When I turn the micro on it does not turn nor heat unless I lift up on the door. Seems like door needs to be adjusted slightly


The problem you're seeing is nearly always a result of a safety switch that is not being activated by the door. The result is that the oven thinks the door is not shut fully. Pressing the door closed at the latch or downward from the top opposite of the hinges will usually provide enough movement to activate the switch. One of these methods is what I suspect you are doing to get it to work.

Inspect the prongs on the door. Make sure both are not damaged or broken in anyway. The size and shape are critical for effectively engaging the safety switch. Repair or replace parts as needed.

The switch itself is usually connected to the latch striker assembly or to a switch deeper inside the oven - to the latch itself - to detect its position. The striker assembly is partially visible behind the two openings of the door frame - the two prongs on the door push them down and when fully closed, keeps them down. Since accessing these parts requires disassembly of the oven by qualified persons to maintain safe operation - the oven should be service professionally to ensure that the door is closed completely before allowing the microwave to function.

It is one of two things, a defective door switch, or the keypad control board has failed.

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.

Door will not close all way, goes up and down ok I cant see any adjustment


Possible fault in the door lock assembly where the reset switch is also placed. So if this switch is jammed or the lock has not opened then the door may not close.
So remove power connection and open top lid to look into this section.

The top right corner of my panasonic nn-h275 otr microwave door leaves a approx. 3cm gap when closed. Fixable? Dangerous?


If the door is warped cheaper to replace the whole oven, the 3cm gap is a hazard because you have dangerous radiation leakage, the levels are exceeding safety standards and should be removed from service immediately.

Electrolux oven door strained and wont close properly


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.

I have had my Panasonic Microwave (Model NN-CT857) just over twelve months and but have just noticed that, when the door is fully closed, there is a very small space between the door and microwave 'body',...


There must be a gap between the door frame and the oven cavity for ventilation and mechanical reasons.
The gap will need to be more than 3/8" to allow any appreciable amount of leakage through.
I am sure it is less than that.
If you are concerned, a leakage test would be the answer, from a registered and approved microwave repair centre that is Panasonic recognised.
The door can be made to fit closer by adjusting the door catch inside the body of the microwave. Just slacken the fixing screws and hold the door closed, tighten the catch holder and there you have it. A snug fit.
Hope this helps.
