Remove the grill on top and there will be a screw for the control panel. Once the control panel is tipped down you can see the door switches . Adjustment is a combination of the switch bracket and door hinge adjustment, You should have access to a Rf leak detector to inspect the door anytime the hinges or latches are serviced.

DeDietrich oven - "door open" display will not switch off even with door closed - therefore will not advance to the choosen programme


The door switch is adjustable. Getting to it involves taking the cover off to get to access the switch. If adjusting won't solve the error, then a replacement is in order.

My whirlpool combo wall oven microwave RMC305PVS01 wont work. The lcd panel says door and there is no light inside the microwave. Do I pull the microwave change bulb and door switch??


I would start with the switch. Might be an adjustment. Microwaves usually have 2 or 3 door switches mounted to an assenbly. Sometimes these need adjusted. Still need to take control panel off to adjust.

I would like to fix a door switch on wolf MW24


The adjustment does not last, the technician should have replaced the door switch from the beginning to avoid a callback and leaving a bad impression. To trouble shoot you will need a digital meter, if you have one one post back.

Door closes but will not turn on . Have to slam it Model # NN-SD698S Inverter S/N 6810190386


There are micro-switches in the control panel that are out of adjustment or sticking.
The switches have to make contact with the door latches when the door closes.
Adjust the position of your switches.

My sharp carousel r-510 hwf microwave oven is not working. When it started, I lifted the door and it worked while I held it up a little. Now that won't work. Could it just be it needs an adjustment to...


Door catches.

One of the latches may be damaged or misaligned and is not lifting the other latch clear of the housing. Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. When the door levers are in place, the door may be easily adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.



Door switches

If one of the door interlock switches is not switching properly or there is a condensation problem on the sensor control panel, either can cause the turntable/light/oven to come on even though the "Start" button has not been depressed due to the wiring of the switches.
Check for faulty door switches and/or contaminated actuators.
I hope that helps.

The door seems bent so it won't latch properly and the microwave continues to operate after you remove the food.

The closed door doesn't always hit the limit switches


I strongly suggest that you do not attempt to adjust the hinges.

The door switch mounts are either cracked or need to be adjusted.

Door switch mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door.

This may be a little more info that you need and it's from a Sharp service manual, but the general principles apply:

1. Disconnect the power supply cord, and then remove outer case.

2. Open the door and block it open.

3. Discharge high voltage capacitor.

If the door sensing switch, secondary interlock switch and monitor switch do not operate properly due to a misadjustment, the following adjustment should be made.

4. Loosen the two (2) screws holding latch hook to the oven cavity front flange.

5. With door closed, adjust latch hook by moving it back and forth, and up and down. In and out play of the door allowed by the upper and lower position of the latch hook should be less than 0.5mm. The vertical position of the latch hook should be adjusted so that the door sensing switch
and secondary interlock switch are activated with the door closed. The horizontal position of the latch hook should be adjusted so that the plunger of the monitor switch is pressed with the door closed.

6. Secure the screws with washers firmly.

7. Check the operation of all switches. If each switch has not activated with the door closed, loosen screw and adjust the latch hook position.

After adjustment, check the following.

1. In and out play of door remains less than 0.5mm when in the latched position. First check upper position of latch hook, pushing and pulling upper portion of door toward the oven face. Then check lower portion of the latch Figure C-3. Latch Switch Adjustments hook, pushing and pulling upper portion of door toward the oven face. Both results (play in the door) should be less than 0.5mm.

2. The door sensing switch and secondary interlock switch interrupt the circuit before the door can be opened.

3. Monitor switch contacts close when door is opened.

4. Re-install outer case and check for microwave leakage around door with an approved microwave survey meter.
