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.

SOURCE: I think I have a bad door swtich on a frigidaire microwave

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.

SOURCE: My Frigidaire over the stove microwave not heating food

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.

How to fix loud hum and no heating in Sharp model R-308KW?


Hi,
There could be a variety of reasons why this happens, but the likeliest
reason is the secondary interlock or monitor switch is broken. These are micro switches that tell the microwave that the door is closed. If this switch is broken, then the microwave thinks the door is still open and the carousel table won't turn, and the oven will not heat up.
I replaced an interlock switch last Saturday. The switch was $7.00 and took me an hour.
Ask your local repair person to test the interlock and monitor switches first, then go from there.
Good luck,
Hank

I have a Haier microwave and tonight after heating some food, I went to close the door and upon closing it, the carousel started turning and it won't shut off.


It sounds like one of the door switches has become defective, each must be disconnected on the one side and tested with a digital meter using the ohms scale.

Frigidaire microwave stopped heating


The problem of not heating is most likely the door interlock switch. The 'primary' one goes bad the most often. On some microwaves all the interlock switches are in a cluster and must be replaced together and on other microwaves the switches are individual micro switches.

Sharp Carousel Microwave R-1460A no power, door switch went first


You will want to replace the fuse and door switches. You will not be able to run it without replacing door switches. You do not need a new microwave. Door switches go bad, it has nothing to do with radiation.

I don't hear the fan, the carousel doesn't spin, nothing works but touchpad & light


It sounds like you may have an intermittent door switch or loose door switch mount.

Does it work differently when you wiggle the door?
