Question about GE Advantium SCA2000B Microwave Oven
Everything worked on my oven (halogen lights, turn table) except the microwave. An appliance man opened up the front panel and noticed the leads on the top door switch were slightly burnt (brown color under the plastic sleeve but the plastic is not damaged). He did not disconnect anything. He adjusted the position of the switch and everything worked. A week later, same thing happens. The microwave door is hard to open and has been from the start. I have opened the front panel (power is off) and see the upper door switch is not snapped into place and I can't figure the position it needs to be in. It appears to enter the white plastic holder on a 45 deg angle but the white plastic clip does not snap anywhere on the switch.
It is not the same as the lower door switch because the plastic holders are not the same.
How does the switch fit in the socket?
Thank you for your time and consideration.

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
