Check three door sensors, especially for two closed state switches.

SOURCE: GEJE2160 Stop Working

It probably blew the main power fuse in side the oven. This may have happen because of a failure in the microwave or a line voltage surge or what ever. Repalce the fuse and see if it work. be sure to unplug it before doing this, If this does not fix it then you have a failure in the oven some were.
good luck

SOURCE: GE JVM1650 Microwave Making Loud Noise

hello Frank. Sorry to tell you that the magnetron is going bad and making that terrible noise. Since the inside of a microwave, even unplugged has up to 2000 residual and deadly volts of electricity I recommend either calling a pro or replacing the unit.

Fridgidaire microwave won't shut off


Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!

I see that you are having difficulties with your Frigidaire microwave not shutting off. This could be a possible issue with your control panel or door switch. I would recommend performing a reset on your microwave and that can help clear out any potential miscommunications. To perform a reset you can flip the household circuit breaker off for roughly ten minutes. If that does not help resolve your issue you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hope this is helpful. -Matt

Why would the turntable stop turning and the unit stop heating?


hi,
there is a micro switch that signals when the door is closed. this tells the machine that it's okay to start the turntable and heating process.. if the micro switch breaks or shorts out then the switch does not send the signal so the machine does not work.

Why does Panasonic nn-sn651 usually work; but sometimes, turntable won't start ?


This is an inverter model so there is no diode or hv capacitor.
You must adt. the door latch switch assembly to make sure that the door hooks make contact with the switches. Common problem is that the assembly is bent and must be perpendicular to the door.If it is bent the switch will not make contact with the door hooks.
Place a dab of lithium grease on the tip of the door hooks to ease closing the door. This is the cause of the bent switch assembly!

The unit will count down, light will come on, the unit will not heat nor will the turn table run. I jumped out the door switch and the unit will run, however it powers downs.. and runs slow... Any ideas??


HELLO.

That the microwave will not heat solution.

1 Make sure the door is closed. If the door is not closed tight, the microwave will not function.Sometimes food will get stuck in the door and prevent the latch from working. Use the paper towel to get the food out, then close the door carefully and listen for the latch to click.

2 Check the power sources. First, make sure the microwave is plugged in; the plug may have shifted or slipped partway out of the socket. If it is plugged in and still does not work, voltage test the outlet the microwave is plugged into. If you are not getting a reading, the breaker is probably blown. Reset the breaker for that outlet in your home's circuit breaker box.

3 Reset the microwave breaker. Take the back cover of the microwave off with a screwdriver. Inside you will find a motor. Most microwave motors have a small red reset button on them. Hit that button. Your microwave should work again if the breaker was the issue.


That the microwave turntable will not run solution.


Needed equipments are:
  • Screwdriver
  • New belt
  • Continuity tester
  • Bearing lube
    • 1 Inspect the turntable base wheels and guides. If they are gummed up with food or
    • other gunk, they will not turn and the turntable will not rotate. Clean as needed.

    • 2 Remove the microwave case by unscrewing the casing screws with your screwdriver. Locate the turntable motor which will be directly beneath the oven floor.

    • 3 Inspect the belt that connects the motor to the rotating table. If the belt is broken, replace it.

    • 4 Touch the probes of a continuity tester to the electrical contacts on the motor. If the tester lights up, the motor windings are good, which means the motor is functional. If there is no light, the motor needs to be replaced.

    • 5 Check the wires leading from the cord to the motor itself. Look for any breaks in the wire, or a wire that has been pulled off of any electrical connection. Any connection that has been compromised can be soldered back into place, but if the cord is damaged at all, it needs to be replaced.

    • 6 Attempt to spin the motor by hand if the continuity is good and the belt is in place. It should spin freely, but if it is difficult or doesn't move at all, you will need to lubricate the bearing. Either apply spray or bearing lube to the motor axles to solve this problem, and allow the motor to spin freely once again.

    • THANKS.

The microwave won't stop.


You probably have a bad door switch or door switch mount. See this file.

Sparp R 930 not heating, turntable not turning


I just repaired mine with the same symptoms. I found that the bottom microswitch on the door (there are 3 switches) was faulty. It started as open, when the door closed, the switch closed (good), but when the door was fully closed the switch was open again. I went to Electronic City with the switch in hand, they found me a duplicate that cost me $2.50. BTW - you must take out the door switch assembly, 3 screws plus wires, in order to work on the switch. Also, put the assembly back in so that the door latches close/open the switches correctly. -jk

Microwave Oven Problem


Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure. It's probably not actually heating with the door open, but better safe than sorry! If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
