What model would be equal to a sharp microwave model R1490


Chances are only an identical model will fit the brackets. Any new unit will come with new brackets. Just swap the brackets out and install the new unit

I have a sharp microwave/convection oven model# R-9H84B. I bent/broke the left door latch after hitting it with my elbow when the door was open. I could bend the broken piece back in place enough to shut...


Sharp calls the hooklike parts protruding from the door "latch heads", and curiously they call the switch holders they plug into "door hooks".

Makes no sense to me, but that's what they do. :)

I would say the bent latch head needs to be replaced.

The part numbers for the latch heads are LSTPPA134WRF0 and LSTPPA135WRF0 but the part list on Encompass' Web site does not say which is which, and I do not have the service manual.

So it's probably best to call and ask them when you order. Or just order them both.

You can order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

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.

I opened the door on my sharp microwave and now it wont latch. it sounded like something snapped off where the door latches to the microwave, not the door itself . Even if the door is held shut the light...


It may be the latch head spring or the door open lever or button.

DOOR SPRING LATCH HEAD HOOK


If you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking out of the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off inside.

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.

you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see how it goes together.

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

DOOR OPENING BUTTON LEVER

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.

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 part numbers for Sharp models by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

If not, let me know. We have many Sharp manuals and if we have yours, we can link you to it at no charge.

The best place to order Sharp parts is
Encompass (formerly Tritronics).

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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.

Door won't latch/microwave won't turn on


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

Sharp R1490 when door is open fan runs...


check door switches and control circuit.

1 Answer

Fan comes on when slight opening pressure is exerted on door handle.


The door frame and seal damage has put the relation of the door latches and the interlock assembly out of adjustment. If after disassembling the door it is found that the latch assembly is good, replacement of the door frame/seal might be all that is required to return the oven to normal operation. After reassembly, it is highly recommended to have the oven's emissions checked at an authorized service center for any leakage around the door seal area. The service center might also need to adjust and set the interlock assembly for correct operation also.

The door will not latch


The latch head (with hooklike projections) have a spring to keep it pulled down. If the latch head can be easily pushed up and falls back freely, then the monting tab on the back of the latch head is broken and it will have to be glued or replaced. The new part is better. To get to the door screws inside, you have to remove the choke cover, as shown in the photo. You can order parts for Sharp models from Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com.
