Question about Microwave Ovens
Yes, t's most likely a broken tab on the top door switch mount.
The quickest way to fix this is is to clean the area where the top switch mounts, hold it in place (like with a toothpick, etc.) and the use hot glue or epoxy to secure it.
Leave it overnight, then remove the toothpick.
Otherwise, you can get a new door switch mount (door hook) from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com
But I usually don't recommend that job to a DIYer because it takes a while and you may end up with a door misalignment that will result in leakage.
