I replaced the whole component with all three switches in it even though only one switch was bad . Taking out one switch out of the holder unit would probably have damaged the unit that was holding the switches. Easy install and it works great again .

diagnosed defective 'door-shut switch' in the switch holder assembly. rather than replace switch, replaced entire locker holder assembly which made for a very simple and easy repair...not to mention very inexpensive.

Problem was a faulty door latch switch. I easily accessed the switch by removing the control panel, total of 4 screws. After that, just disconnected the three switch door latch assembly and connected the new one. Took about half an hour and was very easy. Unit works perfectly now.

First, I checked YouTube to see if there was a video showing how to do the repair ... It's as easy as unplugging the power cord, removing 6-8 screws on the bottom panel, unplugging the wire harness from the AC synchronous motor, removing two screws hold the motor in place, putting the new motor in place with the two screws, connect the two wires to the brass tabs, replacing the bottom panel, reconnecting the power - and you're done. Easy!
