SOURCE: Directions to remove and open door panel to repair safety door latch.

You don't have to remove door to remove panel. Panel is held in by an outer plastic retainer which can be removed by carefully prying with a small screwdriver. I can be replaced by pushing it back in place after repair is completed. If you cannot open door from the outside, remove cover and you can see latches. Pry up on latch which will let door open.

SOURCE: MICROWAVE DOOR WILL NOT OPEN.

Please post the brand name and model number so we can have the best chance to help you.

But generally you will see a plastic lever that is touching both the door open button and the area of the door switches.

That lever is what breaks most often, and if you will push up on the door hooks (latch heads) , the door will open.

Pushing on the door open button repeatedly while looking inside will help you figure it out, too.

SOURCE: Need door assembly diagram to

While I don't have that model's diagram, normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) 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) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

You can order Panasonic parts here.

SOURCE: Broken door latch on Model 63679 Kenmore Elite Microwave.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) 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.

You can find helpful exploded views by entering your full Kenmore model number at the Sears parts site.

A full Sears/Kenmore model number has 3 digits, a dot, then 8 more digits, such as ###.########

Please be aware that you may have a broken spring mounting tab on the inner door panel.

In such cases, the best way to fix that is to drill a hole in the remaining material, insert the spring, then add a dab of epoxy where they spring attaches to the panel.

Viking Microwave door latch


Try pushing in on the door while pressing the door release latch;
Also, try pushing the door latch and reach under the front edge of the door and slightly pull as the latch is depressed.
Third option is use a suction cup, maybe from a GPS device on the glass portion of the door, pulling on it while you depress the door latch....let me know any problems or if I can help anymore.

Need to replace door handle


1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power. 2. Open the microwave oven door. 3. Pry the choke cover away from the top door pin, and remove the top pin from the pivot bracket. Lift the door off the bottom bracket, and remove it. 4. Place the oven door front side down on a padded surface. 5. Remove the choke screws from the door frame. 6. Starting at the top right corner, pry the choke cover out with a putty knife, and unsnap it from the choke. Only remove the top, bottom and right sides of the choke cover at this time. You will remove the handle end of the choke cover later. 7. Starting at the top edge of the door near the center and working clockwise, use a putty knife, and pry the latching tabs of the choke out of the door frame slots. Lift the choke as you release the tabs so they do not snap back into the slots. NOTE: When you reach the handle side of door, pull both the choke and the choke cover away from the door frame, and then separate the two components. 8. To remove the door switch actuators from the choke, remove the screw from each actuator. REASSEMBLY NOTE: When you reinstall the door on the oven, insert the top pin into the pivot bracket and press down on the pin until it snaps into place

Replacing a handle on a kitchenaide microwave


Hello

Unplug the microwave oven from its power outlet or turn off its circuit breaker. Remove the right fuse from the home fuse-box if your microwave is a built-in model.


Open the microwave door and take the top pin off its pivot bracket. Lift up the door and remove it from the bottom bracket. Lay the microwave door with its front side down on a folded towel. Remove the two choke screws from the door frame using a Phillips head screwdriver.


Remove the choke cover with the knife blade, starting from the microwave door's top right corner. Pry out the bottom and top right sides, leaving the side which houses the door handle in place.


Remove the choke tabs from their slots on the microwave door frame using the knife blade. Continue to work clockwise around your microwave door; remove the choker cover when you get to your handle's side to separate it from your choke.


Remove the two handles with the Phillips screwdriver. Remove the handle from the microwave.


Screw the new handle in the position of the original handle. Lay the choke on the microwave door; set the choke cover right on top of it. Insert the choke tabs into their slots on the microwave door frame using the knife blade.


Secure the two choke screws using a Phillips head screwdriver; set the microwave door back on the bottom bracket. Slide the top pin into the microwave's pivot bracket.


Press the top pin down until it pops securely into place.

I have an admiral microwave model 8573


That's made by Sharp and many of theirs (and other brands) require you to take the outer cover off to change the bulb. Here's how: Unplug the oven first. That's rule one! Remove all of the screws from the side and back of the outer wrapper / cover of the microwave. There are usually four on the rear edges and two on the bottom of the edges on each side of the cover. The cover then should be slid slightly backward then up from the rear and it will slide off. You may have to pat down on the sides to loosen it first. I use firm and simultaneous open-palmed slaps on both sides near the front, then pull it up and off. It is possible that some voltage will remain on the high voltage capacitor and can be conducted via contact with wires, connectors and components connected to it. If you stay away from all the wiring in the right rear (as you're looking at the front door) it should not be a problem. Unless there is a problem, the voltage should actually not be present. If you and the work area are clean and dry, and you only touch the light bulb while the cover is off, there should be no problem. Change the bulb. It may be held in with a bit of clear tape, too, so take a look at the socket first. When putting it back on, be careful that the inside front edges of the cover catch properly in the slots in the chassis. Good luck and be safe! Make sure it is unplugged!
