Question about Panasonic NN-S251 Microwave Oven
I have had a problem with this beastie for a while now. When I pressed the door open button, the door would be released but not fully open until I gently pulled it. Now the door is closed but pressing the open button does nothing? There is no resistance left to the button and I don't want to force the door open to try the "Rubber Band" remedies suggested by others without first asking if prising the door would do more damage?
Well 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 closed. Anyway that is where your problem is. Let me know if you need more hlep.
