It's better to get a 900 mm wide one simply because it will have to run at a lower speed to get the same suction effect. And imagine that you will have even the slightest air current in there - the fumes will be blow away from the hood a lot easier on the 700mm one.

Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies and Driver downloads (if applicable) as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

Microwave door will not close


PROBLEM, ROOT CAUSE: the METAL FLANGE holding the fixed latch and (3) interlock safety switches is about a thick as the metal in the screw cap on a glass bottle ... say 16 gauge or less.

The METAL FLANGE is thin, wing that has not support to prevent it from swinging like a door hinge. We use (2) of the microwaves everyday. One has never given the "DOOR CLOSE" will not operate problem. The 2nd microwave worked for two or three years. Then it was difficult to close ... and the panel gave the failure message ... "CLOSE THE DOOR."

I was able to use my thumb to press and remove 'dimples' into the metal. It was giving just a little more support than a 'say 10 vertical sheets of wet white copy paper.' We I bent it back to the proper alignment, the door closed and the switches worked. But after just a few cycles of OPEN & CLOSE, the switches would not let the microwave operate ... and the door began harder to close.

SOLUTION: To prevent or limit the movement of the METAL FLANGE, I used (2) connected loops of cable ties like a vertical suspender. The suspender prevents the METAL FLANGE from moving away from the center of the microwave.

1. Un-plug the power cord.

2. There are two methods to remove the case:

(a.) Turn the microwave on one side, the place a ruler beside one of the TORX (with center security pin) screws. Take a digital photo. Go to an auto parts sales office that sells a license plate kit with a kit (a TORX wrench with a drilled HOLE and many of the same TORX (with center security pin) screws.

(b.) Drill out the center security pin at each of the TORX (with center security pin) screws.

3. I used (2) each 12 inch long plastic cable ties. The width was less than 3/16" wide (so it would thread into two [~0.15 inch diameter] existing ventilation holes in the microwave).

4. I threaded one of the plastic cable ties thru a hole at the top, near the front, about one inch toward the center of the microwave.

5. I threaded the 2nd plastic cable tie thru a hole in the bottom, near the front, about 2" towards the center from the latch plate.

6. I formed a large loop with the bottom cable tie, very loose, do not tightened at this stage. I threaded the open end of the top cable tie thru the bottom cable tie loop.

7. THEN I carefully

(a) opened & closed the DOOR, WHILE

(b) watched the position of the METAL FLANGE

(c) AS I slowly tightened each of the large loops of cable ties.

(d) I repeated steps (a) to (c)

(e) I stopped tightening when the CABLE TIES LOOPS provided SOME support, AND the METAL FLANGE still have some hinge movement.

My Panasonic NN-SN797S door would not close. My solution has worked since about March 1st, 2013. Below is a photo from the factory manual. ebd9fdc7-5cb0-4461-ace5-77040f1420eb.jpg 1daa051e-ab7c-4ba9-a7ea-73605433272e.png

When I turn the micro on it does not turn nor heat unless I lift up on the door. Seems like door needs to be adjusted slightly


The problem you're seeing is nearly always a result of a safety switch that is not being activated by the door. The result is that the oven thinks the door is not shut fully. Pressing the door closed at the latch or downward from the top opposite of the hinges will usually provide enough movement to activate the switch. One of these methods is what I suspect you are doing to get it to work.

Inspect the prongs on the door. Make sure both are not damaged or broken in anyway. The size and shape are critical for effectively engaging the safety switch. Repair or replace parts as needed.

The switch itself is usually connected to the latch striker assembly or to a switch deeper inside the oven - to the latch itself - to detect its position. The striker assembly is partially visible behind the two openings of the door frame - the two prongs on the door push them down and when fully closed, keeps them down. Since accessing these parts requires disassembly of the oven by qualified persons to maintain safe operation - the oven should be service professionally to ensure that the door is closed completely before allowing the microwave to function.

I ordered and received a replacement door for my 2002 spacemaker ge microwave. The lady I spoke with said I would be able to install it myself. I figured there would be directions in the box explaining...


HELLO.

Below is the solution to replace your microwave door.

Unplug the oven from the outlet and/or shut off the gas valve. Open the old door completely and unlock the hinges by pushing the hinge out toward you and down toward the door. Slightly close the door and lift the door up and toward you.


Install the new door. Make sure the wall oven door hinges are aligned to go into the rectangular wall oven slots. Place the hinges into the slots. The hinges should "catch" on the slots comfortably.


Ensure the door is fully opened and push the hinge locks into an upright position. The two hinge locks should rest on top of the two hinges that are inserted in the wall oven slots.


Close the door and open it several times to make sure the door is properly opening and closing. Replug the oven back into the outlet and/or turn the gas valve back on.

Thanks.

Hi,i have a lofra max maxima oven and my stove,which i control by touch isnt responsing to me.please is there any solution?


Here is something to try:

This is from Lofra manuals

It's possible to lock the selected functions by keeping the "Key" button pressed . An acoustic

and flashing warning will activate whenever any changes to programmed function are tried to be

made. By activating this function it's possible to switch the Electronic Module off while the

function controls remain active. To deactivate the lock keep the "Key" button pressed a second
time.

If you still have your owners manual look up child lock. If you do not have a manual and the oven door is unlocked I really need a model number.
Thanks,
Kelly

Hello,

Usually, the door lever or hinges is the cause of this type of problem.

But in this case, I don't think the door lever or hinge is the cause of your problem.

I think the door is jammed and only needs some force before is can open or unjam.

Use your hands or a flat Philips screw driver to forcefully open the door. Don't apply too much force. Just apply a reason amount of force that could open the oven door.

Before you attempt to forcefully open the microwave door, leave it for about 45mins to 1hr, after that forcefully open the door.

If the above doesn't help to open the door, please let me know so that I can direct you further.

I wish you good luck.

Regards.












Mine does this occasionally, and it's because the door hinges have got a bit out of line, allowing the door to drop slightly, so the catch mechanism won't quite disengage.
Look along the bottom edge of the door and see if it has dropped lower than the front panel next to it. Try applying a bit of upward pressure on the bottom edge with your fingers, while pulling towards you at the same time, and with your other hand press the release button.

If that gets it open, remove last night's failed meal, open the door fully and carefully force it up a bit at a time, to bend the hinges back to level - keep pushing the door back so it nearly closes, and look at the bottom edge to check on progress. When the bottom of the door looks level with the panel , try closing it fully and see if the release button will open it again.

Good luck!

Electrolux oven door strained and wont close properly


Don't try to run a microwave oven with a bad door. At a minimum, you probably need to replace the door hinge plates. Unplug the oven and remove the top/bottom cover. Study the hinges and door to see how they come apart.

When you have the door back on and adjusted so it closes flat against the frame all around, take it to an appliance dealer who sells microwave ovens (you can leave the screws out of the cover and take them along in a plastic bag or other container). Have the service tech check for microwave leakage. If it is clean, you can fasten the cover and put the oven back in service. If you have leakage around the door, you may have to readjust the hinges, or the door itself is warped and must be replaced.

The door closes but not firmly their is still movement when fully closed


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.
