    I have a Sharp Microwave R1481. It has a cracked door and I want to replace it. When you pry off the door cover to get to the screws that hold the door handle on the door, does that affect the latch mechanisms that appear to be spring loaded?

SOURCE: Door Removal Sharp Microwave Model R-1611

The door comes off in a very simple way. Now...I'm speaking from the perspective of MOST microwave ovens. All you should have to do is open the door all the way to the left and lift straight up. The door has mounting pins that fit into a couple of hinge pin holes. If your oven is equipped with an upper panel grid, you may have to remove it, so the door will have more clearance. Putting the new door on is just as simple as lining up the pins in the door with the hinge pin holes and setting the door in place. Close the door slowly to make sure the pins are aligned with the holes properly. If not, the door will fall off while attempting to close. Let me know if this is helpful to you.

SOURCE: Re: Sharp carousel microwave oven minute display light out

Hello there
To replace the light you will first have to remove the outer shell.
To do this
(1). Remove all of the screws on the back of the microwave that hold on the shell
(2) Remove the screws that are on the bottom.

(3) now the shell should slide off towards the back of the microvave.
Note : this may take a little bit of pressure to get it off ok?

(4) Once the cover is off look towards the fromt of the microwave and
you will see the bulb. now just replace the bulb and reinsert the cover and the screws and you are all done ok? pretty easy ha/
best regards michael

Anyone perhaps know why my LG microwave LMV1683ST will not function with a new door assembly?


I hate to be the bearer or conduit of bad news, but IF the old (broken) door works, but the new door does not, the new door may not be the exact replacement part! Otherwise, the operation would be identical. Clearly, the problem is not with the microwave circuits because they work fine with the original door! Is there a flexible circuit strip that plugs to or from the door, to the control board in the main unit? If so, does it look any different than the original counterpart to it?

My sharp carousel microwave only works when I depress the door knob halfway down. What could be wrong ?


All microwaves have a safety lever or switch that prevents the unit from working if door is not closed all the way. Most of them you have to take the unit apart as access to it is from inside--what happens is when door is closed the latch or door moves the lever--seen a number where lever is loose or even the holder for it cracked.

Most shops are familiar with this and it should if the problem not be a real expensive repair.

Sharp Carousel Microwave R-1460A no power, door switch went first


You will want to replace the fuse and door switches. You will not be able to run it without replacing door switches. You do not need a new microwave. Door switches go bad, it has nothing to do with radiation.

How to remove the outter door frame on the GE Microwave


You need to use the entire correct model number at their site, but you can find a helpful exploded view PDF diagram by searching for "Repair Part" at the GE parts site: http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ Normally you can separate the door panels without removing the door. I've included a diagram from a Sharp model that might help. If you do have to remove the door, you have to be sure you reinstall it exactly where and how it was, or you may get microwave leakage. You should definititely mark the locations of all the hardware before disassembly.
