The door no longer pops open when the latch button is pushed. How do I fix this?


One of the door latch arms or the latching mechanism inside the oven have broken. you may have to buy a complete door lock / latching assembly . Might not be worth it. Check with your nearest parts supplier.

Open door if latch is broken


And you can't just pull the door open? I know it's easier to push the open door button but both ways should work unless the safety switch bracket moved from it's intended position. I hesitate to offer this solution, but who wants decayed food smelling up the home? Let's assume it's a counter top oven, remove all cover screws and the cover. STAY AWAY FROM ALL WIRING and I should have said first unplug the power from the appliance. Locate the door latch area and lift up on the plastic/metal bar that has a spring attached to it and the door should be released. Pushing the door release button should lead you to the latch. Once you see how it works you may find the reason the latch is malfunctioning. If it's a over the range type you will have to remove a grill at the top of the oven to access the mounting screws that release the oven from the bracket but the latch reference above will apply to this type as well.

Our LG microwave (LMA 1560SW?LMA1560SB) has a door that won't open. The open button will push in, but not release the door - the plastic button cover pops back out, but just the cover - not the whole...


Mine did this too. Also, at times when I would shut the door, the whole keypad would go dark and the clock would have to be reset. There were also times when I would push Start and it would do nothing. I'd have to unplug it so it would reset itself.
I used a screwdriver and forced the door open. Mine is about 2 years old and it's now dead. Biggest piece of junk I've purchased in years. Really ticked me off, no more LG products for me. I had a Toshiba that lasted me 22 years and the only thing that went bad on it was the light stopped working and the fan cover fell off.

Can not open the door in microwave the release button springs seem to not working can that be fixed. Have opened the release button but cannot see the problem


Do not pry the door open since there is an easier remedy which will lead you in the direction that you need to fix your problem. Take the cover off after you disconnect the power to it. Once you have taken the cover off (only a few screws) you will be able to see the two latches that hold the door closed and the link that opens both of them. You can just lift both latches at the same time and it will open. After you have done that take a good look and press in on the open door button and you will see where you have the problem of the door hanging. That button should push a linkage that pushes up on both latches at once to open the door. It is spring loaded so that it comes back down so that when you close the door it will hold the door close.You need to take the cover off the microwave so that you can pull both of the latches that hold the door closed up. When you push the button in it engages a linkage that pushes both taches up at the same time to open the door. It is springloaded and will come back down during normal operation to hold the door closed when you close it again. That area is where your problem is. By looking at what happens when you press the open door button you should be able to readily see where the problem lies in that linkage

Door wont open


After unplugging the microwave, I took the side/top panel off by removing the screws on the back*. Inside I found the piece that had broken off the part that pushes the door release. I then glued this piece back on using "Extreme Power" medium advanced performance instant adhesive. I bought this glue in a hobby shop in Richardson, Texas. I waited 12 hours for the glue to set. The door has been opening for the last two days.
*With the cover off, you can open the door by pushing the door release.

Panasonic microwave door is stuck. The door is not opening


If you push in on the open door button and it just goes in and does not open the door, then the problem is that the plastic piece that actually opens the door has broken. You can verify this by removing the cover from the microwave and look inside. If you are handy just buy the part from the panasonic parts store in your city and replace it. If not take it in and they will replace it for you.

Good luck

Stuck Microwave door


In most cases this is due to a broken door opening lever or loose or broken door latch / hook parts. They can only be accessed and examined if the cover is removed from the microwave. In many over the range models, you can access the door parts by removing the control panel assembly. Sometimes you may be able to get it open by pushing up gently on the bottom of the door while pushing the button, in case you need to empty it.
