Question about Sharp R-1610 Microwave Oven
The door on my microwave is cracked near the top of the handle. I need to find a replacement and replace it with a new door. But first, I want to learn how to remove the old door. Is someone able to help? Thanks, Bill
HUH?! This problem may have already been dealt with, but others can benefit from an accurate, thoughtful reply to this problem.
The service manual will tell you how this REALLY is done.
We have a very similar manual at our site at:
I do NOT recommend removing the door from the hinges or removing the hinges from the microwave unless it's absolutely necessary.
If you do, you need to be sure you get it mounted back EXACTLY like it was, or you risk leakage.
Most door repairs can be effected by disassembling the door, as long as individual pieces are available.

The door comes off in a very simple way. Now...I'm speaking from the perspective of MOST microwave ovens. All you should have to do is open the door all the way to the left and lift straight up. The door has mounting pins that fit into a couple of hinge pin holes. If your oven is equipped with an upper panel grid, you may have to remove it, so the door will have more clearance. Putting the new door on is just as simple as lining up the pins in the door with the hinge pin holes and setting the door in place. Close the door slowly to make sure the pins are aligned with the holes properly. If not, the door will fall off while attempting to close. Let me know if this is helpful to you.
