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.

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

Sharp Carousel Microwave door won't open, button broke


Take it to a Discount Appliance or Used Appliance store and have them repair it. There they will have the parts that are used and cheaper to repair than hiring an Appliance Service Technician.
Option 2
Take the microwave apart and go to www.searpartsdirect.com and type in your model number and find the broken part and part number. Then order the part through ApplianceZone.com or ApliancePartsPro.com. Later when parts arrive at your door... install theparts yourself and save money!

Latch button will not release door on Sharp R-5H84 microwave . Push button and can pull the door open with a slight amount of force.


Sounds like a portion of the release knob is worn or broken, or a metal piece behind it is bent.

Door will not open. Button release does not release the door latches.


The plastic lever release is more than likely broken. You can order the part from
