Question about KitchenAid KEMC308 Electric Double Oven
Hi Reg501. I had the same problem with my microwave door spring as mentioned above and I replaced them. I got the oven back together and in place but now it won't turn cook! When I enter a time it displays "DOOR". It has power, obviously. The door is closed and held tight. The light doesn't come on now when the door is open.
How do I fix this? I am comfortable (and safe) working with electric power. Thanks in advance,
The micorwave oven light does not work and when I push start, the word DOOR shows on the screen and beeps 3 times. The oven will not start.

The clue was that the light in the microwave did not turn on when the door was opened and any attempt to use oven resulted in DOOR error message, even though door was firmly shut and even after both latches were both reset to the normal positions.
In my case the fuse inside the microwave compartment had blown (due to the RHS door switch activating the monitor protection?)
Anyhow the fix was to:
0. Isolate power to the oven
1. 'reset' the door latch, by pulling it forward using a hooked tool
2. remove enough of the Top and RHS metal paneling to be able to access the fuse holder inside the microwave electronics bay (at the right side /back of the microwave oven ). Almost directly below the cartridge fuse in the top control panel bay). I was able to squeeze a hand in between the top bay and the microwave bay to reach the fuse.
3. replacing the fuse using Radio Shack Catalog #: 270-1041 $2.99 for 4 ceramic fuses 20A 250V (was in stock at my local RS :-)
4. reassemble panels/metalwork, restore power and test

One or both of the door mechanisms are not engaging properly.
Check the door and make sure the door switch latches are working properly or are not broken. There will be one on each side.
Also, one or both of the the door switch mechanism in the oven may have sprung backwards. Look through the latch openings (you should see a hook that will catch the hole in the door catch) to see if the latch has sprung backward. If so, you will have to take the unit apart to reset the mechanism. Taking this unit apart to gain access to the door mechanism is quite challenging.
If this has happened, it may also cause fuse(s) to blow. While you have the unit apart, check the fuses. There will be a 15A large cartridge fuse behind the control panel and a smaller 20 A fuse inside the unit where the MW power components are located.
Let me know how things go or if you need additional assistance.

I replaced the fuse as above and the "door" problem persisted. I then replaced the switches on the door latches on both sides and it still does the same thing. What next? How do you get into the control panel to check the 15A fuse?
