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.

SOURCE: Dacor DMO24 microwave oven door stuck

What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed. Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

Dacors are made by Sharp, and one of these service manuals below may help you.

SOURCE: microwave broken door latch

The door latch head (hook) is pretty easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

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.

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.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

We have critical safety & disassembly info at our site, linked here.

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.

If the top of it butts aginst your cabinets you will have to take the bolts from the inside of your cabinets around the front area that that are holding it up out (use 2 people) once they are out it "should" still hang there, next step slowly lift it an inch or so (then you will be no longer on the back suppot) again use 2 people, then you can pull straight out. hope this is what you are looking for.

The problem I had experienced with the Door not opening easily will be resolved by removing the micowave oven top cover with a tamper proof torx head, replacing the door switch and reinstalling the top cover.

Door catch is stuck in unit so door won't close and microwave won't work


No, the only way is to take it to a technician. The door and catch has about 4 safety interlocks to stop you getting microwaved. The case has security screws only the techs can undo.

Remove the cover. You should be able to access the two latches and release them. Once open you will have to take the door apart and repair the latch

Microwave oven will not start but the light stays on even when door is open.


One of the micro switches in the door is stuck ( faulty ) there are normally 3 switches so after removing the lid open and close the door and you will see the door latches pressing in the button of the micro switch and one of them would indicate that one of the switches is not in line with the latch to press the button in or one of the micro switches has melted inside cosign the switch to release normally open or normally closed, you need a multimeter to test the switches in that case

Microwave GE JES738 doesn't heat


Almost certainly the magnetron tube in your oven shorted and caused the light show and sound effects. This is the microwave source, and without the waves there's no heat. The tube is replaceable, but it's a costly parts. Add in repair labor, and you'd be better off replacing the oven. New ones are often cheaper than the parts alone today.

No power


The problem is most likely in the door latch circuitry. This is an expensive repair. Consider replacing the unit. If the door latch is not repaired correctly, very dangerous microwave energy can be released. This is not a do-it-yourself project. New ovens are very reasonable.

JES738 purchased 4/25/08 , no microwave power, light and fan running continuously (door open or closed) and not responding to keyed input.


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Otherwise, since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Mounting microwave


As long as you have a adequate ventilation space (usually 1-2") all around it.

I'd advise you to consult the manual for that detail and about the availability of a kit for it.
