Thank you for writing in. The door hits a switch when it is closed that lets the computer know that the door is shut. There is likely an issue with the door switch or with the wiring associated with the switch. Locate the switch in the door jam, and see if you can locate its wiring to ensure it is clean, dry, and tight. You may also need to inspect the switch itself as well. Only further inspection will tell. Good luck!
