You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If the door seal is damaged or out of alignment, there is a chance of leakage, which can cause burns, damage to the oven or even a fire hazard.

SOURCE: Our microwave will not cook when the door is

please dont even try this, fix it yourself job!!! yes it is an easy fix!! if you know what you are doing,, but if you dont know what you are doing,,,, well to be blunt,
you could just be finding a fast way of killing yourself!
even with the power plug pulled out the wall scocket and stood on a rubber mat!!! just one tuch across the capacitor and you could very well grow wings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
do you realy wont to die??? call the guy back to fit a new micro switch in the door lock as its set back deep in side the unit and its a cheep part as well
but just like all fixes,,, its not the parts you pay for,
its knowing how to fit them in that costs you so much
this not knowing could cost you your life???????
play it safe,, please,,

Testimonial: "Thank you for your input! I did not know about the capacitor and how lethal it could be. I'm glad that I asked before attempting the repair! Thanks"

SOURCE: door sags and is out

If there are any screws right where the door connects then they shouldnt be loose. If you can lift the door up and then close it you probally just have a couple of screws loose LOL! If not then you might have broke the pin inside the door. Either way it should be fixed before you have water damage. Hope it helps let me know what happens. Thanks

Repairing the loose, detached hinge is simple.
First buy a pop rivet tool and 1/8'' or 3mm rivets for about $16 at lowes
Second remove the door. There is a little plastic pop tab on the inside top corner of the door by the hinge that keeps the door from lifting off of the hinge pins. Use a 1 inch putty knife or maybe a butter knife and pry from the bottom crack. Once tab is off the entire door can be lifted off.
Third, line up the little holes in the bracket with the little holes in the microwave face. Insert a pop rivet in the hole and squeeze the tool till it pops off. I put one 3mm rivet on the top hinge and one on the bottom.
No drilling needed on my Fridgidaire PLMV169DCd microwave. I guess u could drill a 1/8'' hole thru the microwave face and the hinge bracket if there isn't one on your model.

How do a fix a Westinghouse fridge door that has dropped slightly


Hinge screws probably loose. Refrigerator doors have hinges screwed on the outside. The hinges allow for you to move door to be level, loosen screws, move door level and hold it there till you tighten screws. Sometimes the hinges are covered with a plastic piece that you pry gently up on to remove.

Driver door won't close 1999 ford contour


Drivers side door will not close because, it might have dropped out of alignment and is sagging down slightly!!! or if it has electric door locks, and someone in the family has failed to mention door locks were activated while that one door was still open!!! now lock mechanism has passed it's normal stopping place and is now stuck, therefore already locked and not allowing door to close all the way!! you might try disconnecting battery then try jiggling the lock, and hope silenoid didn't get burned out, open passenger door and look at lock latch, then check drivers side lock latch!!! if your lucky lock latch should unlock when battery is hooked back up. i have seen this problems happen often on older vehicles!!! especially on cars or trucks that have been in fender benders.........body shops know what to check for, they fix problems like this often!!!!! Good luck!!

Top door drags on the side just before it closes


sometimes these dooors tend to sag, the hinges cant take as much as the manufacturer claimes,
you can loosen the top hing screws,,,
JUST LOOSEN DO NOT REMOVE
with the upper hing loose you should be able to left the door slightly on the corner it drags, ther ewont be much room but you should get enough play to allow the door to close properly
once lifted tighten in place
might need a hand

Same - the counter counts down, but doesn't cook.


Yes your door isnt aligning right when closed and the lower interlock isnt being made when shut. Look and see if where the door pivots if it is broke or sagging down.

Garage door chain is sagging


If the chain is adjusted properly the chain will sag slightly on one side when the door is closed and on the other side when it is open. It should not sag enough that it is dragging on the T-rail. You can adjust it at the trolley. If you over tighten it you will hear a clicking sound when the opener opens or closes.
