Question about Sharp R-1610 Microwave Oven
I have a sharp carousel R-1610 model microwave and the door will not stay closed. I ordered a new latch and spring but cannot find the owner's manual to know how they are to be put in place.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
You need to know where the 'catches' are inside the choke cover on the door to remove it carefully without breaking anything or marring the cover. You might get inside and find that the post for mounting the return spring has broken and that is part of the outer door panel.

Microwavesvc, that's what I've had happen with my sharp also, I carved a hook out of a piece of plastic and then epoxied it in, and haven't had any more problems with that.
Another problem I've had with the sharp (that just reoccured, I'm trying to figure it out) is that the micro-switches that the door latch push have gone bad. Originally just one went bad and I replaced it, now the micro has the light and fan on, and won't recognize being closed...
