Question and Answers

Q:

I have a sharp microwave model R-1480 R-1480 Sharp Microwave oven

A:

Thank you for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com. 

Anytime a microwave needs repairs, including the door, you risk undue microwave exposure. The door helps insulate the microwaves and unless it's done properly, you could be in risk.

I would really recommend calling a service technician to help on this one. The door assembly itself for this model has been discontinued and is no longer available for purchase.

If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the repair, click here to be directed to the page to set up service. 

Let me know if I can be of any further assistance and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Although we provide do-it-yourself repair help on almost every appliance, we do not provide technical help for microwaves. Microwaves contain high-voltage components that can retain a lethal electrical charge of up to 2200 VAC -- even when the microwave is unplugged. Repairs and adjustments, even minor ones such as replacing fuses, can cause microwave leakage. A microwave shielding leakage test should be performed after any microwave service. It is for these safety reasons that we are unable to guide you in microwave repairs and instead recommend scheduling service with a qualified service technician. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME. We thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope we can help you with other questions and repairs in the future.

Based on this information, you should be able to return the part to Sears PartsDirect. You can call them at 1-800-252-1698 to arrange that return. If you need more help, let us know.

This kind of issue is usually cause by the failure of the door latches. Microwaves are not good do-it-yourself projects. I do not recommend that you attempt this repair if you are not an experienced technician. Microwaves are inherently dangerous to service. They contain high voltage internal component that can retain a lethal electrical charge even when the microwave is completely unplugged. A microwave shielding leakage test must be performed on the unit using proper testing equipment following any internal component access or repair before the microwave can safely be returned to service. The door has essential shielding components that must be assembled properly.

I know it seems ridiculous to pay someone for such an easy repair but when it comes to the safety of you and your family, it is worth it. We will gladly give repair advice on all other appliances. You can have the microwave repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website to set up service: Sears Home Services . Due to the age of the unit, it may be more cost efficient to replace the microwave rather than repair it. I provided you with a link to our Sears.com site to view the newer microwaves. I hope this helps.
