I would replace the door switches and set up the door gap to 1/8" just enough to alow for a little play.
Setting the door square is acheived by slackening the lower door hinge and re tightening it when the door is square.
Hope that helps.

You likely have a failed bottom door switch, or that switch's mount is loose, misaligned, or broken.

The service manual will help you with disassembly, etc. It is here.

Frigidaire microwave won't start when door is closed. It looks like the door does not latch properly. It worked 20 minutes ago and last night. How do you troubleshoot and/or fix the switches.


Hello Scott Noble - If I was in your position, I personally will recommend consulting a certified technician first for an accurate diagnosis. Depending on what part(s) is damaged from the door, the microwave could possibly have faulty switches, door switches, or latch which only a professional can repair.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

If it doesn't would suspect you have a problem with your control board.

We regularly repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service.

It could be one of several things. A defective diode, triode, high-voltage capacitor, or even a faulty magnetron. Find your appliance model number, go to, http://www.apwagner.com and put your number in the model search. They should have breakdowns of many most current models. This way you can know what is what and what to look for. Good luck
