Question about Sharp R-1610 Microwave Oven
Hi I accidentally broke the top door latch off my panasonic s550bf and now the Microwave won't turn on. The latch mechanism is still intact but I guess there is a sensor inside the frame that won't allow the microwave to turn on. How can I replace the latch or fix the sensor?
Do you still have the piece that broke off? If so, you may be able to use two part epoxy to glue it back in place. I did this with a colaric MW and it did the trick. The latch was hook shaped and made from a hard plastic. Pete

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Scott Noble - If I was in your position, I personally will recommend consulting a certified technician first for an accurate diagnosis. Depending on what part(s) is damaged from the door, the microwave could possibly have faulty switches, door switches, or latch which only a professional can repair.
