Question about Whirlpool GT4175SPS Stainless Steel 1200 Watts Microwave Oven
The door open button is not working, I can't open the door of the microwave, how can I fix this problem? how do I open the micro to see what's wrong? Thanks.
The door latch must have broken in side which had stucked the door does not allow to open. Please arrange to call service engineer from the maufacturer's service center to fix the problem as proper alignment of the latches is must for safety measures.

Close and open door few times to check the door latch(es) and switch(es).
