I have the same issue on a later model, and the cam that releases the door is a poor design and only works if well lubricated.
You can lubricate the end of the engagement catches with some silicon oil or similar which worked for mine, although I did disassemble to understand the problem

Make sure you give the metal surround around the door and the adjoining frame a good clean/degrease i get lots of these doing this because some sticky residue has been left behind after cooking.

Bosch microwave door sags. It's difficult to open, close or start. Can it be adjusted?HMB5050/01 Photo is of right lower corner of door showing the misalignment

Any microwave with a mis-aligned or loose door is probably leaking excessive microwave energy, and should not be operated unless a leak test is conducted using a calibrated meter.
Unless you own such a meter, the oven should be inspected and repaired by a qualified technician.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

What are the Reasons why One touchy door open button is sticking on FGM0205KBB microwaves

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

The door sticks and will not open automatically when you push the button to open the door - you have to manually open the door.

Clean the door swith housings and re align the door.
That should do it, any other problems will become apparent when you examine the door switch holders.

Panasonic door handle (not push button) hard to open

I have had some success by taking WD-40 and lifting up on the hooks sticking out of the door and spray under the Bottom part of the hook into the door area. That lever guides through a metal slot that is part of the inner door. Sometimes that will help. I know you have to open the door but yanking it like that will eventually break off the metal huide part of the door and the inner door will have to be replaced.
