IKEA Microwave Issue


I just installed Ikea Nutid over the range microwave and exhaust.

There seems to be a problem with the microwave. When I shut its door normally... its light remains on and the turntable spins (even when it's not timed to heat anything).

When I press hard against the door... the light turns off and turntable stops spinning. Even after this it reverts to on light-on and spinning turntable spontaneously once in a while.

I tried to see if there was anything adjustable that'll sense a closed door properly... but couldn't find any.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I'm not an expert, but we had this problem with a GE microwave - would turn on by itself..turned out to be a microswitch problem. The cost of repair was more than a new microwave, so we bought a new one. I agree with previous post to check your warranty....
