Web Part Maintenance Page in SharePoint Online

Today I am writing about one of common issue for SharePoint web parts or PDPs like not getting open and not appearing anything on the URL page.
So as we know Web Part Maintenance page is an Out Of Box (OOB) page, which is used to manage the web parts in a web part page. Essentially, a Web Part Maintenance page offers the list of all web parts added in a specific page and options to close or remove these web parts.
In case if we have added any wrong content Library or script file to the PDPs page or web part page, in that moment it will not work result will be blank or Sorry something went wrong.
If we are having determined problems with a Web Part or Web Part connection on the Web Part Page, we can use the Web Part Maintenance Page to help isolate and fix your problem.

On this particular moment we will not have any details to fix this out, not even we have ULS Log file to fix the same. Office 365 still not providing ULS access to the users or administrator.
So as traditional no more changes from on premises  to fix web part or PDPs issue we have append URL called “?contents=1”. Just adding this appended URL to web part or PDPs will enable us to start maintenance mode for the pages.
This helps to close any malfunctions or actions to the page using any code or automation on the same.
Just for an example, see below URL and add appended URL as above and hit enter:
Once we will enter the page will start in Web Part Page Maintenance mode, here we can see below option available on the page:
Close: Directly we can close this selected web part at any point of time
Reset: This option will reset the web part   
Delete: we can delete the web part using this option, we need to select web part for deleting.
Go Back to Web Part Page: This will take us back to the normal page from maintenance
Switch to personal view: we can switch to personal view, as this current page will be in shared View.

Now from here we can delete the effected web part or we can reset the web part which commonly we use to do for rouble shooting.
If we have added any content URL here and it is causing the issue, we can delete the same and later we can add as well.
Kindly do refer below URL for more details on managing web part:
