Question about Sharp R-216FS Microwave Oven
When i enter time and hit "start" on the microwave the timer starts but the microwave isnt actually working. but when i lightly hit the "door open" button, not enough to relese the levers to open the door but just enough for it to pass the front or the microwave it starts working. Is this a wireing problem that i can personally fix or should i just toss it or take it to a pro?
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.
