SOURCE: Door handle broke off. Can I replace it?

You can get exploded views and parts lists and order parts here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 You need to enter your actual model number, such as SCA1000HWW, etc. You will probably need to separate the door panels, so those exploded views can be handy. Feel free to see my site for my safety and disassembly tips.

SOURCE: door will not latch

The door switch mechanism is broken. Microwave doors have a special arraingement of double switches to ensure it is not open during cooking. Because everything is made from plastic nowadays, stuff like this breaks easily. The switches are commona nd cheap but the mounting parts may not be.

MW9339SB broken door latch


There are no user serviceable parts on microwave ovens, due to the danger of running one without the door in place. You will need to take it to a service centre. All of the screws are security screws that you need a special tool to remove.

Ok.Agreed,latch is not cracked or worn out.But check the grip of latch.Open the door.The hold the latch in your hand and see,if its loose or tight.It should be tight.Press the latch towards down and move it left/right slowly --- slowly.And inspect the latch.It will move,there will be a moment but the position of the latch in the door frame should be tight.If you feel that latch is got very loose,then the door frame needs to be disassembled and latch assembly has to be repositioned and fitted.In most of the cases this latch breaks/cracks and it needs replacement.But in your case,its different,you mentioned that if you keep your oven door pressed then latch remains closed..So if latch is broken/cracked it will not get closed properly.So as per that i think,you will have to check the opposite side of the door frame,where this latch gets into.On that side,there is a interlock type part.Which holds this latch.That part is operated by spring.If in-case that interlock type part or the spring,any of this is got loose then latch will get released after few minutes.--------------- But first as regular troubleshooting,you inspect the latch.Do you feel its loose or getting very easily moved,then open the door frame and check the latch.----------- For that you will required door disassembly diagram:--- Click the link,see part number 3 is door latch.-------- http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/W0505176-00002.png -------------- If the latch is properly positioned and intact then ,you will need to disassemble the opposite side cabinet to check the internal part,which hold the latch.For that you will require complete disassembly:---Click this link for complete disassembly:-- http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kitchenaid-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-KHMS155LSS2/0593/0123370?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=KHMS155LSS2 -------------- The door latch itself or other parts holding the door latch,none of the part is costly then $10.The cost of part is under $10.---------It just require you to figure out,either is cracked /broken part or just loose misaligned part.-------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have a Samsung SMH9187ST microwave, it is about 2 years old. The door won't stay closed. It is worthwhile to try to fix it or should I just replace it?


If you can lift the plastic door latch catches with no resistance, it is most likely the spring/plastic connector. I removed the door by lifting up, pulling the bottom forward, and lowering. I removed the inside black plastic bevel with a jewelers flat screw driver, prying from the latch side's external edge. Once it was started, I could pull it of with a gentle lift. I took out the black plastic latch, drilled a hole near the broken piece and all was good. Samsung is not on my radar for any future purchases. This is the 3rd major purchase that barely made it past warranty or not even thru warranty.

Possibly door catch and/or door interlock switch may be damaged.
No special tools are required, maybe a torq 20 screwdriver.
