Question about Sharp R-1500 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Door crack The microwave works fine, but the door was "slammed" too hard and the bottom of the door cracked. It is a real eye sore in the kitchen. Can the bottom panel be purchased separately? What about buying a new door? Thanks, C

Doors can be purchased, but they usually aren't cheap. Door panels can be purchased, but usually only the INNER panel. You can also get the door latches and handles. I don't know, however, if Sharp has any of the outer door components available without having to purchase a whole door. Refer to your owner's manual to see if there is a part listing index. If you can't find any part information, post back with your complete model number (located around the door opening) and I can see if I can find a part number for you. Hope this helps you.

    I found a website called partstore.com. You can enter your model number and find a list of parts there. The entire door costs about $85. There are two other parts listed: door panel and door frame, but I found no illustration to identify it. You may check out this site to see if you can find the answers you're looking for. If you decide to replace the entire door, it comes off fairly easy by opening the door all the way and lifting straight up. The door is mounted on hinge pins and should just lift right off. I hope this helps you.

A small crack is probably ok if you had a lot of leakage you will feel a tingle sensation in your hand if you are really worried take a small piece of foil and cover the crack that will prevent any radition from leaking, I used to repair microwave ovens and I know with the current models it is not possable for much to escape, unless there is a large hole I once serviced a commerial microwave that was used with most of the front glass missing, the user reported some tingling in his hand.

My whirlpool microwave MH1170XSS-2 closes and latches just fine, but all of a sudden it stopped sensing the door is closed. the light stays on and it won't run, running a "close door" message.


By the sound of your description of the problem, it sounds like the door is closing and latching closed OK. This rules out a door latch return spring issue. I think it is a door sensing switch problem, either the switch contacts are not going to zero ohms (they can get a slight grease film build up on them [even in the box- brand new] and show 5 ohms or more) or the switch body is not in proper position, sometimes the switch mounting posts can break if the door gets closed too hard (slammed). It could also be a wiring problem to the control board or a board problem itself but this is the least likely cause. It is also possible that a latch head can get broken off or cracked and is just not noticed..You need an ohm meter to diagnose the switch's electrical condition. Please be sure to unplug the unit from the wall before doing any disassembly.

Door suddenly has a vertical crack and several horizontal cracks. why


Thats a hard one, might be worth a call to the maker with the model number inquire if a known issue--its possible its a defect.

Only other thing would be someone slamming it hard a lot but these units should be tough enough to take years of that---if you call the maker don't take a song and dance from them---recently on this site had someone who had called a maker about water or liquid constantly coming out the bottom of a Microwave---the company said :"oh, thats normal, don't worry".---The lady asked here and she and I had same response---I don't think water and electricity mix very well or are a safe situation.

My Frigidaire fmv156dsb microwave counts down and lights work onl


That would be a bad primary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount may be, loose, cracked, or misaligned.

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here for free download to help you.


It will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly, troubleshooting tips, and part numbers.

If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If the switch mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

This is almost always the primary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount is loose or cracked.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

That would be 'the primary interlock (top door switch), or its mount may be loose or cracked.

It may be a coincidence, or not. Hard to say.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

But it could be misalignment from the door work. Too bad he didn't just replace the door handle. That's such an easy job.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Crack door frame on a microwave over the stove


That's hard to quantify specifically, but the doors use a pretty strong polycarbonate in most cases.

I would say it took a good bump or hit to crack it.

Amana ACE208 doesn't work with a message 'door'


The door latch receiver has a spring action lever (inside) that is made out of plastic and cracks or wears through. You need to remove the cover and remove the two screws holding the door latch receiver. Now you can switch the top and bottom piviot switchs, putting the top one lower and the lower one on top..make sense? you"ll understand when you see it.
