Samsung Microwave SMH1713 Fan and Light keep running with door closed

2 posts in this topic

I have a Samsung Model SMH1713 Microwave that keeps the fan and light on when you close the door when not cooking.  We are unable to close the door when not using it.  I have checked all the switches for the door, the 2 TCO's behind the keypad (one is normally open and one is normally closed) and the fuse.  Microwave functions normally but when you close the door it acts like it is cooking.  I have verified that it is not cooking and it appears just the light and cooling fan are running.

 

Any ideas?  Magnetron replaced in Feb., 2014.

 

I have search the forum already to no avail.

 

Thanks!

John
