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.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety & disassembly info here:

http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

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.

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.
