Depends on the door. It likely can be adjusted they have 2 screws on the door bracket you may have to remove the cover to see them. But it also needs to be checked with a leakage meter to make sure its not leaking.

RadioShack used to make a low cost meter not certified or anything but a good way to see if its leaking.

This should be fixed to prevent microwave leaking out. If you can not find a screw at a local hardware or appliance store look at;

SOURCE: My frigidaire microwave door is sagging and is about to fall off

EASY get a machine screw, nut with washer. I believe I used a 1/8" machine screw.....(find something small to fit in the hole on the bottom hinge.

First step, take 3 screws off bottom to expose hinge area. Have someone hold it or support it so wires to the light do not pull out,.

Pop the machine screw through the front and then with your fingers get the washer an nut and tighten down.
If you want the professsional look. Paint the machine screw white first with a enamel white paint.

The only choice I see is to contact a local metal or auto body repair shop to ask if they may heliarc weld the hinge for you. Good luck

Will not run unless hold door closed at bottom


First, replace the hinges. If that doesn't fix it, replace the door. Someone has leaned on the door and sprung either the door, or the hinges.

Microwave does not come on.....but when i hold up oven door a little it comes on.


Frigidaire microwave FMV156DSB. Turntable don't turn and no heat. Clock, keypad, light and fan works. The guys above looks like they right about either the door or the switches for the latch. This model does have two switches and a fusible switch. Pushing up a bit on the oven door from the bottom right corner when its closed make mine turn on if you set it to cook. Switches numbered 8(x2) on the schematic has part number 5304440026 $18.05. Fusible switch has part number 5303319559 $30.36. Have'nt changed them because it may be the door hinge is bent since the door latch is made out of plastic. Also looks like a real pain to take apart just to get to the switches. I will try to bend the door hinge to see if it fixes it. "And..now." -- Kirk, "Huh?" -- Scotty, "The doors, Mr. Scott." --Kirk, "Aye. I'm workin' on 'em."

FMV 156DSB Timer and light works, but does not heat unless you push up on bottom of door.


Slacken off the lower hinge screws and re set the door to the correct height, then tighten them back up.
That should sort that out.

I had the same problem. An easy fix is to remove the door by opening the door, take a screwdriver and pop the plastic retainer piece from just below top hinge on the door. Now lift the door gently and it will come off in your hands. Set aside and be careful not to let the loss bracket that passes into the microwave body fall back into the cabinet. I would suggest you use a small vice grip locked onto that bracket to keep from lossing it inside. You will see two holes, one near the top and bottom through the cabinet into the hinge. line these holes up with the hinge holes behind them and use a pop rivet gun and 3/16" rivets to lock into place. Then replace the door and retainer piece. If you only have 1/8" rivets you can hold the bracket lined up with the original holes and drill 1/8" holes of your own a little distance away from the original holes and then pop rivet through these holes.

Faceplate of door by lower L/H hinge cracked. How do I remove the door to replace the Faceplate?


Front doors are attached inside the microwave at the top and bottom of the oven cavity. Top case has to come off using, likely, security torx screw drivers.
Remove the top hinge.
Remove the bottom hinge.
Door falls off.
Replace the front panel of the door.
Reinsert the lower hinge with the door, close and latch the door.
Holding the door firmly to the microwave, tighten the door hinge. Replace the top hinge.
(On some units, both hinges need to be installed at the same time. Use masking tape to hold the lower hinge - makes it easier.)

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.
