This is a problem with the control panel assembly, which we repair nationwide for $39.95. This is usually caused by not disconnecting the microwave from the power line when removing or installing a bulb or by the filaments shorting when the bulb blows. If you decide to send it for service, we have *critical* safety and disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Mmmm it's so easy,
First disconect the power, take the cover off, moslitly there would be 5 screws and two tab's on the top.
inside on the right hand side the magnetron it's a sylver box measuring about 4 in x 4 in x 5 in. It will have a plasic cover moslitly that would have to be remove first then on the magnetron there is 4 crews and one connector.
It should fall downard after.
If you have a power supply after the secondary , that may also be your problem.

Clean out the cabinet above the micro wave and you will find 2 or 3 bolts that secure the unit (MW) to the bottom of the cabinet. They will normally be towards the front of the cabinet.
I always put a towel or cardboard over the surface of the range for protection and a place to set the MW once it is ready to come down.
Have someone either hold the MW up by putting pressure upwards on the front of the MW or take the screws out. (don't forget to unplug the MW)
Gently let the front of the MW fall forward about 6" to 8" and lift the back of the MW upwards and it will release from a mount that is attached to the wall.
You may feel a little resistance as it might be duct taped to the exhaust going up or out the back.
Be aware that these older micro waves can be a little heavy and it is recommended that 2 people are used to do this.

you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking
out of the door)
there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring
is off inside.
Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.
If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.
The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
We have critical safety & disassembly info at our site.
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here 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.
