Question about Microwave Ovens
Thanks for the possible cause information. I checked per your instructions and found that if I move the door with handle up or down heat turns on - I watched the door handle mechanism making contact with switches. Can you tell me ho do I increase more contact between door handle and switch? I tried to mve the switch assemble but it is screwed tighly with the housing. Thank you.
Found brand & model in your other thread:
> Whirlpool Gold Microwave Model GH7155XHS
Did you see the door switch file at my site I pointed you to?
With the door shut, you gently loosen the door switch mount screw nearest the switch that is not aligned properly.
Then pull back slightly on the door switch mount, and while holding it back, retighten the screw.
The door switch mount is also called the latch board. On the exploded view, it looks like there may only be one screw.
You have to look it over and figure out how to adjust it based on the way it's constructed and which way it needs to go.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
