Question about Sharp R-1480 Microwave Oven
The release button will not release the door to open. Door is shut and I cannot get it opened.
What usually breaks is the door open lever. Please unplug the oven first.
At our site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Then you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.
You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number at the Sears parts site, but the best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics. You can also call them at 866-779-5835.
