Try lubing the latch mechanisms on the doors. The door ajar switches are built into those latches and when they get dusty or dry, they become unreliable.

or you could open all your doors one at a time and slam them shut. i had to do that a few times when i put my box in until it "molded" or whatever. but yea, lube them.
