SOURCE: the door sticks on my microwave oven

Usually this is due to loosened mounts inside the oven. The mounts hold the door switches and grab the door hooks when it the door is closed. The solution is to realign and tighten the mount screws inside. It's less liekly, but it could be a weak or worn door open lever inside. I only advise people to work on a microwave if they're fully informed and aware of the deadly hazards and necessary precautions.

SOURCE: Stuck Microwave door

In most cases this is due to a broken door opening lever or loose or broken door latch / hook parts. They can only be accessed and examined if the cover is removed from the microwave. In many over the range models, you can access the door parts by removing the control panel assembly. Sometimes you may be able to get it open by pushing up gently on the bottom of the door while pushing the button, in case you need to empty it.

The door latch must have broken in side which had stucked the door does not allow to open. Please arrange to call service engineer from the maufacturer's service center to fix the problem as proper alignment of the latches is must for safety measures.

SOURCE: Panasonic Microwave Turn table rotates when door is open

Found this Panasonic post in the Samsung section!

If it moves just a tiny bit when the door opens and then stops, that's normal.

If it keeps running when the door is open, that's usually due to a bad door switch or broken / loose door switch mount.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: Can't open microwave door

It sounds like the push to open lever is cracked or broken. You have to remove the 'wrapper' to open the door manually from the inside to check the 'door keys' or door hooks to make sure that they are in tact. Then, check the door opening lever between the 'push to open button' and the lower door key.

Door release buton does not open the door


You can disassemble the microwave oven and check out the release mechanism. You'll find several hooks that hold the door closed and a linkage mechanism to the door opening button. There may be a broken piece of plastic or maybe just a loose or missing screw that holds linkage together. In the case of a broken plastic part, you can fix it with a 2-part epoxy adhesive, but you'll need to permanently splint across the break with a piece of metal or strong plastic that you've scavenged from somewhere. Before epoxying the splint in place, rough up all plastic surfaces where you want the epoxy to stick well.
Good luck.

How to fix the door button on panasonic microwave t6648fx?


Clean the inside edge of the door and oven where it contacts the door. Grease or oil is preventing the door to swing open.

Door button does not function for panasonic microwave=need to know how to take the face off so that I can fix it


Take side panels off and press the button through from the back, my husband has just done this tonight on our Panasonic microwave model NN-ST477 as the door would not open. He found a piece of plastic like a hook had snapped off. The door now opens and functions normally. Took about 30 minutes to do . If and when it becomes stuck again we know that we will need a new replacement button. Hope this helpskind regardsChristine

Won't whut off when open door


The microwave running with the door open can be dangerous.

It's most likely the switch in the door stuck in the closed position. Or it has failed/broken in the closed position.

Sometimes the switch is just a button sticking out of the cabinet where the door pushes on it when closed -- sometimes the door latch pushes on a switch inside the latch receiver in the cabinet.

If cleaning around that switch doesn't solve the problem, you should take it to a repair shop.

Spacemaker II door latch problem


Most microwave ovens have catches that are shaped like hooks, these hooks catch on a fixed bolt or a raise in the frame of the oven.

The next time you get the oven open check these hooks to see if the springs are working in a strong positive manner, or if you have to push a button on the model check to see that the button releases the hooks.

Hope this helps.

Door sticks


This is usually due to a grease buildup on the sides of the door open button or the frame that holds it.

It may also be a weak door button spring.

You'll need to remove the cover to see how the door open button works.

You can order parts here.

It is possible that the magnatron is bad but hard to say on a no heat problem without checking all components. A lot of model give 5-7 yr warranty on that part.
