Question about Panasonic Microwave Ovens
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: Microwave won't turn on
If the oven is completely dead it might be due to a fuse. Most ovens use a 15-amp ceramic fuse found under the cover. Two problems, though. First, the fuse seldom just goes on its own; usually something else is bad first, which means other troubleshooting and parts replacement. Second, many microwave oven covers are held on with security screws and you'll need to hunt up the appropriate driver.
If the oven has power but doesn't heat, the cause is usually failure of one of three main parts that make the microwaves (magnetron, capacitor or diode).
A microwave oven is not complicated to work on, but because of the voltages present and possibility of microwave leakage if a repair isn't done correctly, there is an element of risk involved. Unless the oven is a very high-end model or a built-in or over-the-range model, you might want to replace it instead of repairing. Like other appliances, they are inexpensive and repair often comes close to or even exceeds the cost of new.
Hope this is helpful.

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.

Testimonial: "Thank you for replying! You really seem to know what you are talking about!"
The problem I had experienced with the Door not opening easily will be resolved by removing the micowave oven top cover with a tamper proof torx head, replacing the door switch and reinstalling the top cover.
