Latch and Lever issues

Door Latch Lever or Button

  Your microwave door may get stuck closed if there is an issue with the door latch lever or button. The lever assembly typically has a paddle or a button that comes in contact with the door latch assembly to release the hooks, which allows you to open the door.

How to inspect a microwave door latch lever or button:

  1. To ensure your safety, unplug the appliance before beginning.
  2. Remove the control panel and button cover in order to access the door latch lever.
  3. Once you have access to it, visually inspect the lever for damage, wear, or seized components.
  4. If you find any issues during your inspection, you will need a replacement door latch lever.
