Door hard open


It sounds like the hinges are worn out or broken. Probably cheaper to buy a new one that to fix the old one.

How to fix the door button on panasonic microwave t6648fx?


Clean the inside edge of the door and oven where it contacts the door. Grease or oil is preventing the door to swing open.

Kenmore quick touck microwave, door latch hard to open & shut


If your want to start the easy path, get a Q-tip and some light weight grease and lightly grease the door-switch levers inside the door latch holes and see if that solves your problem. If not, then you will have to remove the cover, and likely you will find the door switch assembly and it's metal mounting support are bent on something of an angle - the switch assembly should be at 90 degrees to the front of the microwave oven so that he door latch fingers can slip in and activate the control switches easily all at the same time - straighten the switch frame which may require you to remove the switch bank temporarily. The little bit of grease still doesn't hurt to do it.
Reassemble.

Our Kenmore Microwave Hood combo model # 401.88529011 door sticks and is very hard to open off and on


Possible that the door lock is jammed, it can also be due to jamming of the door switch or the plastic lock being stuck on.
You need to remove the front panel , and reset the door assembly.

We have a GE Profile microwave and every time we open the door it trips the breaker. We turn the breaker back on and use the microwave and as soon as the food is done cooking and we open the door - bam,...


For a breaker to trip, you have to have an over voltage condition that is usually referred to as a short. Since your unit works in the cook cycle and only trips the circuit breaker when you open the door the short has to be in the door latch switch or reset circuit. So it wouldn't be that hard to repair, but since it is 7 years old and not the most energy efficient unit, if you aren't able do the repair yourself, then I would replace it!

You can get an idea of how hard the repair would be by going to the searspartsdirect.com web site and putting in the model # off the ID TAG. Then look for the door latch assembly and that will give you an idea of the cost of the parts and get an idea of how hard it is to replace.

Sub-Zero 601 F - when the door closes is re-vacumn seals and take 3-5 minutes before you can re-open the door. Is this time adjustable to something less? This is very inconvenient when working in the...


Q: Why is my door hard to open?
A: Your unit was designed for an airtight seal.
A vacuum seal can form after the door is closed. Wait several seconds for pressure to equalize before reopening the door.

I have had this problem as well. A quick solution is to put a thick straw between the seal and the unit. this usually makes it easier to open. Don't forget to remove it though.
