Cannot Remove Sticker Goo on Door of New Sharp R-420lw Microwave

Just purchased new and when I removed the large oval sticker on the door the sticker left goo on what appears to be a thin plastic sheet. Cannot figure out if the thin, flimsy plastic is removable or part of the door? There doesn't seem to be a way to remove it and I don't know how to remove the goo without damaging the thin plastic (kind of like a clear drum).

    Seems to have worked without affecting the plastic which was great! Still can't figure out why the plastic on the door front is so flimsy. Thank you for the help.

    I have the same problem on a brand new Sharp microwave. Customer support says not to use anything other than warm soapy water and advises that it will take a lot of time. I suggested WD-40 to them but they said it might damage the plastic. According to them, the plastic was added on top of the glass because of people putting things in the oven that they should not and the door exploding as a result. The plastic would prevent the glass from shooting out.

Hi, Go get a can of wd40 and spray a rag with it then use wet rag to rub the old glue off-this will work for any kind of sticker or remains of stickers on most surfaces-wd40 works like magic when removing any old stickers-is especially awesome for Park pass type stickers on car windows!

Mineral spirits dissolves the adhesive- wipe adhesive off and then use glass cleaner to finish. Very simple!

Hello, and first of all thank you for choosing FIXYA today for your technical support needs.

I'm Joe and I will be pleased to assist you with your request.

If you could please provide the exact model number of the unit, then I can certainly help you track down the correct USER"S MANUAL for that device including the complete OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS for it.

Just comment back to this page with that information by using the small blue ADD A COMMENT button at the top of this solution page.

Please do NOT use the ASK A QUESTION buttons which are primarily for asking a brand new question and starting entirely new discussions.


You can usually find the model number for the device printed on a sticker inside the microwave door frame. You should be able to see it if you open the door and look around the edges.

If not, then the model number will also certainly be printed on a sticker on the very back panel of the microwave, as long as that area is safely accessible for you.

Thank you very much.

I am standing by here to assist you as soon as I get that additional information from you.

Take care.

Joe.

I NEED TO REPLACE PART 83242. HOW DO I REMOVE


I do not know what part #83242 is. A search of several reliable parts web sources, yielded no positive results. So, I'm guessing this may be a door handle(?). If so, to access the door handle mounting screws on MOST microwave ovens, you have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. You can use a small screwdriver to carefully pry the plastic up and work your way slowly around the perimiter of the glass. Most microwave ovens also have grooves in the panel that you can insert the screwdriver into. Use care not to pry against the glass. The glass is tempered and also has an RF shield that prevents harmful microwaves from potentially harming the consumer. If you break the glass, you will need to purchase a new door.

The door handle screws are located behind the inner panel. Simply remove the broken handle and install the new one. Re-insert the inner door panel carefully and gradually work your way around the perimeter of the door glass and make sure it snaps back into place.

If you need to remove the entire door, simply open it all the way and lift at the hinges. The door will lift off the hinge mounts. You may wish to remove the door for an easier means of working on it. Especially, if the microwave is mounted above your range.

If you have questions, please let me know. If this is not what you are needing assistance with, please post back with the name of the part you are trying to replace. I hope you find this information helpful.

Location of monitor switch for Sharp R-5A54B microwave


It's usually the one in the center, as opposed to the being near the top or bottom edge of the door.

The entire service manual is available for free download on the Sears parts site (page by page) at http://www3.sears.com/ (the 3 is correct)

Just look for the switch as ref # 1-7 on this diagram:

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.
