I have to slam my microwave door very hard before it will sense that it is closed. Therefore, the microwave will not start. The light remains on for a few seconds; then turns off and the timer runs down but it will not start cooking. What part is not working? Is it the door latch? What triggers the action? And what can I do to fix it? My microwave is only 18 months old.
ANSWER Hello Winnie. You will need to test the door switch in the unit and locate the bad switch. Once you locate the bad switch, you will need to replace the door switch. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
