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.

Tips for a great answer:
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

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
