I have a Nuevo 2022 and the drawer under the cooker keeps opening. It has a silver handle with push button latch on it. Is there anything on it that can be tightened that the latch I has a better fit?

We had a similar issue. It turned out to be that the drawer runners were loosely fixed to the sides of the cupboard, and when the van went over a bump the drawer bounced down so that the catch no longer engaged.

If it turns out that it is the catch itself, you could possibly fit an additional magnetic catch.

IThis does not have a drawer runner, it opens downwards on a piano hinge.

Adjustment of the screws on the striker plate may get a better grip onthe button catch or change the striker plate for a metal one.
