Question about Sharp R-1870 Convection/Microwave Oven
I suspect that the lower door latch has broken off. The lower hook is actuated by the push lever and in turn lifts the upper latch that of course is not being lifted.
Disconnect from the supply.
Remove the case from the microwave and you will see how the door latch actuator works. Lift it manually and you can open the door.
Do not try and use the appliance in that condition as it will take out its mains fuse as the door switches and latches for a safety interlock.
Hope this helps.
