Broken Microwaive Door

Help! the door wont open on my kitchen aid counter top microwaive model kcms5145jss. After working with the door and using a liitle force, I got it open. The door button that you normally depress to open the door has no resistance and it looks like a part has come loose inside the hole that the bottom door latch fits into. Is there a way to get at this problem and a way to fix the door opening button ? Many Thanks!

I'm assuming your correct model number is KCMS145JSS? You have a broken "release lever", part number AP3033332. It's reference number 7 on the exploded view diagram found here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/sect/4/g/4/4g4rya32jj.gif You can order it by part number from Appliance Parts Pros here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 If needed, you can download the owner's manual and installation guide here: http://www.kitchenaid.com/custserv/literature_search_results.jsp?searchTerm=kcms145jss If you need further help, please follow up. I appreciate your rating of this answer.

Rival rgst902 microwave. Door won't open.


verify that door is perfectly aligned with frame edge , sometimes in busy kitchens the door gets bumped and it no longer aligns with frame , if one forces it shut the mild spring that pops it open cant overcome the friction of frame hitting and it wont open requiring one to "HELP" it to open while holding down open button , look at latch carefully when open to see if any parts look bent or "not quite right "

Why won't my interior microwave light turn off and my microwave won't start?


It sounds to me that your door switches aren't working.Your oven is protected by a couple of switches that engage when you open or close the door.They control a couple of safety features and also your interior light.One of them seems defective.

You have a failed bottom door switch, or that switch's mount is broken or misaligned.

Yes. You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.


There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If yours is a counter top model, you have to remove the outer cover, and the mini-manual will probably be in an envelope inside the wrapper.

Hi, I have a GE counter top microwave (JES1651). It is just over two years old. It has worked flawlessly until two days age when my wife put in her tea cup to reheat it and shut the door. When the timer...


What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. 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.

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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams here and order parts for less by entering the part number here.

The door latch heads (prods) are not making proper contact with the door switches, so it will not work right.

The latch heads need to be replaced.
