By sticky do you mean as dirty or not working properly. If the door sticks squirt a little WD40 in all the working parts like hinges and latches and try that.

What keeps blowing my fuse on my Sharp R-1480 microwave oven ?

A short circuit diode will do that or shorted turns in the magnetron high voltage transformer, or the magnetron or a sticky/contaminated door switch.
Hope that helps.

My door latch pushes in but does not open the door.

But does not what? If the door doesn't open, chances are the seal has gotten sticky so try to apply a little outward pull... If it is sticky and opens, wipe down with moist cloth both the seal and the mating surface.

Bosch microwave door sticking

I have the same issue on a later model, and the cam that releases the door is a poor design and only works if well lubricated.
You can lubricate the end of the engagement catches with some silicon oil or similar which worked for mine, although I did disassemble to understand the problem

Sounds like a sticky or greasy door switch, or possibly a sticky relay on the control board.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

After you look into this, if you still need help, please write back with more details.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I have thin baked on sticky residue in my microwave. How do I clean it without damaging it?

Wet a hand towel or multiple layers of paper towel and lay it over the sticky residue and turn the unit on high for 20 to 30 seconds to heat it. Then use a plastic spatula to scrape it off. The heating should loosen it up and the plastic spatula should be safe to scrape without damaging it.

Door stuck.

It might be in a bind , lift up on the door (small flat driver)
but it is likely the lubrication is sticky.
a hair dryer pointed at the latch area may loosen it if so.
stay away from the display area.
and try pushing in or pulling out just a bit on door when pressing button. be gentle.

Thats about the best you can do without opening case.

GE spacemaker Profile XL1800 vent fan will not shut off

It may be a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel, such as a sticky relay.

I would suspect a sticky relay first, but the door switches should be checked.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya:

If you need your control panel assembly (smart board) repaired, we do that for $39.95 nationwide.
