SOURCE: Sharp Carousel Microwave door latch stopped working door won't stay closed

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.

We have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, linked here: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

We also have this full service manual at our site: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1480_R1481_R1482_sm.pdf

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

SOURCE: 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.

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 helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

If it's a Sharp or Kenmore, you can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

If you still have trouble, please reply back with your model number so we can help you.

SOURCE: Sharp Insight Pro microwave drawer KB6024MS not working

The drawer often stops working when it is abruptly stopped while opening and forced closed or vice-versa. To fix, simply do the following:
1) Push the draw all the way closed
2) Push the "Setup" button repeatedly until the "Open/Close ...?" appears.
3) Hold the Start Button until the time reappears in the display.
4) Repeat steps 2 & 3 three more times
5) Unplug the Microwave for 30 minutes.
The drawer is now reset. The drawer will now open electronically (automatically) either by pushing the open button on the panel or by pulling the drawer handle slightly.

SOURCE: Drawer tries to close and then opens

I would suspect that a foreign object may have gotten in the pathway of the drawer, the drawer actuator is out of adjustment, or one of the door sensor switch is damaged, defective, or off its mount.

The service manual is at our site here.

Fan and light stay on when door closed. Shut off when door is open. Still heats. Door latch and spring are intact.


These door open or closed mixups are usually caused by the micro switches that are controlled mechanically inside by action of the latch when the door is closed/opened. There are usually 3 or 4 of those switches. Make sure the door protrusions are activating them. They can be replaced by generic ones of the same rating. I would replace them all! They cost less than $2 each. Order them online from a company like Mouser Elec or Digikey. You can test them for operation with the ohms function of a digital voltmeter. Be careful inside of a microwave. Deadly voltages even when off! Get some electrical help if you are unsure.

Everything on my microwave works except it stopped heating food


I found this on another blog and it worked for me.


Model #KB6024MK, this is a Sharp microwave drawer that would open and close properly, but when started would not heat. These drawer units will sometimes close properly, but not enough to actuate the interlock switches to power the magnetron. A quick test is to turn the unit on and press in on the drawer handle while it is running. If you start hearing the low hum of the magnetron, the interlock assembly is out of adjustment. Removed the left side panel and gained access to the switch mounts to do a quick adjustment so when the drawer closes, the switches close properly to allow operation. It may take more than one adjustment to make it work properly so test it several times before reinstalling the side panel. It should work properly when the drawer auto closes and should not require any manual manipulation from the user.
