LG Microwave won't turn off

Woke up this morning and found it on. Push buttons have no effect. The only way to turn it off is to open the door or unplug it. Are these microwaves worth trying to fix?

Our LG did the same thing - called customer service and they told us the open and slam the door 10 times. It actually worked! It reset the switches somehow.

    I had the same problem with my LG over-the-range microwave oven and this solution really worked. Although, I had to slam the microwave door about 15 or 16 times in a row before the microwave turned off. It's now working again as it should.

I have a Panasonic Microwave Model NN-SD277. How do you access the workings of the door opener button? It is broken so the door won't open.


You have to remove the outer cover, the plastic lift levers are behind the door open button / lever. Caution!, panasonic discontinued a lot of those and getting a replacement part can be hard at times. Dont waste your time trying to glue it. After watching people try to glue or epoxy those cheap plastic parts for so many years. I have to warn folks to not waste your time trying. .It will not hold!!!! Look online and try to find a replacement part somewhere. It will be one of two parts. the door open button you push, or the door open lever that the front button pushes against. If you unplug the unit and remove the outer cover simply look behind the front control panel and when you push the button to open the door you will see where it is supposed to lift to open the door. The broke part is your problem, may be a piece laying in the bottom.

When I woke up this morning, the carousel microwave oven light was on, and won't go off. And, none of the start buttons work. Can set time, power level, other settings, but not start!


Thinkind about it, if you open the door, the light is on and you canset time etc but no start function.
Check/replace the door interlock switches as I think there will be a faulty one or the small internal fuse has blown if it has two fuses.
Hope this helps.

GE Profile Microwave - door wont open


The only mode to service the door lock is the removing the lid. The screws are located in the back side and on the bottom of the oven.
First unplug the main supply !

Door


What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed.

Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

If you reply back to this with your brand and model number, we can steer you toward a part source, and possibly toward exploded view diagrams, etc.

NNP-294 Dead


If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

If you suspect the fuse at all, it's best to replace it.

With the microwave unplugged, if you can easily turn the fuse with your thumb & forefinger while it's in the holder, it has overheated and fatigued and the holder should be replaced.

Simply squeezing the holder's terminals together with pliers is not really a good solution.

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

An intermittent door switch will not make the unit intermittently dead, it will only make it not heat, and depending on the model, it will also likely make the turntable and inside light not come on. But again it depends on the model.

You may need to clean and/or realign the door mechanism or door switch mounts.

This is especially true in case a user opens the door while it's cooking without hitting Stop first or slams the door. Both are big no-nos for a microwave.

The main parts that will kill the power are the fuse, fuse holder, or thermostat or thermal cutout, which are usually located on or above the magnetron and on the top of the cooking cavity.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

My Microwave flickers and buzzes


This problem normaly happens when the door is not closed properly for a long time and flashing and buzzing starts to give user a indication for same. Allthough it is not risky as microwave oven has safty door switches wich does not allow oven to operate while door is open. Take care and close the door properly before you leave kitchen..

Starting by itself


Time for a service call. Should not turn on by itself at any cause. Circuit board is my guess. May be cheaper/easier to get new microwave. My first one lasted about 15 yrs--and the circuit board (touchpad) died. Bought new microwave oven.
