Sounds like the electronic actuator for the door lock has failed check for current at the actuator and if this seems ok then replace the actuator if not then replace the circuit board.

Possible that the door switch is broken or jammed,. You need to remove the top cover, open the panel and remove the door and switch , check for broken plastic or lock, If so use glue to stick and reset.

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

My Panasonic 1300w microwave will not turn off. It doesn't cook but won't turn off without actually unplugging it or opening the door and leaving it open. Any help?


You may have a shorted door switch or a shorted relay on the control board.

Door latch


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Open Lever If the microwave door won't open the open lever might be broken. This part can be replaced separately.

Door Spring If the microwave door won't open the door spring may have broken. The door spring is located inside the door and keeps downward pressure on the door hook.

Door Latch If the microwave door won't open the door latch might be broken. The door latch is inside the microwave. The door hook, which is part of the door, engages with the latch to keep the door closed during operation. If the door latch or actuator breaks the door may not open.

Door Hook If the microwave door won't open the door hook might not be releasing properly. The door hook is installed inside the door and normally releases when the door is opened. The hook is made of plastic and will break over time. When this happens it will need to be replaced, it can't be repaired.

Button Spring If the microwave door won't open the button spring might be broken internally. The button spring can be replaced.
Button If the microwave door won't open the button might be broken internally. The button can be replaced.

Handle Actuator If the microwave door won't open the handle actuator might be broken. This is a plastic part which can become brittle over time. This part is connected between the door button and the door latch assembly.

Door open button won't work on KitchenAid microwave model YKCMS135H


Page 3 of the exploded view here shows the door open parts 24510L and 250201 (or 23551B if your full model number is YKCMS135HSS).

What look like part numbers seem to be reference numbers.

The door won't pop open, you hear the click and you have to manually ply the door open


Since no model number was posted, I have to give a general answer.

It's likely that one of the door opening parts (most likely the door open button or lever) is broken.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.
