SOURCE: Door latches to microwave broken
I assume you're talking about the spring that keeps tension on the door hooks (latch heads, as they're called by Sharp). When you shut the door, the "hooks" are held down by this spring to actuate the door switches. To fix this, you'll have to separate the door panels. You can download the service manual from my Web site. There's a loop built into the latch head assembly and sometimes the loop breaks. If so, you can drill a tiny hold in it and reattach the spring there. There may also be a loop on the innner door panel to hold the spring. That one can break, too. If it's broken, you'll have to find a way to secure the spring to the panel. If the panel material is thick enough, a tiny screw eye could be inserted, then epoxied overnight to secure it. I've attached a diagram to this message that should help you. If that doesn't help you, I have the service manual for the R1600-series microwaves on my Web site at: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1610.pdf Repost if you need more help.

SOURCE: I was trying to clean
I think the main problem with this machine is that the grounds fly all over inside when grinding and combine with the steam and hot water and eventually gum up the moving parts. This causes the latch for the filter basket to lose its grip sometimes and the door pops open during the brewing cycle...I was trying to take apart the slides to clean them out and made the mistake of removing the small screw underneath the left slide. Then the spring popped out and it took about an hour to get it back together, very frustrating. I ended up bending one end of the spring into a slight hook with a needle nose pliers so it would catch better on the "nub" that is connected to the side button. The best way I figured out to clean the slides so far is to blast them out with compressed air periodically for preventative maintenance. I use one of those cans normally used to dust off electronics and insert the straw into the slides.

I just took mine apart, and put it back together. Of the three holes for the screws, there are two smaller and one bigger hole. Align the larger hole on the filter and the base, and the tiny plastic bit and the spring go in to the larger, along with the hollow and larger screw.

This is over a year too late, but perhaps this will help other people in your situation. Here is how the switch assembly should go together:
