SOURCE: Microwave installation

Hi there - just figured out how to get mine out. Here is what I did. There are two screws at the top under the faceplate. There is brace on each side with 2 screws on the bottom and one facing out. Remove the two that face out. Next look under the unit and there is a brass looking cover with 2 more screws. Mine had writing on it about servicing professionally. Remove that two screws, the two power connections and the unit should slip right out.

First of all, what are the symptoms? Please reply back and I'll be happy to share my thoughts.

Many parts can be accessed without removing the oven from the wall by just removing the control panel.

You need to be sure the cord is unplugged, then you remove the vent grille that runs across the top.

Then you'll see a screw holding the control panel in place. Once that screw is out, you can lift out and out carefully to separate the control panel form the chassis.

If you pull any wires off the control panel, mark and/or photograph them first to be sure you get them ALL back in the right place.

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

Before you start, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site. You'll find a link to our site in our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

While they don't have their installation instructions online, the owner's manual is online here.

We regularly repair the circuit boards of microwave which are hit by storm surges, etc.


This repair usually runs $39.95 to $64.95, depending on if we have to replace the low power transformer. I just thought I'd mention this if you're interested.

But if you've decided on replacing it, the installation manual should be helpful in removing it from the wall. See it here.

You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print it.

Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

Can not remove from wall


Here's a link to the instructions for mounting the unit on the wall. Take a look at the section that shows 2 arms protruding out into the microwave where the microwave is secured by a bolt. Have you removed these bolts? If so, the microwave should pull out. Here's the link to the guide:

The door to my Microwave (Sharp R-1491) will not close. The inside latches are not working. Is there a way to fix this? Or is there a microwave that you would recommend (as inexpensive as possible) that...


If you gently push up on the door latch heads (hook-like devices sticking out of the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off inside.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.


Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

You can usually find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

But the best place to order Sharp parts is
Encompass or you can call them at

If you need to remove it form the wall, here are two sets of installation instructions that may be close enough. here and here

If the unit needs to be replaced, you can ask Sharp if they have a "drop in" replacement. You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

Our r-1491 microwave fan won't shut off, even when


its just the door switches playing up on you,,but is it worth getting it fixed? after all a new microwave onle costs from £50 up today,,
please dont try fixing it yourself unless you realy know what you are doing in there, there is 1000's of volts hiding in there even if its been switched off for days, and them volts will kill you,

How do i remove sharp microwave from wall model


The only problem that ricksterboy doesn't list, is there are also two screws located underneath as well. You have to take off the filter screens to find them. They secure into steel supports inside the microwave.
No getting the micro off the wall w/o removing them, or using a sledge hammer...which after all the time we used trying to get the thing off the wall, seemed like a good theraputic option.
Lucky we took off the vent cover and discovered the additional anchors.

Good luck!
