Possible fault in the door lock assembly where the reset switch is also placed. So if this switch is jammed or the lock has not opened then the door may not close.
So remove power connection and open top lid to look into this section.

Microwave only runs with door open (!?)


"There is some charring around one of the interlock switch terminals"

You have a bad connection. The connector and the switch it goes to should be replaced.

I CANT OPEN MY MICROWAVE


Door catches.

One of the latches has broken off and is not lifting the other latch clear of the housing. Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. When a new door lever is in place, the door may be easily adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.

I have a kenmore moicrowave oven mode 721.63763


Some have found that the door latch and door switch causes this problem. Try holding door closed tighter and see if it goes away. If so, probably adjust the door switch.

Door drops down 1/8' when open. To close need to


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, there is no adjustment. More than likely the door pivot and/or hinges are worn. They can easily be replaced, however. The part numbers are as follows:

Door Pivot - 8184922
Upper Door Hinge - W10114255
Lower Door Hinge - W10114254

You can find these parts at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in the model number and locate items 6, 8, and 13 under the "Door Parts" heading.

If you have questions about this repair, or have a different model number, please post back and let me know so that I may be able to provide better assistance. I hope this helps you.

Fuse breaks when microwave is switched on


you will probably find that the fuse blowing is due to door switch adjustments, most unit have 3 switches 2 on the door catches and one that is crowbar protection. the 2 door catch switches are normally closed with the door open and the crowbar is the opposite. if they do not change at the correct time when closing nthe door the fuse blows

I have a Kenmore model 665.68611891 micro. The door pops open


Per se there is no real adjustment, but the linkage that holds the two nylon hooks on the door in may need to be lubricated with some lithium grease made for nylon or neoprene parts. The sliding neoprene part that holds the hooks in place is not sliding all the way down into position. That part once you take the cover off is right up against the right front hand side of your microwave exactly inline with the two hooks and next to the control panel assembly. Take the cover off and manually opening and closing the door you will see how that part moves up and down to release and secure the door in place. You will be able to see where to apply the lubricant which should be anywhere two or more nylon or neoprene parts rub against one another. Let me know how it goes or if you need more guidance.

The closed door doesn't always hit the limit switches


I strongly suggest that you do not attempt to adjust the hinges.

The door switch mounts are either cracked or need to be adjusted.

Door switch mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door.

This may be a little more info that you need and it's from a Sharp service manual, but the general principles apply:

1. Disconnect the power supply cord, and then remove outer case.

2. Open the door and block it open.

3. Discharge high voltage capacitor.

If the door sensing switch, secondary interlock switch and monitor switch do not operate properly due to a misadjustment, the following adjustment should be made.

4. Loosen the two (2) screws holding latch hook to the oven cavity front flange.

5. With door closed, adjust latch hook by moving it back and forth, and up and down. In and out play of the door allowed by the upper and lower position of the latch hook should be less than 0.5mm. The vertical position of the latch hook should be adjusted so that the door sensing switch
and secondary interlock switch are activated with the door closed. The horizontal position of the latch hook should be adjusted so that the plunger of the monitor switch is pressed with the door closed.

6. Secure the screws with washers firmly.

7. Check the operation of all switches. If each switch has not activated with the door closed, loosen screw and adjust the latch hook position.

After adjustment, check the following.

1. In and out play of door remains less than 0.5mm when in the latched position. First check upper position of latch hook, pushing and pulling upper portion of door toward the oven face. Then check lower portion of the latch Figure C-3. Latch Switch Adjustments hook, pushing and pulling upper portion of door toward the oven face. Both results (play in the door) should be less than 0.5mm.

2. The door sensing switch and secondary interlock switch interrupt the circuit before the door can be opened.

3. Monitor switch contacts close when door is opened.

4. Re-install outer case and check for microwave leakage around door with an approved microwave survey meter.
