The door comes off in a very simple way. Now...I'm speaking from the perspective of MOST microwave ovens. All you should have to do is open the door all the way to the left and lift straight up. The door has mounting pins that fit into a couple of hinge pin holes. If your oven is equipped with an upper panel grid, you may have to remove it, so the door will have more clearance. Putting the new door on is just as simple as lining up the pins in the door with the hinge pin holes and setting the door in place. Close the door slowly to make sure the pins are aligned with the holes properly. If not, the door will fall off while attempting to close. Let me know if this is helpful to you.

How can i replace the front door panel that has cracked at handle . it is whirlpool microwave over range


The parts are available from appliance parts houses. They do sell to the general public. I did one a few months ago. I think the outside door was around $30. It is not a difficult job. Just know that you have to take the entire door apart to do the job. 20-30 minutes.

Yes, the door panel comes off easy (3 screws on the side). Mine was cracked so I ordered a new one. Not the vent above it is cracked. Cheap plastic!

Faceplate of door by lower L/H hinge cracked. How do I remove the door to replace the Faceplate?


Front doors are attached inside the microwave at the top and bottom of the oven cavity. Top case has to come off using, likely, security torx screw drivers.
Remove the top hinge.
Remove the bottom hinge.
Door falls off.
Replace the front panel of the door.
Reinsert the lower hinge with the door, close and latch the door.
Holding the door firmly to the microwave, tighten the door hinge. Replace the top hinge.
(On some units, both hinges need to be installed at the same time. Use masking tape to hold the lower hinge - makes it easier.)

Can I replace the front door panel kit myself?


No, it needs a special aligning for avoiding the microwaves leaking outside the oven.
If you replace it anyways, check with a microwave detector that there isn't any leak.

Door crack


Doors can be purchased, but they usually aren't cheap. Door panels can be purchased, but usually only the INNER panel. You can also get the door latches and handles. I don't know, however, if Sharp has any of the outer door components available without having to purchase a whole door. Refer to your owner's manual to see if there is a part listing index. If you can't find any part information, post back with your complete model number (located around the door opening) and I can see if I can find a part number for you. Hope this helps you.

Directions to remove and open door panel to repair safety door latch.


You don't have to remove door to remove panel. Panel is held in by an outer plastic retainer which can be removed by carefully prying with a small screwdriver. I can be replaced by pushing it back in place after repair is completed. If you cannot open door from the outside, remove cover and you can see latches. Pry up on latch which will let door open.
