Re: sharp carosel R310FK-keeps going

I accidentally broke the upper hock on the door yesterday. It did the same thing - as soon as I close the door, it starts turning and the light stays on. There is a contact switch inside that needs to be activated when you close the door.

I opened up the oven and bypassed the switch. I could use it know but I need to push the clear button before start cooking. I'll have to order a replacement part now.

Good luck.

No heating, no clock, no timer, otherwise fine!

One of your door interlock switches is defective . I would suggest having it repaired by a qualified repair tech in your area.
