How to replace open lever on sharp r-1470a


This just happened to me this week and I was able to get to the part and order it online. The part will cost you between $5-$9 plus shipping.
1. First things first, unplug the microwave! Then you can begin to remove the microwave from above the stove and onto a flat workable surface. Underneath the microwave are two grease filters. Remove them simply by sliding them out. You will see in each cavity a bolt/screw at a 45 degree angle. These two bolts/screws secure your microwave to the back plate/mounting bracket. It helps to have an extra set of hands to assist you. Unscrew the bolts/screws. Then lift the microwave up slightly and tip it forward to remove it being cautious about snagging the cord on anything. Place on a solid, flat surface.
2.Remove the front top fan vent. It's the slotted piece of plastic at the top of the microwave. It'll have 3 screws. Underneath that piece above your control panel is a screw. That screw will have a warning next to it indicating to disconnect from power source before working on it.
3. Next you'll need to remove the housing shell. There are two large screws on both sides of the oven at the middle bottom. Then on the rear are several screws to remove in addition to the silver bracket with an arrow on it. Remove the screws from that as well. Now gently remove the outer shell of the oven. Do so slowly as you'll have to slide the cord through the opening to create space. Once you have enough space, you can unplug the power cord from the microwave via a Tamiya connector. Place the shell off to the side.
4. Now you can remove the sensor panel. It's clip in so gently pry it off and leave the wires attach. It'll dangle but should be secure enough to hang on it's own.
5. From here, you'll be able to see the open lever. It's located behind where the push open button on the control panel is located on the bottom. It's held in place via two "knobs". In my particular case, one of the knobs broke. To remove the open lever, behind one of the knobs is a piece of metal tab to keep it from falling out of place. Simply bend the tab in a bit and pull the lever out the side of the opened microwave shell.
Hope this help. I'm in no means an appliance expert, just a handy guy who is cheap as hell :)

How do you remove Whirlpool microwave mh7140x door to replace white plastic door face?


If you are referring to the disassembly and replacement of the door, just follow these steps:
1. Open the door all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. On some microwaves, you may have to remove the upper grill cover over the door (if equipped) to accommodate door removal. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

NOTE: Some doors have a hinge pin that needs to be removed, or screws holding the door in place at the hinge.


2. On MOST microwave ovens, all you have to do is remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The panel is pressed in place and can be removed by using a small screwdriver or putty knife and carefully insert along the seam of the inner panel to release the clips that hold it in place so you can pry the plastic up. Work your way slowly around the perimeter of the glass to pop the panel loose. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that shields you from harmful RF radiation.

3. With the inner panel removed, locate the door handle screws and remove with a screwdriver.

4. The panel glass should be "sandwiched" in place (double layer on most ovens) and should either lift out, or have retaining clips holding in place. Remove and set aside.

5. The remaining piece(s) comprise the door frame. Replace as necessary.

REASSEMBLY: Re-insert the panel glass, followed by the inner door panel, gradually working your way around the perimeter of the door glass to ensure it snaps back into place and seats properly.


There are several parts sources available that you can use to purchase replacement parts:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites on the list also offer helpful exploded view parts listings to aid in parts identification and location. Just type in your model number and locate the parts listing for the door. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this advice is helpful.

Handle came off at the bottom


To access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply tighten the screw(s) to the door handle and then re-insert the inner door panel. Carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

This repair can be done with the door in place, or you can remove it for easier access. If you decide the remove the door, simply open it all the way and lift straight up at the hinges. The door will lift off of the hinge pins. Place on a hard flat surface with some towels under it for padding. This protects the door facing from scatches.

Microwave is shooting sparks from the bottom it is a Goldstar made in 2003.


Hello, W/D here.

Sparks shooting out of anything is bad news. The good news is that the price of microwaves has fallen quite a bit, and the technology has actually improved, even since 2003. Making even a service call to repair your microwave will likely cost you more than it is worth. Your money will be better spent in placing it towards a new microwave. This is just my opinion, but I have worked on a few of them.

Best regards, --W/D--

Turntable


There's a small turntable motor under the bottom panel of the oven. You can access it by removing the series of screws holding this bottom panel in place underneath the oven. You either have a motor that is failing, or the turntable shaft which the carousel rides on, might worn and starting to slip on the motor shaft. The motor is held in with a fews screws and has an electrical connection you will need to unplug. The turntable shaft simply pulls off the shaft from this inside of the oven. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you require addtional assistance.

PS For future reference, please post your make and model number as all microwave ovens are not made the same and can exhibit different symptoms.

Turntable won't turn anymore


The turntable has a drive motor which is located behind the panel that covers the BOTTOM of the oven. It could be that this small drive motor has failed. Replacing it should be simple and doesn't cost much. If the oven is mounted, you can leave it in place in most cases and just remove the bottom panel. Make sure the unit is UNPLUGGED before servicing, however. Please post back with your complete model number (located around the door opening) so I can be sure. I'm having a hard time locating any parts info and want to make sure I give you the right advice.

Spacemaker 1800 Turntable


If the noise goes away when you turn the turntable off, it sounds like you have a turntable drive motor that is going bad. They are fairly easy to replace and not terribly expensive. You can access the motor by leaving the oven in place and UNPLUGGED. Remove the bottom panel. You will need to remove the turntable coupler (the plastic piece that spins the glass carousel) and remove a few screws in order for the motor to come out through the bottom of the oven. There should also be a quick connect plug that plugs into the motor. The motor runs about $35 and the turntable coupler (if you wish to replace it as well), runs about $8. The part numbers are 769741 and 769278, respectively at repairclinic.com. I hope this helps you.
