"close door" message

I have changed the door interlock switch but i'm still getting the message. Traced neutral cable from switch to the PCB behind the front facia panel. It looks like one of the components has popped. Could this be the problem and what is the PCB called? Thanks

    will not start as says close door - but door is firmly closed

  • veepers Dec 03, 2008

    My hotpoint wf325 won't work as it says the door is open, even though it is closed. this has happened before. Each time, after the machine has been moved. How can I persuade the machine that the door is in fact closed?

This is a regular fault with these machines im looking at three of them its definatly the PCB nomally you will see a burt out track or something on the corner of the baord im afraid you will need to replace this part if you decide to do this mark all the plugs on the pcb with coulored felt tip pens to avoid putting them on the new board in the wrong place definatly worth repairing exellent machine

Microwave will not operate (cook). F7 error code
appears on the display.

Electrical circuit interruption between L1 and Neutral in
the microwave inverter circuit.

Possible reasons:
1. Check door, hinge and cavity front alignment and adjust
as needed.
2. Check the operation of all interlock switches.
3. Check over temperature protector for the magnatron.
4. Check all Cavity Thermostats for closed circuit.
5. Unplug the oven for at least 40 seconds. If this solves
the problem
A. Check the Cooling Fan for proper operation or
blockage
B. Check the resistance of the magnetron thermostat.
It should be 0 Ohms, replace if necessary.
6. Check that the control cable to the 1100 watt inverter
is properly connected to plug P2 on the display PCB
& Adjust or Reconnect

My electrolux ewf 1030 get err 44 help me pls ?


E44 - It means "Door closure sensing circuit faulty".
Replace the circuit board and restart the diagnostic cycle to check further alarm condition.
When the washing programme is started by pressing the START/PAUSE button, the bi-metal PTC (contacts 3-5 on door interlock device, no.3 on electrical diagram) is powered by the triac (DOOR TY) on the PCB: after 2 - 4 seconds, this closes the switch (5-4) which powers the electrical components of the appliance (only if the door is closed). The door interlock prevents aperture of the door while the appliance is in operation.
Microprocessor recognize closure position by sensing circuit connected to J2-1 on electronic board.
At the end of the washing programme, the PCB disconnects the interlock from the power supply, but the door remains locked for 1 to 2 minutes (PTC cooling time).

It always say F7


HI. This is, essentially, a inverter fault error cofe(F7). This code will indicate that there is an electrical circuit malfunction located at the L1 an neutral junction point on the main inverter board, itself. I will post a quick check point list below to guide you through the necessary troubleshooting that is needed at this time. If all check points below check out ok, simply replace the inverter board.

Check Points:

1. Check door, hinge and cavity front alignment and adjust
as needed.
2. Check the operation of all interlock switches.
3. Check the thermal fuse for the magnetron.
4. Check all Cavity Thermostats for closed circuit.
5. Unplug the oven for at least 40 seconds. If removing power for that length of time solves
the problem:
A. Check the Cooling Fan for proper operation or
blockage
B. Check the resistance of the magnetron thermostat.
It should be 0 Ohms, replace if necessary.
6. Verify that the control cable to the 1100 watt inverter
is properly connected to plug P2 on the display PCB
& Adjust or Reconnect
7. If interlock switches operate correctly, replace 1100W
inverter.
8. If problem persists, replace the main control PCB.

When i try to turn on the microwawe it flashes "door" and will not start. It appears to be sealing normaly


It sounds like the door sensing (primary interlock ) switch is bad. Sometimes, the contacts can get dirty and not close to zero ohms, telling the CPU that the door is closed. It could also be a loose or dirty connector at the switch or a loose ground. Then, possibly a bad control PCB.

however sometimes its just the door interlock..
