Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
This is quite a common problem on these newer Maytag and Whirlpool microwaves and unfortunately it means that one of your 3 door switches isn't always making good contact. Now there are 3 door switches for safety reasons which makes it very difficult to test and determine which switch is going bad since the problem is intermittent. Under warranty we just replace all 3 switches to be sure the problem is resolved, so if it's over 1 year old and not under warranty anymore you can either replace all 3 switches or wait until the problem becomes more consistent so that you can test the switches with a multimeter to test which switch is acting up and just replace that faulty switch.
