I understand that you are unable to open the door on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FMV156DC. Due to this being a microwave, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your particular appliance and should be able to get the door open without any damage to the appliance, or harm to you or your home. Hope this is helpful.
This sounds like a common primary interlock switch. Need to check and or replace both door switches. DISCHARGE high voltage components first with no power applied prior to
touching anything in the unit. Failure to discharge High Voltage
Components can result in death
This is more helpful as on page 20 it includes illustrated instructions for removing the charcoal filter to change the oven light. Disconnect from power, remove the ventilation grate at the top to access the charcoal filter, slide back and lift to remove. With the grate removed carry out any required cleaning.
The door handle can easily be replaced on most microwave ovens by removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and replace the door handle:
The average cost for a replacement handle usually averages about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided. If the model number you have this question listed under is correct, the part number for a replacement handle is 5304440323.
If you have any questions, please post back with your complete model number (if different than the one listed) and let me know. I hope this helps you.
Almost all microwave ovens manufacturers locate the handle mounting screws behind the inner black plastic frame known as the 'choke'. If done very carefully, the choke can be removed with a putty knife without breaking it. My suggestion would be to order a handle and a choke. HOWEVER ordering a complete door will be less aggravation and not a lot more money. The handle and choke will cost around $120.00 whereas a complete door goes for around $130.00.
