Please re read my post and make sure you test the switches and properly replace defective parts. If you do not have a meter you can pick one up fairly cheap. Do not alter wiring and try to bypass the safety features of the microwave.You are dealing with high voltage and radiation. If everything is replaced properly the outer cover should lock into place with the tabs and be flush, no caulking required. If you are unable to do this, Please, call a qualified service person.
