Check the door latch switch inside the oven. The 4 switches where the door hooks latch on to when the door is closed has to engage with the door hooks to tell the oven that the door is closed. loosen the 2 phillip screws that holds the switch assembly and slide it to adj. and ensure that the switches close when the door is closed.
Sometimes the switches go bad and cannot make contact and must be replaced. If you see that the connectors on the switch is discolored or overheated replace the switch, it is bad.

Microwave does not work


Need more information, like brand and model number. Also, does the inside cavity light go out when you close the door? If not, your problem is probably a bad door switch. If it DOES go out, but the microwave doesn't do anything when you press START, then you may have a bad keypad, control board, or it may still be a bad door switch (a different door switch - there are 3 or 4 door switches in most (all?) microwave ovens). Probably need to have a professional microwave repairman look at it.

Frigidare microwave turns on when the door is opened


<- With a full model number from the tag on or in the oven, I may have been able to give you specific help.

Without that essential information, I can only give more general advice.

I would ask for additional information, but FixYa no longer notifies us experts when such inquiries have been answered.

If you're getting an F7 code in the display, it would have a shorted cook relay, and I repair those circuit board all the time.

If it's not cooking, but just the inside light, turntable and fan are on when you open the door, you may have a bad door switch or other relay on the board.

Microwave door shut, but interior light is on - micro won't work


Yes. One of your door switches is not working. It could be an alignment issue or a faulty switch. There are actually 3 switches in the door latch area.

Fuse breaks when microwave is switched on


you will probably find that the fuse blowing is due to door switch adjustments, most unit have 3 switches 2 on the door catches and one that is crowbar protection. the 2 door catch switches are normally closed with the door open and the crowbar is the opposite. if they do not change at the correct time when closing nthe door the fuse blows

Frigidare microwave fmv156dcf:Timer and light work but no heat,


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

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.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" (wiring diagram) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Wasn't heating food ... Now won't turn on.


We have critical safety information, door switch information, and disassembly information at our site. You can access it through our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk The purpose of the middle "monitor" door switch is to blow the fuse if the upper or lower switch gets activated with the door open. So you'll also need a fuse now, certainly. You may have originally just had a bad door switch, but there also may be a problem in the high voltage section. Most typically a bad connection at the magnetron or a bad magnetron. You can find exploded views of the microwave and affordably order parts here http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Or you can order parts from Sears via http://www3.sears.com
