There are two switches that are operated by the door prongs as they latch the door closed .. both switches have to be operated to enable the microwave ...you either have something cought in the door seal preventing it from fully closing or one of those switches is out of adjustment .. unfortunatly you have to remove the cabinet to get at the adjustments ... the switches are set so that the door has to be completly closed so there is no RF leakage .. so its a rather critical adjustment .. there is potentially fatal voltage and current inside the microwave so make certain that its not plugged in if you do anything inside ... it would be better to take it to a competent repair person .. that fix should only take a few minutes .. they would have the proper gauges to set it precisely ... if you feel confident that you can do it then you will be able to hear a click as each switch operates as the door is closed .. you should hear two clicks if you shut the door carefully .. loosen the switch that is not operating and move it just slightly until it reliably clicks each time the door is closed .. tighten it there .. make sure the door and its seal are not bent, warped dirty or otherwise damaged ... its a good idea to check for radiation leakage after any microwave fix .. there is a low cost instrument for doing this .. (microwave radiation leakage detecter) ... your repair person would likely have a better one than you can buy .. ...

That would be just a defective secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount.

Door latch


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Open Lever If the microwave door won't open the open lever might be broken. This part can be replaced separately.

Door Spring If the microwave door won't open the door spring may have broken. The door spring is located inside the door and keeps downward pressure on the door hook.

Door Latch If the microwave door won't open the door latch might be broken. The door latch is inside the microwave. The door hook, which is part of the door, engages with the latch to keep the door closed during operation. If the door latch or actuator breaks the door may not open.

Door Hook If the microwave door won't open the door hook might not be releasing properly. The door hook is installed inside the door and normally releases when the door is opened. The hook is made of plastic and will break over time. When this happens it will need to be replaced, it can't be repaired.

Button Spring If the microwave door won't open the button spring might be broken internally. The button spring can be replaced.
Button If the microwave door won't open the button might be broken internally. The button can be replaced.

Handle Actuator If the microwave door won't open the handle actuator might be broken. This is a plastic part which can become brittle over time. This part is connected between the door button and the door latch assembly.

Sharp Convection Microwave won't heat and turntable won't turn.


I typically find it is not door hinge issues but door switch issues, especially with sharp. You may heve a little movenent in the door hinge and that is allowing the door hook to move up and down on the plunger for a door switch that is probably a bit melted due to bad connections. If you check the door switches and look for any browning around the terminals where the wires push onto the switch you will probably find an overheated connectoion. Replace the bad switch and run better wires and better termninals to the new switch and it will probably be fine.

I have a microwave oven over the range ,brand Frigidaire , model CFMV156DC purchased in 2006 and stopped working , even the lights on the front panel are on when I press the start button it happened just a...


I have exactly the same problem. Everything works perfectly even fan, except microwave table won't turn. I just found out what's the problem... The door for some reason is sitting too low now, even though it is not obvious at all. It looks leveled with everything else, but it's not. Set your Microwave to let's say 30 seconds and turn it on. It will not do anything... but you just gently lift the door (while closed of course) few millimeters and your Microwave will start running like new. There is something wrong with those latches on the door, not touching the microswitches inside the Microwave. Doors must be properly closed in order for Microwave to work. This is due to poorly design. I yet have to figure out how to fix that permanently.

The panel push button that opens the door is not working. Doesn't seem to be connected to anything. Door won't open.


I suspect that the lower door latch has broken off. The lower hook is actuated by the push lever and in turn lifts the upper latch that of course is not being lifted.
Disconnect from the supply.
Remove the case from the microwave and you will see how the door latch actuator works. Lift it manually and you can open the door.
Do not try and use the appliance in that condition as it will take out its mains fuse as the door switches and latches for a safety interlock.
Hope this helps.

Microwave turns on and counts down but won't heat up/cook


Ok just figured this out! It is a problem with the alignment on the lower door switch. I took the cabinet off and lifted up on the door switch slightly and voila! It works. You could probably fix this without taking it apart, just lift up on the door ever so slightly. I hope this works for you.
