I work on a lot of these. Have not seen this problem. I would probably put it in a diagnostic test mode and test the door switches that way. sometimes when I run across an odd issue I will pull all quick disconnects from the main control board for a couple minutes.

Was that an obvious visual observation or was it something you had to look for on the board? Thanks for the update. Good to know.
