Question about Panasonic NN-P794SF 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.
