Door Will Not Close - Over-the-Range Microwave

Possible Solutions

Is the door latch/lock blocked? 

Ensure the door latch is not blocked.  Below are some common items that may prevent the microwave from closing or opening:

  • Packing and/or shipping material
  • Dish or bakeware. Ensure the dish is the correct size for the microwave, an oversized plate will prevent the door from closing. 
  • Check that the cooking rack (if equipped) is not out of position and not allowing the door to close.

Is the microwave on a level surface?

Place the microwave oven on a flat and level counter, table, shelf, or cart, that will not block the opening or closing of the microwave oven door.

Does the door contact area need to be cleaned? 

Check to make sure there is no soil build-up on the door contact area

  • Check that the cooking rack (if equipped) is not out of position and not allowing the door to close.
