Question about Frigidaire GLMV169D Microwave Oven
It appears the bottom hinge is missing a screw, causing the door to slightly sag and rub when opening and closing
Repairing the loose, detached hinge is simple.
First buy a pop rivet tool and 1/8'' or 3mm rivets for about $16 at lowes
Second remove the door. There is a little plastic pop tab on the inside top corner of the door by the hinge that keeps the door from lifting off of the hinge pins. Use a 1 inch putty knife or maybe a butter knife and pry from the bottom crack. Once tab is off the entire door can be lifted off.
Third, line up the little holes in the bracket with the little holes in the microwave face. Insert a pop rivet in the hole and squeeze the tool till it pops off. I put one 3mm rivet on the top hinge and one on the bottom.
No drilling needed on my Fridgidaire PLMV169DCd microwave. I guess u could drill a 1/8'' hole thru the microwave face and the hinge bracket if there isn't one on your model.

From my understanding your Frigidaire microwave door is sagging and about to fall off. This could be an issue with your hinges or door. In order to check if you hinges are not damaged you may need to disassemble your microwave this is not a simple DIY job. I would highly recommend having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid personal injury, future problems, or unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt
