Question about Microwave Ovens
How do I go about fixing a bad door switch? From what I've read on this website, it appears as though thagt is my problem. I have a Whirlpool MH1140Xm above the range model and would hate to have to buy a new one if this is something that can be easily fixed on my own or by someone else. Thanks!
Here are lniks you need:
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.
