Your DOOR LEVER probably is broken. To open the door remove the filter (2 screws at the top) then remore the control panel by removing the screw holding it in place UNPLUG THE MACHINE. then unlatch the door. BUT I am trying to find a door lever and find they are no longer availabel.

If you have decided not to repair the unit, I would buy the door from you, I need one for my microwave that is otherwise working fine but the plastic doorframe is broken.

I have a Panasonic microwave. It is Model NN-T774SF. It has an inverter. The latch on the door will not close. Is it worth the cost of repair?

This is usually a pretty simple fix.

The spring has probably become disconnected from the door latch head assembly or inner door panel.

If so, you can either order a replacement for the broken part, or install a small screw into the broken part, reinforce it with epoxy, and then reassemble everything.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the parts involved.


Or you can watch a
YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

This is actually a one-year-old Panasonic Inverter NN H965WFX 1250 watt microwave. The light inside flickers and staggers a bit, and the microwave does not heat or cook properly. The first time this...

Inside is a screen which sometimes arc. These are normally available from the dealers and is not very expensive. Microwaves are dangerous and repairs are better left to trained people.

My Panasonic NN-CS596S cuts out after nearly 40 secs on the microwave program, and then displays the H98 code. My contract with the Gas Board provides a call- out engineer, he has changed the Magnatron,...

It should be worth having it looked at. The magnetron is the most expensive part to replace, since it is new I would have it looked at it might just be a door or interlock switch(cheap fix). Here is a link for DIY's there are also videos on testing each component at

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.

Light, fan and timer work but microwave does not

Microwaves are pretty much a non repair item. It will cost you more to fix than it would to replace.

My microwave turns on when the door is openned.

UNPLUG AND DONT USE you have a bad or wet control board . if you gave cleaned the keypad in the last day or so , it might dry out in a few days ......if not it just went bad . most control boards are between 130.00 and 160.00 without looking up your oven ... so in most cases its not worth the repair
