Frigidaire microwave door is sagging


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

My Frigidaire microwave door is sagging and about to fall off


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

MICROWAVE DOOR SAGS CAUSING IT NOT TO OPERATE


I just repaired a different brand of microwave a few weeks ago with the same problem and all it ended up being was some loose screws on the bottom hinge. Take your plate out and then turn your microwave on it's back and see it there are screws in the hinge area and make sure they are tight. If they are, then it might be the upper hinge that is loose and you would have to take off the outside cover to reach those screws and more than likely you would need a special torx screwdriver to get those screws out. If you have access to that kind of screwdriver, just be careful when you take the cover off and put it back on that you get all of the clips back in the right place so that the cover goes back on correctly. Always remember to unplug your microwave if you are going to take the cover off.

FMV 156DSB Timer and light works, but does not heat unless you push up on bottom of door.


Slacken off the lower hinge screws and re set the door to the correct height, then tighten them back up.
That should sort that out.

Can I buy a new door. Current door is cracked on the corners.


You easily replace the door on most microwave ovens by opening the door all the way up and lifting straight up at the hinges. The door should lift off of the hinge pins. On some microwave ovens, you may have to remove the upper grill cover over the door (if equipped) to accommodate door removal.


NOTE: Some doors have a hinge pin that needs to be removed, or screws holding the door in place at the hinge.


There are several parts sources available that you can may try to purchase replacement parts:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites on the list also offer helpful exploded view parts listings to aid in parts identification and location. Just type in your model number and locate the parts listing for the door. Some manufacturers only sell the door as a complete assembly. Others may sell individual parts. To save money, you may also try just purchasing the door facing parts that are cracked. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this advice is helpful.

My microwave door sags to the right from the top hinge. The microwave is a Sharp R-930CS. How do I adjust this?


The only adjustment is by removing the outer cabinet and examining the hinge side will be self explanitary.
Beware that the door must close squarely and if it is very mal adjusted will take out the mains fuse!

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.)

Handle broke off, model # khhs179Lss-4, wna to


The door handle can easily be replaced without the assistance of a repairman. This is a common problem with some microwave oven doors.
If you have not purchased a new door handle yet, the part number is 8205431 (White), 8205433 (Black), 8205432 (Biscuit) or 8185456 (Stainless). A new one can be purchased at pcappliancerepair.com for about $40-46. Make sure you order using the correct part number to ensure you get the right color.

To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

This repair can be done with the door in place, or you can remove it for easier access. If you decide the remove the door, simply open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

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

NOTE: Some doors have a small hinge pin that has to be removed in order to remove the door.

Kenmore Microwave door adjustment


Depends on the door. It likely can be adjusted they have 2 screws on the door bracket you may have to remove the cover to see them. But it also needs to be checked with a leakage meter to make sure its not leaking.

RadioShack used to make a low cost meter not certified or anything but a good way to see if its leaking.
