Question about Smeg FME24X Microwave Oven
Hi, The door catch on my SMEG FME24X microwave broke and I have ordered a replacement part. Does anyone have any experience of replacing these? I am keen to avoid an engineer call out for just a little piece of plastic. I am hoping that there is a 'technique' to removing the old catch and fitting the new one that does not involve removing the entire door and disassembling it. Cheers. John
If you're talking about a hook-like device that sticks out of the door and goes into a hole in the chassis of the microwave (or any other internal part of the door for that matter) you'll have to take the door apart. Brands and models vary, but some use screws which are obvious, and others use hidden hooks similar to the ones in the drawing I've added to this post. If you can post or e-mail photos of the area where the part goes, we may be able to translate our experience with other brands to yours.
