Question about Frigidaire FMV156D Microwave Oven
My microwave just stopped. If I close the door and then push it (gently) up it starts but when I let go it stops again.
Would I need a whole door or just the latch? And which latch? The two nearest the handle?

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

remove the outer casing so that you can gain access to the door locking mechanism, you will then have to use common sense to decide how to repair

Good Morning friend, thank you for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your microwave will start when the door is open and stop when it is closed. It sounds like a possible issue within your control panel or door latch assembly. I would suggest you reset your microwave which can be done by unplugging it for roughly ten minutes.
If that does not correct the issue I would consult a professional technician to come out and properly diagnosis your appliance. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

Hello Scott Noble - If I was in your position, I personally will recommend consulting a certified technician first for an accurate diagnosis. Depending on what part(s) is damaged from the door, the microwave could possibly have faulty switches, door switches, or latch which only a professional can repair.
