• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

All of a sudden, my microwave will not shut off unless I open the door or unplug it. When Iplug it in with the door closed, it hums and starts heating. When I open the door it stops but starts as soon as I close the door again. I tried setting the timer, and letting it run out a cycle but it only stops the turntable and shuts off the light but continues to heat up the food. HELP!!!!
