Sharp R-305KS door release problem

Yes it is possible the door open lever got broken in shipping.

If your model has anti-tamper screws, you can remove them using using a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100 screwdriver. If the correct tool is not available, there are several ways to remove the screws:

- Use a hammer and a small punch or similar tool to knock out the middle post of the screw, then use a standard T20 Torx bit to remove the screws. (Use safety glasses).

- Insert a small flat-bladed screwdriver (such as a jeweler’s type) into the slot between the post and the edge, tap the screwdriver firmly with a hammer to loosen the screw, grip the screwdriver with pliers, and remove the screw.

- Use a hacksaw or Dremel tool to cut a slot in the head of the screw, then use a flat-bladed screwdriver to remove the screws. (Use safety glasses).

Once the cover's off, you can see the door opening parts. It's probably the lever.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

Microwave doesn't cook

If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, TV's can store very high voltages. If you hear an unusual buzzing noise, the magnetron (the component that actually generates the microwaves) or other electronic module may be broken. If you hear nothing, you might have a defective transistor on the main printed circuit board. This is not easily fixed; contact a service technician. You can try the "find a microwave repair..." link from the product page. Good luck!

Sharp Drawer Microwave SMD2489ES. All indications of *****.

It is a motorized drawer and I doubt it likes being opened manually. It would need to be repaired professionally due to the inherent dangers of microwave energy. The drawer motor would be operated by a relay. Did you read any reviews before you purchased it? IanFromOhio a year ago Thumbs Down - Looks great but features are bad. Drawer microwaves and this model in particular look great. We did a big reno in December and this is now in the island. Looks good and functions as a basic microwave. Everything else is just south of mediocre. I'd suggest you get a drawer microwave from another company. Bad Stuff: - door opens/closes very slowly (~4 seconds)... doing a 30 second reheat now takes 4+4+30+4+4 = 50% longer just standing around. Likely similar with other drawers, but an unexpected negative. - doesn't let you tell it to start until fully closed - its default sounds and reminders are ridiculously annoying - beep-beep-beep on finish, and 10 seconds after that, and 10 seconds after that, and.... on and on - it forgets all settings during a power outage, turning back on the annoying sounds - and forgets your network connection - but good news, you won't want to use that feature - controls are not intuitive - classic 40 buttons where you use 5 The WiFi & App - hilariously bad. Design in your head the things you would want in a microwave app. Sharp engineers designed the opposite. Can you set the alarm settings in the app? No. Do you get a notification each time the microwave finishes cooking? Yes. I guarantee you will delete the app within 48 hours. Hand Wave to open. Neat right? No. Take how long it takes for this thing to open/close and add another 4-8 seconds of waving your hands (which are full food, else you'd just press the button) to then wait for the drawer to open. Push to close works well, but it reacts in a weird way, so some concern I'm breaking it. I stopped doing wave to open after the first week and stopped trying to demonstrate it to friends after one month (cause it will make you look silly). Height - just tall enough - fits a Venti coffee Cooks at 950 watts - basically the same power as a college-dorm microwave Cost. my god, how much did I spend on this. The good: Looks good Flush install if you have a good installer; mine is shown in a 30" wide lower microwave cabinet by Medallion Reheat sensor cook works well push to close works. It was suggested that I buy a Sharp because they have the patent on the drawer microwave and everyone else is just a re-labelled Sharp. I would suggest you give the others a look. They may be using the same hardware, but hopefully they have a more customer-focused interface and better software engineers working for them. Reviewed on

On my Sharp CD-C492, the door for CD doesn't open and it say E-03, how can I fix it ?

The E-03 error on a Sharp CD-C492 CD player typically indicates a problem with the door or the mechanism that opens and closes the door. Here are a few steps you can try to fix the issue:
  1. Check for foreign objects: Make sure that there are no foreign objects blocking the door or preventing it from opening.
  2. Check the door hinges: Inspect the hinges on the door to ensure that they are not damaged or stuck. If the hinges are damaged or stuck, try gently wiggling them to see if this helps free them up.
  3. Check the door switch: Locate the door switch, which is usually located near the hinges on the door. Check to make sure that the switch is functioning properly and that it is not stuck or damaged.
  4. Check the door motor: If the door switch and hinges are functioning properly, the problem may be with the door motor. Check to make sure that the motor is functioning properly and that it is not damaged.
If you are unable to fix the issue using the steps above, or if the error persists, it is recommended to have a qualified technician take a look at the CD player to diagnose and repair the problem

My Sharp Carousel Micro/Convection Oven R-1870, Begans to Blow out Black Smoke when the Microwave option is used. The convection oven works perfectly.

DO NOT use this oven for any of the functions! You will need to get a specialist to look at this! Smoke suggests a motor or the wiring to it is burning out. Is this a free standing unit or a built in setup? Free standing unit or often not too expensive to replace and there are lots of Companies who make good upgrade models. Get quotes for the repairs from 3 or 4 different places and compare that to the cost of a replacement.

I have a Sharp KB6524PS Microwave Drawer and the drawer won't open when the open button is pushed. It beeps but no motion to open.

Lots of issues with this gimmicky microwave. Call for service, the only thing you can try is a power reset. Reviews are not good which is odd for a brand leader like Sharp. ..

How can we fix the door of our Sharp Carousel Convection Microwave Oven Model R-9X56?

This appears to be an Australian model and these are the only spares I can find. They do sell the latches. If the hinges are damaged and causing this, you will feel movement. Looks like it is time for a new one. ..

Sharp R-CD2200M Microwave Maintenance Mode CC1,2,&3 magnetron hours exceeded.

If it shuts down it is faulty. Take it in for professional repair. They are too dangerous to work on. There is 125,000 volts in the capacitor just waiting for you to get near it. The magnetron will make you blind in about 15 seconds and the core is a poisonous heavy metal. It is a $2,190.00 commercial microwave so worth getting repaired professionally. It must have earned its money. Service Manual, and note: WARNING TO SERVICE PERSONNEL: Microwave ovens contain circuitry capable of producing very high voltage and current, contact with following parts may result in a severe, possibly fatal, electrical shock. (High Voltage Capacitor, High Voltage Power Transformer, Magnetron, High Voltage Rectifier Assembly, High Voltage Harness etc..)

Sharp SMC0912BS turns on by it self and stops only when plug is pulled. Then starts again when plugged in again.

Replace the contaminated door interlock switches and check the control panel.

How do I get the actual part no. for a Sharp carousel microwave model no. R-510HK

You can't, you take it to a Sharp Service Centre. The magnetron has a poisonous heavy metal core and the capacitor holds a heart shopping 20,000 volts. The microwave emissions can make you blind in 8 to 10 seconds. The case has security screws to stop you getting inside the case. At 17 years old, you should be replacing it. Having said that, "they don't make them like they used to". Wave guide cover appears easy to get, the magnetron not so easy. My guess is that is is a dealer only spare. ..
