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.

We have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, linked here: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

We also have this full service manual at our site: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1480_R1481_R1482_sm.pdf

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.

The bulbs under the microwave for the work space do not work.


On a sharp R-1480, they use a solid state IC on the control board to switch the night/work lights on and off. These IC's can burn up and quit working, or short out and not turn the lights off. I replaced several of these boards close to twenty years ago but I never saw one that was anywhere near close to being a fire hazard. I'm sure that these boards are no longer available.....

Unable to get the touch bottom to work


Quite often on the compact models, the solution is to pull the control panel assembly off, remove the circuit board and clean the surfaces shown in the photo with high-grade alcohol.

That would include the back of the LCD glass and both sides of the rubber strip.
