SOURCE: I now have the same problem: I HAVE AN LG FRIDGE

LG has issued a service bulletin about this problem. You need to call LG or the ratailer you bought it from and tell them what's going on...the entire cost of the repair (parts and labor) should be covered....at least it was the last time I did one for a customer.

Door does not stay closed


If you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking out of the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off inside.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

The service manual for the R-408LS (the model you posted it under) is here.

You can order parts from the Sears Parts Direct Web site.

Door Latch


Larry, I believe you have to remove the inside door frame cover, starting at the top and working your way down. The cover should snap out and away from the door. Next would be the gasket bracket clips. With a flat tip screw driver insert into the seam between the gasket bracket and the door frame and pry out until the clips snap out. Then proceed to remove the gasket from the channel. Catriver.

Ok.Agreed,latch is not cracked or worn out.But check the grip of latch.Open the door.The hold the latch in your hand and see,if its loose or tight.It should be tight.Press the latch towards down and move it left/right slowly --- slowly.And inspect the latch.It will move,there will be a moment but the position of the latch in the door frame should be tight.If you feel that latch is got very loose,then the door frame needs to be disassembled and latch assembly has to be repositioned and fitted.In most of the cases this latch breaks/cracks and it needs replacement.But in your case,its different,you mentioned that if you keep your oven door pressed then latch remains closed..So if latch is broken/cracked it will not get closed properly.So as per that i think,you will have to check the opposite side of the door frame,where this latch gets into.On that side,there is a interlock type part.Which holds this latch.That part is operated by spring.If in-case that interlock type part or the spring,any of this is got loose then latch will get released after few minutes.--------------- But first as regular troubleshooting,you inspect the latch.Do you feel its loose or getting very easily moved,then open the door frame and check the latch.----------- For that you will required door disassembly diagram:--- Click the link,see part number 3 is door latch.-------- http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/W0505176-00002.png -------------- If the latch is properly positioned and intact then ,you will need to disassemble the opposite side cabinet to check the internal part,which hold the latch.For that you will require complete disassembly:---Click this link for complete disassembly:-- http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kitchenaid-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-KHMS155LSS2/0593/0123370?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=KHMS155LSS2 -------------- The door latch itself or other parts holding the door latch,none of the part is costly then $10.The cost of part is under $10.---------It just require you to figure out,either is cracked /broken part or just loose misaligned part.-------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

NEFF H5430NOGB Integrated oven - door won't close, the ;hooks on the door itself seem to have gone loose so they ill not clikc inot place when trying ot close, door just flops open.Amy ideas???


I had this problem. The spring inside the door which pushes the the latches down had broken (plastic peg had broken off).

I managed to fix it by attaching the broken end of the spring to the door frame using a small nylon cable tie using the small hole in the plastic fingers which was already there. Note you need to remove the inside door surround.

See the following link to remove the plastic cover on the door

I had an interim solution which was to tie some thin string to the latch and feed it under the door and pull on the string when closing the door (when it should be latching.

You can get to the latch through the trunk. In the trunk, pull the liner away from the area adjacent to the fuel door. You'll see a black cable that goes to the fuel door latch behind a metal frame. Reach in and turn the latch mount 90 degrees to release it from the fuel door frame. Your fuel door will now be open. You will need to repair or replace the cable, but at least you'll be able to fuel up for now.

We have critical safety & disassembly info at our site, linked here.

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

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

The best place to order Panasonic parts is Tritronics. You can also call them at 866-779-5835.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

NEFF H5470NOGB Microwave door latch fault


theres a small plastic hook inside the door which holds a tension spring this will have snapped off stopping the latch from entering the lock its actually quite easy to fix the inner plastic frame can be unclipped with a small flat blade screwdriver exposing the hook mechanism and the spring will be lying in the bottom of the door frame you can reconnect it to the metal inner frame it stretches the spring a little more but it will never snap again ive done this loads of times with no probs otherwise you will have to replace the outer door to reinstate the broken hook.
