Question about Frigidaire FMV156DC Microwave Oven
The handle was touchy on our fmv156dca microwave nad you had to wiggle it to work. I replaced the monitor switch and it did not fix it. I switched the top and bottom relay switches and must have a wire crossed, because now as soon as i plug it in the microwave come on. I tried switching back and still does it. The only time it stops when the bottom relay is unplugged. Help PLEASE!
The orignal problem would have been a loose or misaligned door switch or holder on the lower door switch.
We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.
Page 37 shows the proper wiring and page 34 covers the switch adjustment.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
Instead of replacing the switch mount, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.
I would recommend replace both the upper and lower switch now. You can order a universal type here for $5 each postpaid.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Hello epinvegas - Try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart unit. If it proves to be ineffective, then it sounds like the microwave has a faulty magnetron, wiring failure or control board. Contact a professional to assist with the repairs.
