Go to and shop for this grill. When it comes up it has a tab below the picture for parts. A whole door is $20.

How do you replace the driver side door latch on a 2000 nissan sentra,cant see how it is installed and get hands in there. is there a certain way of doing this?

When you say door latch, what exactly are you referring to? There is the locking latch, inner and outer opening latch, or the door jam latch? Take the door panel off, make sure that the window is up, and then you will have access to any of the latches. The door jam lock/opening latch will have some screws in it, 3 total, you can take those out and off for better access to the actual door lock mechanisms.

Rear door latch 1993 GMC Safari stuck

If you stick a screw driver in the door latch and pull while pulling the door handle to open it should open the latch. Be sure to clean it up and re-grease the latch so it doesn't happen again.

Door latch broke off

Even though you didn't mention your model number, since you posted this under MMV4205, I'll assume that's what you have.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

If by door latch you mean the hook-like latch head that protrudes from the door, you will need to take the door apart to fix it.

Please do not remove the door. When a door is removed, one must be sure it is remounted exactly to prevent leakage, which can pose a risk or arcing or even fire.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) to access the parts.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

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

Drivers side door lock will not release and allow door to close.

OK First I think you have a typical lock/latch failure situation, you must hold the door release handle open while pying the latch hook to the open(able to recieve door catch rod mounted on the inside door post) once you pull it back the door should work fine if this continues to happen the door latch assembly needs to be replaced(those big philip head retaining screws are installed with a special tool to secure the door latch from coming loose so be aware its not easy to remove)


Inside the door is a door lock electrical solenoid.... when these solonoids malfunction they will do exactly what you are describing.... to access this you must remove the door panel and all tah is connected to it.....raise the window all the way up....with a light locate the lock soleniod....very carefully remove the part, be sure you have the replacement handy in order to identify the part.

KUDS24SE KitchenAid door latch broke. How do I take the door apart

If the door cannot be opened, remove the the outside lower panel. (2 screws at bottom of panel, then lift off. Take a long screw driver (be sure power is removed first!) and push up behind the control panel at the latch at the very top middle of the door. You can them open the door and remove the screws that hold the control panel on. When the control panel is removed you will have access to the door handle and latch pieces. These parts can be ordered through sears partsdirect web site. Good luck.

Lg wd-8013c washer door latch broken. Is there an emergency release?


Run a shoelace between the door and the face of the washing machine, starting at the top, over the latch on the middle of the right hand side and down to the bottom.

Pull both ends of the shoelace towards the hinge on the left.

This pulls open the latch with NO DAMAGE and allows access to the screws that remove the latch mechanism. Easily ordered and installed with two screws and a plug to reattach.

LG give no support or reference to this easy procedure in their manual. SHAME!

Drivers door wont open iside or out all seems fine but nothing works

It sounds like your linkage has disconnected from the latch. I guess your door is stuck shut. It may be possible, but really hard, but you could try to slide something into the window and try to hit the latch release. It'll be tricky though... If you do manage to pop the door open that way, you'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you have to pull back the seal covering the door in order to access the linkage assembly from inside the door

Broken maytag door latch assembly Maytag quiet series 300: the latch is not working, door is closed and cannot open, seems something snapped inside, how can I open the door ? and change the broken part ?

To open this latch, the handle works as a lever to push inward when you push up on the handle. If your handle if broken, it has probably ceased to work as a lever (the pivot pins have likely broken). You want to push in on the handle to open the latch, ideally toward the bottom of the handle opening. Once you get the latch open, you'll likely want to order a replacement (here is one source : ). Remember to turn off the power to the dishwasher, and you'll need a star head driver to remove the screws from the inside of the door to access and replace the latch.
