Question about Sharp R-530BS Microwave Oven

Open Question

Door will not open. Pushing on the large button that opens the door has no effect - the button gives virtually no resistance for about 1/4" of travel, then pretty complete resistance and it does not open the latch.

SOURCE: Directions to remove and open door panel to repair safety door latch.

You don't have to remove door to remove panel. Panel is held in by an outer plastic retainer which can be removed by carefully prying with a small screwdriver. I can be replaced by pushing it back in place after repair is completed. If you cannot open door from the outside, remove cover and you can see latches. Pry up on latch which will let door open.

It may be the latch head spring or the door open lever or button.

DOOR SPRING LATCH HEAD HOOK


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 have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see how it goes together.

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

DOOR OPENING BUTTON LEVER

What usually breaks is the door open lever, but it may also be that the rear side of the door open button has worn down too far to work.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be removed.

Please unplug the oven first.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

You can usually find exploded views and part numbers for Sharp models by entering your model number at the Sears parts site.

If not, let me know. We have many Sharp manuals and if we have yours, we can link you to it at no charge.

The best place to order Sharp parts is
Encompass (formerly Tritronics).

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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

When I open the Panasonic microwave oven door by pushing in the door opening button, the oven starts immediately


There is evidently a fault with the door interlock switches. Don't use it as the oven may avtually be emitting microwaves with the door open.

Get a service tech to quote you for repair as it may be more economical to buy a new one, when you will have a warranty.

Do not try to repair it yourself unless you have detailed knowledge as there are components inside which can deliver a lethal shock even when the oven is not plugged in.

The door no longer pops open when the latch button is pushed. How do I fix this?


One of the door latch arms or the latching mechanism inside the oven have broken. you may have to buy a complete door lock / latching assembly . Might not be worth it. Check with your nearest parts supplier.

I have a 10 year old MH7130XE Whirlpool microwave oven. The oven and key pad both work, and the oven heats just fine. The problem is the oven begins running as soon as you open the door...without pushing...


I'm assuming you mis-typed and meant the oven begins running when you SHUT the door and stops when you OPEN the door. Please tell me this is what you meant! If the microwave oven runs with the door open, UPLUG IT IMMEDIATELY AND DO NOT USE IT!!!

If the oven begins running without pushing the start button then the controller is bad or the Start button is worn out and making contact without pushing it. (Most likely it is your controller.) Generally, it is not worth the cost to replace the controller on a 10 year old microwave. Probably time for a new one.

But if you want, you can call Whirlpool and see what they suggest at 800-253-1301.

If this was helpful, please select YES to the first two RATINGS questions. Good Luck!

Unable to open the microwave door since this morning. the oven still works but its closed. when press at the bottom right side corner, the door supposed to be open.


More than likely, the little lever behind the button has broken. You may notice there is less resistance when pushing the button, but perhaps not if your model has a spring behind the button as well. If your handy, you could remove the front panel and take a look at it, but if you dont feel comfortable doing this, it may be equally as expensive to repair this as it would be to buy a brand new one. I'm assuming its out of warranty at this point, but if not, send it back!

MICROWAVE DOOR WILL NOT OPEN.


Please post the brand name and model number so we can have the best chance to help you.

But generally you will see a plastic lever that is touching both the door open button and the area of the door switches.

That lever is what breaks most often, and if you will push up on the door hooks (latch heads) , the door will open.

Pushing on the door open button repeatedly while looking inside will help you figure it out, too.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Door won't open


Im sorry to say, but the housing will have to come off to unlatch the door from the inside.Not difficult ,Unplug the unit and remove all of the screws around the top of the housing cover if any,also
rear and both sides will have to come out.When they have all been removed, lift the rear of the top housing cover and pull back.You will be able to see where the two door latches are locked in place.With a screwdriver,you can push up on the bottom latch and the door will open. All this can be done without spilling the milk inside.Just slide the microwave around slowly to get to the screws.The broken part inside should be able to be replaced.Contact repair parts center.

Stuck Microwave door


In most cases this is due to a broken door opening lever or loose or broken door latch / hook parts. They can only be accessed and examined if the cover is removed from the microwave. In many over the range models, you can access the door parts by removing the control panel assembly. Sometimes you may be able to get it open by pushing up gently on the bottom of the door while pushing the button, in case you need to empty it.
