One of my friend who can fix almost anything is coming once a year to fix all that is broken and not working. It has become a yearly routine. This works out way more cheaper than trying to fix all these "wonderful" appliances myself!

Thermador Microwave Door Sticky


By sticky do you mean as dirty or not working properly. If the door sticks squirt a little WD40 in all the working parts like hinges and latches and try that.

Door will not close without slamming


Possible causes - door switch, or door switch assembly out of adjustment; plastic latch guides on door switches worn; door hinge worn, causing door to be out of alignment. If it's the last one, the unit needs to be checked for microwave radiation.

I have a sharp microwave/convection oven model# R-9H84B. I bent/broke the left door latch after hitting it with my elbow when the door was open. I could bend the broken piece back in place enough to shut...


Sharp calls the hooklike parts protruding from the door "latch heads", and curiously they call the switch holders they plug into "door hooks".

Makes no sense to me, but that's what they do. :)

I would say the bent latch head needs to be replaced.

The part numbers for the latch heads are LSTPPA134WRF0 and LSTPPA135WRF0 but the part list on Encompass' Web site does not say which is which, and I do not have the service manual.

So it's probably best to call and ask them when you order. Or just order them both.

You can order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Why does the light / safety switch stay on when the door latches shut ?


Most likely there is a part missing from the door latch mechanism that you need. This probably broke off when the handle failed. It would be a tab or wedge shaped piece of plastic that strikes the door switch and pushes the switch closed when the door is completely shut. You will need to find that piece and glue it back on or get a new handle assembly from Samsung.

I opened the door on my sharp microwave and now it wont latch. it sounded like something snapped off where the door latches to the microwave, not the door itself . Even if the door is held shut the light...


It may be the latch head spring or the door open lever or button.

DOOR SPRING LATCH HEAD HOOK


If you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking out of the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off inside.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see how it goes together.

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

DOOR OPENING BUTTON LEVER

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 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.

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 usually find exploded views and part numbers for Sharp models by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

If not, let me know. We have many Sharp manuals and if we have yours, we can link you to it at no charge.

The best place to order Sharp parts is
Encompass (formerly Tritronics).

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

Door latch and Screen


This is because of the broken latch. There are switches inside the oven that are operated by the door latches to make sure you're not trying to use the oven with the door open. With the new door, your oven should be back to normal.

Thermador MBY microwave


The problem is the push-on connector on the UPPER door-latch switch; if the white plastic around this connector is brown (burning), the connection is going bad.

Cut the three white wires back about 1 inch and strip; obtain a new push-on and solder the three white wires into it-- a crimp is NOT sufficient for three wires into this little connector (defective design). Also clean the two blade on the switch before reconnecting as the heat has likely left a burnt coating.
