  • At 14 years old, you have gotten way past the expected life of 9 years. However, the fixes may be pretty easy. The microwave sounds like it may just need a new door switch. What is the oven doing?
  • May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information?

Thank you! What is the oven doing?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just a fan is running and it is blowing cold air and not heating.

It worked Friday evening and today it doesn't?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

So the fan for the oven runs all the time or the microwave?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Only when it is turned on for use.
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

Okay, is it the fan in the microwave or the cooling fan on the oven that is running? What does it do when you try to start a baking cycle?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
only when they are turned on. The oven does nothing but the fan runs and blows out cool air.
