Viking Microwave door latch


Try pushing in on the door while pressing the door release latch;
Also, try pushing the door latch and reach under the front edge of the door and slightly pull as the latch is depressed.
Third option is use a suction cup, maybe from a GPS device on the glass portion of the door, pulling on it while you depress the door latch....let me know any problems or if I can help anymore.

I have a Salton micorwave oven (MW-2027P). The timer works but the cook setting will not start. There is also no light on the inside when I open the door.


I had this exact same problem with my salton microwave! Even tried taking it back to the store, but with no reciept there was little they could do. Anyways try jiggling the clasps on the side of the the door, the ones that connect it to the microwave. Mind you don't jiggle too hard. Now firmly close the door, you should hear a distinct click. Now try it! The light only works when the microwave is on. The microwave won't work unless the door is closed properly and my problem was the claps were stuck! I hope this helps.

JVM1330 microwave only works when holding door handle toward us


You should first check your door switch mounts. My help file on door switches is here.

If that's not it, I would suspect that you have a shorted main relay on your control board, which i can repair. Details here.

FixYa doesn't notify me when there's a response, so if you have other questions, please contact me directly.

How can it come on-but not really?


This is usually a bad door switch or door switch mount.

If it's less than one year old, it's under warranty and you should contact Frigidaire to get it fixed free.

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

We appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
