Question about Panasonic Microwave Ovens
Inspecting the door and latch components
Common problem. Apply a small dab of lithium grease to the tips of the door hooks. You might also have to adt. the door latch switch assembly inside the oven as it could be bent out of shape from the hard to close door.

SOURCE: Need door assembly diagram to
While I don't have that model's diagram,
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) here that demonstrates how it's done.
Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.
If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.
The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

Do you mean the part with hook-like projections that stick out of the door, or the part that holds the door switches inside the oven?
If you need to replace the door latches (the hook-like devices in the door) 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.
