Don't try to run a microwave oven with a bad door. At a minimum, you probably need to replace the door hinge plates. Unplug the oven and remove the top/bottom cover. Study the hinges and door to see how they come apart.

When you have the door back on and adjusted so it closes flat against the frame all around, take it to an appliance dealer who sells microwave ovens (you can leave the screws out of the cover and take them along in a plastic bag or other container). Have the service tech check for microwave leakage. If it is clean, you can fasten the cover and put the oven back in service. If you have leakage around the door, you may have to readjust the hinges, or the door itself is warped and must be replaced.

Model E130BM55HSC. How can I replace lower door handle bracket?


Hello Teresa, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that you need assistance replacing a component on your Electrolux microwave. In order to replace the bracket you would need to disassemble the door. You should seek help from a professional technician for proper assistance with the disassembly. This will help you avoid any personal harm of improper disassembly of the microwave. Best of luck! -Matt

Are the doors from electrolux eml38405x microwave oven can fit to electrolux emc38905x?


Replacing the door is one of the most demanding service interventions in the microwave. Substitution is possible only with the original door, otherwise may cause leakage of radiation what is very dangerous.
For identity doors of two different models of the microwave please contact an authorized service center.

Replacing relay switch in electrolux high speed microwave oven


Sometimes a door latch or magnet closure is a problem. If the door fails to make proper contact when closed, the oven will not start. If the oven goes on and off, there is a disconnect and in some cases the rotating glass dish inside vibrates and causes a disconnect also.

Convection wont work


We could probably help you if you would repost this with the full model number from the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the oven.
Excellent job on detailing the symptoms though!
Just be sure to include them in your repost, too.

E305075FPSA HighSpeed Eletrolux the door appears to not be closing tight.


No! this not normal, I'am concerned about microwave leakage, and a 1/8 gap is to much, should be tight against the seal "major safety factor" the door is out of alignment or the bottom latch is not secure "to much play" I recommend a pro simply because he needs test for leakage when the door is properly fixed.

WON'T HEAT OR CLOSE DOOR PROPERLY. ALL ELSE SEEMS OK


Well firstly if the door wont close properly you shouldnt use this device as if you are in the kitchen whilst it is in use your slowly cooking yourself . If the door is open microwaves can escape and that is Radiation Lethal if you get too much or too close ?.
The reason it is not heating is probably because most of the microwaves are escaping and not bouncing around your oven cooking your food .. but actually bouncing around your home cooking you . My advise to you is get it repaired by a qualified Domestic appliance engineer or bin it and get a new one ..
