Whirlpool under the hood microwave oven started up by itself. I could not shut it off. None of the controls worked. I could not find the plug which was buried behind a lot of jars in a kitchen cupboard above the microwave. I had to turn off a circuit breaker in the basement in order to get it stopped. If we had not been home, this could have overheated and started a fire. We did not get the microwave repaired because we can not trust it in the future. We replaced it with another brand of microwave.
