Product Description

The microwave door interlock switch prevents the microwave from starting if the door is open. If your microwave will not start when the door is closed, or it continues running if the door is opened, the door switch may need to be replaced. This microwave door interlock switch is a genuine OEM replacement part. We recommend that this part be installed by a qualified service technician. This is due to the testing the switch requires after installation, along with the potentially dangerous amount of charge the microwave capacitor can hold.

Circuit breaker and internal fuse blew upon opening door
Un-mount from cabinets. Remove top & side cabinet (single piece). Internal fuse is immediately accessible in High Voltage compartment (top). Interlock switches are mounted to a single assembly at the door latch. A single screw removes the entire assembly. I found it very difficult to remove the old switches from the interlock latch without breaking tabs on the latch, so, I purchased both switches AND a new interlock. Take pictures of the wire connections to the original installation before removing wires for reference when you re-install. Note that the failure of the fuse and circuit breaker worked in this situation as the fuse popped as I opened the microwave door. The microwave was NOT operating nor was the fan at the moment the fuse popped. A fuse which pops while the microwave is cooking is LIKELY NOT the interlock switches!
