Test this steps and fix it. God bless you

  1. Open leverCheck your microwave lever to determine if it is damaged. If it is broken, simply replace the lever to get your microwave door fully functional again.
  2. Door springResponsible for keeping downward pressure on the door hook, the microwave door spring can begin to malfunction. If this part is broken and prevents you from opening your microwave door, replacement is necessary.
  3. Door latchOne reason your microwave door may not open properly is a broken door latch. Located inside the microwave, the door latch manipulates the door hook to keep the door closed for safety and top performance. If broken, the door could become stuck in the locked position.
  4. Door hookIf your microwave door will not release properly, the door hook could be damaged. Located inside the door, the door hook is made of plastic and prone to breakage with extended use or age. As this part is unable to be repaired, the only option is to replace it.
  5. Button or button springIf the microwave door will not open, it could be an internal failure of the button or button spring. If it is determined that either of these parts is the source, both are replaceable and it is recommended that they be installed at the same time.
  6. Handle actuatorIf the microwave door will not open the plastic handle actuator could be broken. Connected between the door button and the door latch assembly, this plastic part could become damaged and brittle over time, which makes breaking inevitable. If this occurs, replace the handle actuator to get your microwave fully functional again.

Door snaps when you open it fully


Possible that the alignment of the DOOR is not correct as it might be rubbing against the lock and switch. You need to remove the front panel and reset the lock and switch to solve this fault. Check for broken plastic parts which can be glued back.

I HAVE A PANASONIC NN-CT776 COMBI MICROWAVE AND THE DOOR REFUSES TO SHUT ANY HELP PLEASE?


Failure of the lock mechanism , fault in the lock switch which cuts off the power to the microwave when the door is opened or a fault in the hinges.
Remove the top cover and look on the sides to the lock section, It is possible that the switch has closed not allowing the door lock to latch. You can use a screw driver to push this and press the door to reset.
Please have the power supply removed.

Door will not close all way, goes up and down ok I cant see any adjustment


Possible fault in the door lock assembly where the reset switch is also placed. So if this switch is jammed or the lock has not opened then the door may not close.
So remove power connection and open top lid to look into this section.

For a 1995 Sharp Carousel Convection Microwave oven Model # R-9H66 it has on display screen ''LOCK'' and will not allow any function, is there a solution? The light inside works when the door is opened...


Check the user book for the unlock code. This could be the child lock mode.

If one of the safety switches are defective, or if there is a sensed power supply fault, the uPC will put the oven in the lock mode for safety reasons.

You have a faulty keypad. You could probably special order this part from a local appliance parts supply store for 50-60$ or purchase a new microwave.
