Is the door fully closed?

Ensure the door latch is not blocked and the door is fully closed.  Below are some common items that may prevent the microwave from closing or opening:

  • Packing and/or shipping material.
  • Dish or bakeware. Ensure the dish is the correct size for the microwave, an oversized plate will prevent the door from closing. 
  • Check that the cooking rack (if equipped) is not out of position and not allowing the door to close.
