Hello, thanks for your question. On this model the problem is the auto release locks on the door.There is a lever (plastic) when you press the button to open the door it cant do that because the lever has failed. You can get the door latch kit complete, that is the only way the sell this.If you are a little handy, I will help you through this repair.You will need a few basic hand tools and a word of caution.Microwave ovens can retain a lethal voltage even when unplugged in certain instances so please dont touch anything I but what I tell you!The best place to order that door latch kit is: http://www.espares.co.uk/browse/ma840/sanyoIts really best to call to order this part because they dont list all parts on site.
