Question about Magic Chef Microwave Ovens
The micro wave works fine if I push the door and hold it. As soon as irelease the UP/in preasure on the door the miceowave stops working.
There are a series of switches in the door latch mechanism which are a safety interlock system. If the latch on the door is secure and not broken then it is in the latch mechanism itself. It is possible for the mechanism to come loose and stop the oven from working. The control panel will have to be removed and the mechanism adjusted for proper operation.
Alternately if the door hinges (screw in type) are not aligned properly then it can cause the same symptoms.
I am unable to locate your model in my reference, but there is usually one or two screws behind the grille that hold the control panel on if it is a vent hood style. If it is a cabinet style then the cabinet will have to be opened. Be sure to disconnect power at lease 1/2 hour before opening.
