Hello, thanks for your reply. Yes they proposed to change the door. I am now working on the microwave. I removed the steel top that covers the vent and exposed the vent. I see two lateral gold screws and a third screw that is holding the control panel. Are these the screws you mean ? I don't see the screws
Thanks. I was able to remove the control panel. I see the switches. The top one moves backward when I close the door. I guess the solution would be to tighten the switch one way or another.
Hi, TylerThanks you have been very useful. I have not solved the problem yet. IS it possible to follow up tomorrow ? I'll rate you as excellentBest
I was looking at the Dacor parts. I think that the latch is too weak. I found out in the description of the door that there is a spring in the latch. Could the weakness of the latch be explained by a problem with the spring ?
How difficult is to remove the door and check the spring ?
I took a look at the video. Does it apply to Dacor doors as explained ?
Thanks for your continuing help !
I will gently try tonight. It would be great if I find a problem with the spring. Indeed, there is no pull down at all on the latch, as if there is no spring connected.
thank you, that's very useful. I'll let you know tomorrow if I am successful !
I am at home, 9 pm. It was not so hard to remove the "choke". The latch bar has the prong for the spring (it is ok). The problem turns out to be at the other end, the bottom end of the spring. The plastic hook that holds the spring at the bottom is broken. I recovered it and there were other plastic pieces in the crevices at the bottom of the door. I can see exactly where the prong snapped out, it left a notch behind. Can you figure out an easy way to replace a bottom prong or do I have to replace the whole plastic piece ?
I now noticed that one end of the door is broken. It just came off. It seems that I would have to replace the door. May be this is too big a job for me. What do you think ?
Do I need to remove the microwave from the cabinet to replace the door ? Do you recommend a website to order the door ?
