Question about Sharp R-9H84B Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Door catch is broken. Can latch be replaced or door replaced?

The right door catch on my Sharp R 9H84B has dislodged (I think it fell inside the slot) and the door wobbles and doesn't close correctly. Can the door be replaced easily?

The complete door is no longer available, but you can get the right door hook (part # PHOK-A079WRF0 - note zeros vs. ohs) from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

You have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

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

How do I get it to close and latch again?


Look at the bottom latch The inside catch is a white nylon cam in a slot at the bottom.If it is there and working you can push it and feel a spring action. It's possible a drop of mineral oil or vegetable oil will revive it if it's still there.( It's not wise to use petroleum based oil on non metalac parts)

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 will not latch


Door catches.

One of the latches may have broken off and is not lifting the other 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.

Samsung microwave door popped open and now won't close. What happened?


The spring attachment to the moving latch has broken off either replace the latch or drill a small hole in the latch body and attach some heavy steel wire to make a new attach point for the spring. the inside trim easily pops off and the latch just slides off.

I have a sharp carousel model r-305m . we cannot close our door without slamming it. it looks like the top catch has broken or slipped down. can you help us


Door catches.

If one of the latches has broken off and is not lifting the other 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.



Door switches

If one of the door interlock switches is not switching properly, that can cause the turntable/light to come on even though the "Starts" button has not been depressed due to the wiring of the switches.
Check for faulty door switches and/or contaminated actuators.
I hope that helps.

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.

Microwave door does not latch; oven does not work


We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.

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.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

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