Resolved Question:

my microwave will not cut on. everything seems normal other than having to lift up on the door to get it to come on. now that doesn't work. I noticed a red button that the door latch is suppost to press when the door is closed, and I thought I took care of that problem. What else could it be?

Is there any other kind of sensor other than that switch and would contact cleaner possibly fix it or do you think the bracket holding it moved back to where the button wont push all the way in when the door closes
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
this is the only other thing that could cause this. its what pushes the switches down. but unless this is broken its probably the switch. thanks Bryan, Part(NNN) NNN-NNNN width=
