Intermittent light & turntable operation

Intermittent light & turntable operation

Kenmore 721-62463201 microwave. Intermittently the light and turntable stop operating, but magnetron continues to heat. I can push the door or touch the latch button and they will start operating again. Sometimes when opening the door the light will NOT turn on. Sometimes when in operation touching the door frame or latch button lightly (or banging on the unit with my hand) will cause the light/turntable to stop… touch again they will start… etc… all the time the magnetron is heating and clock counting down. Changed primary interlock switch (looked like it had burnt contacts), the other two switches have good looking contacts and measured good with multimeter. I’m thinking a mechanical latch alignment problem or loose wire. Any help appreciated.
