''door'' error on display panel - whirlpool oven/microwave

Whirlpool Built-in Oven & Microwave combination double oven. The model # is RM280PXAQ with an integrated microwave & oven control panel. Mfg date 1993.

Set oven to 350, everything normal...temp climbed up to 200 and then, spontaneously, oven BEEP and error message pops up and says ''door'' and nothing else.

Turn off, try to turn on again...same ''door'' error, immediately. It's almost like the oven has shut down.

The microwave is working without problems.

The door is not ajar, there's nothing obstructing the door and there is nothing unusual about the way the door opens and closes.

Feels like something in the electronics. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the reply - somehow, miraculously, the unit started working again.

    Under the same heading as "jiggle the handle" I put the thing on "Clean" cycle for about 30 seconds then shut it off. Turned it on again normally, it stayed on for 10 seconds, then shut down with "End" message. Tried to turn it on again...and it has been working normally ever since.

    So - there is probably a part that is at the end of its life. Is this an appliance-repair-guy thing? Anything to do now, before it fails at an inopportune time? It is 17 years old after all.

Hi, at this point it seems the micro switch on the door mechanism has failed, or failing. unfortunatley this is not any easy task that I can explain on this post.

    Due to the age, it may be better to contact a local appliance parts store to see if parts are still available, then decide if it is worth repairing or replacing.

Error E7 : F1 GMC275PDs07. Microwave works normally but will not heat. Magnetron changed out and still will not heat.


If your microwave is a 220 then reset the breaker by turning it off for 10 seconds and then back on. Then check it. Since you replaced the magnetron, the signal to the mag is interrupted. Did you replace the control panel? If so, then look to see if it is wired back in order. Does the fan operate when you open and close door? If not, then check door switch.

Member Discussion on Whirlpool GMC305PRS01 Microwave Oven

Whirlpool Wall oven/microwave combo unit Door message
Does anyone know where the 15 amp fuse is? I replaced the 20amp fuse and it worked for a minute or two and then I opened the door and I blew my circuit breaker. I reset my circuit breaker, replaced the 20 amp fuse and now all I get is the Door message. I also noticed that it fused the outside switch on the right side of the door so I had to open the switch up and un-fuse it. This is for a whirlpool GMC305PRS01 Wall Oven/microwave combo unit.

Also if anyone could tell me the correct position the wire is supposed to be hooked up on the switches? I had someone help me take the switch out and they unhooked the wires and now we aren't sure how they are supposed to be hooked up. My light on the microwave doesn't work either. Is it possible the bulb blew when the fuse blew?

Whirlpool Double oven - control panel stopped working


Atlanta...sounds like you may have a power supply problem or the panel is bad. Cut the power, open the unit up and see if there is a fuse in there or a reset. No good? Then replace the circuit board. They just, well, die sometime. Happened to my microwave. Some units may be available remanufactured. Look around on the web.
