For Whirlpool Pin-Hinge (Part Number: AP3177902)

I bought a new microwave door from you but I cannot get the pin hinge # AP3177902 to stay down when inserted in upper hinge. I get it flush, close the door and open it again and it pops out of the hinge. Do I need to take apart the new door to put in the pin and make it stay? Thanks.

Ed T for Model Number GH5184XPS4

ANSWER Ed, There is a retainer clip inside the door assembly that the pin "clips" into. " REASSEMBLY NOTE: When you reinstall the door on the oven, insert the top pin into the pivot bracket and press down on the pin until it snaps into place". You may want to try to carefully remove the choke cover( black plastic seal around the inner door with a putty knife or flat blade tool, and make sure the pin seats tightly when you press down on the pin.
