You can order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

My microwave


The latch mechanism (specifically the bottom latch which is tied to the sensor) is not locking in place. Try lubricant on the latch and receiving side first (I used wd-40, but it smells horrible, so try maybe bike grease or even veggie oil to see if it helps). Main problem is that the latch panel is attached w/thin metal which I bet was designed to fail after the warranty has passed! You basically need a T-20 torx screwdriver to open the microwave all the way up and bend the metal bracket back. I ended up taking a long wire and tying it through the bottom latch assembly (there is a hole) between a top and bottom hole on the frame of the microwave to keep it from ever moving again. You want to pull the entire assembly (black plastic) towards the microwave cavity.

Frigidaire Mod: FGMV174KFB Door won't latch


Good Morning Friend,

I understand the door will not latch on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV174KFB. Typically, this would not be a do it yourself repair, as you are working with your microwave, and there are no step by step repair instructions. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your appliance and should be able to fix the latch on your door with ease. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Inside door latch broken on my Sanjo microwave EMD9552


Hi, For any repairs involving door latches on microwave ovens, I strongly urge you to get a certified service technician to replace and adjust the door for you as he should have a leak detector to verify the fix. Not performing the leak test could expose you/your loved ones to harmful microwave energy if not setup correctly

Door latch


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Open Lever If the microwave door won't open the open lever might be broken. This part can be replaced separately.

Door Spring If the microwave door won't open the door spring may have broken. The door spring is located inside the door and keeps downward pressure on the door hook.

Door Latch If the microwave door won't open the door latch might be broken. The door latch is inside the microwave. The door hook, which is part of the door, engages with the latch to keep the door closed during operation. If the door latch or actuator breaks the door may not open.

Door Hook If the microwave door won't open the door hook might not be releasing properly. The door hook is installed inside the door and normally releases when the door is opened. The hook is made of plastic and will break over time. When this happens it will need to be replaced, it can't be repaired.

Button Spring If the microwave door won't open the button spring might be broken internally. The button spring can be replaced.
Button If the microwave door won't open the button might be broken internally. The button can be replaced.

Handle Actuator If the microwave door won't open the handle actuator might be broken. This is a plastic part which can become brittle over time. This part is connected between the door button and the door latch assembly.

Samsung microwave door won't latch


You will need a Samsung dealer repairman, the inner mechanism will need to be serviced because for some reason it is jammed or there are broken parts.
