Microwave door pops open.

Recommended Posts

We have a G.E. Profile Spacemaker in our 2005 Excursion. I works great, but the door pops open when we are travelling. I have secured it with a bungee, but am looking for a slightly more elegant fix. Has anyone had that same issue? How did you fix it? Thank!

If the latch is failing, there is a good chance the door is not sealing properly either. That means microwaves can be emitted outside the oven, which is dangerous for many reasons. I would have the microwave checked by a professional for leakage and have the latch replaced.

The latch mounting loosened up on our's. I was able to repair it and some of the plastic catches at the same time. Not a simple repair and not all latch systems work the same way.

50 plus years in the electronics, design, repair and production helps.
