When I press the button to open myMicrowave it starts to run. It did this for I week. Today I did the same thing push the bottom to open the door it open but nothing happen meaning no light on or nothing....


There are several switches (usually 3) located and attached to the door latch area of the microwave. One is a safety interlock that keeps the Micro from running with the door open. At first one of the switches were sticking slightly giving you the attempted run. Then enough stuck to cause the safety to sense it. The safety usually will blow the internal fuse or house breaker. If you are going to get it fixed, best to replace all the door switches and then the fuse also. If by chance it still blows the fuse again you have other problems. At this point I think its just the door switches and fuse.

Why will door not open


Hi,
This happens when the latch hook loosens up and moves so that the door will not open when you press the button.
It's a very easy fix, but should be done by a repair person so that the door can be adjusted propery and no microwaves escape.

I have a F6 error on my Kitchenaid microwave, model number KHMS155LSS. I unplugged it for 5 minutes. Nothing changed. I closed the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Nothing changed. If I plug it in, it...


F6 on these models means that the cook relay on the control circuit board is shorted, and it is cooking anytime the door is closed.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid with a one-year guarantee.

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.

If you prefer, you can buy a new circuit board (part number 8169733 for $150.27) from the Pros
here.

They're our favorite supplier.

Door open button is broken, door will not open


door button mechanism is all behind the control panel.
there should be a couple screws holding the control panel on, you can see them when you open the door i believe.
you probably need to slide it one way or another to get it to unhook from its hidden catches..
there is the outer button you press with your hand thats available in 3 colors depending on your model #, and then the inner latch..
it will need to be checked to verify which parts are broken..
hope this helps,
best of luck,
ttfn

I cannot open the door of my Panasonic NN-T543W microwave


Well do not pry the door open since there is an easier remedy which will lead you in the direction that you need to fix your problem. Take the cover off after you disconnect the power to it. Once you have taken the cover off (only a few screws) you will be able to see the two latches that hold the door closed and the link that opens both of them. You can just lift both latches at the same time and it will open. After you have done that take a good look and press in on the open door button and you will see where you have the problem of the door hanging. That button should push a linkage that pushes up on both latches at once to open the door. It is spring loaded so that it comes back down so that when you close the door it will hold the door closed. Anyway that is where your problem is. Let me know if you need more hlep.

Door was closed after the latch was broken. Now I cannot open the door. Help


What usually breaks is the door open lever.

Or the rear of the door open button and the face of the lever may be worn.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this.

On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be
removed.

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.

Please unplug the oven first.

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.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

Then you can contact Bosch at the number or site listed in the owner's manual to ask them about ordering spare parts.

If you don't have your manual, I would contact the manager at the dealer where you purchased it to ask them for Bosch contact information.

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number at the Sears parts site, but the best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics. You can also call them at 866-779-5835.

Microwave seems to turn on when door latch is opened


What's happening is you are activating one door switch a little before the other, and that is causing your light, fan, and turntable to come on. The plastic parts are not perfectly rigid, so they flex a little when you press the button, and that causes the lag to be more apparent. Even if you press the door open faster and look really close, you may notice the light, fan, and turntable coming on for a split second. That's perfectly normal. The relay on the control board must also be turned on before it will actually be cooking.
