Hi my name is ***** ***** You have one of three problems they are in order -

a. A faulty door switch.

b. The cable between the door switch and the main printed circuit board (PCB) is faulty.

c. The PCB is faulty.

First thing I would do is spray some WD40 into the door latch hole, then set up the porgream, press start and finally slam the door - sometimes this works (if so at some stage you will need to replace the door switch)

Hello thank you for replying. I have already tried that didn't work. Door security light just keeps flashing.

OK in that case - do I assume that you dont have a multimeter?
