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.

MICROWAVE TURNS ON WHEN DOOR IS OPENED.


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switches are most often damaged by opening the door while it's cooking (instead of pressing Stop / Clear first) or food
/ grease debris in the switch.

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