How old is the oven? Did this problem just start? If this is an older oven, and it started having this problem recently, it sounds like the door is bent slightly. Enough to keep the light on. Anyone put weight on the open door, (or as I saw once, someone trip and land on an open dishwasher door, which didn't shut properly afterwards) You can get a piece of paper, put it at the top corner of the door opening, try pulling it out. Try this all around the opening, you should be able to tell where it doesn't close properly. U might be able to 'tweek' it, by trying to bend it to close tighter at the largest gap, BUT this could make it worse, or if it has a glass panel, u might break it. So, tweek at your own risk. countrycurt0

Door won't stay shut, microwave will not start


Contact the maker or Google the model number for "parts"

That part likely will require the unit to be taken apart to replace it.

Door wont shut and the light stays on


Since this is a new install, check around the perimeter of the oven door and see if it is closing all the way flat against the surface. The hinge could have partially popped out and needs to be reset. Can you tell if the oven door is popped out at the top portion of the oven door or the lower portion of the door?

Waiting to hear from you,
