Bosch HME9751GB door keeps opening enough to to actuate microswitches and stop it working
Hi When you close the door does the door sit flush up against the microwave or does it spring back a little and you can push it forwards slightly when closed? Regards

Initially it sits flush. Then it springs out slightly
Ok if its popping open like this then its more then likely faulty door hinges. As the hinges on these are spring loaded so over time they can fail and loose there tension and cause this fault. As it happens a lot on ovens as well. As theres no way of adjusting them its a case of replacing the door hinges on this and that will cure the fault the fault here.So from the sounds of it this will need a new set of hinges and that should get it working again from there. Regards

Is it possible the air flow is restricted leaving the oven and hence pushing the door open?
No im afraid not as theres no way the air flow can be restricted as the air is blown through a metal channel so theres no way of this blocking or misshaping to restrict the air im afraid.
