NEED TO REPLACE THE WHITE PLASTIC CATCH ON NEXT TO THE CONTROL PANEL AS IT SNAPPED OFF AS MY SON SLAMMED THE DOOR

Hi,

My 6 yr old son in a rage slammed the microwave door and in doing so broke the microwave the closing device. The male black plastic peg on the door that inserts into the main unit should lock into the white plastic retainer. However the door slamming caused this white palstic retainer to shear hence the door no longer locks into position and the unit no loner powers up. I need to replace this white plastic retainer. Do you know what the part number is and how do i remove the control panel to fit it?? Many many thanks Gary

By the nature of the oven main face plate and the locking latch being attached to the safety system the replacement cost is usually higher than a replacement microwave oven.

In your case replacing the microwave with another one is more sensible. Your oven is an obscure model as it is, I'd suggest a sharp brand.

You will need to remove microwave to access casing, remove casing and check door micro-switch. The switch activator will need adjusting to enable door interlock to activate.

How to replace a circuit board/timer of lg refrigerator lfx25980st, remove the old and putting a new one.


Hi, I will try my best to explain this repair. The light cover inside the fresh food/top section needs to be removed. Grab the light lens on the edge farthest from the door and pull downward. There are 2 tabs that need to be released. Now you will need to use a flat blade and pry the next section off. Start from the front and work you way back. It will appear to be impossible but it will snap off.
Once you get this section free, you will need to loacte the timer board case. It is a plastic box that snaps into place. Good ole plastic right?
PLEASE make sure the refrigerator is unplugged before you replace this board.
I hope this helps you. I just changed one last week and it was frustrating mainly because I thought the plastic was gonna break.
Please let me know if my instructions helped you or if I can assist you furtether.

How do you change interior 20 w lamp?


remove the 3 screws on the vent above the door. Next unplug the oven from the power source.Next you will see a single silver screw above the control panel..remove it and slide the control panel upward and out. This will give you access to the lamp socket...turn it left or right and pull slightly ...you can now unscrew and replace the bulb....It was my exp that the lamp got loose in the socket from slamming the door after about a year, and I only had to tighten the bulb..Hope this solves the problem...Jerry

Black plastic catch on door snapped off, need new part


Yes. That's the door latch.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.


Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

No power


That would probably be a bad secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount.

We have the full service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

Microwave not cooking


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Replacing the door catch


If you're talking about a hook-like device that sticks out of the door and goes into a hole in the chassis of the microwave (or any other internal part of the door for that matter) you'll have to take the door apart. Brands and models vary, but some use screws which are obvious, and others use hidden hooks similar to the ones in the drawing I've added to this post. If you can post or e-mail photos of the area where the part goes, we may be able to translate our experience with other brands to yours.
