SOURCE: Door latches to microwave broken
I assume you're talking about the spring that keeps tension on the door hooks (latch heads, as they're called by Sharp). When you shut the door, the "hooks" are held down by this spring to actuate the door switches. To fix this, you'll have to separate the door panels. You can download the service manual from my Web site. There's a loop built into the latch head assembly and sometimes the loop breaks. If so, you can drill a tiny hold in it and reattach the spring there. There may also be a loop on the innner door panel to hold the spring. That one can break, too. If it's broken, you'll have to find a way to secure the spring to the panel. If the panel material is thick enough, a tiny screw eye could be inserted, then epoxied overnight to secure it. I've attached a diagram to this message that should help you. If that doesn't help you, I have the service manual for the R1600-series microwaves on my Web site at: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1610.pdf Repost if you need more help.

You'll see that there is a round piece with a cross shape on the inside of the button wand release button - place the end of the spring over the cross - you'll see the same cross on the collar of the machine...it'll take some doing, but line the other end of the spring up with the cross and pop the button back into place - be sure to click it onto those two gray circular/oval shaped divets at the bottom where the release button connects to so that the button stays in place.

You have to loosen the parking brake cables so you can pull the handle up as far as it will go. You may have to take the cables off the handle. When you do this if you look down from the front towards the pivot of the handle you'll see a small lever that can be turned, it has teeth on one end a like a flat ball on the other. Slide down the rod and use a screw driver to spin plate around so the flat ball end goes into the hook of the rod. So as you press the button it will move and unlock from the teeth on the gear that stays in place. Reattach your parking brake cables and adjust and the job will be done.

Testimonial: "Such a simple fix but some times the obvious is not so obvious "
Mine stopped working last night. I took it apart and was able to reassemble it properly.
When both sides are rejoined the tip of the spring has to be inserted in the hole on the corresponding side (note red arrows on both pics)
This is a great stapler when it's working.

HAhaha, oh this is so funny to me cause i suffered with the same problem, you have to grip the spring with needle nose pliers and wrap it tightly back arround, gripping the new layer every revolution, it sucks i know, then VERY CAREFULLY place it back it the spring retainer
