Question about Samsung SMH9187ST Microwave Oven
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.

Hey this totally worked for me and I did NOT have to take the door off nor remove the fan parts. Just open the door and remove the inside plastic rim where the latches stick out. Once you gently remove the plastic casing from the inside of the microwave door, remove the latch, drill a TINY hole inside the circle where the little piece broke off, attach the spring, put the latch back in, put the casing back on and close the door! Hell yea

I think that as realigning the door, unless a door catch has been broken off, would get the unit going again.
Remove the power supply.
Remove the cover and watch the mechanism as the door is closed. There are two or three screws that hold the mechanism inline, slacken them off and close the door. Holding the door closed, tighten the screws.
Put the cover back on.

Yes, thak you all! This microwave is a total POS and we have had to fix the computer as well as the cheap plastic handle which broke off of the base. These directions helped me to remove the inner liig of the door so that I could get to the screws and replace the handle (that the company made me pay $25 for). At this poit we have paid almost $300 to fix what is broken...The lining came off with a large flat head screwdriver, but I found that it was much easier to take it off closer to the door hinges than by starting on the side where the notches insert into the baase unit. I did split it by removing it, but it went back in just fine and seems to be seamless. I'll post in a year or so if any of us are growing tails ;)
