Yes, the interlock switches are all replaceable and can be purchased and replaced individualy they can be specific, so make sure to order the correct parts(model and brand specific).Remove the fastening screws that hold the case to the unit and then you will be able to locate the switches easily, there is usually 2 or more switches per unit.

Good luck !

Since that the brand and model number of your oven was not provided, I could say that your interlock switches could be replaceable just like with other microwave ovens.

Please check the link below and it might give you additional info:

Hope this helps and have a great day!

Magic chef microwave turns off after about 3 minutes then it just resets again after about 5 minutes

  1. Interlock switch If your microwave is turning itself on, the first thing to check is the interlock switch. This is usually the first thing to malfunction that could cause this issue. If the interlock switch is bad then it will need to be replaced.
  2. Main control board If your microwave is turning itself on and the interlock switch is still working, the probable cause is the main control board. If the control board is defective it will need to be replaced.

    Fuse


    The Interlock Monitor Switch is an added
    safety check on the Primary and
    Secondary Interlock Switches. If the
    Primary and Secondary Interlock Switches
    allow the oven to operate with the door
    open, the Monitor Switch will blow the
    fuse.

    You can get more information about adjuting the interlock switch from this link

    sections 7-11 thru 7-12 discuss the door interlock adjustment that will cause the 20A fuse to blow if it isn't set up right. I hope this helps you...
