If the switches are good (test & order info here), and it's a Kitchenaid / Whirlpool of recent design (by L.G.) then they have more than one fuse inside.

There will be a fuse associated with the door circuit which will cause this problem, but not render the oven "dead".

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find your mini-manual, or if you want to look at it before removing the controller, you can download it here (just enter your model number).
You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Door will not open


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I see that the door on your Frigidaire microwave will not open. Sounds like your door latch could be faulty. I would recommend performing a reset on your microwave and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If your door does not open after the power has been restored you may want to contact a professional for proper repairs. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

The door of the microwave is not opened correctly


It's hard to say what could be wrong, You did not provide the Make or Model of your Microwave. Generally the latching mechanism is mechanical in nature. The latch if made of plastic could have broken, there could be a spring or a lever out of place. the movement could just have some food that got in there and "gummed up" the works.

The only way to truly figure out what the problem is is to pull the cover off and inspect it.

Fan goes on when we open the door. Goes off when we close the door. Any fixes?


This is a malfunction and must be checked to confirm if the microwave itself is working when the door is open which is dangerous. The reason can be due to a short in the door lock switch or a mis-alignment of the door switch. Also a malfunction of the main board, relay cannot be ruled out.Remove power and close the door with a gentle force , few times so as to disengage any lock switch defect. now try if the fan cuts off or else it is best to take opinion as you will need to disconnect the HT section to check this fault to prevent any stray microwave.

NN-T774 INVERTER STOPPED WORKING AFTER 4 WEEKS


Check to make sure one of the plastic hooks on the door was not broken off. If both door hook latches are functional then the most likely cause of your problem is one of the latch switches located behind the control panel. These switches will fail if the oven user opens the door frequently BEFORE the cook cycle ends. Always push STOP/RESET before opening any microwave oven door.

MICROWAVE WILL NOT HEAT. F9 APPEARS IN THE DISPLAY WINDOW


F9 indicates a problem with the door latch.  There is a safety switch that will not allow the microwave to operate if it detects the door is not closed properly.  Even though physically it may seem the door is shut, the safety switch is not relaying the message to the onboard computer.  You need another door latch switch.

Panasonic - convection/microwave oven door is stuck shut spring will not open same -dinner in oven help


What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be
removed.

Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

You can order Panasonic parts here.
