1st the model number appears to be incomplete. Not an issue at this point but will be if you need parts.
You most likely have an interlock problem with one of the 2 door switches or the door interlock mechanism is broken.
There are 3 safety interlock micro switches activated by the door. One for the light, one for the Magnetron and one for the control panel power. If the problem persists with the Magnetron disconnected. The Magnetron safety interlock micro switch is supposed to blow the fuse if the unit is energized with the door open. Check continuity of your door interlocks. Pat particular attention to the NC (normally closed), C (Common) and NO (Normally Open) contacts.
NC should read to C and when the switch is activated read open at which time the NO contact will read to C.
The fuse is connected directly in series with the monitor switch. If it senses one of the door switches bad it will blow the fuse, this is there as an added safety to make sure the oven will not work without the door closed.
There are usually three and sometimes four door switches just inside and to the left of the control panel that are activated when the door interlocks with them. One of the switches is most likely bad. Typically it is the primary interlock which is on top. It can be checked with an ohmmeter, usually you can see it broken as the plunger will not go down or come up like the others.
You were NO help at all. I asked for a location to have an electric lawnmower repaired in my area. You gave me a source 2500 miles away. Obviously I cannot count on assistance through this site. What happened to REAL PEOPLE who can offer some intelligent reply? If I could repair a lawnmower, why would I need to ask you?
On some front load clothes washers, the door has a safety interlock switch that prevents the washer from operating if the door is not fully closed (or the door / safety interlock switch is not aligned or broken.)
This is not the safety interlock switch. This flat bar keeps shredder paper from backfilling into the cutters. The safety interlock switch is a vertical slot on the body that a tab on the top fits into.
On the model 30200 there is a safety interlock switch actuated by a plastic tab (about 4" down from the top of the front filter cover) on the right side. Assuming that all you did was take off the front cover and clean or replace the filter(s) and the unit was working previously, this should be your answer. If in taking off the cover the switch actuation tab was broken off, you could (carefully) wedge a tab into the slot where the switch resides. This defeats the safety aspect of certifying that the unit isn't running when you remove the cover. The safe work-around is to unplug the unit before you open it for service.
