Question about Panasonic NN-P794SF Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Panasonic NN-ST666W Microwave oven

The door fails to spring open when you depress the OPEN DOOR button/lever. When the button is depressed, you can open the door but it seems like the mechanism is not pushing it open like it used to. Description of required parts or parts list would be great assistance before I disassemble oven.

What usually breaks is the door open lever, but it may be that the rear of the door open button and the face of the door open lever are worn to the point where they will not actuate.

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 in most cases.

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.

You can find Panasonic parts in Australia here.

How to fix the door button on panasonic microwave t6648fx?


Clean the inside edge of the door and oven where it contacts the door. Grease or oil is preventing the door to swing open.

Door does not open


You'll need to remove the outer cover to get to the door open button or door lever, either of which can cause this problem.

The service manual is here.

You can order Panasonic parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Oven door on PanasoniPanasonic microwave Model NN-SD277 won't open when pressing open button


I just had that problem. It is the plastic workings. One of the plastic posts that holds the pivoting lever had to be epoxied. That plastic rejects crazy glue, don't waste your time. Just epoxy and as much as you think can fit under the electronics and the metal plate you will have to pull out.

My suggestion is take pictures of every step so that you can hook all the electrics back up. There are some testy switches that must be unsnapped too.

The problem is the release spring is broken or the button is sticking, pick up a small can of electronic cleaner attach straw and spray into the button crevis to break down the crud, grime, and dirt this should help release the mechanism.

Our panasonic inverter microwave (3 years old) needs repeated hard slams to shut the door so that the light goes off and the microwave will work. How do we fix this problem as I'm afraid we are going to...


We have a Panasonic Inverter microwave. Door became difficult to close and had to slam it hard while holding themicrowave to keep it from moving. When opening the door did not pop open but did unlatch. I ordered a new door lever from Panasonic. When got part I removed case from microwave and lever was okay. I then removed the perimeter strip on the inside of the door. With a screwdriver I stretched the spring at the bottom that keeps the door latches pulled downward. Spring still worked just not as stiff. Put perimeter piece back on the door and replaced housing (which I didn't need to remove in the first place), and then put a small drop of vegetable oil on the cams where the door latches hit when closing door. Viola, door opens and closed as new. Problem solved. Diagnosis: over time the latch tension spring hardens and gets too stiff. P.S.: I had several similar springs as backup in case I screwed up the original one.

The door won't latch closed and the door release button pushes all the way in


I have the NN-T994 SFR model and it had a switch that was staying depressed. I removed the screws to (in my case) the stainless steel cabinet, removed the cabinet and unhooked the wires to lay it aside. Found that the switch was cracked or broken, glued it back exactly as it was, then put the cabinet back on and it fixed it! Now about a year later, I have another problem...oh well. Hope this works on yours.

Can't open microwave door


It sounds like the push to open lever is cracked or broken. You have to remove the 'wrapper' to open the door manually from the inside to check the 'door keys' or door hooks to make sure that they are in tact. Then, check the door opening lever between the 'push to open button' and the lower door key.
