Question about Electrolux Microwave Ovens
I have had to remove the doors to clean them-the bar that holds the double doors in is pop riveted. I can't get the serial number, as it's been worn off. The main oven door is on hinges with torx screws. That's not the problem-the upper oven has door hinges that I can't re-install-they keep snapping back! No YouTube videos help. Edit-do0ne it. Lever the hinges back, then move the locking clip back into the door. Push the door into the cooker in a shut position, so the hingtes locate. Open. Push forward locking clips.

SOURCE: Removing the microwave door
In many cases, microwave door panels are held together by hidden hooks or catches that ave to be separated by a thin, strong tool such as a putty knife. I've attached a photo that should serve as a good example.

You can order parts online by entering your full model number (without dashes) here: http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/epartr Chances are the panels separate as shown in the photo I have attached below. Panel replacement can usually be done without removing the door from the microwave. In cases where it is felt that door removal is necessary, I recommend detaching the door from the hinges. I generally do not advise removing the hinges from the microwave. Whenever the hinges are removed, great care must be taken to put them back in the very same position they were in. Failure to do so can cause microwave leakage, which can cause risk of skin burns, fire, and disruption nearby electronic devices. If you still have questions, please feel free to follow up. I appreciate your thoughtful ratings to my reply.

Sometimes they may be dirty and will respond to cleaning, but in some cases, the actual plastic may yellow and the only remedy is to replace it.
The manual just says to take the two screws out, but doesn't refer to their being anything unusual. I would assume they're small Philips.
But if you're unsure of what kind of tool to use, can you post a photo of the screw head and maybe we can tell.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

One of the latches may be bent/misaligned
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.
