Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

The light is the only thing that comes on when you open door. You either have a shorted door switch (Micro switch) or a shorted bulb. You have either a shorted bulb or bad socket. From my experience, it's the bulb. Just because it may seem to start to come on when you open the door, it's most likely bad. At least it not expensive.
Please rate solution

We have three service manuals covering the PLMV169 series, which you can download free:
They're all pretty similar.
You can usually find parts from the Pros here.
If not, contact Electrolux at the phone number on the front of the service manual.
It may be the C/T fuse (thermal fuse located above the magnetron) or the oven cavity thermal cutout, located on the top of the cavity.
Accessing these two parts for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.
If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
You can download Electrolux / Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
It may also be that there was a power surge which damaged the control circuit board, activating the built-in surge protection.
This is not resettable. The circuit board has to be repaired. We do that for $39.95, details here.

Hey lizanne belmonte, thank you for your inquiry!
From what you have described your Frigidaire microwave is not allowing you to operate it. I would recommend performing a reset and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker for ten minutes by flipping the household circuit breaker. If that does not help to resolve your issue I would suggest having a professional come out to provide a proper diagnosis. Best of luck! -Matt

Good afternoon friend, thank you for the post!
I understand that you are stating the door open button is continuing to get stuck on your Frigidaire microwave. I would like to ask some additional questions to make sure I can provide additional assistance. First, which button are you referring to that is sticking? When I pulled up your model FGM0205KBB, I do not see a door open button. Could we verify the model number is correct? Once I have that information I look forward to assisting you. -Matt
