Question about Panasonic Microwave Ovens
There is a spring inside the door that holds the latch (hooks) down.
The spring is connected by a little tab or loop on the back of this latch assembly and one on the inside of the inner door panel.
Usually the tab on the inner door panel is where the break occurs.
Disassembling the door and replacing the door panel is a big job.
If you or someone you know is a handyman, you can disassemble it and epoxy in a piece of material to replace the broken mounting tab / loop.
It must be squeaky clean and dry and you need to let the epoxy set up undisturbed for about 24 hours.
Normally 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.
