SOURCE: Stuck Microwave door

In most cases this is due to a broken door opening lever or loose or broken door latch / hook parts. They can only be accessed and examined if the cover is removed from the microwave. In many over the range models, you can access the door parts by removing the control panel assembly. Sometimes you may be able to get it open by pushing up gently on the bottom of the door while pushing the button, in case you need to empty it.

What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed in most cases.

Please unplug the oven first.

At our site, we now have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

We have 2 service manuals that are very close to this model have uploaded it them our site here to help you. You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print them.

(Note: do not rely on the part numbers shown in the manual. Verify them at the Tritronics site mentioned below)

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) to open the door.

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

SOURCE: Latch button will not release door

Sounds like a portion of the release knob is worn or broken, or a metal piece behind it is bent.

Why will door not open


Hi,
This happens when the latch hook loosens up and moves so that the door will not open when you press the button.
It's a very easy fix, but should be done by a repair person so that the door can be adjusted propery and no microwaves escape.

Not super familiar with Sharp Microwave ovens Convection or not,
but most microwave ovens can run into at least two reasons that they won't open and both require you to remove the cover over the whole oven - If the door has a push-button to release the door, you could find inside it has popped free of it's pivots and is not lifting up the latches on the door so you can open it, or is has actually snapped that latch. The other thing I have seen more on Panasonic microwave ovens and again moreso on the newer Inverter ovens, is that the latching assembly inside is attached to too thin a piece of metal and the metal actually bends - now your door and it's latching assembly and switches don't line up properly.
In that case you will still need to remove the cover and do your best to realign the switch assembly with the front of the microwave so that the door can click in and out easily.
