Sharp carousel microwave R216 LS door latch has a problem. It won't open and feels like there is just a spring inside. I dont know if I can open it and fix it.


It's probably a broken door open lever or door open button.

Door will not open-push button doesn't work


One of the latches has broken off and is not lifting the dother latch clear of the housing. Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. When a new door lever is in place, the door may be easily adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.

My door latch pushes in but does not open the door.


But does not what? If the door doesn't open, chances are the seal has gotten sticky so try to apply a little outward pull... If it is sticky and opens, wipe down with moist cloth both the seal and the mating surface.
