Same problem. I finally took the cover off and discovered this is how it works: When a disc is inserted, a machine part comes up from underneath the disc tray and goes through the disc hole. It then ( by way of a magnet in that part) attaches to a fixed metal part above the disc tray, thus holding the disc in place while it is spinning. However, and I don't know why, the magnet is so strong that what happens is when you push the OPEN button with no disc in there, the mechanism is not strong enough to pull the magnet away from the metal part, and the tray cannot move forward (open). I did discover that it WILL open if there is a disc in the tray, so I always make sure I have one in there before I close the door, otherwise I have to stick a knife in there and manually push the magnet piece away from the other piece. It's a design that probably sounded good on paper but.....

I have an Advantium 240 mounted over the range. There's a little trap door that covers an interior light while cooking. My door gets stuck and I hear a motor run. How can this be repaired?

That's the damper. It has to be closed when microwaving, and open when convection cooking.

See my video and also see the description text here GE Advantium microwave oven clicking noisy SCA1000 SCA2000 for more information.

Please note the phone number in the video is incorrect. See the Web site for more.

I am pleased the door is open!

Would need to know make and model. The information will be on the makers site, or in a manual online or someone will have asked before. There may well be a YouTube video too.

It is usually done from the inside.

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.


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.


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.

Door was closed after the latch was broken. Now I cannot open the door. Help

What usually breaks is the door open lever.

Or the rear of the door open button and the face of the lever may be worn.

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

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.

Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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.

Then you can contact Bosch at the number or site listed in the owner's manual to ask them about ordering spare parts.

If you don't have your manual, I would contact the manager at the dealer where you purchased it to ask them for Bosch contact information.
