Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

To access this door latch assembly you need to just open the oven door. Unplug the microwave. Then remove the screws coming in from the top which go through the vent and remove the vent. Then the screw coming in from the top of the control panel. The control panel will slide up a bit and then hinge forward and down.Now you can access the latch going through the control panel access opening.
