Ok we must have broken the button when the door was being put back on...this can be checked with a multi meter...check it for condinuity when the button is pressed if you have condinuity the botton is bad...replace it...if you don't have a multi meter you can take terminals off switch..wrap them with electrical tape and power the oven back on..if light goes out it's the switch...you can also just change the switch..they are inexpencive.

feel free to comment again if you have any other questions.

Microwave won't start


I have the same problem. Is the light still on inside the microwave? Mine is on and the microwave thinks the door is not shut. I took the top off of the microwave and the latch needs to push down on a switch once shut. The latch was reaching the switch, but I think some spring in the door, pushing the latches down, has broken since it reaches the switch when closed but there isn't any downward force to flip the switch.
I am trying to figure out how to repair the latch but if your light is on when you "shut" the door, you may have the same problem.

I have a frigidaire mef352bgwd electric oven- after a power outage the lock engaged (door open) and now blinks continually. Tried shutting off breaker for 30 minutes- no change.


There is a pin that tells the oven the door is open, you need to push it in an hold it. It is pretty stiff, you can't use your bear hand. It will be in the upper left of where the door closes.

Interior light always on Ge advantium 120


I bet by now your microwave is no longer working....did the bottom or top "hook" finally break off? I found that mine had cracked and started coming loose and so when it closed it was no placing enough pressure on the internal safety switch that tells the oven the door is shut. I was able to use a sturdy plastic glue to solve the problem but finally after about 2 years of fixing it I can no longer get it to bond. Now, I'm looking for a new part. Who makes a product this expensive with plastic parts!!?!??!?!? So frustrating.

Using the self cleaning for the oven


look for the door/ light switch (the door would normally have this pushed in),and press and hold it in, tricking the unit into thinking the door is actually closed. press the clean button then, see what happens. it should try to close itself entirely and then press the cancel button, it should return to normal resting position

My husband just figured this out.

- Follow Door removal instruction from the manual.
- There is a screw at the end of the hinge that can be adjusted.
- Adjust the screw to desired height.
- Secure lock nut.
