Mon Dec 28th 2020 16:15:01: Door not opening on Panasonic Microwave

The door release button on our Panasonic NN-ST479S BPQ microwave has not worked very well for quite a while. You always had to lift the door slightly before it would release. Otherwise the door would not open.

Well it turns out it just needed a bit of lubrication. I squirted some Gibbs Brand lubricant in the latch on both the door and the microwave and it was fixed! You could probably also use some silicone spray. I would not recommend WD40 as that is not actually a lubricant (certainly not long term anyway).
