The door open lever, Sharp Carousel model R-1870 broke - part # MLEVPBO16MRFO. Part came out - no problem but not so easy on re install. Tabs are in the way of pin alignment. Can you help me? I'm sure there is a trick.

Actually, you shouldn't need to remove it from the wall to change the door switches or latch head.

We have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

We have a partial service manual for that unit at our site, and it has the wiring diagram (helpful to be sure it all gets back right).

The manual is at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r1380_r1381_sm.pdf

Feel free to contact me directly if you have other questions.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

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: Sharp model R-1870 Carosel quits cooking at 59 seconds

This is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.

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

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

SOURCE: How to install latch and spring in microwave door

You need to know where the 'catches' are inside the choke cover on the door to remove it carefully without breaking anything or marring the cover. You might get inside and find that the post for mounting the return spring has broken and that is part of the outer door panel.

I just had an appliance repair man check my Sharp R-1870 microwave for the 59 second shut off problem. He said it was the main circuit board. Has anyone run into this problem. Everything I google says...


I've had a similar problem with a 1983 Sharp Carousel microwave. It turned out to be a faulty door micro switch, the contact didn't stay closed inside it for very long.

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!

Door latch sharp 1870


The service manuals you need are here and here.

This is often a broken door open lever or door open button.

You should be able to remove the controller assembly (see video here) and see the parts you need to check.

If not, you will need to remove the oven from the wall.

You can order Sharp parts from Encompass here.

My sharp carousel microwave only works when I depress the door knob halfway down. What could be wrong ?


All microwaves have a safety lever or switch that prevents the unit from working if door is not closed all the way. Most of them you have to take the unit apart as access to it is from inside--what happens is when door is closed the latch or door moves the lever--seen a number where lever is loose or even the holder for it cracked.

Most shops are familiar with this and it should if the problem not be a real expensive repair.

Sharp R1870 microwave door will not open and child lock is not on.


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

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.

Chances are the rear of the door open button and/or the face of the door open lever is worn enough that it will not actuate properly. Or the lever may be broken.

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 order parts for this brand from Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Sharp Carousel Microwave has no power


I too believe that a "protection fuse" was possibly blown. It would need to be found and get replaced. Hopefully it is just a fuse and nothing else because the way it sounds to me, the microwave may be damaged.

Good Luck!

Door Will Not Close/Open


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.

Please unplug the oven before disassembly.

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 exploded views and get part numbers by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

The best place to order parts for this brand is Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.
