Question about Frigidaire FMV156DC Microwave Oven
Microwave does not work until door slightly raised. Do I need to do anything special to replace safety switches or test them? Is there a high capacity capacitor connected directly to switches that needs to be grounded first or can i just disconnect and remove switches to test with ohmmeter or somesuch?
This may not be the switch its self but its physical position in relation to the door acuator. either the switch needs adjustment or the door actuator or door itself. recommend certifed engineer advise on this problem.
warning: mircowave is a high energy, if doors are not seated correcly then energy may leak past door shielding and cause injury.

Replacement of the
lamp should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service. The lamp is a special size!
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!
this only if you are competent.
But here is a basic method if you are
mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.
The lamp is sat in a housing and its
position is adjacent to the vent holes that it shines through.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity.
Remove the microwave cover. Purchasing a new replacement lamp will be useful as it will give you an idea of what it looks like. Locate the dead lamp remove the lamp and fit the new one. Replace the covers. Plug it back in and try the lamp by opening the door.
Hope this helps.
