Question about KitchenAid Microwave Ovens
It may be that the push button, cam lever or door latch (or all three) have some grease accumulated on them that's making it sticky to open.
Or the rear surface of the push button or the face of the lever may be so worn that the door latches don't get pushed up all the way anymore.
These door opening parts are all located behind the control panel and pretty easy to get to so you can observe them as you press the button. That way you can figure out which is bad.
At our site, we have a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Good afternoon friend, thank you for the post!
I understand that you are stating the door open button is continuing to get stuck on your Frigidaire microwave. I would like to ask some additional questions to make sure I can provide additional assistance. First, which button are you referring to that is sticking? When I pulled up your model FGM0205KBB, I do not see a door open button. Could we verify the model number is correct? Once I have that information I look forward to assisting you. -Matt
