Bad sensor/switch within the microwave.

Latch body and switch assy. part number DE96-00414A needs replaced.

The latch body and switch assembly DE96-00414A comes with the switches that monitor the door position and the latch body that holds the switches in place so the switch is bad causing the unit to not detect the stopped state.
