Common Microwave Problems
Microwave is not heating
This type of problem can be caused by a few different items such as failed door switches, main control board, magnetron failure, transformer failure, capacitor failure as well as thermal safety cut offs. Microwaves can be very dangerous as they are high voltage units. It is always recommended to have a trained professional perform the microwave repairs.
Microwave turntable is not working
When the microwave is functioning properly but the turntable motor is not turning this usually indicates that the turntable motor has failed or is not getting supply voltage to the motor. This could be a problem with either the control board or the turntable motor.
Microwave is running when the door is opened
When a microwave starts to run while the door is opened this is almost always a problem with the door latch switches, one or more are stuck making the control board think that the door is closed when it is not. To repair this problem the switches would need to be replaced, again since there is a high voltage capacitor next to the door switches it is not advisable to make a repair attempt without the proper training.
Microwave is not turning on
If the microwave display is blank the first thing you may want to try is plugging in a small appliance such as a hair dryer to check for proper supply voltage. If the hair dryer works then the voltage is normal. If the voltage to the unit is in specification then the usual and most common problem is a thermal fuse or the main bus fuse has shorted.
