Shattered inside door glass on Sharp model R1870

I baked Fillet Mignon and potatoes last night at 375deg and awoke this morning to find the glass on the inside of the door shattered. Questions, is that a special type of glass or can I replace it with regular window glass and also is it safe to use till its replaced. Thank you.

    Now how do I remove the shattered INSIDE door glass NOT the glass on the outside but the glass on the INSIDE it seems to be held in place by some type of plastic gasket. Then the re-installation of inside glass.

    The glass shattered into hundreds of pieces. Replaced the glass and it lasted 2 weeks before shattering again.
    What could be causing the failure.
    The original glass lasted 8 years.
    When the glass is shattered, I notice that there is sparking on a small spot of the metal grid.

It must be tempered glass and I would suggest using only the correct replacement.

We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you.

You will need the
free Adobe Reader to view or print them.

The manuals have exploded views, part numbers, and disassembly info.

The best place to order parts for this brand is Encompass (formerly Tritronics).

Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.


You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.


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

Ufortunately the magnetron is the most likely problem, "heats food" and is the heart of the microwave oven. If the device is five years old or more cheaper to replace the item.

I have a 3-year old Amana microwave installed above my stove. Last night I was baking two potatoes in the microwave. I noticed that the microwave sounded "louder" than normal. After about 13...


No! But it will need to be repaired. Did you wrap the potatoes in tin foil? The reason for the smoke needs to be found and repaired. Smoking means a short or a part shorted, failed, or wires touching another wire that did not blow any fuss.That is not good.
Trained technicians can help the mfg improve their products if they find the problem and report it to the Mfg.

My sharp R1870 microwave/convestion oven turns


This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, either the switch or motor or the damper door may be binding.

The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.

Sharp models stop after 59 seconds.

See the attached sample drawing for a typical damper assembly.

We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

How do I remove the door from our Sharp R-1874 microwave


Fixed the problem without any help from anyone. If you ask and ask and get no help I guess it is time to take on the problem and see if you can resolve it and I did. NO IT WAS NOT EASY but with a little thought and time over the last 2 days I did get the door changed. Thanks for letting me post even though I got NO help.

Glass shattered on inside of door.


While we don't have the exact model number on our site, there are a lot of similarities among Sharps, so the basics should apply.

You might look over these two:
