There you have it. Sensor Error displays once you push Start after selecting time, but all manufacturer recommended remedies have no effect. Goes to Pause after start, UNLESS you hold that door open button down. Then you can get microwave to start and cook until the timer goes off with a 'ding'.

Despite the manufacturer's website troubleshooter, I suspect a problem with the door switches or some related part, but wanted to ask you guys first. I've never opened up one of these. Not afraid to do so, but would like a diagram or help before I do it.

I do like this microwave, and we've only had it since Christmas, 2007. Thanks.
