After self cleaning the range the door won't open....
The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.


Hope this may help;

How do I unlock the key panel


Opening the door while the oven is cooking will greatly shorten the life of the door switches and lead to failure.
Always hit "Stop" first unless the recipe calls for it.
The instructions for the child lock are in the owner's manual.
To set the lock, press Stop/Clear, then hold the "0" pad for more than four seconds. You will hear two beeps and the display will show "LOCKED".

To unlock, hold the "0" pad for more than four seconds. You will hear two beeps and the display will no longer show "LOCKED".

This is a built in microwave with a push button to open the door. Push button won't work and door won't open.


It may be a broken door open lever or a worn or broken door open button.

If it's an owner the range type, you can likely get to and replace the door latch parts by just removing the control panel assembly.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If it's a counter top unit, you will need to remove the outer cover to get to the door latching parts.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

I need to replace the plastic button that is pushed to open door on the R1470a Sharp Microwave. where can I purchase this part?


What usually breaks is the door open lever, but it may also be that the rear side of the door open button has worn down too far to work.

On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be
removed.

Please unplug the oven first.

My over the stove whirlpool microwave shuts off and keypad will not work shows F2 on the display... pressing of door sometimes makes it come back on


sounds like the door interlock switch or the linkage on the door that activates the switches. Don't know your knowledge, you get to them by opening the control panel, if it's over 5 years old I wouldn't put any money in it, I imnagine it's made by Samsung in Korea.

Microwave runs when the door is open.. stops when you shut it.


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

This can be caused by slamming the door or by habitually opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Microwave Comes on when Door is Opened


It sounds like a problem with the door switch or mount or the control panel. I've attached an exploded view of the oven which shows the door switches and mount. They're located behind where the door hooks go into the chassis. You can find our safety and disassembly instructions at our site via my link here: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk If it's not switch-related, then you may have a shorted component on the control board. We repair these for customers nationwide for $32.50 postpaid in most cases.
