Frigidaire GLMV168CS1 Microwave - Sensor Error

Our microwave stopped working. Power for clock, lights, and fan is working. However, when we try to microwave something a message appears 'Sensor Error, Close Door.' The door is closed, and we've trying all the troubleshooting tips in the book. Turn off power, reset clock, etc. Nothing appears to be interfering with the door. Is there something else to check? If not something we can repair, can be fixed for less than the cost of a new one? Thanks for any help. Purchased 1/2004, 1000 watts

If you are handy take it apart. Somewhere inside is a small switch that the door activates. Switch might be broken or a small plastic actuator might be broken. What do you have to lose at this point except time?

Microwave has power, but nothing works.


The door switches are more than likely the problem, one or two will need to be replaced, I recommend a professional.

Not heating


If the door sensor thinks the door is ajar, it prevents the microwave from heating as a safety precaution.

I found with my old microwave that tapping on the closed door, right at the latch, with a little bit of force would convince the sensor the door was really closed.

What you are saying the microwave stop work like heating,but but the clock counts down.If it is stop heating then there is a rest on or near the magtrogron.Once it cools down it start back heating.Open and close the door will reset power to the magtrogen{sorry about the spelling].Look for loose connector,or replace the click zon it should have a small red buttom on it.
