Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

F1E4 means that your main power relay board has an internal short. Try to unplug the microwave for 5 minutes and see if the electronics will reset. If the issue comes back, the main power relay board would have to be replaced. I'm not sure how that could have failed replacing the door switches, but weird things happen when servicing an appliance I've found.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
