This is not a fun one if you take a putty knife and go in between the outer door and frame you can release the outer door cover hears the catch over time the door frame becomes brittle so there is a 50/50 chance the frame will break trying to separate it

Replacing the spring isn't very difficult if you're mechanically inclined.
You're basically removing a few screws, the front panel of the door is removed exposing only the glass part that's still hinged. The springs are exposed. Hopefully one spring is still in tack so you can see the orientation of how to put the replacement in. It's not very intuitive on how to do this part.

Is this a combination built-in oven with microwave on top? And is this microwave one in which the door opens downward like a regular oven? If so, then this is a common problem for this oven/microwave combo, but replacing the spring is not a job for amatures. It takes a professional 45 minutes typically to do this job. It involves removing trim pieces, removing screws that hold the microwave oven in place, pulling the microwave out a couple of inches, and taking the door apart to get to the 2 torsion-bar springs. Replacing them is quite tricky, as is re-assembling the door. I recommend calling Sears Service (1-800-469-4663) to get a seasoned repairman to come out and fix your oven/microwave. Cost will probably be between $180 to $200.

Hi Chan Sing,
If your microwave oven is brand new and under warranty then please take it to the place where you bought it from to claim for warranty.
If it over warranty then try this;
First off the power and unplug the microwave oven, open the screws off the cover and slightly lift and pull out the cover from the microwave oven. If you are not a technician then be care full what you are doing.
After you have removed the cover then you will see that at the place you posh the door eject button, behind it there is the mechanism that opens the door when you push the button from outside.
Now you have to analyse the simple mechanism if you are a non technical person, in here you will have to lift a small plastic up which we can call the lever. this is made up of plastic and it should be white in colour.
If you have any problem please let me know.

KitchenAid Microwave Door Won Open

One of your three door switches is bad. They are cheap. replace them all. Careful some are normally open and some are normally closed. Don't get them confused or you will get other symptoms like a blown fuse

You need to have the contractors return and troubleshoot the problem free since they told you they both worked when you purchased them. There's an implied warranty here. The two ovens should have been tested before the contractor left your house to prove they both worked together.

It sounds to me that your door switches aren't working.Your oven is protected by a couple of switches that engage when you open or close the door.They control a couple of safety features and also your interior light.One of them seems defective.
