Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

GE Profile Microwave, model JES2251SJ02, is indicating that the door is open when it physically appears to be closed. This results in a nonfunctional condition although the interior light remains on and the turntable rotates slowly in a counterclockwise direction. By slamming the door very hard the unit will function properly.

The door interlock could be faulty. Your microwave oven will not last very long if you continue slamming the door hard to make it behave.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Panasonic Microwave Turn table rotates when door is open

Found this Panasonic post in the Samsung section!

If it moves just a tiny bit when the door opens and then stops, that's normal.

If it keeps running when the door is open, that's usually due to a bad door switch or broken / loose door switch mount.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: GE microwave interior light bulb replacement.

Your post has two distinct model numbers shown, so it's hard to be precise, but I'll try my best.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. Other models are similar. It's at
http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs!

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there.

There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), too.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

If yours is an Advantium type, the following instructable should help: http://www.instructables.com/id/SZFF4WSF44XYT8X/?comments=all

SOURCE: The turntable keeps rotating when the dooe is open - Panasonic T994SFR

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally 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.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

We have critical safety & disassembly info (including a how-to video) at our site, linked here.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

GE Profile microwave oven PEB7226SFSS quit warming food but appeared to be on/operate with light on/timer counting down. Installed door switches-now the microwave "works" only when the door is open


Sounds like on reassembly you reversed wires to door switch.
switch might have letters C NO NC (common, normally open, normally closed) one wire goes to C common, the other to NC normally closed. Try reversing the wires.
If you use meter measuring continuity meter on C and NO should be high resistance until you press switch.
meter C to NC measures low resistance until you press switch then measures high or infinity (open)

My ge profile microwave model pvm1870sm133 is not working properly. when you open the door the cooling fan turns on


Unplug and cease using this as you are exposing yourself to electro magnetic radiation. The door switch may have failed, you will need to disassemble the front panel to access the switch which is located within one of the holes that he door's hooks insert into and depresses to inform the control board the door is closed and is safe to operate.

If it's heating and shuts down, the thermal fuse may be defective, monitors the temperature of the magnetron, or the magnetron is overheating.
