Microwave door stuck closed

Issue description:

An unpleasant situation: you put food in the microwave, it warmed up normally, but you cannot get it: the microwave does not open because the door is locked. Or another problem: the door does not want to close or does not fit tightly.

Any problems with opening / closing the microwave door are reduced either to the problems of the lock and hinges of the door itself, or to a malfunction of the button for opening it. In principle, you can cope with such problems yourself if you manage to get the necessary spare parts, but it is easier to contact a professional specialist who has all the necessary parts and tools.

What to do if the microwave does not open or its door does not close - more in this article we will tell you about the possible causes of the problem and advise how to unlock the door.

Here is a list of possible causes of door problems:

Microwave door stuck closed

Solution:

If your microwave door is suddenly locked, we suggest the following algorithm for opening it:

disconnect the microwave from the power supply and place it on a rigid horizontal surface

take a metal ruler: a plastic ruler will not work, it may not withstand the load

put the ruler in the gap between the body and the door and lift the jammed latch

do the same with the second latch
