What usually breaks is the door open lever.

You'll need to remove the outer cover to see the problem.

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.

Open door if latch is broken


And you can't just pull the door open? I know it's easier to push the open door button but both ways should work unless the safety switch bracket moved from it's intended position. I hesitate to offer this solution, but who wants decayed food smelling up the home? Let's assume it's a counter top oven, remove all cover screws and the cover. STAY AWAY FROM ALL WIRING and I should have said first unplug the power from the appliance. Locate the door latch area and lift up on the plastic/metal bar that has a spring attached to it and the door should be released. Pushing the door release button should lead you to the latch. Once you see how it works you may find the reason the latch is malfunctioning. If it's a over the range type you will have to remove a grill at the top of the oven to access the mounting screws that release the oven from the bracket but the latch reference above will apply to this type as well.

Viking Microwave door latch


Try pushing in on the door while pressing the door release latch;
Also, try pushing the door latch and reach under the front edge of the door and slightly pull as the latch is depressed.
Third option is use a suction cup, maybe from a GPS device on the glass portion of the door, pulling on it while you depress the door latch....let me know any problems or if I can help anymore.

Door latch


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Open Lever If the microwave door won't open the open lever might be broken. This part can be replaced separately.

Door Spring If the microwave door won't open the door spring may have broken. The door spring is located inside the door and keeps downward pressure on the door hook.

Door Latch If the microwave door won't open the door latch might be broken. The door latch is inside the microwave. The door hook, which is part of the door, engages with the latch to keep the door closed during operation. If the door latch or actuator breaks the door may not open.

Door Hook If the microwave door won't open the door hook might not be releasing properly. The door hook is installed inside the door and normally releases when the door is opened. The hook is made of plastic and will break over time. When this happens it will need to be replaced, it can't be repaired.

Button Spring If the microwave door won't open the button spring might be broken internally. The button spring can be replaced.
Button If the microwave door won't open the button might be broken internally. The button can be replaced.

Handle Actuator If the microwave door won't open the handle actuator might be broken. This is a plastic part which can become brittle over time. This part is connected between the door button and the door latch assembly.

Hello,

Usually, the door lever or hinges is the cause of this type of problem.

But in this case, I don't think the door lever or hinge is the cause of your problem.

I think the door is jammed and only needs some force before is can open or unjam.

Use your hands or a flat Philips screw driver to forcefully open the door. Don't apply too much force. Just apply a reason amount of force that could open the oven door.

Before you attempt to forcefully open the microwave door, leave it for about 45mins to 1hr, after that forcefully open the door.

If the above doesn't help to open the door, please let me know so that I can direct you further.

I wish you good luck.

Regards.












Mine does this occasionally, and it's because the door hinges have got a bit out of line, allowing the door to drop slightly, so the catch mechanism won't quite disengage.
Look along the bottom edge of the door and see if it has dropped lower than the front panel next to it. Try applying a bit of upward pressure on the bottom edge with your fingers, while pulling towards you at the same time, and with your other hand press the release button.

If that gets it open, remove last night's failed meal, open the door fully and carefully force it up a bit at a time, to bend the hinges back to level - keep pushing the door back so it nearly closes, and look at the bottom edge to check on progress. When the bottom of the door looks level with the panel , try closing it fully and see if the release button will open it again.

Good luck!

Latch button will not release door on Sharp R-5H84 microwave . Push button and can pull the door open with a slight amount of force.


Sounds like a portion of the release knob is worn or broken, or a metal piece behind it is bent.

Door will not open. Button release does not release the door latches.


The plastic lever release is more than likely broken. You can order the part from

It's about twenty dollars.
