Question about Danby DMW139 Microwave Oven

Door won't open

When trying to open the door by pushing on the rectagular button, there is no resistance and the mechanism inside has obviously broken. How can I open the door without causing too much damage? There's a container full of milk in there and would like to get it out before bringing the micorwave back to the store.

Im sorry to say, but the housing will have to come off to unlatch the door from the inside.Not difficult ,Unplug the unit and remove all of the screws around the top of the housing cover if any,also
rear and both sides will have to come out.When they have all been removed, lift the rear of the top housing cover and pull back.You will be able to see where the two door latches are locked in place.With a screwdriver,you can push up on the bottom latch and the door will open. All this can be done without spilling the milk inside.Just slide the microwave around slowly to get to the screws.The broken part inside should be able to be replaced.Contact repair parts center.

Wolf Microwave model MW24. How do I repair door problems?


Microwave doors are very important have contact switches that switch off if open or damaged. Interfearing with the door could lead to serious injury. The best way to sort doors tha wont open or close is to replace with old doors of the same make that does not have the same problem.

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.

I have a Panasonic Model #NN-S255 microwave oven. The button you push to open the door does not open the door. It's like there is no resistance when you push the button therefore it does not push up...


Hello,To get the door open and salvage your dinner, take a long thin blade ( I used a frosting spreader) and insert from the bottom between the door and the oven frame on the side with the latches (usually next to the control panel). You may have to pry the bottom of the door open just a bit. The object is to push up the lower door latch (which is connected to the upper door latch) and manually open the door. You may have to try a few times but this worked perfectly for me and saved dinner. Obviously the door latch needs to be repaired but this solves the immediate problem of dinner being held hostage by a recalcitrant microwave.
wish you good luck,
take care.

I HAVE A PANASONIC NNSS277S OVER THE RANGE MICROWAVE AND THE PUSH BUTTON WILL NOT OPEN FOR THE DOOR PLS HELP


IMHO this is an expensive microwave and it is pretty poor that the door mechanism is so weak considering that it gets constant stress from opeing and closing the door and especially since the part that breaks is integral to the expensive control panel. I have the same problem with my microwave after only 2 1/2 years of use. After some fiddling I got it apart as follows. Remove the three screws that hold on the top grille (above the door) on and lift off the grille. Turn off the power to the microwave at the switch panel. Remove the two screws above the control display that are now visible after removing the top grille. Do NOT pry this panel off, slide it upwards to unlatch the hooks and lift it off carefully. There are a lot of wires which you will have to unplug (note their locations although none of the plugs are interchangeable) and separate the panel from the microwave. You can now check the latch itself and open the door by putting your finger under the lift latch and genly pushing upwards. If the door won't open the problem is in the latch mechanism which can be removed by taking out the two screws on the inside of the case an unplugging the many wires (note locations, a couple of them can be plugged back in the same place). If the problem is the same as the one I had it is in the actualy release button assembly where one of the brackets are broken. You will either have to replace the whole display & control panel or glue the bracket back together. I'm in the process of trying to glue it with epoxy but I can't vouch for how reliable the repair will be. Remove the screws that secure the control panel metal reinforcement and unplug the flat cable then remove it carefully. If either of the plasting pivot brackets moves it is broken. With the metal plate removed the problem should be obvious.

Stuck Microwave door


In most cases this is due to a broken door opening lever or loose or broken door latch / hook parts. They can only be accessed and examined if the cover is removed from the microwave. In many over the range models, you can access the door parts by removing the control panel assembly. Sometimes you may be able to get it open by pushing up gently on the bottom of the door while pushing the button, in case you need to empty it.
