Question about Sharp R-1610 Microwave Oven
I have two Sharp R-1611 units and both exhibit the same problems. The plastic housings and doors are cracking in multiple locations and the fans in both units come on when pressure is exerted on the door handle, but before the door actually opens.
The door frame and seal damage has put the relation of the door latches and the interlock assembly out of adjustment. If after disassembling the door it is found that the latch assembly is good, replacement of the door frame/seal might be all that is required to return the oven to normal operation. After reassembly, it is highly recommended to have the oven's emissions checked at an authorized service center for any leakage around the door seal area. The service center might also need to adjust and set the interlock assembly for correct operation also.

Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure.
If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
