The push button door latch had broken on my microwave. After digging into the unit-which was the hardest part, getting the shell off and getting at the control panel, I was able to see an interior latch part that had one side of plastic broken off. 40. repair piece later and I was able to plug that in, put it all back together and it works, although it does not feel that solid or that it will last a lifetime. Glad I was able to fix instead of calling a repair guy.
