You may need to remove the microwave off the wall but lets try this first. Unplug the micro and then remove the screws around the bottom cover plate. The cover should drop down--watch the wiring to the light system mounted to the cover. Now look at the bottom hinge area. Can yo see and access the screws to the hinge??? Should be 2 or 3 screws. If you can get to them then you can change the hinge there. Tape the door in place so it doesn't drop while doing the repair. If you can't see the screws, you may need to pull the micro off the wall and remove the outer case to do the repair. In some rare cases the hinges are welded to the case and not replaceable.

The door on my bosch hmt8655gb wil not shut please can tell me the best way to repair rob


Door catches.

One of the latches may have broken off and is not lifting the other latch clear of the housing. Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. When a new door lever is in place, 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.

Faceplate of door by lower L/H hinge cracked. How do I remove the door to replace the Faceplate?


Front doors are attached inside the microwave at the top and bottom of the oven cavity. Top case has to come off using, likely, security torx screw drivers.
Remove the top hinge.
Remove the bottom hinge.
Door falls off.
Replace the front panel of the door.
Reinsert the lower hinge with the door, close and latch the door.
Holding the door firmly to the microwave, tighten the door hinge. Replace the top hinge.
(On some units, both hinges need to be installed at the same time. Use masking tape to hold the lower hinge - makes it easier.)

Door drops down 1/8' when open. To close need to


If the model number you have this listed under is correct, there is no adjustment. More than likely the door pivot and/or hinges are worn. They can easily be replaced, however. The part numbers are as follows:

Door Pivot - 8184922
Upper Door Hinge - W10114255
Lower Door Hinge - W10114254

You can find these parts at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in the model number and locate items 6, 8, and 13 under the "Door Parts" heading.

If you have questions about this repair, or have a different model number, please post back and let me know so that I may be able to provide better assistance. I hope this helps you.

LG Microwave Countertop Microwave Oven LRM2060 ST. The glass on the outside of the microwave door is broken. Can you order just the glass from somewhere and can I fix it myself?


Due to the serious potential for RF leakage, these doors are normally sold as a complete unit assembled by the manufacturer. I could only find the door listed at repairclinic.com for about $80. If you wish to repair yourself, the old door comes off by opening it all the way and lifting straight up at the hinges. The door will then lift off the hinge pins. Reinstall the door new door by aligning it with the hinge pins and allow it to seat straight down. A simple repair.

If you have any questions about this repair, or require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Replace door hinge on JVM1533WD002


Door Hinge replacement requires a Microwave Radiation Leak Test be performed after repairs.I am surprised they would sell you the part knowing this. You should have this repaired by a professional for SAFETY sake.
