Question about Microwave Ovens
I read your post and found it helpful; however, I have an issue that is not listed. What do you think could have gone wrong given the following:
- When door is closed, push START button and display say DOOR.
All else seems to be functioning well.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
