Greetings all and Happy New Year!
We have a Panasonic 1250 watt 2.2 cu ft microwave, model # NN-S954WF. The problem is when the door is opened, the turntable starts turning. Nothing else is running. Now when the door is open, if I push and release the big button that opens the door, the turntable reverses direction. The turntable does not rotate with the door closed and the oven off. Other than that, the microwave functions normally. I think I have narrowed it down to a faulty door switch, but I am not a professional. I could not find the part let alone a source for it. If it really is a door switch, what is the difficulty replacing it if I had a new switch? The oven works great other than this but my wife says to trash it and get a new stainless steel microwave. But if I can fix this one it will be WAY cheaper, but I can't locate the part if it is the door switch. What do youse pros think?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
