I have a GE JES738WJ microwave from walmart Walmart.com: GE 0.7 Cu. Ft. Capacity Countertop Microwave Oven, JES738WJ: Appliances
The problem is that I'm always woken up at night or in the morning by my housemate opening and closing the microwave door. The main source of noise I believe is when the door latch 'falls' into its slot when the door is closed.
Can I remove the spring entirely from the door latch? that way when the door is closed the latch isn't spring loaded so hopefully it won't make as much noise.
My other ideas was to take out the door latch entirely. In that case I would have to find another way to keep the door closed, maybe by inserting a small magnet to keep the door closed.
Any other suggestions?
