Question about Whirlpool RMC275PD Microwave Oven
My Whirlpool Gold built-in microwave model# XNR1677406 won't turn on, it starts to and then says " DOOR" in the timer screen. How to I troubleshoot this problem?
SOURCE: Microwave does not heat
Just had the same experience with the identical model. Removed the cover (a challenge because of the security screws), revealing valuable troubleshooting directions intended for an experienced technician. However, I think the info is well within the reach of a typical DIY person, does not require any dangerous power-on conditions. However, make sure that you discharge the HV capacitor before trouble shooting. In my case, it appears that the HV diode is open, have ordered a replacement on the internet for $3.18, easy to replace. Hope it works. Good luck.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo)
and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

take a small flat edge and pop out the plastic trim on the inside of the door, you will have to pry a bit but it will pop out, be very ccareful as it will break quite easily,,,,, the back of the handle is now accessable
