Question about Panasonic NN-H275 Microwave Oven
First unplug the microwave for safety reasonsTake side panels off and press the button through from the back, my husband has just done this tonight on our Panasonic microwave model NN-ST477 as the door would not open. He found a piece of plastic like a hook had snapped off. The door now opens and functions normally. It has two hooks , one had broken off so he just turned the button round to where the good hook was on the inside and replaced the button.Took about 30 minutes to do . If and when it becomes stuck again we know that the remaining hook has snapped off and we will need a new replacement button. Hope this helpskind regardsChristine

What usually breaks is the door open lever.
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.
Please unplug the oven first.

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.
If you reply back to this with your brand and model number, we can steer you toward a part source, and possibly toward exploded view diagrams, etc.
