my name is XXXXX XXXXX i am an authorized samsung service tech and i can help you today.
give me one minute to pull up the info on your model micro
ok. got it.
now on your model there is a small retention spring on the door hook. is that what you are looking to get into? or are you looking to get in behind the control board area to work on the door interlock and switches the door hook locks into?
it seems you are trying to get to the door key. that is on and inside the door.
on your model micro
you just have to take a small thin flat screwdriver or putty knife and remove the door cover on the inside of the door.
open the micro doo and look just were the door key that latches into the lock and you will see the black cover that needs to come off all the way around the door frame.
let me chow you a diagram of the part you need to remove so you can clearly see what i am talking about.
CLICK ON THE IMAGE ABOVE AND LOOK AT DIAGRAM PART NUMBER D006.
that is the cover that needs to be pryed off the door frame. but please go slow and only remove one side at a time as you work you way all around the door. the clips are what you are going to pry off the door frame to get the cover off so you can get into the door and repair the spring to the door key.
It appears the cover wraps under the door. I will start and see what happens. Thanks
here is an ok video showing you how to remove the door cover to access the door key on a microwave. i know the micro in the video is not the same as yours. but all microwaves are very closely similar and are made in almost the same way. so this video should help you check yours out.
what the video first it will help.
then please get back to me here if you need any other help
if you need parts here is the info.
the spring for the key is part number DE61-00048A and should about $2
that actually doesnt break much. it is usually the door key itself that cracks and breaks and the spring becomes unhooked. so you would actually need to replace the door key. the door key part number is DE64-01308A. that should cost about $4
if you need any other part info please get back to me here and i will help you more.
I think I watched this video before, but it was a little dark. I will review again.

Thanks. I have used Just Answer before regarding a Gas Stove that needed quite a bit of work. It went well and I am sure this will too.
but if the door key has lost its tension and doesnt move up and then down then the spring is most likely off the door key. and again that can and usually is due to bad a or broken door key. and you will need to carefully remove the door choke which si actually the cover that goes around and over the door key. after that is off you should see clealry if the spring is bad or the door key.
i am sure you will do just fine as well. please get back to me here if you need anything else or have any other questions and i will help you through it. but please just remember to rate my performance positively now.
It will be easier if I can remove the door. Is that difficult?
OK all done. The door key spring holder broke off. I had ordered and received another door key today and replaced it. All is good.
Still would like to know how to get the door itself off though. Thanks.
Many thanks Jon and Just Answer.
Til next time.
Hi Jon, I'm back. If possible Jon can you comment on the following. We can open a new ticket if needed.
I used this microwave's auto cook for a baked potato. Had to select it three times as it did not cook sufficiently. On the third time the potato evidently caught fire (I was not in the room). Smoke from that wafted out.
I unplugged overnight but the oven will not restart. The plug is functioning.
Is there a fuse or other item I can replace prior to looking for another oven. (I'm not happy with this Samsung but...)
