Customer Question

Hello. WE have a Neff Microwave model C17WRO1NOB and it has stopped working with the door closed. When we turn the power back on, it trips the RCB. Do you have any advice, please? is there any way that we can manually open the door? My name is*****: How old is your Neff microwave?
Customer: we registered it on 21/07/2017 we believe
JA: How long has this been going on with your Neff microwave? What have you tried so far?
Customer: It has happened a couple of times before over the last few months so we switch it off at the socket and leave it overnight and it starts again the following day. it has never tripped the power circuit before
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No. It just stopped working and the display panel went blank

I would rather do it by chat

OK Colin, so when you open the door does the power come back on and it goes blank only when you close the door ?

Hi Kevin. The problem is that I cant turn the power back on as it just trips the power circuit. I have tried twice today. I can't open the door!

Are you still there, Kevin?

Sorry was away for few minutes. If you don’t mind, please allow me a few minutes to check its schematics and then type the answer.

OK, I am afraid the latch is faulty and will need replacement. Please check this IMAGE (part#307) is the door latch. You may leave it unplugged for few hours and see if you are able to open the door. If not then you will have to unplug the appliance and remove the top off the microwave, then replace the latch. The part is available here for £90 + repair charges (£99 if you get it done by Neff).

Kevin. How do we go about ordering this repair from Neff? Also, can you confirm that I shall not be charged £16 as we did not have a phone call, please

You may click on the above URL to order the part from Neff. I have not accepted the phone call so I think you will not be charged.
