Whoo Hoo. Found an old wooden chisel handle. Had a rubber, self adhesive rubber table leg pad. Stuck it, trimmed it. Works lovely :) Fee free to use.
Thank you for the tool suggestion.

I would suggest investing in a new microwave. The kind that has a big handle you pull like a fridge handle. I have a cheap model (about $50)made by West Bend that has the added advantage of having several one-button settings (like, if you want something to heat for 4 minutes, you just hit 4 rather than a sequence like 4-0-0-Cook. Worth the money, IMO.

BuzzyBee, ah that large button near the bottom of the timing pad, those can be difficult to push open, so I know what you mean as I had one that would keep the door locked until I push that button.

Only thing I can think of trying is a handle on a screwdriver. The handle may give you an extra bit iof push to get that button to open. Just be real careful when using it.  Or go through your kitchen drawer that has odds and ends that one uses for cooking to see if anything else might work... just be sure it's not a light-weight plastic as it could snap, don't want you to get hurt. Maybe a small metal measuring spoon might work.

Thank you all :) I will be diving into the drawer soon. I am sure I will be able to adapt (cough) mess up something to fit. I was just hoping that is had already been invented.

Is there a way to take a rod or cane and uses part of your body like your shoulder to push?

Buzzy, without seeing this thing it’s hard to make suggestions. Is the button part of the door handle? Like grab the door and push the button with your thumb to open?

If there’s anyone around who’s the slightest bit handy I would think it fairly easy to modify a kitchen spoon with some tape, a rubber cap etc. and make something.

Maybe channel locks. These are slip joint pliers. They can be adjusted to grab stuff from very small to very large.

Maybe hold an unsharpened pencil that has an eraser on the end and press the start button with the eraser end so it won't slip? Maybe that can help you. 😊
