Sharp Microwave R-1480 ~ Removing

I bought a new microwave!
When I went to remove the R-1480, I do not see where it is attached.
I had my brother come over (does this kinda stuff), he could not figure it out either.

There are not any bolts above or on the sides.

I am puzzled and can not locate the owners manual.

You need to remove the grill above the door to find two more screws that go straight to the back wall plate. They will be on the left and right side. There are chrome or a gold color. That is the only other way that they mount to the wall.

Good Luck

Need to change face on microwave door as it is cracked. Can't figure out how to dismantle without damaging entire surface.

You didn't mention your brand or model, but since you posted this under the Sharp R-1480 category, I'll take the chance that's what you have.

WE have the full R-1480 service manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.
If that's not your model, feel free to contact me at and I may have the manual and can link you to it.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screw(s) you need to remove.

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

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
