I have a whirlpool MH6140xkb1 mircowave and the top door switch went bad. It says that this switch will work but my switch says the following 16A-1/2 HP-125. Also, it only has one prong on the front this one has two. The original switch was made by yamatake (model v-5230q). Both the top and botom prongs have two wires going to them. One of each appears to be a ground.
ANSWER Hello Mark. On your old switch you will see COM by one of the terminals, and either NC or NO by the other one. Connect the wires from you old switch to the correct terminals on the new switch, according to these markings. Hope this helps.
