Question about Microwave Ovens
The door wpn't close. The catches seem to be very loose, therefore I am unable to use it. I have a Whatever Happens agreement which expires 18/08/11. I have tried ringing, after endless buttons to press and listening to the ringing tone for several minutes, I am told there is a fault. What can I do?
The door latch heads (the hooklike devices sticking out of the door) should resist you when you press gently up on them.
They have a spring attached inside which keeps downward pressure.
If you can flip the latch heads up easily, then the spring mount inside the door may be broken.
I'm afraid you'll have to keep trying the number for Whatever Happens or call Currys and see if they have a new number for them.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

You mean it doesn't heat?
Any other symptoms or problems?
Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part
