I have a problem with our Microwave. It will only run for about 10 to 15 seconds and then shuts off. I was able to change the power level down to 9 and it would run for a minute. After a couple of days this no longer works. The Microwave is about 7 years old

Hello, I'm Ray and would be happy to help you.. The control board behind the touchpad has shorted out. Are you going to do the repairs yourself?

I thought I would if not too difficult. The Microwave is a built in so I don't know if I can.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I think I'll hold off for now. I need to see how I can unplug the unit before I do anything. Thanks.

the built in ones are the harness ones to deal with.. There is a lot of things involve getting it apart.. You would be better off getting a tech to do it.
