Normallyyou have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo)and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Door will not latch


Check the door latches that stick out from the door. Push them up. Is there any resistance? If not, then the spring that pulls them downward either broke or came of its catches. You will need to call a repairman who will have to take the door apart and either replace or re-fasten that spring.

The 2 hooks(latch) inside the door have lost spring tension.


For no apparent reason, the latch broke on the 9187 ST. Take the door off of the microwave,which isn't too hard. Rotate the door to 90 degrees, lift up, and slide it to the left. Place the door on the counter, latch side up. Use a thin knife or screwdriver to lift the panel that covers the latch. It is very easy to remove it from the door. Then slide the latch up and lift is out. The spring is under the latch. The clip on the latch that held the spring was fractured. So, I drilled a tiny hole in the body piece from where the clip extended. I reattached the spring to the latch, replaced the panel, replaced the door, and it is as good as new.

The locker (latch) on my microwave broke. We just got the replacement part in the mail. Sears says we should be able to replace it ourselves. I see no screws to get inside the door. Does the plastic flange...


If there are no screws to hold the inside door cover in place then they are probably using snap or lock in tabs around the edges to hold it
in place. You will have to disassemble the door to replace the door latch. ----------

Inner Bootom Door Hinge Broke off...since then it will not turn on...Will that prevent microwave from functioning?


You probably mean the door LATCH broke off. Yes, that will prevent your oven from operating. The door latches operate switches inside to indicate that the door is closed. If the control board doesn't see the right switch settings, it thinks the door is open and won't allow cooking. Replacement latches are available, but you should check with a professional shop to do the repair. If door repairs aren't done correctly, there is a chance of microwave leakage and an unsafe oven.

Upper door latch needs replacing


entire dooor replacement is best course here. even if the part is availaable seperatly, youll need to order afewdifferent parts that you will break to get into as well as the extra labor to remove and reinstall the parts, the complete door ( if available and cost prohibting) is usually best course of action

The door will not latch


The latch head (with hooklike projections) have a spring to keep it pulled down. If the latch head can be easily pushed up and falls back freely, then the monting tab on the back of the latch head is broken and it will have to be glued or replaced. The new part is better. To get to the door screws inside, you have to remove the choke cover, as shown in the photo. You can order parts for Sharp models from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com.
