probably for convenience. As the controls are on the right, if the door were to open the other way, then the couldn't be seen with the door open.
There's an LG microwave that solves this problem by having the door open downwards. The controls aren't on the right side either - they're above the door. So it's suitable for right-handed and left-handed people. See it here
Yer but the controls dont have to be on the right!! I'd say if you're carrying something then most people are right handed making the only hand left your left one so its more convenient for right handed people to be this way.

Thank you For the answers and comments,especially the info about the L G Microwave. But I feel as though my question was not answered because the way that I asked it, So here goes. Why do manufacturers not make a Microwave Oven with a door that opens Left To Right, and also one with a door that opens Right to Left with controls either on the Left or the Right. Thank You all.

Answer - because Manufaturers are tight fisted. The majority of the World's population is right-handed. Its a discrimination of sorts, but if they made right and left models, the price would be higher because of extra costs, etc., and you might find then that "left-handed" machines would be more expensive, and so on. You are right, tho' it can be done - our fridge came with a small kit so I could choose which way the door opened, and the lights, switches etc were along the top...
