SOURCE: My microwave maytag UMV1152BAS door will not latch

If you look at the hooks sticking out of the door you should see two "L" shapes. Those are attached to a spring and you should be able to move them up and down. I think either the spring is broken, or an end of one of the L's is missing. Those L's enter the machine by sliding up and over a ramp and then down to engage the door switches. If the switches are not engaged, well, that would duplicate your unit's symptoms. It is a replaceable part, and not very difficult. If you do need to order one of those parts, you will need a correct model number taken directly from the MW, plus the first two digits of the serial number.
Hope that helps you.

Maytag MMV4205 door won't stay shut.


After tearing apart my microwave, I found a little spring broke off the latches. Open the door to the microwave, pop off the plastic piece that the latches on the door go through. You will see a spring behind the latch. If the spring is not connected to the latch it won't operate properly. The spring was held onto the latch with a tiny plastic piece that broke off. An easy solution instead of buying a new latch is to heat up one side of the spring without burning yourself and melt it through the latch piece where it was originally connected then put everything back together.
Hope this helps,

Door will not stay close


Not much data to go on here. The latch on the door has a spring that holds it down in the locked position. when you pull the handle the latch goes up and you pull the door open. You will have to take the door apart and see if the spring broke or the plastic tab that holds the end of the spring is broken.

Door will not stay shut


If you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking out of the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off inside.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals, installation manuals, and parts lists here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag here.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Door latch


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Open Lever If the microwave door won't open the open lever might be broken. This part can be replaced separately.

Door Spring If the microwave door won't open the door spring may have broken. The door spring is located inside the door and keeps downward pressure on the door hook.

Door Latch If the microwave door won't open the door latch might be broken. The door latch is inside the microwave. The door hook, which is part of the door, engages with the latch to keep the door closed during operation. If the door latch or actuator breaks the door may not open.

Door Hook If the microwave door won't open the door hook might not be releasing properly. The door hook is installed inside the door and normally releases when the door is opened. The hook is made of plastic and will break over time. When this happens it will need to be replaced, it can't be repaired.

Button Spring If the microwave door won't open the button spring might be broken internally. The button spring can be replaced.
Button If the microwave door won't open the button might be broken internally. The button can be replaced.

Handle Actuator If the microwave door won't open the handle actuator might be broken. This is a plastic part which can become brittle over time. This part is connected between the door button and the door latch assembly.

I have a MMV4205BAB mounted microwave oven. One of the small latches that hold the door shut is broken so the oven won't run. Is there a way to replace just the latch or do I have to replace the entire...


Unfortunately on this model you would have to replace the whole door.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

No signal came on


  1. Make sure microwave is plugged in properly.
  2. Check that door closes completely and its latch is aligned.
  3. Check that interlock switch in door works properly (required for activating microwave).
  4. Replace a blown fuse if it's accessible, or contact a service technician.

    hope this helps you
