Remove a door on a microwave

I need to replace my door (specifically the frame of the door, part 5304429402) on a frigidaire microwave (plmv168cc1). the door immediately began to deteriorate after purchase from heat from the stove. the microwave was installed at the proper height but the plastic did not withstand the heat. i now have to buy a whole new microwave or replace the door or the frame. can't figure out how to remove the door. so i'm asking for your help...thank you very much....

I wouldn't remove the door myself if I were you. If you just got the microwave, it should be under a return/replace policy, or a warranty. I would recommend returning the microwave and getting a sturdier one, as you don't know if the problem exists for all microwaves in that series, and most stores don't allow the replacement to be return/replaced.

New microwave got condensation between glass panels. Got new door happened again. I think it's a design defect. How can I disassemble to clean as needed?


To be honest-- it's not worth the effort. Some doors do come apart and some are glued together. If the replacement door is only listed as a complete door it doesn't come apart. If it does come apart, it requires prying the plastic frame off the inner side of the door to get to the screws. The frames usually crack if you are not careful. Contact Frigidaire customer relations and explain the problem and see what they have to offer either as a repair or explanation.

Fix sagging frigidaire microwave door


Hello Rick, thank you for your inquiry!

From my understanding you need to fix a door that is sagging on your Frigidaire microwave. Your door could be sagging due to the hinges or the door being damaged. I would check to make sure there is no visible damage. It is possible that the hinges and door may need to be replaced as well. To help avoid any unnecessary part purchases you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper repairs. -Matt

Frigidaire microwave plmv168cc1 makes humming noise when door closed


Chances are that the secondary (cook) relay on the control circuit board is shorted, meaning that the oven is actually cooking any time the door is closed.

You can test that by putting in a cup of water, shutting the door, and letting it go for about 30 seconds, then checking the water temperature.

This is dangerous, and can lead to a fire, so please unplug the oven until it is repaired.

The relay can be replaced for far less than the cost of a new control circuit board.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
