You have a broken tab on your door open button (drawing ref. 3-2-4) or a broken door lever (ref # 4-25).

The button is normally held out by the spring.

You can find the entire service manual for the R1870/R1871 at our site here.

Yes, to take down the face you must have the unit fully accessible - the bolts are accessible only from the rear.

Can not open the door in microwave the release button springs seem to not working can that be fixed. Have opened the release button but cannot see the problem


Do not pry the door open since there is an easier remedy which will lead you in the direction that you need to fix your problem. Take the cover off after you disconnect the power to it. Once you have taken the cover off (only a few screws) you will be able to see the two latches that hold the door closed and the link that opens both of them. You can just lift both latches at the same time and it will open. After you have done that take a good look and press in on the open door button and you will see where you have the problem of the door hanging. That button should push a linkage that pushes up on both latches at once to open the door. It is spring loaded so that it comes back down so that when you close the door it will hold the door close.You need to take the cover off the microwave so that you can pull both of the latches that hold the door closed up. When you push the button in it engages a linkage that pushes both taches up at the same time to open the door. It is springloaded and will come back down during normal operation to hold the door closed when you close it again. That area is where your problem is. By looking at what happens when you press the open door button you should be able to readily see where the problem lies in that linkage

My Sharp R-1870F microwave in our rv heats intermittantly and the turn table is stuck. Any advice?


Hello,

Check the oven door if it locks up, the oven has an automatic feature that when it is not closed properly it won't initialize. Since it heats up intermittently I think the heating capabalities of the microwave is still good, and this problem might be just due to something that is preventing it to operate. which most likely the the locks of the door.

MICROWAVE GOLD MICRO DOES NOT OPEN


sound likes the push button spring broke or popped out of place. if you unplug unit remove all screws going around the back edges. take panel off all the way around ,then you will be able to check spring and bbutton. the ones ive worked on the puch button cradle is usually broken and can be replaced as long as its not 20-30 yrs old.do it yourself 15-30 dollars in shop repair 65-95, in home service around 85-145.00 dollars. depending were you live.

Spacemaker II door latch problem


Most microwave ovens have catches that are shaped like hooks, these hooks catch on a fixed bolt or a raise in the frame of the oven.

The next time you get the oven open check these hooks to see if the springs are working in a strong positive manner, or if you have to push a button on the model check to see that the button releases the hooks.

Hope this helps.
