing into the refrigerator side if not this could either be due to the fan inside the freezer area not working or there is a small door that is controled by a thermostat inside the ceiling of your refrigerator this thermostat when it reaches a tempreture that is to warm it opens a small door in the rear that connects to the freezer allowing cold air to come into the refrigerator side when the refrigerator becomes cold enough the thermostat then shuts the door. You could also have a defrost issue inside the freezer area in which u would need to remove the rear panel in the rear of the freezer in order to assure you did not have this issue. If you remove the rear panel and you see any ice build up on the evaporator coil (note this is also where the fan that blows the cold air into your refrigerator is located)you would have a defrost issue. If you remove that rear panel and find any ice build up message me back and il instruct how to fix but first check to assure you have air blowing into the refrigerator side. If you dont then you have to diagnose which is causing the issue either the fan which you could hear if you listened inside of the freezer area or the door itself is not opening due to a malfunction with the thermostat if you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully conlcuded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations Thanks
