Easy fix and a heck of a lot cheaper then buying a new one. I replaced mine some yrs back, don't remember the exact procedure, but I do remember I did NOT have to remove the microwave, and it was not difficult.

My foggy mind seems to recall that you remove the facial plate around the door and you will get access to the bolts/screws to remove the door.

You should be able to google for parts, and you tube may even have a video on the repair.

ON EDIT: My memory has recollected that when the facial is removed you will see the door latch workings. The door does not have to be removed. Its a cheap plastic latch that breaks. I tried glueing it and it didn't last long, so I just replaced it. Like I stated earlier, the parts are cheap, the fix easy.

thanks. on the move for a couple days. Will try to get into it once we get settled.

My DH repaired my Sharp Carousel Micro/Convection twice. First time the turntable motor needed replacing and the second, he replaced the door latch which broke. He never removed the appliance. He googled the repairs on YouTube and accomplished both with minimal effort. So before you go to the trouble of removing the microwave, google youtube and see how to fix it.

The cost of new unit maybe less than repair - make a phone call to repair shop to determine.


Convection/Microwave ovens are quite expensive ($600+) so a repair by comparison would be quite inexpensive. I have worked on a Sharp in the past and it does require it be removed. I could not figure out the problem but a local repair shop fixed it for about $50.

this part - Thank you for all the replies, we were able to access the broken part without removing the microwave. We had to remove 3 screws across the bottom and two screws in the front vent. Then we were able to pull the control panel up about a quarter inch and access the part. We have one on order. When we saw the part, it was obvious that the left "ear" was broken.

Common issue with any microwave, I know when this happens to our Sharp Convection microwave it will be fixed rather than thrown out. As seen above part to remedy this is cheap, I always buy two so there is no delay, having kids this plastic part breaks often.
