Title:

Microwave runs as soon as door is opened.

Text:

Model# JVM1740DM1WW I think the issue is in the interlocking door switch. Is there a way to check what each switch(there are open/closed/2 terminal/monitor,etc.) does? I do not have a voltage meter, and would prefer not to have to check each switch with one. I can't afford the service/repair fees,so need to repair it myself. Thanks,Ann

-Im concerned because when I opened the for to get my food out after heating it, the microwave turned on and my hand was inside. I quickly pulled it out and shut the door. Now I'm concerned a out it. If it's gonna hurt me because I was exposed to it.
