Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

un plug the oven, un screw the screws and remove the cover, look behind the door where it closes and you will see a micro switch, and two wirers, note where the wires and screw is located and remove them. get a replacement switch NOTE!! make certain that it is the same type of switch ie. normaly open or nomaly closed. carry the switch you to get the replacement. replace the switch and the wires. if you want to verifry that the switch is defective you can have it tested when you go to the spares store to obtain the new one.

The most likely problem is the magnetron. Check your warranty in owners manual, I believe you have five year warranty on magnetron.

Hi,It is most likely the magnetron and diode that has to be replaced. This job should be done by a tech, High voltage. Magnetron's normally have a five year warranty, check your owners manual.

It sounds like you may have an intermittent door switch or loose door switch mount.
Does it work differently when you wiggle the door?
