Question about Sharp R-1870 Convection/Microwave Oven
Latch won't work door won't open
The service manuals you need are here and here.
This is often a broken door open lever or door open button.
You should be able to remove the controller assembly (see video here) and see the parts you need to check.
If not, you will need to remove the oven from the wall.
You can order Sharp parts from Encompass here.

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.

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.
We have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, linked here: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
We also have this full service manual at our site: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/R1480_R1481_R1482_sm.pdf
Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

The door does come apart. Open the door and where the hinges are, there are openings where the hinges enter the door, this plastic piece (goes all the way around the door) With a small flat blade screws driver VERY carefully pry it (plastic) off, once off, check the latch end for the spring, typical failure for a Sharp is the little tab that the spring hooks to on the door, the only way to repair this so it will last is to replace the door frame. they are not too expensive, about $50 or so Part# FCOVB166KIT
is the door frame assy

is a problem in one of the damper-related components, most likely the
switch, but it may also be the motor or the damper door.
The damper is a door inside that opens or closes depending on cooking mode. If the controller senses that the door is not in the right position, it will shut down the cook cycle.
Sharp models stop after 59 seconds.
See the attached sample photo for a typical damper assembly.
We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded it to our site here and here to help you. You will need the free Adobe Reader to view or print it.
If a switch is all you need, we offer a universal type for only $5 postpaid which you can order here.
