Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

When the unit looks like it's working once you shut the door but it doesn't heat and the cycle isn't set to cook, it means that one of your door switches has failed and will need to be replaced. Below is a link to a video that will show you how to test the 3 door switches to determine which one is faulty and needs to be replaced.
