Question about Sharp R-1480 Microwave Oven
I have a Sharp R-1480 Over the Range Microwave. There doesn't appear to be anything broken on the door or door latches, but I close the door and turn it on and the time ticks down but the microwave does not actually work. If I push on the door and hold it, I can get it to work. Is there something not making a connection somewhere?
It's probably a broken tab on the dooir switch mount or a screw holding the door switch mounts is loose.
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.
