SOURCE: Spacemaker II door latch problem
Most microwave ovens have catches that are shaped like hooks, these hooks catch on a fixed bolt or a raise in the frame of the oven.
The next time you get the oven open check these hooks to see if the springs are working in a strong positive manner, or if you have to push a button on the model check to see that the button releases the hooks.
Hope this helps.

The problem I had experienced with the Door not opening easily will be resolved by removing the micowave oven top cover with a tamper proof torx head, replacing the door switch and reinstalling the top cover.

Clean the door swith housings and re align the door.
That should do it, any other problems will become apparent when you examine the door switch holders.

You can remove the control panel assembly, then you'll be able to see the door opening parts.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
The Dacor PCOR30 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-1874, so the relevant Sharp service manuals (here and here) will help you with disassembly if you need more help.
The Sharp manuals will not have the proper Dacor part numbers.
For that, see the Dacor PCOR parts list here.
Our favorite place to order Dacor parts is by part number from the Pros here.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
