Beckman Coulter microfuge 18. Won't start

I have a Beckman Coulter microfuge 18 that won't start. Rotor set tight,  lid opens & closes. Power and fuses are OK. What should be checked next?

Sounds to me like there is a door latch switch problem. Are any of the pushbutton lamps flashing?

Yes, indeed that turned out to be the problem. One of the two latch switches was found to be sticky and did not spring back into place. The solution was simply a bit of silicone spray.

Thanks for your help!

Mike
