Door error message on microwave whirlpool Gold rmc275pd
This indicates the door is not latching. The simplest fix is if it really isn't closed, and simply pressing on the door does the trick. Not so lucky? Latch mechanism itself may be dirty and not latching. Try cleaning it with standard spray kitchen cleaners and a good scrub, followed by a toweldry. Still no good? There's often an electronic interlock-- a place outside the latch, perhaps along the face of door, which must contact the body of the microwave oven. Again, try cleaning all possible contact areas. No? OK: microwaves are designed not to run without a tight seal to prevent emissions. perhaps the seal itself is damaged. Finally, and most unhappily, and expensively, the electronics module in the combo unit is shot. If the appliance is under warranty you're in like flynn; if it's relatively new but not under warranty, call the Whirlpool service 800 number and very politely but firmly remind them that this is really quite a new unit and certainly their products aren't meant to fail so soon... and surely they have a service bulletin because this can't have just happened to you... This will usually result in (oh happy day!) a free service call or (more common) a deal to sell the part at half price. Better than nothing!

Power cuts off when starting oven or micro
see the diagram attached and fix it. God bless you
- Main control boardIf
your microwave runs for a few seconds and stops, the first thing to
check is the main control board to ensure that a shortage has not
occurred. If the part is defective then it will need to be replaced to
prevent continual shut offs. If this is not the issue, the next step
would be to check for a faulty touchpad.
- Touchpad/Control panelIf
the control board is not the issue and your microwave continues to shut
off after running for only a few seconds, the next thing to check is
your touchpad, which is also known as a control panel. Although uncommon
for this issue, symptoms are usually that the display and some buttons
are working properly; however, when selected some buttons are not
functioning. If this is the case the touchpad will need to be replaced.
