Question about GE Microwave Ovens
I have a GE microwave that only runs with the door open, or the latch held in and the door held closed. Interlock, monitor and latch swtiches test OK. There is some charring around one of the interlock switch terminals. With just the door closed, the timer counts down normally, but the oven does not operate.
"There is some charring around one of the interlock switch terminals"
You have a bad connection. The connector and the switch it goes to should be replaced.
