This should be fixed to prevent microwave leaking out. If you can not find a screw at a local hardware or appliance store look at;

Repairing the loose, detached hinge is simple.
First buy a pop rivet tool and 1/8'' or 3mm rivets for about $16 at lowes
Second remove the door. There is a little plastic pop tab on the inside top corner of the door by the hinge that keeps the door from lifting off of the hinge pins. Use a 1 inch putty knife or maybe a butter knife and pry from the bottom crack. Once tab is off the entire door can be lifted off.
Third, line up the little holes in the bracket with the little holes in the microwave face. Insert a pop rivet in the hole and squeeze the tool till it pops off. I put one 3mm rivet on the top hinge and one on the bottom.
No drilling needed on my Fridgidaire PLMV169DCd microwave. I guess u could drill a 1/8'' hole thru the microwave face and the hinge bracket if there isn't one on your model.

Microwave turns on when door is open and turns off when door closes


Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!

Based off the information you have provided your microwave will start when the door is open and stop when it is closed. It sounds like a possible issue within your control panel or door latch assembly. I would suggest you reset your microwave which can be done by unplugging it for roughly ten minutes.

If that does not correct the issue I would consult a professional technician to come out and properly diagnosis your appliance. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

Frig.Model FMV157GS: When door is closed it is heating without lite on or turntable rotating. If time is entered with the door open it then heats as normal when the door is closed. Thanks, Jim


Good Morning Jim Cole, thank you for your post!

From what you are describing it sounds like it could be an issue within your control panel or door switch. I would recommend having a technician out to properly diagnose your Frigidaire microwave to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Microwave runs when door is open


Hey friend, thanks for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire microwave is running when the door is opened. I have identified a few possibilities could be the control panel or your door. Since it could be any one of these underlying issues I would recommend having a professional come and properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt

My child lock on my Frigidaire is constantly beeping... The door is not locked but it is beeping...


Hello Shelley, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand your Frigidaire is constantly beeping while they door is unlock, however do you have a range or microwave Frigidaire appliance? The serial tag for a range, which lists your model number, is typically located in the storage drawer, on the right side and the serial tag for a microwave is in the lower left corner as you open the door. With this information I can better address the issue at hand. Thank you!

Frigidaire microwave plmv168cc1 makes humming noise when door closed


Chances are that the secondary (cook) relay on the control circuit board is shorted, meaning that the oven is actually cooking any time the door is closed.

You can test that by putting in a cup of water, shutting the door, and letting it go for about 30 seconds, then checking the water temperature.

This is dangerous, and can lead to a fire, so please unplug the oven until it is repaired.

The relay can be replaced for far less than the cost of a new control circuit board.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have a FMV145BC1 microwave oven, 5 yr old, everything works but food does not get hot!


Does the food get warm at all? My suspicion is you have a bad door switch. Do you open the door while the machine is running, ever? If yes, that is not good for the little contacts on the door safety interlock micro switches. I learned this by burning mine up. The switches are less than $ at a radio supply place and typically, you can change them yourself.

Unplug the machine. Remove the cover and you will find the interlock switches on the handle side of the door, probably on the right hand side. DO NOT TOUCH THE SILVER THING AT THE BACK SIDE OF THE MACHINE - IT IS POTENTIALLY LETHAL EVEN WHEN UNPLUGGED. If you have a volt ohm meter, you can test these switches for open and closed. If they read open when the door is closed, they (or it) is probably bad.

I have a Kenmore model 665.68611891 micro. The door pops open


Per se there is no real adjustment, but the linkage that holds the two nylon hooks on the door in may need to be lubricated with some lithium grease made for nylon or neoprene parts. The sliding neoprene part that holds the hooks in place is not sliding all the way down into position. That part once you take the cover off is right up against the right front hand side of your microwave exactly inline with the two hooks and next to the control panel assembly. Take the cover off and manually opening and closing the door you will see how that part moves up and down to release and secure the door in place. You will be able to see where to apply the lubricant which should be anywhere two or more nylon or neoprene parts rub against one another. Let me know how it goes or if you need more guidance.
