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.

The 2 hooks(latch) inside the door have lost spring tension.


For no apparent reason, the latch broke on the 9187 ST. Take the door off of the microwave,which isn't too hard. Rotate the door to 90 degrees, lift up, and slide it to the left. Place the door on the counter, latch side up. Use a thin knife or screwdriver to lift the panel that covers the latch. It is very easy to remove it from the door. Then slide the latch up and lift is out. The spring is under the latch. The clip on the latch that held the spring was fractured. So, I drilled a tiny hole in the body piece from where the clip extended. I reattached the spring to the latch, replaced the panel, replaced the door, and it is as good as new.

The locker (latch) on my microwave broke. We just got the replacement part in the mail. Sears says we should be able to replace it ourselves. I see no screws to get inside the door. Does the plastic flange...


If there are no screws to hold the inside door cover in place then they are probably using snap or lock in tabs around the edges to hold it
in place. You will have to disassemble the door to replace the door latch. ----------
Its a latch spring assembly.-------- Click this link below and follow the door lock latch replacing procedure:---- http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/07/how-to-replace-door-lock-latch-on.html ------------------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Frigidaire wall bake oven (door opens with hinges on left) won't unlock after cleaning. Turned current off and back on with no results. Fan runs as in cleaning cycle, but door won't open.


If after self cleaning cycle the over door is not getting open.Then in some cases the door latch gets locked and this latch stops functioning so the door does not get open.In this case the front door assembly has to be disassembled and the door latch,it has to be manually triggered/pushed by a screw driver or any such object.So the door latch releases the door to get open.Then refit the parts and check,if the door latch is not functioning as it should be.Then the door latch assembly has to be replaced.After self cleaning,many a times the door latches gets overheated and its connections gets short internally.This is noticed by many other users too.In some cases door latch just gets blocked and triggering it with screw driver,makes it function properly.So disassemble the door and see the condition of door latch.This will help you to decide whether its just locked or got faulty.------------If its got faulty and you require door latch part,then you can get it from the online sites like www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect site.

The door will not latch


The latch head (with hooklike projections) have a spring to keep it pulled down. If the latch head can be easily pushed up and falls back freely, then the monting tab on the back of the latch head is broken and it will have to be glued or replaced. The new part is better. To get to the door screws inside, you have to remove the choke cover, as shown in the photo. You can order parts for Sharp models from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com.
