Question about Microwave Ovens
I would say you have a broken "release lever". This is the internal part which the release button pushes to open your door.
With the door not opening, you will have to remove the outer wrapper / cover, then you can see the works behind the control panel.
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: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 but your exact model is not shown here.
But the info will be close enough to help you or someone you know check it, then you can call the supplier referenced at the link above to ask directly about your needed part(s).
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
