Thanks for the advice.

The 'Samurai's Ichiban Law of Appliance Repair
' states "Never replace a part unless you have proof that the part is bad".  And while I'm no samurai, I am cheap.

Is there any way to test that this is the problem?  Even though I have only had the unit for 6-months, I did buy the unit used and therefore it would not be covered by warranty.  $120 bucks for a special order seems a bit steep to just poke and pray.

Is there a way to bypass or trip the door-latch sensor to see if the unit runs? 

Also, would replacing just the door latch solve the problem?  I'm looking at the door parts diagram and wondering if part 14 would do the trick.  $39 in stock seems like a better choice provided it accomplishes the same.

Thanks for the new direction - I've almost scratched a bald spot on my head trying to figure out where the pressure switch was failing.  Now I understand the 'Favorite Brew' question and how it relates to appliance repair.
