Question about Microwave Ovens
I would presume you know hot to use a VOM too, check the resistance of the wire as you close the door, if it would be too small, then you can test the wiring.
it could have been that the door switches was wired incorrect and once you close the door, the two lines are shorting out.
another odd thing you said is that it turn on with the door open.
that should not be the case because of microwave energy leaking out thru the door.
this door has the safety switch where in it would not or stop running once you accidentally open the door.
if you can trace the diagram which is usually pasted at the inner wall of the cover.
