Thanks, but that won't work for me. It's not an SW hangup, it's the mechanism
which is broken. At a time it couldn't stay closed, and was fixed with a piece
of tabe. I removed the tape, and the door's cover came away with it. When it
should open it tries (the noise of the mechanism is heard) but doesn't succeed,
even if gently helped...
