1. First my convection part of this microwave, the fan started to ding a ling a ling, the convection heats up but does not spread the heat, I'm thinking it's loose like a nut feel off or is loose, as i heard the fan sounds like it was hitting metal like it was loose.

2. My Microwave oven light stays on when door is shut, it did this a while ago, then it went away, so thats weird like a switch is stuck or something..

any help appreciated..

Hi,

Loose or warped blade, warped cover, bad motor.....would have to be investigated.

Motor, blade, nut are all come up as NLA ( NO Longer Available ).

2. My Microwave oven light stays on when door is shut, it did this a while ago, then it went away, so thats weird like a switch is stuck or something..
Door switch, door switch mechanism, door switch key, door switch wiring....would have to be investigated.

Thanks for all of that info!! I see a nut on the end of the fan, and I'm pretty much thought for sure it was that nut coming off loose as it happened fairly early in the life of it..and we just let it go that way..thus the loose sound..so should be a easy fix..i'm pretty sure it's just off..bad lock tight maybe

Is there a parts listing with numbers I can get? and a thing how the micro should come part? I suppose I could just take the cover off and see, but maybe there's a method to make it easier and in order..
