First things first. The top oven lights ONLY come on when the top oven is switched on. Operating the grill DOES NOT turn the lights on. If you wish to see what you are grilling, you have to turn the top oven control knob on to its first position as well as turning the grill on.
Secondly, the grill only works when the door is open. The grill does not work when you shut the door. When you open and shut the door, you should be able to hear the microswitch operating. It is located in the right hand side of the cooker, between the inner and outer panels - you cannot see it. I haven't seen the switch first hand but they normally come with an arm that contacts the door mechanism and the door mechanism operating, causes the arm to move, which causes a button on the switch to move and make the circuit. It has been known for the arm on the microswitch to bend with use so it no longer works correctly.
If you have checked all above and you hear the switch operating, then it could have failed. They are quite common, so if you can't get one from STOVES, try espares or someone like Maplin or RadioSpares.
The get to the microswitch you have to take the oven out of the housing and then take the right hand panel off. You should then be able to see it and check its operation.
All the best
That is a circuitry problem. You can try this following procedure if you can.
--unscrew and open your mouse casing.
--you need a tester (VOM) to test the wiring continuity. If one of the wire is open connection you can replace it with a new USB or PS2 connector. If all the wire is shorted, proceed to the next step.
--Check if the microswitch is ok by testing the pin connection using the tester. Microswich has 3 pins, test only the soldered pins. When you press the switch, it might be shorted. If not, replace it with a new microswitch.
Microswitch and USB/PS2 connector are available in all electronics shops.
Did you disconnect and test the three latch assembly microswitches with a multimeter or continuity tester? The top and bottom switch are normally-open, and the middle switch normally-closed. The lower switch seems to be the one that takes a beating and most often fails. It should be an Omron D3V-16G-3C25 and can be found on eBay for $10, or via an electronic parts supplier.
This indicates a problem with the door latch switch. Try moving the latch around by hand to see if it will reset. If not this is likely the microswitch that control the mechanism. You will need to partially uninstall to acess. Once you acess it check it for continuity. It should have none when latch is open and some when closed. If you need diagrams or illustrations of your model enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com the microswitch is #34 in the diagram
I had the same problem. Turned out to be a microswitch under the lever used to activate it. The microswitch fell from the original position so it wasn't turning on anything. I tried gluing into position but the fumes from the crazy glue messed up the switch and I had to replace the whole rig.
The part is under the control display. You can pry it open from the left side.
First step: You need to make the machine think that the group is in place.
Solution: This can be done by locating the three microswitches that need to be set. Turn machine on/Open the door/insert wastetray&dredgebox (switch One)/with plastic stir stix(noconductive material) active brewer microswitch located in the centre of the back wall/with plastic stir stix(noconductive material) active door microswitch located top right side behind door. All 3 switches need to be actived simutainiously with the power one. When installing the brewer, be sure that the microswitch activator slide on the back of the brew group itself is in the up position.
Note: if you do not know what I was talking about(microswitches) best not to attempt
I dismantled and checked various parts of the dishwasher and everything seemed to be working. I noticed with a phase tester that the pressostat never got any voltage. This led me to check the microswitch on the door which turned out to be broken (never making any connection). This is the microswitch that turns off the dishwasher when someone opens the door.
So an unusual problem - two faults at the same time i.e. clogged and overflowing drain and broken door switch!
I ordered and fitted a new door switch and now the machine is working fine again.
On the bottom of the door there is a part called a door closure kit.It operates like a cam. There are high and low points on the part that aid in the opening and closing of the doors. Do-it yourselfer project.
