SOURCE: The latch that opens the door to my Jenn-Air model

If the point of damage can be glued together with good bonding and further re-enforcement , it can be strong to withstand pressure.
So remove the assembly to try this out before you think there is no way out but to replace with the handle assembly from the service center.
The other option is to get one from a scrapped set.

SOURCE: jenn air microwave loose door

Most if not all of these units have a safety switch--can't get at it from the outside---if unit is taken apart it often is snapped into a plastic holder and prevents the unit from working if door is open.

If it is loose or not engaged completely the unit will do what you are describing.

Frigidaire microwave won't start when door is closed. It looks like the door does not latch properly. It worked 20 minutes ago and last night. How do you troubleshoot and/or fix the switches.


Hello Scott Noble - If I was in your position, I personally will recommend consulting a certified technician first for an accurate diagnosis. Depending on what part(s) is damaged from the door, the microwave could possibly have faulty switches, door switches, or latch which only a professional can repair.

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.

Door latch is broken and cannot get door open to repair latch.


Door catches.

One of the latches may be damaged or misaligned and is not lifting the other latch clear of the housing. Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. When the door levers are in place, the door may be easily adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.




Door switches

If one of the door interlock switches is not switching properly or there is a condensation problem on the sensor control panel, either can cause the turntable/light/oven to come on even though the "Start" button has not been depressed due to the wiring of the switches.
Check for faulty door switches and/or contaminated actuators.
I hope that helps.

This is the door latch, and replacing it is not a bad job for a do-it-yourselfer, in case you or someone you know may want to do it.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see how you can replace the broken door latch. (Don't lose the spring!)

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

If you don't want to do it yourself, you can find your nearest Jenn-Air / Maytag-authorized servicer here.

They generally charge about $75 to visit the home, $75-90 to do the repair work, and the part may run about $15 or so. If nothing else, you can save about $75 by taking it to the shop yourself.

I'd suggest a helper for that task, and you can download installation instructions here.

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