Question about Microwave Ovens
While I don't have that model's diagram,
you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo)
and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.
Normally the problem is not the spring, but 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.
You can order Panasonic parts here.
We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
