8-year old microwave model plmv168cc1 is stuck with light on.

Resolved Question:

8-year old microwave model plmv168cc1 is stuck with light on. when door closes the fan comes on but the turntable doesn't rotate. Leaving door open is only way to stop from running, but the light is on. Rebooted by turning circuit breaker off and on and seems to work for while, then starts sticking with light on and fan on after a few uses. Any suggestions?

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today. lets get started.


this means one of your door switches has failed, its not reccommened that you open the microwave control panel however unless you have extensive knowlege of high voltage systems, microwaves can hold a lethal amount of voltage in the high voltage capicitor even when unplugged, please be safe and call a tech to replace this, thanks Bryan
