Whirlpool Velos GH7208XR Convection works fine but microwave says door open and will not work on microwave. could it be door latch but then why does convection work?


I'd check the primary and secondary door switches for proper operation. Could be a failed switch, or adjustment issue on the switch assembly or door latching mechanism.

You also might have a failed thermal protector on the magnetron.

The door latch is a safety interlock that prevents your microwave oven from doing what it is doing. The latch has failed and has to be replaced.

Door will not close without slamming


Possible causes - door switch, or door switch assembly out of adjustment; plastic latch guides on door switches worn; door hinge worn, causing door to be out of alignment. If it's the last one, the unit needs to be checked for microwave radiation.

Door catch broken - door will not close. no sign of a broken piece. There was a bang and the catch just doesn't hold at all. door swings open


Door catches.

One of the latches has broken off 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 a new door lever is 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.
I hope that helps.



Door switches

If one of the door interlock switches is not switching properly, that can cause the turntable/light to come on even though the "Starts" 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.

Dacor dcm 24s one broken safety door latch- door open button not


If the broken part is in the door, you will not have to pull the oven out of its place.

If the broken part is in the door open button area, you will have to remove the oven and take off the outer cover. Chances are it will be a broken "door open lever".

Assuming it's a door latch, you can use a thin strip of plastic to open the door.

It has to be somewhat firm but very flexible because it will have to bend at a right angle.

I have a flexible ruler I use for this.

You have to first shove the plastic strip into the crack between the door and the control panel frame about halfway up the door.

Then the strip will need to be maneuvered so it will bend to the left. Do this by pushing the rear end of the strip down as you continue to push it forward.

It may take a few tries.

Once you have it between the back of the door and the front seal of the cooking cavity, pull the strip straight and firmly up and it will lift the upper door latch and the door will open.

(If the upper latch is the one that's open, you have to start with the strip at the bottom edge of the door instead of the middle).

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

It will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly and troubleshooting tips, and the parts list is here.

Most computers will open these documents automatically, but you may need the free Adobe Reader.

You can order parts
here.

Once you have the door open, 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.

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