Panasonic s550bf Door Latch

Hi I accidentally broke the top door latch off my panasonic s550bf and now the Microwave won't turn on. The latch mechanism is still intact but I guess there is a sensor inside the frame that won't allow the microwave to turn on. How can I replace the latch or fix the sensor?

    I ended up taking the casing off the microwave and then I glued the sensor switch down so that the microwave works.
    as for the latch, I only need the bottom half to secure the door.
    Thanks for your suggestions.

Do you still have the piece that broke off? If so, you may be able to use two part epoxy to glue it back in place. I did this with a colaric MW and it did the trick. The latch was hook shaped and made from a hard plastic. Pete

Door latch


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Open Lever If the microwave door won't open the open lever might be broken. This part can be replaced separately.

Door Spring If the microwave door won't open the door spring may have broken. The door spring is located inside the door and keeps downward pressure on the door hook.

Door Latch If the microwave door won't open the door latch might be broken. The door latch is inside the microwave. The door hook, which is part of the door, engages with the latch to keep the door closed during operation. If the door latch or actuator breaks the door may not open.

Door Hook If the microwave door won't open the door hook might not be releasing properly. The door hook is installed inside the door and normally releases when the door is opened. The hook is made of plastic and will break over time. When this happens it will need to be replaced, it can't be repaired.

Button Spring If the microwave door won't open the button spring might be broken internally. The button spring can be replaced.
Button If the microwave door won't open the button might be broken internally. The button can be replaced.

Handle Actuator If the microwave door won't open the handle actuator might be broken. This is a plastic part which can become brittle over time. This part is connected between the door button and the door latch assembly.

I have NN-P294 model and the door would not open, seems stuck due to likley a problem with a latching mechanizm. Since the microwave is attached to the wall it is not easy to remove and take for...


I think you are quite right but it will have to be removed for service.
Disconnect the mains supply and place it on a sturdy covered table.
Remove the cabinet top/sides.
Check the door mechanism, you may find that one of the latches is not connecting properly and stops the other latch from lifting.
Spares are available from Panasonic dealers and espares.com etc etc etc.

Door Key Broke on Microwave Door


To replace the inner part of the latch is actually quite easy. Remove the glass tray from inside, then unplug the unit. Take to a flat surface and stand on edge so that the door will open flat. On the inside is a plastic trim that is just clipped on. Pop this off carefully and you will now see the assembly you need to replace. Note where the spring is anchored to the door before taking it apart. Put a small amount of lubricant on the guide pins of the new catch (petroleum jelly works great).
