Question about Microwave Ovens
Frigidaire Professional Series over-range microwave - model PLMV169DCD. First one then the other hinge came undone and now the door hangs askew, when open. Is the problem loosened screws or broken welds? Is this something that I might be able to fix myself? If so, how? Thanks!

I had the same problem. I removed the door and used a rivet tool. I checked to make sure the door cleared the rivet head, which was nearly flat, so there would not be any microwave leakage.

I had the same problem. An easy fix is to remove the door by opening the door, take a screwdriver and pop the plastic retainer piece from just below top hinge on the door. Now lift the door gently and it will come off in your hands. Set aside and be careful not to let the loss bracket that passes into the microwave body fall back into the cabinet. I would suggest you use a small vice grip locked onto that bracket to keep from lossing it inside. You will see two holes, one near the top and bottom through the cabinet into the hinge. line these holes up with the hinge holes behind them and use a pop rivet gun and 3/16" rivets to lock into place. Then replace the door and retainer piece. If you only have 1/8" rivets you can hold the bracket lined up with the original holes and drill 1/8" holes of your own a little distance away from the original holes and then pop rivet through these holes.

Hello Irfan, thank you for your post!
From the information you have provided the door on your Frigidaire microwave is sagging. Your door could be sagging due to the hinges or the door being damaged. I would check to make sure there is no visible damage. It is possible that the hinges and door may need to be replaced as well. To help avoid any unnecessary part purchases you may need to seek assistance from a professional technician for proper repairs. -Matt

I appreciate your post, Wayne!
From my understanding your Frigidaire microwave door is sagging and about to fall off. This could be an issue with your hinges or door. In order to check if you hinges are not damaged you may need to disassemble your microwave this is not a simple DIY job. I would highly recommend having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid personal injury, future problems, or unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful for you. -Matt
