Question about Microwave Ovens
In 1998 I purchased a Sharp microwave oven model R-3E68 (850/900W 25L) from a shop in New Jersey that specialized in appliances that could be used overseas, since I was moving to the country of Norway where the voltage is 240.
I believe the microwave was produced somewhere in Asia/Southeast Asia. (The display and user manual include several of the languages from this region.)
Recently the plastic door latch component basically disintegrated and fell out and I can't close the door, much less use the oven, which is otherwise working just fine.
Is there any way to find a door for the oven? They don't sell Sharp microwaves in Norway, much less have service.
Thanks for any help.
I think it's a Hong Kong model.
Normally you can find Sharp's specific country page by entering one of two URL formulas, but replacing the xx with the two-letter country code of that nation:
Sharp Hong Kong is at http://www.sharp.com/uk
Look for a customer service or contact link, then see if they have a parts link. If not, you'll have to call or e-mail.
If that fails, you can take a few high-quality photos of the part you need and I may be able to cross it.
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

One of the latches has broken off and
is not lifting the dother 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.
