original problem was when set to cook,clock would count down and nothing else,no fan ,no heat,etc. seems like one of the door switches,right? well, all door switches and switch housing replaced at once, same problem. micro will work if door is pushed up on corner and held there. there does not appear to be any adjustment for door switches or door. go back tech said he "tweeked" lower door hinge to adjust, and that worked for about 4 days. same problem back again. all parts that were replaced wereoem, and all connectors to door switches were re checked.I've noticed the frame has some flex to it even when gently lifting door up and down.Seen this problem before with this same brand/model and customer ended up replacing micro. Any ideas?

Bad hinges? Some customers have a tendency to lean on the door, bending the hinges.
