I have an Emerson Microwave Model #MW7300W, it appears that a small hook on the Latch is broken off of. This hook holds the spring that allows the hook to hold the door closed. I have tried looking


If this is a .5-.7 cubic foot cheapy, your only source will likely be an appliance boneyard. Otherwise, check with searspartsdirect web site using the model # for replacement parts. You can also check with Emerson web site {I beieve it is part of the Funai electrical empire}

Emerson microwave door latch


I have an Emerson MW8999RD that all of a sudden yesterday wouldn't latch. I don't think you have to, but I took the door off (three screws hold the case on which needs to be removed to get at the top hinge). Then I took off the inner plastic picture frame - pretty easy with a thin blade to move the fragile tabs. Then I removed the metal frame that has the little microwave blocking holes. This was the hardest part because the plastic retaining tabs are even more fragile and I broke one. Then I found the loose spring due to broken plastic hook as described above. I was able to make a new hook by simply looping a small zip tie where the old plastic hook tip broke off. Now works great!

My boyfiend slammed the door shut and it has not worked since then


The door latch (on the door) or the door catch (on the oven) have most likely broken. The oven will not operate if the door is open or if it is not correctly closed.

Check the door latch. On most microwave ovens there will be one or two prongs. Make sure that they're not broken and that if neither of them is loose. Often one or both are designed to move upwards against spring pressure so if they move loosely with no spring pressure then the door must be dismantled to find out why. Often it's a broken spring anchor and sometimes it can be repaired, but the official fix is to replace the entire door assembly.

If the latch seems fine then it's almost certainly the door catch unit which must be repaired or replaced. They're not officially repairable, but sometimes all that has actually broken is a cheap and easily obtainable microswitch. If the catch has actually broken then there is no point in gluing it together as it won't hold. If the door catch assembly looks fine and the microswitch appears to be operable then use a continuity meter on the switch to confirm correct electrical function as the switch is pressed and released.

If that fails, then look for any fuses on the circuit board, the filament inside can break if they're subjected to too much physical impact. Test and replace any failed ones, but it's vital to use the correct type, the casing will indicate whether they're slow blow or fast blow fuses. These properties are independent of the voltage and current rating and simply regulate how quickly or slowly a fuse will fail if the limits are exceeeded. using a slow blow in the place of a fast blow is dangerous, but using a fast blow or a regular fuse where a slow blow goes will just mean that the fuse blows more often or even immediately in normal use, often when the door is opened.

If you need any spare parts then you'll have to find suppliers yourself, sorry. I don't know which country/state you're in and I'm based in London, England, where Emerson is not a known brand.

I hope that my answer helps you to either repair your oven or to decide whether to replace it. Please take a moment to rate my reply.

900E Microwave Oven Door Won't Open even after


Your latch has come apart inside the door or inside the oven. Probably a spring separated or broke.

Remove the cover --WATCH OUT FOR THE SILVER CAN - LETHAL -- and try to release the lock that way. I think you will be able to open it from inside but I also think your trouble is inside the door, though I dont have experience on this model. If the trouble is in the door, you will have to disassemble it. Look for hidden screws or a plastic strip which must be removed to separate the door halves.

Good luck in your project.

My emerson microwave has stopped heating up but appears fine


Hi 

If your microwave oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

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.

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 rate the solution as "FixYa" if found useful and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Broken door hook


The plastic cover on the inside of the door is purely push fit.
To force it off I used 2 strong stainless steel dinner knives.
By easing one knife between the internal glass and the plastic cover I managed to spring one corner by using the other knife on the external bottom edge of the plastic cover.
Try concentrating on one end and once this springs out it is easy to free the rest without having to take it off completely.
The hook is simple to do but be careful with the spring.
All in all it took 3 minutes!
