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. To access the door latch lever assembly, unplug the microwave and remove the cover and control panel. Inspect the lever for damage and replace if necessary.
