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

How to repair a broken lower door hinge?

You may need to remove the microwave off the wall but lets try this first. Unplug the micro and then remove the screws around the bottom cover plate. The cover should drop down--watch the wiring to the light system mounted to the cover. Now look at the bottom hinge area. Can yo see and access the screws to the hinge??? Should be 2 or 3 screws. If you can get to them then you can change the hinge there. Tape the door in place so it doesn't drop while doing the repair. If you can't see the screws, you may need to pull the micro off the wall and remove the outer case to do the repair. In some rare cases the hinges are welded to the case and not replaceable.

Most of them you do have to carefully pry. You look on the inside of the door and you will see the choke seal. It runs around the whole outer edge on the inside of the door. Take a butter knife or a small screw driver and start to pop it up and out of the door. Slowly work around the door until it is completely free. Once you get that out you will see the door hook and will just have to look how it is mounted into the door. There will be a spring attached to it to allow it to pull up and down as the door is opened and closed. Make note of where the spring is attached to the inside of the door frame. It will have to hook onto your new part and back on the inner door.

Replace door

Pretty simple actually, open the door and remove the clipped on black trim that surrounds the edge by prying with a putty knife or similar flat edge- be careful not to break the latches. Inside and under the trim is a few screws that allow you to seperate the inner and outer door. Once you have the outer door off you can lift the inner door from the pinned hinges. Rerverse to install.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

You have to remove the door handle screw(s) and the door handle, then look for subtle clips that may be holding the outer door screen in place.

Some models have two screws holding the door handle, but some have only one. In that case, remove the screw, then you either lift or rotate the handle to free it.

If you still need help, please write me at for the service manual link (no charge, no obligation).

How to install latch and spring in microwave door

You need to know where the 'catches' are inside the choke cover on the door to remove it carefully without breaking anything or marring the cover. You might get inside and find that the post for mounting the return spring has broken and that is part of the outer door panel.

Door Disassembly

Actually, the spring is probably okay. What breaks is either the latch head (with the hook-like protrusions) OR the spring mounting tab on the inner side of the outer door panel. The spring connects to both of these parts. The outer door panel is not availablke as a separate part, so if that's where the break is, you'll have to get a bit creative and clean it squeaky and use epoxy (like JB Weld, but never use "super glue") or you can drill into the panel slightly and install a small screw eye or glue it in place. Even if the spring mount on the inner door panel is not yet broken, while you're in there, it's a good idea to clean it squeaky and add some epoxy to strengthen it. To get to the screws, you have to remove the choke cover (see sample photo below). It's usually not necessary and is better not to remove the door. You can set the oven on its left side on a table top, open the door carefully, and ease it down to the table top. Then you have a level, stable area to work on the door. If the problem is the latch head (ref # 5-2-2) then I would recommend replacing that part instead of gluing it. That's because the new part may be an improved version. Plus you'll start out fresh. The part # is LSTPPB030MRF0 (zero on the end, not an "oh") You can order Sharp parts from You can find a helpful exploded view of the door here:
