    When i push the button it won't open. I heard a plastic piece break loose. It is mounted in a trim kit. What part do we need and how do we get it out of the trim kit to repair it?
    For model number Architect Series ll KCMS2055SSS
    Hello Lori, thank you for your question. It sounds like the Door Latch Bracket is the issue. Another customer had this same problem and gave us these instructions on replacing it. To Fix this issue: 1) Buy a new BRCKT-LATCH 2) Remove the microwave enclosing. I had to use a special screwdriver, since the screws were security protected on my microwave. After removing the case, I opened the door by manually pressing the door latch upwards (please make sure that the microwave is not connected to the electric socket before removing the enclosing). 3) pull out the old LATCH from the microwave. 4) carefully insert the new LATCH. Try not to put too much pressure when trying to fit the latch, or else the ends may snap again!! 5) Close the door and try opening it by pressing the door opener. it should work now!! I hope this helps!

    One pivot post on the door latch bracket broke off and one of the 2 plastic ears that the bracket posts fits into on the control panel is broken at the bottom but still loosely attached. I see that I can order a new door latch bracket, is there a new part I can order that has the plastic ears the latch fits into, or could I just glue the broken ear back into place? Any particular glue you would recommend? I have the stainless steel m/w model.
    For model number GT4175SPS0
    Hi Matt, Thank you for the question. You can try super glue but it may only hold a short period of time. I suggest replacing the Control Panel, Part Number: PS11745273. Good luck with the repair!

      microwave door stuck....wont open
      The reason the door would not open upon pressing the door opener is because the BRCKT-LATCH was broken. I discovered that after opening the microwave enclosing. The BRCKT-LATCH has two ends sticking out....each fits into a hole. One of the ends on the LATCH was broken and therefore it was not tightly fit. No upon pushing the door opener the LATCH would not function properly since it was loosely fit and hence the door would not open.
      To Fix this issue:
      1) Buy a new BRCKT-LATCH
      2) Remove the microwave enclosing. I had to use a special screwdriver, since the screws were security protected on my microwave. After removing the case, I opened the door by manually pressing the door latch upwards (please make sure that the microwave is not connected to the electric socket before removing the enclosing).
      3) pull out the old LATCH from the microwave.
      4) carefully insert the new LATCH. Try not to put too much pressure when trying to fit the latch, or else the ends may snap again!!
      5) Close the door and try opening it by pressing the door opener. it should work now!!

      Can't open the microwave door. Latch broken.
      I used a phillips head screw driver to remove the screws from the sides of the cover. Then used a special torx "security star" screw driver (size t20) to remove the star-shaped screws along the back edges of the cover. I removed the cover from the microwave and set aside. I used a butter knife to gently pry the door latch bracket from the peg holes and removed the broken part. I then used the butter knife to help GENTLY insert the new latch into the slot. I replaced the cover (making sure the front and sides were tucked into the grooves of the frame and then replaced the screws and tightened. All in all, a very easy and inexpensive fix.

      When I pushed the latch button I heard a crack sound. The button was no longer working after that. Therefore, I could not open the door.
      The hardest part was taking it down from the range hood stand. Without being able to open the door, the glass carousel was moving around. We removed about 7 screws. Luckily we had the special type of allen wrenches (ones with a hole in the middle). It was easy to see what had broke and that it would not be fixable. We tied fishing line to the door hooks so that we could use the oven until the part came in. When I seached the internet and logged onto your site, keyed in the model # and the item I needed was the first item with a picture. I was absolutely sure it was the right part. The price seemed high, but I checked with our local applicance where I bought the oven and it would be the same cost from them and they have always be reasonable. Ordered the part, arrived within 2-3 days and it took only 30 minutes to install. You need to press down on the side of the part (spring loaded) to pop it in place. Helpful to turn the oven on its side to get leverage. Just go slow as the part is plastic. I will use your site again. Thanks.

      The Brkt-Latch Was Broken And Would Not Allow You To Open The Door.
      I had to remove the housing cover that had about 8 tamper proof screws in order to remove the cover and get into the area where the brkt-latch was. I removed the broken latch found the part I needed on your website, within a few days the part arrived. It took only a few minutes to reinstall the new part and housing cover. Everything works just fine. My guess is we saved $200 from having our local repair service center to do the same job.

      Door would not open
      I removed screws from the cover, then I removed the screws holding on the front panel. I then unplugged the connectors, and removed the front panel and broken door latch. Then all I needed to do was slide the new door latch in the spot where the broken one was and put it back together. The only thing to note is which way the yellow and white and the blue and white connectors are on the front plate (location and wire direction). All is working well, and I can open the door again. Needless to say I feel better about repairing the microwave rather then throwing it out getting another one and creating more electronic garbage in a landfill .

      The plastic door latch broke on our microwave.
      1. Removed exterior cabinet using vice grips to grab the heads of the screws.

      2. Removed old broken latch.

      3. Snapped the new latch into place. Be careful spreading the two brackets that receive the latch so that they don't break.

      4. Re-install exterior.

      Door Wouldn't Open
      After buying the (tamper proof star bit set) it only took about 15 min. You have to take the cover off to get at the latch. I found that removing the snap wire connectors made the installation easier. I made sure to mark each one, and not to force the new latch apart to much. It sure beat paying for a service call, saved about $100.

      Door would not open
      I removed the cover using a philips screw driver and a set op tamper proof torx head allen wrench set. I inspected the latch assembly and found the door latch part broken. It was easy to remove and the new part snapped into place. Repair was finished and microwave back in service in less than five minutes. Most folks would throw their microwave away and purchase a new one, the door mechanisms are usually easy to repair and parts are available. Be careful in there because of the potential of electrocution, that is why they put the tamper proof screws in place. Next time, try to repair your appliance before you decide to throw it away, may save you some hard earned money.
