Actually, you shouldn't need to remove it from the wall to change the door switches or latch head.

We have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

We have a partial service manual for that unit at our site, and it has the wiring diagram (helpful to be sure it all gets back right).

The manual is at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r1380_r1381_sm.pdf

Feel free to contact me directly if you have other questions.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: Sharp Carousel Microwave door latch stopped working door won't stay closed

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.

SOURCE: R-4H84 Sharp Carousel II microwave oven stoped working

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

The fuse is normally located on the floor of the chassis behind the control panel or between the door switches.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO) / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the magnetron thermostat to open.

Then when it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

When checking thermostats, if it has a hood fan thermostat, that should read open, as opposed to the others, which should read closed.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

You should do a continuity test on the fuse while it's in the holder (with the microwave unplugged, of course) then turn the fuse by hand or take it out and put it back in, then test it again.

If you remove the fuse, then press the meter leads against the ends, it can allow internal contact to be made and make a bad fuse appear to be good.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You put a mounting plate on the wall behind where the unit will be mounted. Then the microwave hooks onto the bottom of the mounting plate and you swing it up to the cabinet above it. Then you must screw 2 mounting screws through the floor of the cabinet above into the bracket on top of the microwave.

Sharp has a model 1214 that could work, but it is a little over 15" deep and will therefore not recess entirely into a 12" deep upper cabinet. I believe the install kit comes with it?

I have a Sharp Carousel II microwave oven mounted above the range. It went dead when I pushed the start switch. The circuit breaker to the unit was not tripped. I don't know where to find the model number...


Model number is on the side of the control or along he bottom of the frame. The control panel should be removable with a screw or 2 and sliding up to unlatch. the fuse is behind there. To remove it off the wall there is 2 screws coming down from the cabinet above and the unit tips towards you and lifts up off a lip on the back plate. Eric

Installation of undercabinet microwave


If the OTR is the same model, the mounts should be the same. As long as you use the same bolts/screws from the old one, or the same length new bolts/screws, it should be a fairly simple exchange.

Most likely a shorted capacitor and a blown fuse. Very common problem on that model.

Microwave installation under cabinet, no rear wall


Your model weighs 41 pounds empty.

That - plus maybe adding another 8-10 pounds for safety - us what your installation needs to be able to handle.

I would think the average cabinet could handle that, but it may be better to add a small steel plate or large washer surrounding the mounting screws to help disperse the weight load.

The owner's manual describes the installation kit you can use to mount it in a cabinet or in the wall, etc. That may be helpful.

If you don't still have your manual you can download it here.

I don't hear the fan, the carousel doesn't spin, nothing works but touchpad & light


It sounds like you may have an intermittent door switch or loose door switch mount.

Does it work differently when you wiggle the door?
