A microwave is a very important part of the kitchen, but what do you do if the microwave door suddenly stops closing and you can’t use it?
The microwave door is one of the most important parts of the appliance. It blocks the operation of the appliance and provides easy access to the chamber.
The following are the most probable to least probable causes of a microwave door not opening. Check or test each cause, starting with the most likely causes.
Cause 1 Handle to open
Inspect the opening handle for damage. If the opening handle is broken or damaged, replace it.
Cause 2 Door spring or latch
Check the door spring (latch) for damage. If the door spring (latch) is broken, replace it.
Cause 3 Door Hook
The door hook interacts with the door latch to close the door during operation. Since the door hook is made of plastic, it can break due to regular wear and tear. If the door hook is broken, it will not release the door properly, preventing it from opening. If the door hook is broken, replace it.
Cause 4 Button Spring
The button spring is located inside the door opening button. If the spring is broken, replace it.
Cause 5 Button
The internal component of the door opening button may be broken. If the button is broken, replace it.
Cause 7 Actuator handle
The actuator handle connects the door open button and the door latch. Since the actuator handle is made of plastic, it can break from normal wear and tear. If the actuator handle is defective, replace it.
