Keeps blowing fuses every time I open the door. I've replace all the interlock switches they are all seated and opening and closing with the door. The light comes on then goes back off as the fuse blows when opening the door. I suspect one of the switches but need help.

One of the switches does indeed cause a dead short and fuse blowing. The schematic diagram should be on top inside the case.

If the fuse blows when the door is opened, it's definitely switch related.  If both interlock switches and the monitor switch were replaced at the same time and the problem persists, I'd consider replacing the switch mount/lock assy P/N WB06X10498.
