Intermittent starting. imer will count down and you can hear a clicking. sometimes if you bang the side or slam the door it may operate again. may be a bad switch 11 years old thanks

Usual life span of a microwave is 7 to 10 years. Unless you are going to try to attempt a repair yourself, I would recommend getting a new microwave. You will at least then be covered by a new warranty as well.

You will need to remove microwave to access casing, remove casing and check door micro-switch. The switch activator will need adjusting to enable door interlock to activate.

Microwave power off, but will flicker when door shuts

Please inspect the plastic latches that should actuate the door switches. Sounds like you may have broken one when slamming the door too hard

You must close the door hard or it will not start

The locking mechanism is not closing completely unless you slam the door because the plastic parts don't slide easily after a couple of years. We found that putting a small amount of vegetable oil on the 2 locking hooks in the door will allow the components to slide easily and close properly so the machine will function correctly.

My r-1874 microwave unit will not run unless a small wood handle is put under the door. This has worked in the past but now this little trick does not work. Any idea the part that not working properly

I would say the mount for your bottom or top door switch is loose, misaligned, or broken. And you may have a failed door as well. See my help file on door switches here.

Slamming the door and opening the door while it's cooking instead of hitting the "Stop" pad before opening it both contribute to door switch trouble.

The service manuals covering this model are here and here.

Have to Slam Door to get it to work - Advantium 120

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.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya:
