SOURCE: Stuck Microwave door

The button assembly or the arm thats attached to the push button is broken. With the unit unplugged. Carfully take off the screws from the sides and around the back of the unit around the outside of the cover. Now once apart, DO NOT TOUCH any electrical parts. Look at the mechanism and see if you can see why the buttons not activating an arm to trigger the door latch. If you think you see why, Go to http://www.repairclinic.com and enter your model #.. Answer the questions and then a bunch of parts will come up. If they dont then get the tele # from there and call them. Depending on how old the oven is, you may want to consider a newer oven??. Good luck

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: when I open my microwave door, it starts running

Yes it is running.  This should be checked by a professional for safety reasons.  If it is older I would just replace the microwave because repairs can be too expensive compared to a new one.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.

Wolf Microwave model MW24. How do I repair door problems?


Microwave doors are very important have contact switches that switch off if open or damaged. Interfearing with the door could lead to serious injury. The best way to sort doors tha wont open or close is to replace with old doors of the same make that does not have the same problem.

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

Sparp R 930 not heating, turntable not turning


I just repaired mine with the same symptoms. I found that the bottom microswitch on the door (there are 3 switches) was faulty. It started as open, when the door closed, the switch closed (good), but when the door was fully closed the switch was open again. I went to Electronic City with the switch in hand, they found me a duplicate that cost me $2.50. BTW - you must take out the door switch assembly, 3 screws plus wires, in order to work on the switch. Also, put the assembly back in so that the door latches close/open the switches correctly. -jk

Turntable won't turn


Look at the front panel, at the bottom, in the middle.
Identify the button labeled "Turntable On/Off".
Push it.
Slap yourself on the forehead.
Next time you fumble to turn of the light in the dark, push the right button.

MIcrowave runs with the door open also


your door switch is mis-adjusted,furthermore the other safety switch on the door should have blown the power fuse in the unit,because by design for safety it produces a short circuit if door opens under operation,so if door was taken off and replaced it was not adjusted properly

The door of my Kitchen Aid Microwave YKCMS1555RSS wouldn't open because the plastic prods that push open the latch had worn down. The oven was otherwise functional. I inserted some plastic knobs to extend...


The door latch heads (prods) are not making proper contact with the door switches, so it will not work right.

The latch heads need to be replaced.

You can order parts for this Canadian model here.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Microwave stopped working


There is a internal locking mechanisim that has 2 or more switches that is usually attached with two or more screws next to the door latch side. Crack open the micro and adjust this by shutting the door then pushing this assy toward the latches untill all the switches look like they are being pushed in fully. If this doesn't solve the problem one of the switches or possibly more are defective. Call a local appliance repair center and get a switch there called micro switches.

Microwave seems to turn on when door latch is opened


What's happening is you are activating one door switch a little before the other, and that is causing your light, fan, and turntable to come on. The plastic parts are not perfectly rigid, so they flex a little when you press the button, and that causes the lag to be more apparent. Even if you press the door open faster and look really close, you may notice the light, fan, and turntable coming on for a split second. That's perfectly normal. The relay on the control board must also be turned on before it will actually be cooking.
