That's a code to warn you the door is not secure. If it will not close completely try checking to make sure any screws on the door hinges are secure and the door is not loose. Since most don't allow you to check this yourself you may be out of luck. If there isn't a door problem and it closes securely then you probably have a defective contact switch that signals when the door isn't closed and will need professional service.

I would check the door switches with a digital meter, set to ohms, disconnect one wire from switch and test for open and short by pressing door switch, if you hit one that tests the same when pressing and releasing, switch should be replaced.

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

See our file on door switches here.

Sharp carousel convection/grill/microwave maybe R990


Hello :

This happens because of a bad door switch . The plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door .

Check also the turntable . It could be out of it's right place .

WARNING :

1:Don't slam your microwave door because this may cause the fuse to blow and this is the reason of bad door switch problem .
2: A microwave is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock even when it's unplugged , so I recommend you to call a repair technician for help .

please don't forget to rate .

good luck .

Microwave oven screen reads "Door" when I press the start button.


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

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

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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

My microwave is not working and the repair in scheduled for April 3rd. This is not acceptable. Please helop me to find how I get in touch with the department that handles scheduling.


My Panasonic 1300 W Microwave will not turn off. When I open the door after cooking it restarts and when I open the door before cooking it starts. I can stop it by pressing stop/reset before opensing the door after cooking has stopped but if I press this befroe opening the door to put a meal in to start cooking it will turn on by itself. What's causing this and is it worth fixing?

Does not start !


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, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
