Microwave Problem

I have a 2006 Salem 27BHSS with a Magic Chef microwave. Today I tested it for the first time and was unable to get it to run unless I held the door in a certain way and pushed start. I don't know if it is a door issue or the start button because sometimes I had to hold the start button or it would shut off. Is there a way to adjust the door? The trailer is not sitting level, would this cause a door issue?

To fix you will have to remove from mount and open up the case and readjust the micro switch in the door so it can activates the system.

Thanks I'll give that a shot. Does the micro switch adjust easily?

I can't be sure about yours but it usually has a small platic part that hits the latch to active all the rest.

Here is a link to a video on how it woirks and how to repair.
