Question about Samsung SMH7174BC Microwave Oven
Our Samsung SMH7174 microwave seems to have a slightly loose door latch. Once you set the time and press start, you sometimes have to jiggle the door to get the oven to start. But what really bothers me is that even when the microwave is off, with no time set and not set to cook, jiggling the door sometimes actually turns the stove on. Why would that happen, and how can it be fixed?
THE DOOR HAS A SAFETY SWITCH THAT SHUTS THE UNIT OFF WHEN THE DOOR IS OPENED KEEPING YOU FROM GETTING "ZAPPED WITH RADIATION" ACTUALLY ITS JUST RADIO WAVES, ANYWAY THE JIGGLING OF THE HANDLE TO START IT IS WHATS HAPPENING THERE. IT COMING ON IS JUST A SHORT IN THE SWITCH THAT MAY BE FROM AN ALREADY SET TIME, OR ITS JUST MAKING CONTACT WHERE ITS NOT SUPPOSED TO. ANYWAY YOU NEED A NEW DOOR SWITCH.
