This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SHARP microwave Model no R-957(W)M.Its working well but problem is on any mode, it stops after 59 seconds even if I set it for a minuits or 2 minuits. Please show me the solution. Thank you very much

Timer section is fubar. Reset the electronics to factory defaults and see if that cures the issue. If not, the timer section needs to be replaced.

Frigidaire microwave won t turn off

this is a problem with your programme timer these can be expensive to replace and because of the age you will probably be better buying a complete new unit as you could repair it and you could come across other related problems and could end up spending a fortune sorry i couldnt be any more help

Roper Microwave fan won't shut off

THE FAN AND MICROWAVE TUBE RUN OFF THE ELECTRONIC TIMER. OPENING THE DOOR SHOULD SHUT IT ALL DOWN AND WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR AGAIN YOU SHOULD NEED TO PRESS THE START BUTTON AGAIN. IF NOT, ITS SOUNDS LIKE AN ELECTRONIC RELAY IS LOCKED CLOSED ON THE TIMER BOARD.

I cannot stop the DEMO

Demo Mode The Demo Mode is ideal for learning how to use the microwave oven. When set, functions can be entered without actually turning on the magnetron. The microwave oven light will come on, the fan will run, the countdown will run very quickly in the display, and the turntable will rotate. To Turn On/Off: The microwave oven and Timer must be off. Touch and hold TIMER SET/OFF for 5 seconds until 1 tone sounds. Repeat to turn off.

Re. Viking DMOS200 1100 watts microwave oven does not turn on

I'm guessing that's a VMOS200?

If so, that's a rebranded Sharp R-530ES (as is the Dacor DMO2420S) and its secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or that switch's mount is bad.

See this file on door switches. If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

The Sharp R-530E service manual will aid you in disassembly and it is here.

Sharp Carousel Microwave Model R520-LK timer will run but carousel doesn't turn and food doesn't heat.

I also have the Sharp Carosoul oven, symptoms - fan runs, controls are fine but the turntable stopped turning and it did not heat. It was not the switches, fuse, but in fact a sagging door that misaligned with the door switches. The true cause was a warn top hinge. As a temporary fix, I adjusted the bottom hinge (3 screws underneath), straightened the door, and now it works again.
