Broken spring in microwave door

All screws easily accessible except for one on bottom of door. It was tough to remove, even tougher to reinstall. Took some time and a unique combination of patience and small tools.

My biggest problem was getting parts. I ordered what was shown in the exploded view - a spring. I received one spring. When I took the door apart I found 2 springs both different (a left and a right). Only one was broken and the spring I received just happened to be the wrong one. It took a phone to work things out and get the other spring shipped.

It would be good if the exploded view showed both springs. It would be better if the part number would just include both springs. Come on, handling, packaging and shipping costs more than these simple springs. If one spring breaks there's a chance the other is about to go. Shipping the pair to customers so we can replace both just makes sense to me.

Door springs broken

In another post it recommends replacing both right and left torsion bars. I took that advice and when it was taken apart it was apparent there had been stress put on the left hand spring, so glad I bought both. When the torsion bars arrived do not be alarmed one (right) is a much larger diameter than the left, went together easily. I thought taking the plastic guard off between the oven and the microwave first allowed me to see how the springs were installed and then I just kept all the screws separate to install back the way it came apart. Another set of hands did make this a much easier job. when you reinstall the bars it seems really tight but after putting the door back on and after opening a dozen times it feels like new again.
