Not one specifically to this model. You must take the cover off and check the wiring from the board to the bulb. If the wires are intact then check the bulb socket , its contacts might be off.
If the circuit with the bulb in is intact then check the relay (or the triac - depending on the version) that is powering it.

First remember this is a microwave which is very dangerous if the energy escapes the chamber so you want to be very sure that you have a good seal around the door before operating the unit. Now with that said I would check the vertical movement of the door to see if it moves up and down more than 1/4 inch you should not use it. When you say that the door will not close I am not sure what you mean. Obviously if the door doesn't close the unit will not run because there are safety switches to prevent this for your protection. I would look at the original problem which is the door will not close. Find out why and get back to me. I can probably resolve this for you.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

The problem could be the high voltage fuse or the magnatron assembly. replace both to be safe. good luck.

Does it operate with a membrane-type touchpad?

These things seem to be problematic as the microwave ages.

They are usually replaceable, and the cost is not great. I just installed a new touchpad on an LG, and it cost $25.00 plus shipping.

To many variables and testing needed to explain, but my feeling is that the board is faulty. Have had that happen on a few occasions but with a different brand. On occasion ive seen microwave come on when door is opened but that was loose limit switches for the door latch. Normally humming is due to a faulty magnatron, but it can also be from incorrect voltage onto the magnatron due to the faulty board. Need to concider if repair cost is worth it even though Sharp is excellent microwave.If you do, i would start with the board.

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.

Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch and fuse.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).

Sounds like cycling the power line did it.
