The door no longer pops open when the latch button is pushed. How do I fix this?


One of the door latch arms or the latching mechanism inside the oven have broken. you may have to buy a complete door lock / latching assembly . Might not be worth it. Check with your nearest parts supplier.

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

This is a built in microwave with a push button to open the door. Push button won't work and door won't open.


It may be a broken door open lever or a worn or broken door open button.

If it's an owner the range type, you can likely get to and replace the door latch parts by just removing the control panel assembly.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If it's a counter top unit, you will need to remove the outer cover to get to the door latching parts.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

Can't open microwave door


It sounds like the push to open lever is cracked or broken. You have to remove the 'wrapper' to open the door manually from the inside to check the 'door keys' or door hooks to make sure that they are in tact. Then, check the door opening lever between the 'push to open button' and the lower door key.

THE DOOR DOES NOT OPEN


Take a look at the button you push to open the door.
You will need to remove the panel the door button is on and get to the back side.
This is very easy to do after you remove the cabinet.

The button you push to open the door is held in place with four tabs. If one of them tabs break it jams the button.
