Door won't engage and stay closed


Possible that the lock was broken and so the door opened. You can remove the front panel and check for broken plastic or nylon pieces which can be glued using instant adhesive.
Reset the lock and switch and the door must lock in correctly

Samsung microwave #SMH1611B door won't close


If it has the "double hook" type latch on the door,see if the hooks slide up and down.They should be spring loaded,if not,the spring attachment point inside the door may have broken off(my Sharp Carousel did this).I pryed the plastic door trim loose,and reattached the spring by using one of the slots inside to hold a metal wire clip(modified with needle-nose pliers) to hook the spring onto.Your door's design may be a little different,but a similar solution will probably be apparent after you get in there.

Sharp r520kst door won't stay shut


If the door will not stay closed it is the spring inside door, or the small plastic piece that holds the spring which is attached to the $80.00 piece called outer door.
To fix it, it is EASY and you do not have to even take the inside cover all the way off. Just remove the three sides of cover by gently slipping a plastic putty knife around rim to release the clips. Then attach the spring to the small hole below where the plastic piece used to be, which is located in the metal on the glass frame piece, use tweezers, hold the other end of spring as you place spring onto plastic door latch and set into place!
Snap the inside cover back on and YAY! FINI!

Door has been an issue when closing light stays on and you really have to slam the door for the light to go off


Door catches.

Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. The door may be easily adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.

Door catch broken - door will not close. no sign of a broken piece. There was a bang and the catch just doesn't hold at all. door swings open


Door catches.

One of the latches has broken off and is not lifting the other latch clear of the housing. Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. When a new door lever is in place, the door may be easily adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.



Door switches

If one of the door interlock switches is not switching properly, that can cause the turntable/light to come on even though the "Starts" button has not been depressed due to the wiring of the switches.
Check for faulty door switches and/or contaminated actuators.
I hope that helps.
