Question about Sharp R-1405 / R-140 Microwave Oven
I have a Sharp R-1481 microwave. The door will not latch shut. My guess is that there is a spring that provides tension for the two latches that is not working for some reason meaning that the door won't latch and the microwave won't work. It seems like the door is sealed. Is this repairable?
The door does come apart. Open the door and where the hinges are, there are openings where the hinges enter the door, this plastic piece (goes all the way around the door) With a small flat blade screws driver VERY carefully pry it (plastic) off, once off, check the latch end for the spring, typical failure for a Sharp is the little tab that the spring hooks to on the door, the only way to repair this so it will last is to replace the door frame. they are not too expensive, about $50 or so Part# FCOVB166KIT
is the door frame assy
