Question about Siemens HF17055GB Microwave Oven
The push botton for the door release goes in, light turns on but door doesn't release to open. How do I get the door open
Chances are the rear of the door button and/or the face of the door open lever is worn enough that it will not actuate properly.
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.
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.
