Found this Panasonic post in the Samsung section!
If it moves just a tiny bit when the door opens and then stops, that's normal.
If it keeps running when the door is open, that's usually due to a bad door switch or broken / loose door switch mount.
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: Need door assembly diagram to
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.

SOURCE: Can't open microwave door
It sounds like the push to open lever is cracked or broken. You have to remove the 'wrapper' to open the door manually from the inside to check the 'door keys' or door hooks to make sure that they are in tact. Then, check the door opening lever between the 'push to open button' and the lower door key.
