Question about Sharp R-316FS Microwave Oven
We set timer whether it is timed or preprogramed times, the oven does not start. however, when we push the door open button partially, the unit works. two of the three door switches are released when we do this, and the microwave works.
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount.
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.
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
