Question about Panasonic Microwave Ovens
If you gently push up on the door latches (hook-like devices on the
door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the
spring is off inside.
Normally the problem is a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.
If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.
The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.
We have critical safety & disassembly info at our site, linked here: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.
