Open door if latch is broken


And you can't just pull the door open? I know it's easier to push the open door button but both ways should work unless the safety switch bracket moved from it's intended position. I hesitate to offer this solution, but who wants decayed food smelling up the home? Let's assume it's a counter top oven, remove all cover screws and the cover. STAY AWAY FROM ALL WIRING and I should have said first unplug the power from the appliance. Locate the door latch area and lift up on the plastic/metal bar that has a spring attached to it and the door should be released. Pushing the door release button should lead you to the latch. Once you see how it works you may find the reason the latch is malfunctioning. If it's a over the range type you will have to remove a grill at the top of the oven to access the mounting screws that release the oven from the bracket but the latch reference above will apply to this type as well.

Can not open the door in microwave the release button springs seem to not working can that be fixed. Have opened the release button but cannot see the problem


Do not pry the door open since there is an easier remedy which will lead you in the direction that you need to fix your problem. Take the cover off after you disconnect the power to it. Once you have taken the cover off (only a few screws) you will be able to see the two latches that hold the door closed and the link that opens both of them. You can just lift both latches at the same time and it will open. After you have done that take a good look and press in on the open door button and you will see where you have the problem of the door hanging. That button should push a linkage that pushes up on both latches at once to open the door. It is spring loaded so that it comes back down so that when you close the door it will hold the door close.You need to take the cover off the microwave so that you can pull both of the latches that hold the door closed up. When you push the button in it engages a linkage that pushes both taches up at the same time to open the door. It is springloaded and will come back down during normal operation to hold the door closed when you close it again. That area is where your problem is. By looking at what happens when you press the open door button you should be able to readily see where the problem lies in that linkage

I have whirlpool model GT4175SP.after heating a dish i cannot open the door as it has no spring action and microwave does not work. but there is power and light. jay


It may be a broken door open lever or a worn or broken door open button, or possibly the spring mount for the door latch heads (hook-like projections) may be off inside the door.

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 you have to remove it from the wall to remove the cover, y
ou can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If it's a counter top unit, you will need to remove the outer cover to get to the door latching parts, in which case you can see these files: safety disassembly.

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.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Microwave door button spring broken and door wont open


What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed.

Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

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.

Push button foe a R-1870F Microwave. Somehow the button slid down in behind the conrols. How do you get it out. It look like some type of spring holds it in place.


You have a broken tab on your door open button (drawing ref. 3-2-4) or a broken door lever (ref # 4-25).

The button is normally held out by the spring.

You can find the entire service manual for the R1870/R1871 at our site here.

Cannot open the door Dacor Model DMO24S


You will need to remove the outer wrapper, then separate the control panel from the microwave by removing the screw and then lifting the panel up and away. If you disconnect any wires, be sure to mark them, make a diagram or take photos first so you get them all back exactly where they were. The attached photo shows the area where two locking tabs are located. They must be gently pushed in to allow the door open button and spring to be removed. The door open button is part # 86778 (if your oven is black or stainless, part # 86778 if your color is arctic) and it can be obtained from a Dacor distributor such as http://www.apdepot.com This should be the same as a Sharp model R330BK (black model) and you can order that door open button from Tritronics. It is part # JBTN-B088WRF0 and they are at http://www.wehaveparts.com
