Spanish translation:la puerta/tapa no está cerrada
Explanation:
Dependiendo del tipo de máquina, se la llama puerta o tapa. Si es una máquina de carga frontal, se habla de puerta y de que la máquina no se funcionará si la puerta no está correctamente cerrada; si es de carga superior, si la tapa no está completamente cerrada.

Son sutilezas pero se dice así.
