Is an oven door that swings upward obsolete? I currently have a Frigidare Custom Imperial Flair oven, installed in 1964 ,that needs replacing. I can't believe this type door has been abandoned! These doors have been admired by many.

Hi, you should know that you can never (am not discouraging you, but it's the fact) find the replacement part for a 1964 installed oven any where in the market except you want to contact Frigidaire and you may be lucky they help you construct a replica but believe such service will be very expensive.
Take care

The microwave door seems to be loose. The door will remain shut, but the light is on in the microwave and it won't run until I push upwards on the door. How can I tighten the door hinge?


you need a door interlock switch bracket adjustment; or, possibly one of the microswitches replaced on that bracket. it is behind that control panel.

How to replace door handle on microwave frigidare fmv156dcc


You will need to access the door handle mounting screws and remove it to replace the door handle. To access the screws on MOST microwave ovens, you must remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. This can be accomplished by using a small screwdriver or putty knife to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass to pop the panel loose. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that shields you from harmful microwaves.

With the inner panel removed, the door handle screws are visibile and easily be accessed with a screwdriver. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place and seats properly.

This repair can be done with the door in place, or you can remove it for easier access. If you decide the remove the door, open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. On some microwaves, you may have to remove the upper grill cover over the door (if equipped) to accommodate door removal. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Went to turn on the mic and heard a pop and now no power. think i blew a fuse. changed it and same thing all over again. any ideas???


I had the same thing to happen to our microwave oven. I went and replaced the fuse in it. Power came back on. Then I tried to pop some popcorn in it. 30 seconds after it started, it made a vibrating noise and shut off. It took the fuse but not the curcuit breaker. The microwave is 14 years old. I have just come to the conclusion that there is buildup all inside the motor parts and that it needs to be replaced. The instruction manuel mentions to replace the monitor switch when replacing the fuse. Since I lost the manuel a long time ago, I asked at Lowes and noone knew what that was....I since found out that it was a safety device installed on the microwave oven so that if the door was not shut completely or was out of alignment, it would throw the fuse. Anyway, I am happy with the service we got with this microwave. It has been through several slammed doors and lots of use. We have been very satisfied with our Frigidare Microwave. It has held up well.
