    My microwave is powered up but will not run, why?


Detailed Answer

    The door must be shut for the unit to operate.

    If the door is open, the microwave will not run.

    Close the door and try to start the microwave.

    It is possible that the door latch is stuck.

    Try opening and closing the door a few times

    consecutively to see if it releases.


    After doing this, try to operate the unit again.
