Summary: I bought the microwave back in the Summer of 2013. For the most part the microwave cooks food really well. Plenty of power and options. But this Fall, we started having a problem with it. When we close the door to cook food, the microwave still thinks the door is open.
Summary: Originally, I simply adored this microwave. I have had it for three years now, and it is no longer serviceable in any way. The sad part is, I don't even use the microwave that much...just reheating occasional leftovers or making hot water. So what happened?
The latch failed after a year. Don't buy. (edit: i fixed it temporarily with pliers, screwdriver and dowels)

Summary: It was an incredible microwave for a little over a year--and then the door latch failed. Same problem dozens of other reviewers are having. Need to slam the crap out of the door to get it to register as closed, otherwise the light stays on and the oven won't start.
Summary: Bought this expensive microwave 1.5 yrs ago after deciding to retire our 13+ years old microwave that still worked pretty well. First problem appeared within 6 months of owning this product. It's often a challenge to open the door.
Summary: Please explain about the exact reason to me. Thank you.
