The push button that opens the door on our Sharp Carousel R-1406F over the range microwave, is broken. We can push it in but it gets stuck. I cleaned it out because it was kind of dirty but it didn't...


It may be the door open button or the door button lever. Sometimes grease is the culprit, other times the surfaces where these two meet get worn, making the door harder to open.

I need to replace the plastic button that is pushed to open door on the R1470a Sharp Microwave. where can I purchase this part?


What usually breaks is the door open lever, but it may also be that the rear side of the door open button has worn down too far to work.

On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be
removed.

Please unplug the oven first.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Once it is apart, 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 find handy exploded views at the Sears Parts Site.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help
here. (Part prices for Sharp parts is usually best here)

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Door Won't Close


What usually breaks is the door open lever, but sometimes there's just a grease buildup around the door open button.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed.

Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
