The top latch on the door that activates the microwave broke off. Can we replace this ourselves, or do we need to call a technician to come dismantle the door & replace the latch?

Nancy,
Can you see the inside portion of the latch? If so, you might try getting some quick set plastic epoxy. This will require some patients and a steady hand. Mix epoxy, apply to both ends, reattach and hold for a long time! Min 5 min's. Understand, if you cant do this with out getting epoxy on the surrounding parts of the door you shouldn't attempt this. You will end up gluing the latch in place- still wont work. Otherwise call a tech. But unless it is a built in over the stove microwave, it may be cheaper to get a new one than call for service! My charge to come do such a repair would be about $100 plus part. Is it worth it?

I have an electric stove with all knobs and I can'oolt set it to self clean. It's a Whirlp


Ours has a hidden locking door latch that you have to activate before the clean mode would start. Get down low & look for a really thin latch in the opening between the door & the top.

OVEN DOOR LATCH BLOCKS THE OVEN DOOR FROM CLOSING ALL THE WAY. I CANNOT GET THE DOOR LATCH TO RETRACT.


Hi

There could be couple things. First, try pushing the door closed as you turn the handle. The latch may have dropped into the strike hole completely, binding the latch. Or you may try lifting the door as you try and open it. Friction is the one thing that most often happens causing a latch not to retract.
Another possibility is that the latch may have become detached from the knob set. If this is the case, you will have to remove the lock from the door, and from there you can open the door with a flat blade screwdriver. I recommend replacing the latch as well. If you remove the lock from the inside of the door, using a flat blade screwdriver you can pull the little 'T' that sticks out from the latch on the inside of the hole. This pulls the latch back away from the strike, allowing you to open the door.

There are different configurations of latches, and they activate like way. You could run into a long latch the lock runs through. You can use a large flat blade to activate that. If you have the type with the half moon, use the outside of the lock body, stick it into the half moon, and turn the whole thing to retract the latch.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Haier RTC1700ss digital display doesn't work. Beeps when plugging in but no functions


Hello

Here are a few things you shoul look at and try to correct to make your oven work properly

Make sure the electric oven is plugged in properly.

Check that door closes completely and its latch is aligned.

Check that interlock switch in door works properly (required for activating oven).

There might be a blown fuse,replace blown fuse if it's accessible, or contact a service technician.

Inspect plastic coupling beneath tray.

Check ring and roller assembly for misalignment or debris.

Make sure that tray is sitting properly on turning mechanism.

If carousel motor is broken, contact a service technician

Make sure there's no aluminum foil or metal trim on dishware.

Food residue or burned spots can cause electrical arcing. Clean chamber thoroughly. Replace wave-guide cover if burned or carbonized.

Sand away burn spots, and smooth rough metal edges.

Touch up spots with microwave interior paint if necessary.

If chamber has burn holes, contact a service technician.

If you hear an unusual buzzing noise, the magnetron (the component that actually generates the microwaves) or other electronic module may be broken. This is not easily fixed; contact a service technician.

Microwave door will not latch closed


I just had this problem with a Samsung microwave/hood combo. I pried/popped the inside molding out with a screwdriver. The little lip that the spring attached to had broken. I drilled a hole in the center of the door latch, reattached the spring, replaced in door, replaced inside decorative molding, and fixed in 5 minutes. Thank goodness because it's such a pain to replace these units.

Oven door does not lock for self cleaning - makes a clicking sound


HI, This is a indication of door latch malfunction. There may be an obstruction within the door latch mechanism. I would advise to inspect the mechanism for anything that may be jammed inside the latch mechanism. If there are no visible obstructions that may keep the latch form fully activating, this will confirm that the mechanism has failed mechanical.

You will need ot replaced the door latch mechanism, in this case.

If you have a freestanding unit, simply pull the door open, and lift the top section to access. If this is a slide in model, with no top mount control, simply open the door, and pull the control panel, to expose the door latch assembly. You may be able to pull the top section up on a slide in, as well.

Once you have gained access to the actual door latch assembly, use the test below to confirm the damage to the circuit.


Before repairs or further testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. Set the latch to the "clean" position and test for circuit continuity at the terminals of the switch with your VOM's ohmmeter function. If there is no continuity, the switch is faulty. Use caution when testing.

The oven would not start


It doesn't work at all If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these: 1)Fuses---- Usually, when your microwave oven doesn't work it all, the internal fuse (thermal fuse) is blown. This fuse protects both you and the oven. When it blows, you need to have a qualified appliance repair technician replace it. 2)Door switch--- If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work. please do not forget to rate the solution.thanks.
